About Shellora

I am a graduate of FIU and an AmeriCorps alumni with City Year at Homestead Senior High, where I worked in a 9th grade Algebra 1 class as well as after-school tutoring for grades 9-12 in various subjects. I have had experience with students of all ages. I love spending time with students and helping them to learn new things. The subjects I have experience in includes writing, reading comprehension, math, (up to Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry), life sciences, and social sciences, and history.

Previously, I volunteered as a mentor and tutor at an elementary school, where I assisted students with homework, as well as reading and math skills. I volunteered as a classroom assistant in an ESOL class at a high school where I helped students better their English oral and writing skills, as well as tutoring for any class where they needed help understanding the subject such as history, English, and biology. I also worked in a 10th grade biology class where I assisted students with classwork and was able to create and teach lesson plans. I was a private tutor to college students assisting with research, paper planning, and proofreading as well as math up to Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus, social studies, and biology. In addition, I have taken classes in the UFTeach program where I was able to create lesson plans for life science classes and teach them to students in 5th grade science, 7th grade life science, and 10th grade biology classes.

I also worked as a computer aide for the library adult services for 4 years, where I helped people with computer basics, the internet, and document creation. I also give beginning to intermediate piano lessons. I am a very dependable and trustworthy person, and I love having fun with students.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Phonics

I have many about 10 years of experience working with phonics. Starting when I volunteering from 7th grade - 10th grade with Kindergarten students who needed help with reading skills. I currently tutor two students in Kindergarten who have fallen behind and are unable to read or recognize letters. I use a variety of methods ranging from computer programs, repetition, flash cards, Hooked on Phonics, and word lists to help them learn to their alphabet sounds and start reading.

Piano

I have taught beginning to intermediate piano for the last few years using primarily the Bastien Piano Basic books. I personally have played piano since the age of 6, taken private lessons as well as classes in high school. Students of all ages are welcome.
