About Shirley

Hello, I am Shirley and I am dedicated to help you! I have over seven years' experience teaching and tutoring English, ESL, Math, and other subjects, to students at various skill levels. I have a bachelor's in English Literature from the University of Cincinnati. Currently, I am working on my master's in Sustainable Design online at Philadelphia University.

My philosophy is that learning occurs every day! There are many ways to learn a new skill or topic. I will help you develop strategies, based on your learning goals, challenges, interests, and learning style. I often use examples of how your school studies relate to "the real world"--learning can be fun, too! Library and online study aids are very beneficial, so I often work with my students at the Main Branch, or community libraries.

For students interested in online tutoring, we can also discuss that option.

I look forward to working with 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.

Elementary Math

I have a Bachelors in English Literature from the University of Cincinnati. I am working on a Masters Degree, so English and Language Arts are essential in my research. My teaching and tutoring experience also includes Math and other topics. I feel that Language Arts and Math skills go hand-in-hand, in everyday living. Reading skills help with comprehending and solving Math word problems. I find ways to apply student interests, in their studies, to hopefully make learning more enjoyable.

I find ways to apply student interests, in their studies, to hopefully make learning more enjoyable. I discuss and address a student’s immediate needs and work with my students’ strengths and learning styles. We work together to help build confidence and improve skills in spelling, vocabulary, and reading comprehension.

Reading

I have a Bachelors in English Literature from the University of Cincinnati. I am working on a Masters Degree, so reading is essential to my research. I help students by encouraging them to read topics they would enjoy, as well as required school work, plus other practical applications for reading. Sharpening reading skills helps with math problems, history, social, studies, fine arts, understanding applications and contracts--the list is endless.

Study Skills

I have a Bachelors degree in English Literature, from the University of Cincinnati. I have over 7 years tutoring and teaching students. Study skills and research skills coaching are often primary reasons that I am assisting students. When I work with students, I do more than help to solve a problem. I share tips and strategies to study and research, even the elementary grades! I believe that when a student asks, "Why “or "Why not", then curiosity and inquiry about topics are strengths. If a student works well learning a topic using lists, pictures, mind-maps, music, repetition, and taking frequent breaks--great! I encourage dividing work into mini-tasks, on their studies "to-do" list. We work together on organizational skills ideas, too.
