I am an education attorney and certified English teacher with 18 years of test prep tutoring experience. After graduating from Duke University, I began my career as an award-winning high school American Literature teacher in Augusta, Georgia before attending law school to study juvenile and trial advocacy at University of Maryland Carey School of Law. I am a certified Best Interest Attorney for children and have five years of experience as an education attorney for a large public school system. I have successfully represented public school professionals in trial and appellate matters, and provided system-wide trainings on discrimination and harassment, abuse reporting, and general liability issues.

I lecture at Georgetown University's Continuing Education Program, and am a regular guest on the Lynn Johnson Motivational Radio Show, where I serve as the show’s Legal Education Correspondent.

My unique background in education and law helped me develop an advanced, strategic approach to test preparation and college and career readiness, which I have used for the past 15 years to help over 500 students overcome content and stress-based challenges in order to gain acceptance into college, law school and grad school.

If you are a repeat test taker, struggle with test anxiety, or have learning challenges or difficulties preventing you from testing at your maximum potential, I want to work with you!

Praxis help

Shana is helping me a strategy to pass the writing part of the praxis, and she is helping me conquer test anxiety. When I left my first appointment, I felt so excited that I could cry!

Katherine, 1 lesson with Shana

Excellent advice, even for the last minute

Shana was very helpful for me, even though I was only able to use her services for about two weeks. We discussed getting into the right mindset and dealing with test day anxiety before we even discussed the test. When we reached the actual material, she provided a useful new perspective that helped me see the questions in a new light and my score ultimately jumped 5 points. You really can't ask for much more.

Tutor responded:

Thanks, Daniel! 2.5 point improvement per session is a fantastic result. So happy I could help you unlock that final score boost!

Very knowledgeable teacher!!!

Shana is a great tutor! Her approach to help me improve is very systematic and well thought. She will figure out your weakness and gave you advices/instructions about how to overcome the weakness. She is also very supportive and has positive thinking. It is very important to have a tutor who truly believes in your potential success.
