About Shannon

I have been a teacher and tutor for many years. I have certifications in elementary and secondary education. I currently tutor elementary math, middle school math, Algebra I, Algebra II , and Geometry. I also tutor in the areas of grammar, reading, and writing. In the last few years, I have expanded tutoring to college level courses such as Developmental Math, College Algebra, Statistics, and College English. I do tutor students to prep them for the math portions of the ACT, SAT, and TSI. I work with public, private, and home school students.

I love to help individuals learn and succeed in the subject(s) that they struggle with. There is nothing more gratifying to me than to see a student that I have been tutoring to improve their grade averages in school or pass an important test.

Math is my favorite subject of all. I love to teach individuals how to understand mathematical concepts and then see them being successful in their classes.

Reading is another area that I tutor students in, and I have successfully worked with students with dyslexia.

I really believe every student is an unique individual who needs to be taught as an individual. I really am compassionate about students learning and succeeding.

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.

Knowledgeable and very welcoming — Yesterday I brought my two children into Mrs. Shannon’s office for tutoring. I drop them off and to my surprise upon returning they were still in learning mood. It was like they weren't ready to leave. My daughter in the 10th grade stated to me “Wow Mom I learned so much”.
