I have 18 years of experience working for the Chula Vista Elementary School District, the past 12 years as a teacher for grades k-8. My passion for children's education began in college as a camp counselor and intercession events coordinator.

I graduated from SDSU with a Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences with emphasis in education. I then completed the teacher education program and my student teaching through the San Diego School District. As a parent of 4 grown children, I know how important an education is and feel that all students can reach their full potential through determination and hard work.

I am familiar with and experienced in the newer common core and Go Math teaching methods. Academically, I have always performed well in mathematics and as a teacher I have taught all of the current elementary grade curriculum.

I am familiar with the current state standards and enjoy helping students become proficient in reading fluency and comprehension so that they can achieve success in all subject areas.

I have experience with teaching students in kindergarten through 8th grade. I have taught Special Day Classes as well as provided instruction for RSP students, working one on one and in small groups. I have also tutored adults for the CBEST to help them gain the academic confidence, especially in the math section, and receive a passing score in order to go on and be qualified to teach in the California Elementary schools.

Feel free to contact me and to schedule your first tutoring session.

Through research and experiencing working for the Chula Vista Elementary School district, I have become familiar with the Common Core requirements. When I tutor students I research the requirements for their particular grade level and plan my teaching material accordingly. My experience as a short term as well as a long term substitute teacher has familiarized me with the current common core curriculum which is used in the classroom.

I went to college to be a teacher and in preparation for my student teaching I needed to pass the CBest. My college education prepared me for this and I passed with confidence in this subject matter. I therefore feel that I can tutor others for this test as well.

Great Tutor

Last time she taught about Eclipce. It was very helpful for writing essay in school. And she taught gramma, vocabulary,reading. But I want to give her more homework. Thanks.

Ella, 21 lessons with Shawna

My son (10) learned something his first day!

Shawna arrived on time and had all the material ready. She was patient with my son and connected with him right away. He was a little hesitant about tutoring at first but after this visit has agreed that it adds value and wants to do it again. If you have a child that is struggling in school or just needs to reinforce what's been learned I recommend you set up a lesson with Shawna!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Shawna is a great tutor! She was able to help my boys with their homework lessons and clearly explain to them how to solve their math problems. My boys were not too happy to get a tutor at first but after Shawna left they were smiling and explaining to me how to solve their homework problems. They even thanked me for having Shawna tutor them. We signed up for weekly lessons to keep them on track. I'm looking forward to watching them progress and become more confident in math.

My Son Loves Her!

He was excited to keep learning under the supervision of Ms. Shawna. He is excited to keep taking classes with her and I am very grateful we found her. She is professional and truly cares for the student's advancement.
