Hello!

My name is Shannon and I am a young physician with a passion for education. I have been tutoring and mentoring students for 10 years now, and I consider my students' successes to be some of my greatest accomplishments. I earned my B.S. in Biology Summa Cum Laude and with University Honors from the University of Alabama and earned my M.D. from the University of North Carolina in 2018. My favorite subjects to teach are nursing, medicine, math, science, and test prep (SAT, ACT, and MCAT).

As someone not far removed from school myself, I am uniquely able to connect with my students and meet them where they are to propel them toward success. I realize that math and science can be tricky for many students, but I strive to break concepts down into their manageable parts that give my students a firm foundation for their current course and any future courses to follow. I also have extensive experience with standardized testing and can teach both concepts and test-taking strategy for the ACT, SAT, and MCAT.

I always create a positive learning environment for all of my students, leading to results in any subject. Several of my students have now earned competitive academic scholarships and admission to selective universities. I look forward to working with you and your student!

If ACT Reading is giving you headaches, I have a solution!

Writing

As a physician, I have been through the application process for college, medical school, and residency personally and I have written successful personal statements all along the way. I have now helped more than a dozen students to do the same. My students ahve crafted statements and essay responses for medical school (AAMC and AACOMAS), dental school, and scholarship applications. I work with students in all stages of writing their personal statements, from brainstorming to final edits. Each student I have worked with has walked away from our meetings with a polished personal statement they are proud to share. I am excited to continue offering writing assistance for personal statements and other applications. "truly the best MCAT tutor and personal statement helper" -- Jack, Medical school applicant

CARS tutoring...excellent.

Shannon worked on CARS with my son. He said that she was very knowledgeable and organized. It found the tutoring very constructive and said she was a great help. We have encouraged him to work with her further.

Stephen, 1 lesson with Shannon

Personable and creative

Shannon was able to help me see my med school application questions from a new perspective and brainstormed creative ways to present myself in my answers. She was very personable and knowledgeable, and made the process so easy and painless. I highly recommend a lesson with her if you're having trouble figuring out how to present yourself in short answer questions or personal statements for school applications.

Caity, 1 lesson with Shannon
