About Shannon

I have lived many different places and have a wide range of life experiences to draw from that I can impart to others. I get great satisfaction out of helping young people become stronger students in areas they are struggling with. As a parent of a child who has struggled with attention issues I have mastered the art of organization and study skills. Building a strong base is the key to academic success! Whether it is a quiet library or a crowded coffee house I appreciate and can accommodate different styles of learning and schedules.

Please check out my ratings and verified subjects! Having used Wyzant in the past to tutor students I look forward to helping new students achieve their goals. I also have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from the University of South Carolina. In the past I home-schooled my own child (now in 5th), an emerging A student after a long struggle with the classroom environment.

I have extensive knowledge in many natural subjects including general science, earth science, meteorology and biology. With a strong talent for writing and an insatiable love for books ELA subjects are a pleasure. I love the outdoors and have tons of hobbies from exploring local spots to fishing. I also grew up in the country and worked on farms for several years - probably where I learned what hard work is!

I enjoy traveling, and have been many places including an enriching year in Japan where I was able to experience a vastly different culture. I served 4 years in the United States Marines studying atmospheric science and meteorology supporting the Air Wing and also the Presidential Helicopter Squadron. I have a Secret Security Clearance and a background check on file with WyzAnt.com.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

As a mother of a youngster that struggled early on, I am aware of the challenges that parents face in today's educational system. Not to worry though, with a lot of diligence and patience he is now doing excellent in all areas but this was tougher than teaching a teenager with great study skill! It is not easy to understand the basics of learning. Since we all learned how to read and write etc. early on, we don't really recall the "how" of it all. Above all though, the greatest challenge is getting kids to feel good about learning. Confidence building is the foundation for children to build their learning skills upon. If you are having trouble getting your young one to actually want to learn and have a positive outlook on school, or the concepts being utilized are elusive and confusing to you, let me help. I am currently homeschooling my 2nd grader to for no other reason than to ensure he receives the best education possible. I would be honored to do the same for yours.

Elementary Science

Science is my specialty. Please view my subject qualifications!

English

Don't wait! As we roll into the school year spots get filled quickly. An experienced tutor can ensure students do their best, BEFORE things get overwhelming.

Grammar

English grammar, giving you a foundation for further learning. Writing and grammar skills are essential in any line of work, at any age, and for any reason. Words, thought, spoken, and written, help focus and define activity, clearing away the noise of the day.

Social Studies

I have taught social studies to my son while homeschooling. I have also taken several American Government courses at my University. As an active parent and student myself I am always getting involved in the community and helping my son learn about different aspects of his local community that exemplify the institutions that provide us with social programs and opportunities.

Study Skills

As a college senior I am no stranger to the challenges of getting organized, time management, task completion and information gathering techniques. Using the following methods I can help your student become focused, productive and confident in their developing study skills.
- Memorization such as rehearsal and rote
- Communication skills e.g. reading and listening
- Cues e.g. flashcard training
- Condensing information, summarizing and the use of keywords
- Visual imagery
- Acronyms and mnemonics
- Exam strategies
- Time management, organization and lifestyle changes

Using my techniques will strengthen study habits, allow greater organization of materials and thought and increase productivity.

Track & Field

As a former U.S. Marine I can help your student with any fitness concerns they may have. Having a healthy body is an integral part of having a healthy mind.

Volleyball

I played volleyball all through school growing up and well into adulthood as a favorite past time. I would love to show you some tips that will have you spiking balls on and off the beach this summer!
