I have an BA from UW. I have an MFA in English. I've taught at UMass Amherst; local colleges; Pisa, Italy; Cambridge and Canterbury, England. I'm fluent in Italian. I've tutor all subjects, including math and science for 40+ years. I offer tutoring at your home through video calls to protect your family and mine from Covid 19. I can help you set up your own home-school or teach in yours. I have been successfully helping children with their on-line classes from a safe distance via online. I have a library of children's books and teaching materials. I use additional materials to help students, such as Waldorf and Montessori items. I have turned my yard into an organic fruit and vegetable garden/ science lab for studying botany, agronomy, chemistry, biology, etc.. I do physics/ chemistry experiments in my garage and kitchen. I taught K-12, all subjects, to my now 19-year-old college honors student son with mostly with a Waldorf-friendly home school curriculum. I charge $20/hr.

Shane is simply fantastic. Shane is unflappably positive, she is personable, energetic, funny and entertaining; she is technically proficient and also a magnificent mentor. Shane inspires confidence and commitment and trust. I recommend her for any subject she says she is competent to teach. Grades? My seventh grader has struggled with math for several years now and after about a month of twice weekly tutoring, we got a note from school that our student had scored the highest mark in the class for a math test. We were ALL delighted. Confidence, attitude and subject-related anxiety? Our student is pretty happy to do homework or attend (remote) tutoring sessions with Shane. That might sound like thin praise but honestly, it's night and day compared to the dread and horror that math used to provoke. Shane's rates are VERY reasonable. Flexible scheduling. Never late. Internet setup is great, no trouble seeing, hearing and understanding her on Zoom. Shane really is simply fantastic.
