About Shane

Greetings! I am glad that you are searching to have your son or daughter grow in their academic comprehension! You have come to the right place. I am a current English Language Teacher (ESOL) in Washington County, and have experience as a Math and Reading Interventionist within the Howard County Public School System. I previously taught fourth grade in Washington County as well. My wife and I spent two years abroad, teaching English in China as well.

My wife is a current Spanish teacher within our local county, so teaching is in our blood. We are both young, and with that, bring a lot of energy and creativity to our job. I enjoy assisting students in getting past the initial frustrations of learning, and assist the parents in bridging the school to home learning environment.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am a certified elementary teacher in the state of Maryland. I have taught in Maryland for 3 1/2 years. Consequently, I have had several students with ADD/ADHD, as well as my wife, who is a middle school teacher.
As a teacher, we are responsible for bringing our students to attention and evaluating those who demonstrate possible symptoms for this condition. We, of course, do not diagnose, but can refer students to their parents to get tested.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher in the state of Maryland, with a standard Professional 1 certificate. It is active and valid until Dec, 2015.

IELTS

I taught English overseas for two years (2008 - 2010) at Hunan Business College, Changsha, China. I taught within the international college, where my primary purpose was to prepare Chinese college students for the IELTS, and future overseas studies. I taught in the classroom, and as a personal tutor for the BEC exam as well. I utilized a variety of practices and methods. I am currently an ESOL/ELL teacher as well, where I teach English to foreign language students.

Religion

I am the current Missions Director at my local church.
My wife and I served overseas in China for two years, working with numerous churches there.

Prior to this, I successfully completed a Master's level course: Perspectives on the World Christian Movement--by Fuller Theological Seminary.

I have taken a couple of ministry classes through our school of ministry class at our church as well.

With my role as Missions Director and time overseas, I am frequently in contact with people serving in areas all over the world. This has brought both an appreciation and awareness of many religions and their cultures.

Track & Field

I completed four years of track and field in high school, 1996-2001, went to the Maryland State Finals for three years, attended Blue Ridge running near James Madison University; one of the best running camps in the U.S.

I am a current active runner, competing in 5k's, and 10k's.

Voice (Music)

I have an undergraduate degree in vocal/general music education from Towson University (May 2007). I taught music in Baltimore County for one year. I have performed at various venues, including the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Orioles Stadium, and Weinberg center. I still teach in the public school system, but in a different subject.
