About Shelley

Hello! I was a wildlife biologist for 15 years and was laid off 5 years ago. Because it is difficult to find a wildlife biology job, I decided to expand my horizons and enrolled in the Connecticut Department of Higher Education's program to become a certified teacher. Since graduating, I have been a teacher with the Ledyard School District - I have taught high school biology and environmental science as well as 8th grade general science. I thought tutoring may be a challenging and rewarding experience for me while also helping kids on a one-on-one basis. As you can see from my photo, I have two young children of my own, so I know that patience can be one of the most important factors when teaching. Hello!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
