Effective and convenient one-on-one tutoring in all areas of English, including test prep and essay writing.
m a Connecticut-certified English teacher (grades 7-12) with a Masters in Education and an Ivy League graduate. I have a strong background in writing and literary analysis, SAT/ACT/AP (Lit/Lang) prep, ten years teaching at the high school level, and seven years tutoring as well as conducting writing workshops for adults. I have successfully worked with students in 4th grade up through those who are working on their masters and PhDs.
Shannon is an excellent tutor. She has a very calm and patient style of teaching. She connected well with my son and he enjoys working with her. Shannon was able to quickly identify my son's specific areas of weakness in his SAT testing. They are now focusing on these areas (reading and writing) in an effort to improve his future score. I have the utmost confidence that this will occur. I recommend Shannon highly and without hesitation.
She is very professional, charming, and prompt. There's nothing more you can ask for in a tutor. Our first lesson was wonderful - filled with things I did not know that will help raise my numbers on the SAT and ACT exams.
