Shelley was great, she has a very effective way of teaching and is very patient. I needed to go over some Material before a test and she made it extremely easy for me to understand.

She worked through some complicated Excel problems with me and explained why excel functions worked the way they did. She was patient and very knowledgeable! I feel confident that I have done well in my course work.

Shelly has been a great find for my son who is taking a course at NOVA. He is having to take it for the second time and now with Shelly he is doing so much better and has confidence again in the class. I wish we had found her sooner last semester.
- Tami H. from Burke, VA
Shelley worked with me on my coursework and made a very helpful suggestion that I would not have thought of. I am looking forward to working with her again on my current course, Intermediate Algebra and also on College Algebra.
- Joan T. from Burke, VA
Shelley and I went over a Dreamweaver assignment that I had fallen behind on. She is a great tutor but also very down to earth and is able to explain things in the simplest terms. I will definitely be using Shelley again for tutoring services.
- Jonathan B. from Alexandria, VA
Shelley was able to help me relearn/teach me what I was supposed to have known in my year long high school math class within two weeks. She always came to out lessons prepared with work sheets, and a great attitude. Whenever there was a question I had that she could not answer on the spot, she would either text or tell me the solution with an explanation of why it worked. Thank you Shelley!
- Elizabeth B. from Vienna, VA
Shelley certainly knows her material. She is helping my daughter with her accounting class. It is so nice seeing my daughter leave Shelley with a smile on her face as she gets more and more comfortable with the material. I'm so glad we found her.

Shelly is amazing I understand the class web design projects better and she is very knowledgeable. I have confidence that I can finish my projects.
- Sima M. from Fairfax, VA
She is a really great tutor. I took her for my philosophy course, and I was not interested in philosophy at all. But, she made it very easy to understand, and she likes to make sure her students comprehend the material as easy as possible. She is also very very very patient with her students: she can say things over and over again which is not all tutors tend to do. If you want to succeed in your classes, take her immediately. She will guide you to the right path for success.

She takes the time to explain everything. I've learned a lot of new techniques for Power Point and my QuickBooks skills have improved. Thank you Shelley.

Shelley is really good teacher. I was surprised about the great knowledge and background information she has on the topic. She is very skilled in explaining the material. Easy to understand and talk to.
- Abdul B. from Falls Church, VA
My first session with Shelley went beyond my expectations for what could be accomplished with a tutor. I had expected spending time to calibrate our communication styles and coordinate my needs with how Shelley might be able to help. I was super happy to find that took no time at all! We were able to get straight to work on the aspects of DreamWeaver that I urgently needed to get a handle on. I can't wait to apply my new knowledge and develop a few web pages before our next lesson. Thank you Shelley!
- Karen C. from Hendersonville, NC
I really recommend her. She helped me in editing my research paper. She is knowledgeable and so kind. I really learned a lot from her.
- Asma A. from Fairfax, VA
Shelley was able to quickly discern the issues my daughter is having with test-taking. She provided constructive criticism in a nonjudgmental and kind way. She also devised a personalized plan of action that is doable, and we are looking forward to more sessions with her soon!
- Amy A. from Mechanicsville, VA
Shelley is the absolute best. I needed help with a research capstone project for a graduate level course. The instructions for the project were very vague with little guidance. After my first meeting with Shelley, I walked away feeling very optimistic about the project. Shelley responded to my emails promptly and always made herself available for additional questions or concerns following our meetings. I earned an "A" on the project and I honestly don't think I would have if it were not for Shelley.
- Malissa A. from Midway, GA
Our firm (a mid-size accounting firm) used Shelley's services to give additional training to two employees in Microsoft Office and general computer use on a weekly basis for several months. Shelley is very patient and was able to break down computer concepts so that they were easier to understand for our two employees. Both employees enjoyed their sessions and have vastly improved their computer skills which has translated in simplifying and speeding up their work. She was always on-time and very flexible. I highly recommend using Shelley as a tutor!
