About Shanell

Hi,

I am Shanell and I'd like to extend a warm welcome.

I graduated from Plattsburgh State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre and Journalism and a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications-Broadcast Journalism. I specialize in reading, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, public speaking, acting, communicating, cooking, singing and that's to name a few!

I have dealt with people from all walks of life and I pry myself on making a positive impact on everyone I meet. I've worked in the customer service field for more than five years, and it's an absolute joy meeting, helping and working with new people. This however, is my first professional tutoring experience, though I have tutored in the past and I welcome you, as well as the opportunity.

As a high school student, I've worked with attorneys for my involvement in Moot Court competitions and the Lincoln Douglas Debates, and my passion for public speaking continued on well into college. I've performed in plays, written plays, worked as a copy editor for my college's newspaper; editor-in-chief of the yearbook; disc jockey (DJ); news director of the college's radio station; camera operator for the television station; floor director and I've performed with the college's chorale and gospel choirs for a combined four years. I've also interned at MTV and PBS, and throughout the duration I've had the opportunity of meeting singers, actors and politicians, as well as learning the art of discretion.

My tutoring method is simple: finding out where your child is lacking and then using the proper methods to help combat the problem. I believe that everyone learns at their own pace and what works for one student may not work for all. Students sometime need someone who is intuitive and can spot his or her problem, and creative enough to be able to use objects and real life experiences to help the individual understand the material as is.

I am that person who goes above and beyond, using precise communicative skills to help individuals not only to understand the work, but also to believe in him or herself in the process. I treat each person equally. I believe that with an extra boost of confidence and a little extra time, everyone starts to see and believe in their potential. Give me the opportunity to give you proven results of your child's abilities and cognitive strength!

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best wishes.

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.

Cooking

In high school, part of my studies included home economics and cooking was a big part of the class. Apart from that, I grew up in a household where both my parents cooked as well as my extended family, and I was given the opportunity to put my skills to the test. As an adult, I live alone and I am solely responsible for preparing my meals. I do however, love making Halal and Caribbean foods; my boyfriend and family loves it! I'm a great teacher too!

Public Speaking

Public speaking was part of my curriculum as a student; I've taken both public speaking and professional business speaking classes. I received degrees in theatre and broadcasting, which both required speaking in front of an audience, and performing in front an audience as well as on camera. I've performed poetry as a teenager in front of an audience, so throughout my life I've been performing and speaking in public. I know the art of overcoming shyness.

Theater

I've studied theatre for four years. I have worked both on and behind the stage and I can tell you the ins and the outs of not only acting, but also putting a show together. I am also a playwright and though I am not currently in the business, I can help you to become the actor you were meant to become.
