About Shena

As a classroom teacher, I introduce a lot of hands-on activities to my students. I truly believe that students can have fun while they are learning mathematics! I use online resources as well. I constantly search for sites that are interactive and engaging for students. I have taught Math 7 and 8, Pre-Algebra and/or Algebra I for the last 18 years. I have also taught English 6, Social Studies, and Civics in the Middle School setting.

I have had the pleasure of teaching and tutoring Consumer Math, Algebra II, Geometry, and College Calculus, College English and College Writing.

I was an instructor for a Summer School Community Reading Camp and Math Lab. I have also been a Homebound Instructor.

My tutoring has also been expanded to evening sessions for a community church for 2nd – 8th grades in all subject areas.

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.
