About Shana

I am a dedicated, enthusiastic First Grade teacher in the Chicago Public School system. I hold a valid Illinois Elementary Teaching Certificate as well as a Masters in Reading Instruction.

My specialty is in the area of reading and I am skilled in empowering struggling readers to overcome challenges and fears associated with and pertaining to beginning readers. As a regular classroom teacher, I am also skilled in the areas of Math, Science, Social Sciences, and Writing. I have access to all of my classroom materials and intervention curricula.

I also care deeply and am skilled in the act of engaging children in a positive learning experience. I strive to help students both associate learning with positivity and build their academic self-confidence.

I have taught Elementary Math for eight years in both Kindergarten and First Grade. Additionally, I have extensive knowledge in the Common Core Math Standards and access to many materials across all grade levels.

I have a Masters degree in Reading Instruction and have specialized in early literacy skills for eight years. I am well versed in the Common Core ELA Standards and have access to materials across all grade levels including Leveled texts and novels.

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.

Reading
