Shanna R - Tutor in Colleen Glen

I am creative and fun and sometimes believe that sarcasm is a language :-) I love my dogs and enjoy taking them for walks. I have a baby boy who is my whole world. Life is an experience and school should not have to be a drag - so I do my best to help wherever I can.

Subjects taught
  • Drama

    All the worlds a stage... you just need to know your part :-) Drama was one of my majors in university and it is the ultimate subject to help you with English as well as your self-confidence. Not everyone is an actor, but Drama is so much more than that...

  • Natural Sciences

    I love to become that 'mad scientist' as we explore the wonders of the smallest atoms around us... the world is a beautiful place. Experiments are fun as you discover the how and the why. The study of animals and plants fascinating.

  • Geography

    I love to travel and Geography is all about the amazing world we live in. It actually goes hand-in-hand with History. I have taught this subject to various grades and there are many fun ways to make the content relevant.

  • History

    I absolutely love History and believe in understanding the story behind it all. History is life, it is not just a bunch of boring facts. Everything happens for a reason :-) I have lots of teaching experience in History.

  • English Language and Literature

    English was one of my majors in University and I have taught it across numerous grades over the past ten years. I especially love poetry, literature and film study. Some things in English may be tedious, but there are ways to learn and understand it.
