About Shelby

I am a Mississippi Department of Education certified teacher in the subjects of English and History. I majored in both while I attended the University of Mississippi. I graduated Cum Laude with a Liberal Arts Degree in 2013. I have completed the TMI1 portion to be certified to teach through the Teach Mississippi Institute. I have decided to tutor while I wait for a position to open in English or History in the Middle-High schools around my area. I have successfully taken exams in ACT, PRAXIS CORE, and PRAXIS in Secondary Education Social Studies. I have a wide range of knowledge in scholarly subjects. I specialize in English Literature, European History, and Biology. I took classes in History From the beginning of the Mesopotamian era to current affairs in the United States. I took various classes in English that ranged from Shakespeare to Faulkner and beyond. I have shadowed a teacher for field experience as part of the Teach Mississippi Institute program for over 200 hours instead of the required 60 hours.

I prefer to meet with the student and take a look at their textbook and syllabus to see what they are expected to learn that year. This helps both myself and the student streamline the lesson plans and better explain the topics. Handouts to aid in studying will be provided at each lesson with outlines on the main topics of study. I do not mind answering questions the students may have over e-mail from time to time.

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.

Social Studies

I have passed the PRAXIS II in Social Studies and am certified to teach the subject as a teacher. I majored in history in college. I also completed my field experience as a teacher under an American History teacher at Northpoint. I studied to be a history teacher through the Teach Mississippi Institute.
