"Hello! My name is Shannon. I graduated from Stanford University a few years ago with a degree in History, Philosophy, and the Arts and then went on to earn a master's degree from the Teacher Education Program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I am a licensed English Language Arts teacher with a year of experience teaching ninth and tenth grade humanities at full-inclusion public high school for the arts in Boston. Before that, I spent a few months helping high school students whose first language was Spanish to speak, read, and write in English. I now teach art and art history to visitors with disabilities at an art museum.

I absolutely love reading, writing, learning about history, and making art -- and my enthusiasm shows in my lessons! Whether we are discussing a moment in history, a book, or the nitty-gritty details of English grammar, I aim to make the content as engaging and accessible as possible because everyone has different ways of learning. I represent the information in my lessons in multiple ways -- visually, musically, and kinetically -- and I offer my students different ways of expressing themselves. I have worked with my students to break down difficult concepts into manageable parts, offer guidance on essays and tests, and improve their public speaking and writing skills. I really do believe that anyone, regardless of background, age, and ability, can learn and improve as students when they put their mind to it. I have taught students from ages 11 to 100(!) so I am flexible to tutoring students of various ages and learning goals -- whether that means studying for a specific class or learning out of a passion for a subject. All my lessons will be conducted virtually via video chat, and I offer free cancellation up to 12 hours before our lesson. Please feel free to contact me if you'd like to arrange a free consultation meeting to discuss what you hope to gain from our lessons and how I can best support you. Thank you!
