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 are in bold.

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 received training from a licensed psychologist over a two year period to be able to work with my younger son who is ADHD. Throughout my teaching career, I have had numerous students who were ADD/ADHD, and I have had great success in teaching these students. I have learned how to teach these students how to study for short periods of time and then take a short break.

Algebra 1

I am a secondary certified teacher in math. I have taught for many years in the field of mathematics from the elementary levels through College Algebra. I have an unique perspective in mathematics since I work from the beginnings of teaching math through College Algebra. I love math and really enjoy sharing my knowledge and enjoyment of doing math with others.

Homeschool

Since 1999, I have been assisting families in homeschooling their children. I am a secondary and elementary certified teacher with many years of experience in teaching and tutoring students in a wide array of subjects from Kindergarten through the twelfth grade. I also tutor at the college level which gives me a depth to my assistance at the other grade levels since I know what knowledge and skills are needed to be successful in college. Many of the students that I worked with over the years have become very successful college students at not only junior colleges but at major universities.

Amazing, patient, and knows the content.

Shannon was amazing. She is patient, but most importantly she knows and understands the content. She was able to quickly identify where Isaiah was going wrong with his math problems and correct the problem. She was able to use a systematic approach to helping him learn. He left more confident about solving his equations and was less frustrated. In addition, her environment was very conducive to le
