About Shauna

I love learning and sharing my knowledge with others. I majored in psychology and Spanish and have a certification for teaching piano. Although I do not have a degree in education, I have been teaching Sunday school at church for over 10 years and have 8 years of experience teaching piano and violin. I have 1 year of experience as a private tutor. The greatest joy for me as a teacher is seeing students begin to grasp concepts and learn to love the material they are learning.

I love all things numbers! Algebra is my favorite. In high school, I received a 5 on the AP Calculus exam.

I love to read and write! I want to share this love with others in hopes of them getting as much joy out of it as I do.

I have experience teaching young children their alphabet and beginning phonics.

I had a 4.0 GPA in high school and college and have solid study skills to make this happen.

I love children and I love to teach. I have a flexible schedule and am willing to travel to students' home or to do online tutoring.

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.

Handwriting

As a nanny, daycare worker, and Sunday school teacher, I have worked with children of many ages. One of the tasks that I have taught children is handwriting. I use tracing and slowly fade it away to help children learn to write various words. I usually start with letters and work towards the child's name.

Phonics

I have babysat/nannied children for many years. The majority of the children were between the ages of 2-5. I have assisted in teaching them their letters, sounds, as well as beginning words. I also worked as an ABA therapist where we were trained how to to introduce and expand on new topics including letters and word recognition.

Piano

I have been playing the piano for almost 22 years. I began taking lessons at age 6 and began teaching them at age 19. I have 8 years of experience teaching private lessons both in the students' homes and in a music studio. I have taught all ages and all levels.

Study Skills

I did well in school since elementary school. I got straight A's throughout elementary and middle school, and I also received a 4.0 GPS in both high school and college. As a freshman in high school, I also took a note-taking an study skills class.

Track & Field

I began running for fun 14 years ago. Eight years ago I joined the cross country and track team at the college I was attending. I was one of the top 7 runners on my team for 2 years. During this time, I also ran road races, and since 2010, I have run 6 marathons, 2 of which were the Boston Marathon (a race that requires qualification).

Violin

I started playing the violin 18 years ago. I have 5 years of experience teaching lessons as well. Lessons took place in-home as well as in a private music studio. I also participated in orchestras for 7 years.
