About Shantell

I am a New Orleans native and I have experience working with students of all ages which includes primary, secondary, and college students. I have engaged with primary and secondary students in nonprofit organizations through numerous after school, summer and Saturday programs in the New Orleans area as an instructor, a coordinator, and site director. Currently, I am employed by a number of nonprofit organizations that focus on education which allows me to work with students of diverse backgrounds and learning levels.

I received my Bachelor of Arts in English from Dillard University and my Master of Arts in English from the University of New Orleans with concentrations in British literature and teaching. My concentrations in my master's program coupled with my professional experiences have equipped me as a well knowledgeable educator. I am knowledgeable about various genres and styles of literature, research methods, essay writing and editing along with reading comprehension skills.

I am available most evenings and every weekend and I look forward to working with you and your student.

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.

Public Speaking

I am qualified to teach or tutor public speaking because it is a major aspect of my job as an instructor at UNO. My job requires me to speak clearly and directly in order to be effective. This real life experience would be what I would use to instruct students about methods to use when they speak publicly.

Study Skills

I graduated undergraduate school at Dillard University with a 3.0 GPA and I currently have a 3.5GPA in graduate school at the University of New Orleans. I have been in college for almost six years and I have achieved these GPA's by managing my time and learning how to study effectively. I will use my personal experience as a professional student to teach my students about study skills.

In addition to personal experiences, as an instructor at the University of New Orleans in their First Year Seminar program I teach my students effective ways to study among other subjects such as time management. As an instructor, my goal is to provide my students with the tools they need to be successful in the classroom.
