About Shirley


Bio

My 35 years of teaching include public, private, and college level instruction. In addition, I have tutored students individually in all areas of the language arts. I have taught the reading and writing components for SAT and GED preparation. I find tutoring extremely rewarding because students can freely express their questions and misunderstandings, thereby receiving immediate feedback and experiencing personal satisfaction and self confidence.

My 35 years of teaching include public, private, and college level instruction. In addition, I have tutored students individually in all areas of the language arts. I have taught the reading and writing components for SAT and GED preparation. I find tutoring extremely rewarding because students can freely express their questions and misunderstandings, thereby receiving immediate feedback and experiencing personal satisfaction and self confidence.

My expertise includes the teaching of all aspects of English language arts, specifically critical reading strategies, advanced levels of vocabulary, literature, grammar, and writing skills. Recently retired from public education, my schedule can be very flexible. Providing tutoring sessions at the local library would be quite convenient. I look forward to helping students who understand the value of a good education in today's competitive world.

I have years of experience in all the language arts, and I am knowledgeable in state standards and Core Curriculum. I have written curriculum and evaluated test questions for state testing. I am highly experienced in the scaffolding students need to increase their understandings. I am patient and understand that all students learn at different rates and in different ways.

I look forward to working with you and hope you will contact me soon. There is no time to waste when it comes to getting a superior education.

Awesome tutor, patient, and reliable!

Mrs. Shirley has been a pleasure working with. She is professional at all times, and communicate effectively with me regarding my son progress. Also she's reliable and arrives each session ready to assist my son. Mrs. Shirley has been teaching my son how to develop acceptable work habits and study skills. Most of all, my son enjoys working with Mrs. Shirley, and we both appreciate her time.

Shirley has an organized approach to tutoring and is more than prepared for each session.

Andrea, 6 lessons with Shirley

Shirley was very knowledgeable and patient!

After the completion of the assessment, Shirley reviewed each sentence that was incorrect and correct. She immediately identified my weakness. I would highly recommend Shirley to future students and adults.
