About Shianna

Hey! My name is Shianna and I am a recent graduate of the University of Central Missouri. I am super excited about receiving my Master of Arts in Teaching Secondary English (9-12), and am equally excited about starting my teaching career. My most current teaching experience was at a high school, where I taught English I and English II as a student-teacher. Aside from student teaching, I also worked in the classroom with juvenile offenders, age 15-18, who were detained by the Department of Social Services. I have experience with younger students through my work at LaPetite Academy Pre-School, where I taught ages 2-10 and Freedom Schools of Kansas City, where I assisted in teaching Kindergarten and 1st Grade. Over the years, I have taken approaches and used techniques that have both worked exceptionally well and that have not been as successful as I anticipated. I celebrate the achievements my students make as my own and reject being discouraged by inevitable short comings. I simply pick my students up, put them back on the horse, and trot on.

Although my area of expertise is high school, I am also qualified to help younger students who are struggling with reading, handwriting, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation. For my high school students, I am able to help with comprehending literature, vocabulary, writing, research, proofreading, and other various essential standards, as set forth by district curriculum.

Most people think that a great tutor needs to be well immersed in their discipline and have a great grasp on content knowledge in their respective subject, right? While that is extremely important, I don't think that's what particularly makes me a great tutor. Although I am very comfortable with English content, the best skill I possess is the ability to use my resources. People often overlook the sources they are surrounded by. I use the knowledge I have and the resources I am provided with to convey information to my students to help them understand more clearly. There is always a way to connect knowledge you need to retain, to something you have previously retained. The approach I take to make English fun, innovative, and engaging is what sets me apart from other teachers and tutors!

Now that you know a bit about me, I look forward to hearing from you! Feel free to e-mail me at any time. I will respond within 24 hours at least, always.
