Shelley

I have over 5 years of experience in working with students in one-on-one and small group settings. I believe that individualized instruction is vital to the success of students. My passion for education and my past experiences have proven that I am an effective tutor. I am currently completing my final year of a Master's in Early Childhood Education at Georgia State. I am a certified elementary school teacher, and hold an endorsement to teach students who speak a language other than English as a first language.

At the core of my teaching style is my ability to create a supportive learning environment, strong organizational plan, and a setting in which my students can feel open to ask questions that will promote their success. My personal experiences and genuine passion for education have shaped my desire to tutor. I believe that, with the appropriate support, every student can be successful.

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe in instilling a passion for learning within my students. During my lessons, I think-aloud, interact with the text, and use opportunities promote inquiry. I believe that all students can meet their full learning potential with support, high expectations, and in a safe learning environment. Learning should be fun, engaging, and meaningful.
