I have worked in special education for over 13 years and absolutely love it. I believe all students can be successfully no matter their diagnosis. I believe in ability over disability and want to work and make students feel that they are still capable of achieving any goal they set forth to accomplish.

Special Needs

I have 15+ years’ experience teaching and tutoring at risk youth, special education students, and adult learners in the education setting and curriculum. As a special education teacher, I recognize and respect the uniqueness of each Learner. My goal is to foster confidence and achieve student success! I celebrate diversity and strive to instill integrity, compassion and confidence in each learner. I give each learner support and encouragement to become his or her own unique self and establish a love of learning. I adapt my tutoring approach to a variety of learning styles and make it fun!

Seen improvements within 3-months

Shannon has helped my son show noticeable improvements in just 3 months. She’s patient with him and makes learning fun so he looks forward to her lessons. She has also provided useful feedback on his challenges and progress and reviewed his assessments from school to better tailor her tutoring.

Thank you so much!

Listened to concerns, assessed needs and implementing a plan

Shannon was professional from jump and provided details on her background which let me know we were in the right hands. She asked many questions to better work towards our goal of ensuring my child was comfortable andmore confident in certain areas. Although we are going into our 4th lesson, I've also added her for another area.

Very professional and knowledgeable

She asked all the right questions at the first session, she had a very warm and calm demeanor and made us feel comfortable to explain our twins learning challenges openly.
