About Shellie

I worked for 8 years as a floating teacher for Hamilton Southeastern Schools K-12. Each day was a different classroom and a different grade which gave me such a variety of subject matter to teach. I have taught everything from Math to English to Theater. The last 6 years were focused mainly in grades 5-12. Once I stopped teaching I missed making a difference in a student's life and began to tutor.

Working one on one with a student can be even more impacting than in a group setting. I believe that when a student succeeds, whether it's a feeling of understanding a concept or through a good grade, it will make a big difference in how they function in their daily life. My goal is not only to create success academically but to create emotional success as well through a positive learning environment. I make the tutoring session fun so their minds are open to learning.

Math is something that I have always enjoyed. I love to work with numbers. I have worked with high school students with online summer algebra classes as well as tutored students in regular math. I like to help students figure out problems and show them how to get the correct answer through different avenues. I am currently tutoring several students in Algebra and a variety of other subjects.

I have been self-employed for 27 years. I am in charge of sales, marketing, recruiting, and finances. I am in charge of every aspect of my business. I have a BS degree from Purdue University in Business Management. I also have an AAS degree from Purdue University in Mental Health Technology.

I was a floating teacher for 8 years. The first 1 1/2 years were focused on grades K-4 classrooms. The rest of the years 70% were focused on 5th and 6th grade classrooms. I taught a different subject each day in a different classroom. I have a wide variety of knowledge in each subject area.

I look forward to working with your student in whichever subject you need help in. I am available for tutoring daily except for Sunday and Wednesday. Please contact me so we can set up a time that works for both of us.

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.

Business

I have a BS degree in Business Management from Purdue University and I have been self-employed for 27 years. I am in charge of sales, marketing, finances and recruiting.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a floating teacher for 8 years and 6 of those years I worked closely with 5th and 6th grade students 70% of the time. I have the knowledge in the upper level subject area as well as the elementary level curriculum. My first year and a half of teaching I worked with K-4.

Special Needs

I have an AAS in Mental Health Technology from Purdue University. I worked 2 summers at a Muscular Dystrophy camp and did an internship at the State Hospital in Fort Wayne, IN. I worked with the Special Olympics program and many other special needs kids and adults. I worked in FAP classrooms and Life skills classrooms as a floating teacher as well.

Study Skills

I was a floating teacher for 8 years and the last 45 minutes of the day we had quiet study time. I would work with the students one on one to help them organize their materials to take home and also show them how to study their current material when they didn't have homework. I helped show memorization skills for testing and flash cards for learning vocabulary words etc.
