About Shannon

I have spent the past 12 years in the education field. I have been charged with successfully teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science as well as 6th and 7th grade language arts. Additionally, I was a school administrator who was responsible for providing professional development for teachers of all content areas on best practices and the most engaging tools to use while educating students.

My family just recently relocated to the Atlanta area at the beginning of the school year, which is why I am not currently employed with any local school. I miss helping students reach their highest potential, and I feel that I could help a student succeed immensely if I was provided the opportunity to work one on one with them.

I was recognized as "Educator of the Year" in my previous school district; an honor given to one teacher out of 600. My creative, engaging lessons with all ability levels enabled me to be recognized for this award. I have a skill for making content exciting and also relevant to late elementary and middle school students.

Because everyone's time is valuable, I do require a 24 hour notice if a session needs to be cancelled.

Please contact me if you would to be provided with references that can speak to my ability level.

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)

I am a licensed teacher in the state of Georgia for grades 4-9. I also taught 6th grade for 4 years and was regarded as one of the best educator's in my district. I have over 12 years of experience in education and hold a Master's Degree.

Elementary Science

I have taught science to 6-8th graders for five years while I was a full-time educator.

English

I have taught language arts to 6th and 7th graders. While I was an administrator I was charged with ensuring that my teachers were complying to core curriculum and implementing best practices.

Reading

I have a reading endorsement and taught specific reading comprehension skills to 6th graders for several years.

Study Skills

Over the course of being a teacher and administrator for 12 years, instructing students how to study was one of my main focuses. I've researched the best practices in terms of how to organize class information to determine what is the most relevant and likely to appear on an assessment.

Additionally, I've tutored students from grade 4 to graduate level on how to adequately prepare for summative assessments.
