About Shay

Hello,

It is my goal to help others learn and achieve in their education. I currently work as a tutor for the social sciences department at Greenville Technical College. I a very passionate about education. I'm currently back in college studying for my B.A. in history with certification in secondary education social studies along with my certification to teach English as a second language.

I would love to help you or your child overcome their educational or learning challenges and make learning fun as well. As a parent and a student myself, I have a unique perspective from both sides and can understand the difficulties of today's educational processes and the pressure school can be on a student. It is my sincere goal to motivate students in learning by building a trustful relationship and an ambition to succeed.

I have been certified and trained as a volunteer with the Pickens, Spartanburg, Greenville, and Anderson Counties School Districts.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you in any way I can.

Thank you so much,
Shay
