About Shirley

With a very extensive background in student achievement (MS in Education: Curriculum and Instruction), coupled with a proficient understanding of how students learn, and how they relate to teaching and learning as presented to them based on their individual learning styles, affords me the opportunity to monitor their progress with each new idea/strategy to assist them in identifying and applying strategies that improve their comprehension and performance.

In addition to the above information, I have a combination of approximately 30 years of teaching experience, at the elementary, secondary, junior, senior college, and grad school levels. My goal is to assist students in the learning process by way of meaningful strategies that are proven to enhance academic achievement. My experience has been a part of CPS of Chicago, City Colleges of Chicago, Robert Morris College, DeVry University, and Northeastern Illinois University. Other courses taught are Reading/Language, Social Studies, Business Law, Business Education, Business Writing, English 1-8(Secondary level), English (Writing I and II) college level, Reading comprehension 101, ABE/ESL, English 125 - Writing and Composition. I am now retired and thought I would continue my interests by tutoring because teaching and learning are parts of my life that will always exist.

I am highly qualified to teach elementary ed with a very successful record for over 26 years at CPS. I am also highly qualified to teach high school English, economics, and history NCLB HQ.
