About Shellyn

Greetings! I am just the hybrid tutor that you are looking for as a web developer with a passion in teaching!

My major in college years allowed me to utilize a variety of computer software as a means to create art. I have experience with graphics, web design, animation and even video and audio editing, but my favorite area of specialty is what I do now as a career, web development.

In addition, I also love love love to teach! I get excited learning new things, but I get even more excited when I get to share that with others so that they too can experience that same feeling when everything makes sense. I minored in teaching when I was in college and I've been able to apply those concepts to all kinds of positions ranging from one-on-one tutoring to summer technology camp for kids as well as positions in an after-school tutoring institute as well as teaching coworkers in the corporate environment.

Being a web developer, I have been working with HTML and CSS for about a decade now and I also have a few years of experience with JavaScript and JQuery as well. I know my way around a variety of content management systems and have specifically work heavily with WordPress.

I'm also very well acquainted with the Adobe Suite. Photoshop and Dreamweaver have been my close buddies for almost 15 years and I also have experience working with vector graphics in Illustrator and InDesign. I also have experience with Flash as well as video editing in Premier and Final Cut Pro.

Not only do I use Photoshop on a regular basis for all my web work, but I am also a hobby photographer so I get to use Photoshop for the photo editing aspect as well. I even taught Photoshop to students at a summer technology camp in the context of photo manipulation as well as for website graphics. I don't know how I can live without Photoshop in my life and I'd love to be able to help add this handy tool to your toolkit!

Give me my two passions of tech and teaching and that's when the magic happens! :)

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.


I am self-taught in CSS after learning HTML. I started designing and coding from scratch, one simple website each week for a couple years for a job and that boosted my design, HTML and CSS skills. I eventually took a web design course that covered the foundations of HTML and CSS, which solidified my experience with CSS.


Dreamweaver was the first program I learned to use for writing HTML when I first took web design courses in college 13 years ago and is my go-to program even today. I started out using the design view in conjunction with the code view, but eventually leaned mainly on the code view. However, the design view has many great features that help a user do the same HTML functions, but quicker and is easier visually. I've taken official Dreamweaver courses and also taught Dreamweaver to students at a technology summer camp so I know my way around very well in this program.


I have been using computers since childhood and have always been fascinated with them. I took every opportunity to explore not just the necessary functions to get to the programs I needed, but I enjoyed learning how to change settings and tweak things. I grew up on a PC, but started on a Mac for work in 2009 and never looked back. I picked up the differences really quickly and now prefer to use Macs for work and personal use. I am well versed with the shortcut keys, settings and functionality and am able to figure out what I don't know.

Microsoft Outlook

I've used Microsoft Outlook since seven years ago and have used regular MS Outlook as well as MS Outlook Express and have working experience helping clients troubleshoot their Outlook issues. I've had to set up Outlook as well as configure settings time and time again in various computer setups from Mac to PC and various versions of Outlook as well. I have also used the integrated calendar associated with Outlook and have set options for out of office replies, personal signatures and more.

Microsoft Windows

I grew up since childhood using PC's. I loved everything about computers and was always fascinated with learning more and tweaking things. Once Microsoft Windows came about, I was excited to play with settings and learn how to navigate around. I quickly picked up Microsoft Windows and all the intricacies of settings and where to find things. When I needed to troubleshoot or upgrade my computer, I learned where I needed to go to make those updates and changes and even helped friends when they have computer issues.

Web Design

I majored in computer arts, which included various courses including web design and even also took additional courses to keep up with the current trends during the four years I was working as a full time as a web developer in a corporate setting. I also worked both freelance for individual clients as well as for marketing agencies on and off throughout the past six years. I've tutored one-on-one in web and programming classes and I've also taught small groups of kids at a technology camp in subjects including web design and photoshop.

Amazing tutor — Shellyn is incredibly smart and well versed in the subject. She teaches in such a great way...I actually have learned more in a 4 hour session from her than in 4 weeks from half way through a quarter with my Photoshop professor. She's great, would highly recommend! ...
