Unlike most other math teachers, I was not good in math until Algebra One in ninth grade. I had an understanding, patient, and tremendously good teacher and since then, well... the world of math has been mine! Intending to teach for one year between engineering jobs, fourteen years later, I'm still teaching and my students experience a world of investigation and discovery. I am a licensed 6-12 mathematics teacher in Virginia with twelve years teaching Algebra One, eight years teaching...
Unlike most other math teachers, I was not good in math until Algebra One in ninth grade. I had an understanding, patient, and tremendously good teacher and since then, well... the world of math has been mine! Intending to teach for one year between engineering jobs, fourteen years later, I'm still teaching and my students experience a world of investigation and discovery. I am a licensed 6-12 mathematics teacher in Virginia with twelve years teaching Algebra One, eight years teaching Geometry Honors, two years teaching Algebra Two, and four years teaching Core Math 8. As a tutor, I've tutored everything from Core Math 6 to AP Statistics.
My forte has always been logistics and this includes students as well. I can work with a student for just a short amount of time and find where the holes are in their knowledge and find easy ways to repairs those holes and start building a wonderful mathematical future! I know you can do it! When I teach math, I want the student to have a mastery of the content as well as the methods to finding solutions. Contact me at your earliest convenience and we can set up a schedule to clear the fog and renew your confidence. Afternoons and evenings are best as I'm flexible and accommodating and ready to improve your mathematical life!
Amazing, knowledgeable, joyful tutor

Very energetic, patient, and easygoing tutor!
Shannon tutored my daughter who is in a high school IB program with Algebra 2 Trigonometry. Her energy, patience, and love of Math was obvious with our 1st session. My daughter is looking forward to future sessions with Shannon!JENNIFER, 16 lessons with Shannon
Encouraging and fun
Shannon understands my daughter well, and tailors her teaching towards each person. She makes whatever she's teaching fun, and there is laughing and a lot of progress in understanding.Leanne, 23 lessons with Shannon
Well versed in material
My son, A sixth grader in pre algebra, stated that Shannon was able to impart the material in a way that made he feel at ease. She has a great sense of humor and can really suss out the area of need. We were both quite impressed with Shannon and will continue to use her to help him stay on top of his academic "game".Cammy, 14 lessons with Shannon

Shannon helped see the errors I was making and helped me resolve them. She helped me prep for a final that I passed.Brandi, 3 lessons with Shannon
Top tier math tutor!
My daughter was so frustrated and wanted to quit Algebra II. Only one hour with Shannon and she wanted to do math problems all weekend. My daughter told me, "This is now fun daddy". Thank you Shannon for making math fun again for my daughter. We will be using Shannon not only for math but for SAT review as well.Brian, 9 lessons with Shannon
All forms of math, from algebra to statistics. She is very knowledgeable and does her job well; with humor and respect. Would recommend her if anyone would ever ask with no hesitation.Randy, 4 lessons with Shannon
Helpful and Reliable
She takes her time to go through the problems, that I am having in math and gives me the tools to strengthen the weaknesses. In addition, she goes step by step and doesn't get frustrated when I'm not clear on how to solve the problems.Denah , 10 lessons with Shannon
My granddaughter has had quite a few lessons with Shannon, and i've already seen a change in her understanding and grade. I would definitely recommend her. She explains things in a different, simpler way.Juanita, 18 lessons with Shannon
