About Shannon

During the day I work in a law firm in Washington, DC. I spend the majority of my day dealing with legal documents, as well as letters and other non-legal written documents. I have my undergraduate degree in English with a concentration in literature. Although my concentration was in literature, I spent a lot of time writing as well. I'm experienced in both high school level and college level writing (research papers, book reports, analysis, etc.).

I also have an MBA from Mount St. Mary's University. I'm confident that my graduate school experience will help in writing business-type papers, for example, financial analysis for an economics class and other technical types of papers.

I believe in working one-on-one with students to help them understand what they are learning in school. I believe that homework is necessary to reinforce and solidify what they are learning so I often give extra homework. Often students just need someone to reinforce what they are learning or to explain it in a different way. Every student has different strengths and weaknesses and each must be taught as an individual. Part of my experience tutoring has been one on one with my three children, I believe I'm able to translate my skills into teaching and helping other students.

In so many cases, too many students fall behind in skills that they need to build on. By finding and correcting problems early, students not only get the help they need, but hopefully gain the confidence to push themselves beyond what limits they thought they may have had.

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.

As an English major, I'm able to help with reading, writing and grammar. I'm also able to help with the basics when just learning how to read the English language.
