About Shane

Hello. My name is Shane. I have a higher degree in education (teaching and learning) and have been working as an international teacher overseas for the past near decade. I am a certified and experienced secondary teacher with subject area coverages spanning all of the social sciences and humanities (history, geography, civics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, etc.), ESOL, English, Literature, Drama, and Speech. As a teacher, I have specialized in fostering skills in critical thinking, research, reflection, and communication.

I have returned home to help out at a family farm in rural Middle Tennessee for the remainder of the year and am looking to supplement my living income. I have extensive experience in one-on-one tutoring covering a variety of needs from ESOL to early level learning to specialized test preparation to advanced gifted/talented.

I'm looking forward to helping out with whatever academic needs require extra attention and which fall within my realms of experience, knowledge, and expertise.
