Bio

Hello everyone! I love learning! My hope is that my love for learning will overflow onto my students. I really love to help students understand a subject--I love the moment when "the light turns on" and I can see when my student totally understands what I just taught.

The rate I charge per hour is based on the complexity of the subject, and the length of time I need to prep (for example, I will read books with my literature clients, and though I do not charge for my reading time, I do...

Hello everyone! I love learning! My hope is that my love for learning will overflow onto my students. I really love to help students understand a subject--I love the moment when "the light turns on" and I can see when my student totally understands what I just taught.

The rate I charge per hour is based on the complexity of the subject, and the length of time I need to prep (for example, I will read books with my literature clients, and though I do not charge for my reading time, I do charge a higher rate because I have to read for several hours before we meet).

In March 2020, I received my TEFL 40 (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certificate, I have a Masters in Business, a Masters in Finance, a Bachelors in Criminal Justice Administration, and FINRA Series 6 and 63 licenses. I graduated with honors in both my MBA and my Bachelor's degree. Over the year, I developed certain study skills that helped me succeed, and help my students succeed, too!

I have excellent skills in English, Grammar, and Literature. In March, I studied for and achieved my TEFL 40 (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certificate. Now, I am studying for my TEFL 160 Certificate (160-hour). In addition to my English and Grammar skills, I am also proficient in APA citations, references, and formatting.

I am a mentor with iCouldbe--a program for at-risk high school students. I encourage high school students to stay in school, do their best, and go on to college. During the school year, I mentor up to five high school students online at a time, helping them choose a career path, or a college path. I work with each of my assigned students all school year, answer any questions they have about my profession or my degrees, and help them progress through the program.

Law

As a teenager, I worked for a law firm. My love of law developed from there and I defended myself when I drove across a "farmers lane" to get home from school faster, objecting when the officer provided evidence that was not present the night I was stopped and impressing the judge enough to ask me how I had gained my experience in law. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with my Bachelors in Criminal Justice Administration in 2008. In addition, I have helped attorneys and private investigators, from time-to-time, when they needed research for a case.

March 13, 2020 Received Advanced Certificate in Teaching English Online, Accreditation of TEFL/TESOL and Training. In addition to my certification, I have tutored many ESL students online, and in person. I believe strongly that all students should be taught using the language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. I believe this method helps to improve retention. To aid in learning and to make learning more fun, I like having students play grammar games in addition to learning via the whiteboard and worksheets. I have seen tremendous progress in ESL students' understanding and learning of grammar and punctuation using these methods.

Grammar

I have been tutoring Grammar for many years. When I entered college, my English and Grammar skills were so high, I was able to skip the two required English classes and still obtain the 6 credits for them. I believe most Grammar problems stem from a "hole" in a student's education. Therefore, I use a variety of methods to find and fill those "holes".

Elementary Education

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 8 years of experience helping students from Kindergarten through 8th grade in Math, Reading, English, Grammar and the Microsoft Office Suite. In addition, I have 7 years of experience teaching sign language to Kindergartners - 2nd grade, and 3rd - 6th grade. This experience provided me with various methods of teaching that has enabled me to keep the attention of children from all ages. I believe that when a person struggles with a subject, it is a direct result of a "hole" in their learning. Holes can be developed from missing school days or from a teacher who doesn't explain a concept in a way that reaches the student. My job, as their tutor, is to find whatever "holes" exist in the student's learning and "fill" them with knowledge.

Some of the books I have read with my students are: Wuthering Heights, The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Handmaid's Tale. I graduated with honors in all of my graduate classes. When I tutor literature, I read whatever my student is reading, keeping up with him, or her, to allow us to discuss the item with a more critical eye.

Shannon puts in the extra effort to ensure student success

Shannon ensures attention is paid to detail. She explains in a manner that the student understands the concepts. And, is patient to help the student really master the material.

Nazeela, 40 lessons with Shannon

Went the Extra Mile

Shannon went the extra mile to help prepare my daughter for her ACT. She works very well with her and assessed her needs and spent time helping her with her approach to the test. We recommend Shannon.

Couldn't have done it without her

Advanced finance was probably the hardest course I have ever taken. It was hard enough where others literally dropped the class. As intimidating as this course was, I could not have completed it without Shannon. She really knows her stuff and knows finance so well she can explain concepts in several different ways to help you understand. She was always there for me whether it was online or meeting in person. She was understanding when to I had to change or reschedule sessions. If you want to learn and understand finance from someone who can teach very well, you should consider Shannon.
