About Shellie

I am an experienced communications executive, former teacher and adjunct college professor. My talent is making complex concepts clear and simple.

I am available to tutor in all aspects of English language and written communication: research skills, grammar and syntax; literature comprehension; writing and paper preparation.

My Philosophy: To balance the student's short-term interest in a good grade with the essential long-term need for improving overall writing and critical thinking skills.

A student should never become dependent on tutoring. I strongly believe the tutor’s job is to encourage students to think for themselves and for each student to become confident in his or her own, improving skills.

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.

Business

I have 35 years in Corporate Officer positions reporting to CEO, including 25 years of running my own Investor Relations consulting firm.

I am familiar with guiding executives and operational employees through the process of understanding what makes companies compelling to outside interests (including investors, media and communities) as well as communicating business objectives to all employees and stakeholders to improve corporate performance.

Career Development

In the course of heading Communications departments for two Fortune 500 companies, and then 25 years of running my own Investor Relations consulting firm, I have mentored and successfully developed many younger employees into excellent executives and professionals.

I am familiar with guiding executives and operational employees through the process of understanding what makes companies compelling to outside interests (including investors, media and communities) as well as how to successfully communicate business objectives to all employees and stakeholders to improve corporate performance.

Public Speaking

As an investor relations professional, I have coached myriad young and more experienced professionals to present their information in as compelling a mode as possible. All media skills are included: written, spoken, video, internet and social.

These skills have included everything from the 'story' itself to demeanor, dress, ability to answer and/or deflect questions and supporting materials (including Power Point presentations).

In addition, I have trained many at all levels for preparation for 'crisis' communications - both before the fact and during the specific 'crisis.'
