Haley Shea

I am a Communications (Film & Media) honor student at the University of North Georgia, where I work as an editor in the college writing center. My tutoring career began in grade school, where I frequently helped my peers understand the curriculum during my classes, and this inspired me to volunteer at schools and local libraries as a reading and writing tutor. The satisfaction that comes from showing students the way and seeing the moment that the subject "clicks" for them is already a wonderful reward, but I realized that I was selling myself short and so began tutoring professionally in 2014. I mainly tutor SAT and ACT test prep as well as all grades in English reading and writing, and can also tutor U.S. History, Spanish, and Biology. My teaching method revolves around each student's individual learning style, so I often try a few different techniques in the first sessions to determine whether the client is a visual, verbal, or hands-on learner. For most students, a unique combination of the three helps to fully engage the mind into the subject matter, and the immersive learning experience teaches students how to apply this new knowledge in both current and future classes. Regardless of the subject, my sessions will always include study-skills and organization techniques so that each student has a strong foundation upon which to build their empire of understanding. My interests include screenwriting, film production, dance, yoga, improvisational theatre, and hanging out with my lovely little parakeet, Poof.
