Mrs Shannon K. of West Hills CA USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Mrs Shannon K.
Gender: Female   Age: 31-40
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I am an Educational Therapist and Home School Teacher. I specialize in working with students of all ages and grades. Many of my students have been diagnosed with either a learning disability or developmental disorder - i.e. Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, Dyslexia, ADHD, and Tourette's Syndrome. I have a Master's Degree in Special Education, with a minor in EDucational Therapy. I also have a Bachelor's Degree in English. Currently, I am attending school for my Doctorate in Psychology.

When I work with a student I try to meet their specific needs because everyone learns differently. I try to use their individual strengths to help boost confidence in their educational experience and assist in improving their weak areas. I have lots of patience and love helping students achieve success. The best is seeing when the light bulb goes on and a student has actually learned something that was once difficult to understand.
