About Shannon


Bio

I'm glad you've found me! I am an experienced science teacher/tutor who is offering tutoring to suit your needs.

I have over 25 years of teaching/tutoring science. Primarily I teach all things chemistry at this point in my teaching career (regular, honors, AP, and a semester of Organic Chemistry.) Most of my tutoring students are taking chemistry or working to meet their pre-nursing course requirements (chemistry/bio/anatomy.)

I'm glad you've found me! I am an experienced science teacher/tutor who is offering tutoring to suit your needs.

I have over 25 years of teaching/tutoring science. Primarily I teach all things chemistry at this point in my teaching career (regular, honors, AP, and a semester of Organic Chemistry.) Most of my tutoring students are taking chemistry or working to meet their pre-nursing course requirements (chemistry/bio/anatomy.)

I also teach other sciences periodically (environmental, biology, physical science, and a little physics) at the high school level and I am very capable of helping with lower level sciences (K-8 grade). I am certified to teach chemistry and biology in the state of VA and I have a 100% pass rate for my chemistry SOL, and a pass advance rate of between 25-51% depending on the year- both well above the state average. I encourage my second year students to take the SAT Chemistry exam and they do very well (745+ / 800 ) year after year. I have been on the ACS National HS Exam writing committee for almost 10 years. This means I know about standardized tests and how to prepare for them. (Of course, you need to know your content, but there are other things you need to know, as well.)

I have been tutoring and providing home-bound instructional services for students for years. I would be happy to work with you to meet your needs. This could include working with you one on one, via the internet, etc. I can focus on AP topics, SOL topics, private school - I'll help with what ever you need, and even can help with home-schooled children taking higher level courses. We can work on specific content, strategies to tackle new content on your own, and more.

Lastly, I will provide you with an update at the end of each session so you know what we worked on, suggestions I may have made, etc. I do hope to hear from you soon. I want all students to find success in their science classes and ultimately enjoy them. I am here to help make that happen.

Special Needs

ADHD

ADHD

I have been working with students with varying special needs for almost 20 years, including ADD/ADHD and multiple LD classifications. I fully recognize that education is not a one size fits all endeavor and I have a 'bag of tricks' I pull from (and add to!) on a regular basis as I am faced with students with challenges. I can also make suggestions for ways to 'chunk' material into units that have a natural flow so that students with ADD can still master material asked of them - just in more manageable doses tailored to their attention span.

Test Preparation

Praxis,

Praxis

I have a MS in chem ed, a BS in Biology/Chem and an almost perfect score on the Praxis math test - and high scores on the other Praxis subtests, as well. I have taught and tutored kids/young adults in test prep for SAT and PRAXIS for almost 20 years. In order to receive my own teaching credentials, I had to take and pass several Praxis exams.
Regents,

Regents

I've been a test question writer for over 10 years for the National Chemistry HS exam, had 100% pass rate for my students 10+ years on VA state exams and AP Chemistry. I specialize in helping you show what you know and being ready for your Regents exam. I will help you become familiar with how the test is structured, how the questions are formatted, and help you polish off any rough edges. I help all my students to feel like their exam is their time shine and they can walk in feeling confident and prepared.
SOL,

SOL

I have been teaching "SOL Chemistry" for the last four years at the high school where I work (after teaching in a private school over 12 years). I have a 100% pass rate and a 25-51% pass advance rate - depending on the semester. These results are well above the state average - and I work in a high poverty level school. (Because kids can do great things when you teach them they can!) I have an endorsement in chemistry and a MS in science education with a chemistry focus.

College Freshman Review: Five Stars

To give you a little background, I didn't have the opportunity to learn chemistry during high school until my freshman year in college. Chemistry is such a large topic with a lot of theory and mathematics that makes it hard to learn on your own. This is why I'm grateful for Shannon, as she is patient, enthusiastic, prepared, and a great explainer. If it happens that there is a topic that she isn't too familiar with, she will happily learn about it before class to teach it to you. If there are concept or mathematical problems you have questions on, she will solve them beforehand and guide you through to get the answer. She will also listen to your questions and your confusions. It is a combination of these characteristics and her background in teaching that I believe makes her a wonderful tutor, and I am confident that she will be able to help you or your child as much as she has helped me. Thank you Shannon.

Knowledgeable, patient and helped me understand

Shannon was amazing! Helped me so much in every way! My grades needed to improve dramatically in a short period of time for the end of the quarter and Shannon made this possible!

Leanne, 2 lessons with Shannon

Knowledgeable AP Chemistry teacher

Shannon helped us out in a pinch and our daughter found her explanations for some tough topics in AP Chemistry very helpful! It was nice to have her perspective and experience as a longtime teacher. Thank you, Shannon!

Michelle, 1 lesson with Shannon

Knowledgeable, friendly, and patient.

Shannon did a wonderful job tutoring my ADD student in chemistry. My daughter was so exciting and actually smiling when she finished her sessions because Shannon was able to work with her in a way that she understood. Pretty exciting to see a child who normally hates chemistry feel like they understand it. Highly recommend Shannon!

Nikki, 2 lessons with Shannon

Excellent teacher

Shannon is excellent tutor who is helping my daughter with AP Chem. She is very responsive to all my messages and emails. I highly recommend Shannon as a tutor.

Sree, 4 lessons with Shannon

Knowledgeable Tutor

Shannon was great with my daughter. She was patient and explained concepts over and over where needed. She gave her a practice problem and went over it with her. We would definitely recommend Shannon B.

Karen , 1 lesson with Shannon

Very patient and kind!

Shannon was very kind and patient. She knows much about the subject test and had tips to give on question types and topics. She was very friendly and informative! Highly recommend.

Sherry, 1 lesson with Shannon

Excellent, knowledgeable, and patient tutor.

Shannon is teaching and helping my daughter for SAT Chemistry subject test. She is an excellent teacher. She’s not only very familiar with the test but also absolutely knows how to teach kids to like studying. My daughter had no confidence and no interest in chemistry at all. But only after 2 lessons with Shannon, she already started like Chemistry and becomes confident in the test. Now she’s expecting more lessons from Shannon. We are so blessed to have the chance to know Shannon and wish we could know her earlier! I highly recommend Shannon!
