About Shelly

Hello! My name is Shelly and I have a total of 9 years of college education (2 years of early childhood in a community college, 3 years of elementary studies in a private institution, and 4 years at a university where I earned my teaching license in special education). I am currently substitute teaching (K-12) and have been for 10 years. My teaching license expired and I have been unable to find a teaching job. It is my hope that I can still work with and help children succeed. To see children excel and "get it" is very fulfilling to me. I, personally, had a few struggles throughout my years of college so I know what it can be like to have a hard time, to be struggling, and to feel hopeless. To have children feel like they are not failing and able to make it through makes me feel like I am serving a purpose in the world.

The methods of tutoring I use is to first begin with an assessment to see where the child is, inform instruction from there, and create short-term goals. My philosophy around teaching is to make it fun and I feel that making it fun is an important aspect because after a child is in school all day long, the last thing they are going to want is to be tutored. I was taught at Cleveland State University to create games as a tool for learning. I tutored several elementary students at CSU as part of an assessment and curriculum course I took there. I would tutor them twice per week in 2 hour intervals. To see the students learn and reach their goal(s) and feel a sense of success made me feel like there was nothing better in life! I have been described as a fun-loving, outgoing, and enthusiastic person. I try to make activities fun by making them hands-on and tailoring to the individual needs of each child. I have worked with children with special needs for years and my teaching license was actually in the area of mild to moderate special education. I also created elementary activities in math, science, art, music, reading, and social studies.
