About Shelley

Hello!

I'm Shelley, a certified teacher who specializes in reading and math tutoring for Kindergarten through 6th grade. I currently teach first grade in Jefferson Parish. I have a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education, with a special interest in early childhood/elementary reading and literacy. At the end of this school year, my 83% of my students were at or above grade level in reading; 70% of my students were at or above grade level in math.

I get to know each student with whom I work; this includes not only their academic strengths and weaknesses but also their personal interests, whether it be Minecraft, Monster High, or popular music. After initially meeting you and your child and conducting an informal assessment, I'll develop a tutoring plan. I'll share the plan with you and ask for feedback. Then, let the success begin!

I view parents as partners, and your feedback is always welcomed and appreciated.
Contact me today to schedule an initial session.

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.

Common Core

I work extensively with the Common Core State Standards, writing and teaching lessons aligned to both the English Language Arts and Math standards. I also create weekly subject assessments aligned to the CCSS.

General Music

I hold a Bachelor of Music degree and have taught general music classes at the early childhood and elementary school level. I have also developed curriculum for the general music classroom.

Handwriting

As part of my classroom curriculum, I teach handwriting using the "Handwriting Without Tears" method. I observe and work with students, ensuring they are using a proper pencil grip and writing without tension or pain in their hand.

Phonics

I have done specialized study in early literacy and language development. This included working with toddlers to school-age children and observing and studying their phonemic and phonological awareness skills.
