About Me

Experience Summary

I'm Shana! I am a Duke University and University of Maryland School of Law graduate and the founder of www.thisistutoring.com. I have over 15 years' experience tutoring all standardized tests. I am a certified, award-winning high school English teacher, school law attorney, and college professor with a passion for motivating high school and college graduates to pursue higher degrees. What our students say: “Shana teaches you how to get the score you need to get into the school you want. But Shana doesn't just help you with particular questions. Shana puts you in a better place than where you were. Shana taught me not to beat myself up and play all those mental games about trying to be perfect. It doesn’t help with your self esteem and it doesn’t help you on the test. ” --Corey, Washington, D.C. 3/9/16 Contact me today for a free consult or to discuss your tutoring needs!

Teaching Style

My approach is mastery learning- strategic and patient, at your pace. I work with you to diagnose your biggest weaknesses and teach you advanced strategies for test-taking success. Often times, weaknesses are not just found in content understanding and mastery, but also with test taking strategy and critical analysis technique. After a few 'a-ha' moments, you'll learn the approach you need and the confidence to think like the test maker and master your test! I specialize in working with repeat test takers, and students with test taking anxiety and learning disabilities (ADHD, ADD, Asperger's, Executive Functioning, Dyslexia, and Dyscalcula).

My Hobbies

Songwriting, Rockclimbing, Cooking, Baking, Meditation, Yoga, Road biking.
