I am a qualified professional with 10+ years working in public schools in urban, suburban, and rural environments. My family spent a great deal of my childhood in Europe and the international education I received helped me become an avid achiever. After graduating from a military base high school, I attended college in Louisiana and relocated to New Jersey to complete three degrees in Psychology, English, and Social Work while working full-time as an employee with the New Jersey Department of Education. Currently, I love working to develop learning confidence through M.A.P.S.(METHODS ATTITUDES POSSIBILITIES SOLUTIONS(TM)} a special curriculum designed to integrate social intelligence and exemplify the importance of unique learning styles. My personal philosophy is that many can teach but we have to use multiple means of instruction, positive support, and assessment to impact the future of education. So, "if you think you can't, you won't...if the right person tells you that you can...you will!

My daughter is always looking forward to her tutoring every week. She has my daughter wanting and excited to learn. Every penny is well worth it. Ms. T is not your average tutor!!Al-Nisa, 7 lessons with Shelley
I was sold on Ms. T's credentials and reviews, needed my daughter to "buy in" to the idea of being tutored. Ms. T was AWESOME with my daughter... by the end of the session my daughter was RAVING about her! The tips she shared with my daughter really helped her with studying and preparing for two big tests coming up! We both can't wait for the next session!Jeanine, 1 lesson with Shelley

Shelley met my 19 year old son at the college campus library and obtained a private room for them to work on their first assignment. She kept him motivated to come up with ideas to write about and seemed to make a connection on their first meeting. I look forward to her working weekly with him in order to keep him on schedule with his written assignments which seem to bog him down when he attempts to do them on his own. I am very appreciative of making the connection and hope to continue in order to offer my son a successful start to college. Thanks Shelley.Jill, 13 lessons with Shelley
