About Shelby

Hello, my name is Shelby, and I am a professional freelance writer and tutor living in Durham, North Carolina. I have experience working with high school and college-level students in creative writing, test preparation and reading comprehension. I have also worked with international students and can help with general language skills including tutoring in French.

I majored in creative writing at Seattle Pacific University with a minor in French, and I studied literature at the University of Fribourg in Switzerland. Writing is something that I am very passionate about and a craft that I love to share with others. Even if you are not in school, but have a writing project that you have been meaning to get to, let me help you make it happen.

My approach to tutoring is to make sure the student feels comfortable and at ease so that their personal strengths are emphasized while their limitations are expanded.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Study Skills

I have extensive experience teaching study skills through private tutoring, and also as a professional tutor at a community college where I worked primarily with international students on reading, writing, test preparation and conversation skills.
