About Shana

Hi!

I am an English and Psychology major working on my teaching certification. I have been a mental health aide, TSS, statistics tutor, and substitute teacher. I really enjoy helping students realize their potential and helping them work through problems. I think that students come with many different learning styles and it's important to find creative and constructive ways to teach according to how they learn best. Feel free to ask me a lot of questions - there is no such thing as a dumb question. I look forward to a great tutoring session!

I majored in English and have always loved to read and write. I love dissecting stories and getting lost in a good book. I've had a lot of practice with close reading, symbolism, making connections to society, and critical thinking for story lines.

I have been a substitute teacher for elementary school classes and really enjoyed the environment. I loved the feedback from the children and learning how to best engage their unique skills and abilities to help them learn well.

I used to work as a mental health aide and TSS. I have experience working with children with ADD, ADHD, RAD, Anger/Aggression, OCD, and on the Autism Spectrum. Some of the classrooms I've been a substitute teacher for have been Special Education.

I look forward to hearing from you and encourage you to reach out with any questions!

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.

ADHD

I have worked as a mental health aide for a summer therapeutic camp working with children with ADHD, ADD, on the Autism Spectrum, OCD, Anger/Aggression. and RAD. From there, I worked as a TSS and then went on to substitute teach in Special Education classrooms. I have all my clearances to work as a mental health aide with children with special needs and also work with children in the classroom.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have worked as a mental health aide for a summer therapeutic camp working with children with ADHD, ADD, on the Autism Spectrum, OCD, Anger/Aggression. and RAD. For the majority of the program, I helped to lead classrooms that focused on children on the autism spectrum. We did therapeutic exercises such as using coping skills, yoga to calm and focus, color charts of emotion, big and little reactions, talked about our feelings, and practicing social skills. From there, I worked as a TSS and then went on to substitute teach in Special Education classrooms. I have all my clearances to work as a mental health aide with children with special needs and also work with children in the classroom. I have worked with children that have a hard time with eye contact, stimming, and social skills.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked as a substitute teacher in elementary schools and possess all my clearances. My clearances are up to date for substituting and for working as a mental health aide for a summer therapeutic program with children. I have worked in classrooms in elementary, middle, and special education.

Piano

I took piano from 1st grade until 11th grade when I started to work. I took a theory class in college for music. I love to play the piano and can read notes well. I have experience with recitals and playing in front of people. I have given piano lessons to children in the past.
