About Shane

Teaching is my life! I graduated from Emporia State University (KS) with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in elementary education. I taught 2nd grade for seven years, and am currently in my fourth year of teaching 6th grade. During this time, I taught all content areas.

I understand that learning can be a challenge, but I also know that challenges can be overcome. While in elementary school, I needed a tutor to assist me with reading comprehension. I became "lost in the shuffle" at my school, but with one-on-one assistance with my tutor, I was able to not only succeed, but thrive! I took the knowledge I gained from my tutor and applied it to my daily studies at school. My goal is to help students find the same success I found.

How will I help my students be successful? I believe communication is key. Communication with students, parents, and teachers is necessary to gain a true understanding of problems, solutions, and goals for every party involved in the tutoring process. Also, being a certified teacher still in the classroom, I have access to multiple teaching aids to assist my students in every way possible. In addition, tailoring lessons to fit the individual needs of each student is of utmost importance. This is the driving force of tutoring and what sets it apart from daily classroom instruction.

I look forward to hearing from you. Remember, success might just be one lesson away. Let's get the ball rolling!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Common Core

I feel I am qualified to tutor in the content area of common core. In the past four years, I have taught all content ares of 6th grade. Reading, writing, math, science, and social studies have all been aligned with the common core standards for the past two years. I have prepared my students for the Kansas state assessments (which are aligned with the common core standards) for each of those years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I feel I am qualified to tutor elementary students. I hold a current Kansas teaching license (grades K-9) valid through Sept. 2016. I have spent the past four years teaching 6th grade.

Handwriting

I feel I am qualified to tutor in the content of handwriting. I taught 2nd grade for seven years. The fine motor skills associated with handwriting are still being developed at that age, so it was necessary for me to engage students with activities to perfect those skills.

Phonics

I feel I am qualified to tutor in the content of phonics. I taught 2nd grade for seven years. Most students at that age are emergent or beginning readers. It was necessary for me to teach students phonics to lead them toward becoming independent readers.

Study Skills

I feel I am qualified to tutor in the content area of study skills. I have spent the past four years teaching 6th grade. At this grade level, I am preparing my students for junior high. With a vast amount of notes for multiple content areas at this grade level and future grades, study skills are just as important to teach as the actual content is for each class.
