About this tutor

I have been a home educator for 26 years and I have graduated three of my four children. My last student is 11th grade. I am very passionate about education and learning and because of that in 2014 I started working with other families whose children needed help with various subjects, such as, math, reading, spelling, history, science, and so much more. I began opening my home to many students and parents who were looking for more than just "school", they were looking for enjoyment and new experiences. Biology labs , such as dissections, became one of my most sought after class. I am also an educator who thinks out of the box and presents materials in a fun, new, and fresh way. I believe that every student is different and deserves the education that is right for them. I also started a Facebook homeschool group that has grown to over 650 members in my local area. I am knowledgeable in most curriculums and within moments of sitting with both parent and student I can tell what will work for them. I tutor kindergarten through third grade, but I can tutor on up to high school level. I enjoy seeing students grasp a concept that they could not grasp beforehand. 

I don't see this as "work" because I love teaching children of all ages. I have the opportunity to take something that is "difficult" and turn it into a great learning experience that get students and parents excited. Individualized attention is one of the best ways a student can progress and my "job" is to make sure they just don't progress with me, but in whatever educational environment they are in. I love encouraging and telling a student that they can do anything and that "practice makes progress." After that they are no longer afraid to make mistakes.

    My daughter attended Shesta’s preschool for approximately 6 months. By the end of those 6 months my 3 yr old could: identify first 20 numbers. Identify most letters ( she gets g and p mixed up sometimes). Knows the phonetic sounds of all letters. Started to learn some sight words. Could spell her name. Shesta is very patient and experienced teacher.

    Shesta has a wonderful way of taking her time to explain subjects in a way that the student gets the full meaning. She teaches in a way that the child actually learns the way that THEY are programmed.... She has a natural way to break subjects down so that you get it! I mean you really get it.... and retain it because you know all parts and are able to teach it to someone... I have a little boy who has ADHD and her techniques transformed him into a great student! He was great in math and so she pushed him.... He struggled with reading and she kept trying technique until it snapped in place.... I can't say enough good things about her! Two thumbs up!


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I listen to the parents about what they believe their student needs assistance in. From there, I ask about student's learning style and I suggest resources for assessing where the student is academically. Then I meet with the student one-on-one to also help me to identify what type of student they are. I then prepare my plan of action and share it with the parent. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have 26 years of experience teaching in and out of the home. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My pricing is $25 per hour per subject or $90 per month for a subject. 

How did you get started teaching?

I wanted my children to have a good foundation and started teaching them at home. I sent the first one to Montessori kindergarten and they teacher asked me why I sent her when I was doing such a great job. From there began my journey into home education. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with many children on different levels of learning, maturities, and disabilities,  but most are in the homeschooling realm.
