About Shana

I have been teaching for 12 years. I spent several years tutoring students as part of Title I. I have also substituted in all of the elementary grades so I am familiar with the curriculum across all of elementary school. I spent almost seven years living abroad where I taught English to elementary school students as well as adults. I enjoy teaching and tutoring because of the reward of "I get it!" Nothing beats helping a student understand material that they were struggling with.

I have two children of my own whom I have been helping with homework so I have learned how to really help and how to figure out what help is needed even if the student can't articulate it himself.

I spent almost seven years abroad teaching English as a foreign language to children and adults. The methods I learned there will help strengthen spoken and written English for students in the US.

I am a trained teacher so I know the standards for all of the grades. I know the progression of skills so I can work from the ground up to build the skills needed to succeed in the current grade.

As a teacher I know the curriculum for the elementary grades. I have taught multiple grades and have helped students learn how to study.

I have taught lower elementary grades as well as English as a foreign language where I taught phonics.

I look forward to working with your elementary school child to help them succeed this year.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BA in elementary education and have substituted in all of the grade levels. I am currently awaiting official state certification as I moved and my original certification lapsed. I prefer to find the underlying problem that the student is struggling with and not just focusing on an isolated skill.

Phonics

Having taught English to new English language learners, I have worked with using a phonetic approach to spelling and learning new words. I have also taught my own children English through phonics. As an elementary school teacher, I have worked with my students on phonics and phonetic spelling.

Study Skills

As a teacher I have given tests and assignments to students. I have heard from them what the problems are and have helped create study materials for their specific learning style. I have had in-services talking about different study strategies and have used them myself with much success.
