Shanna is an amazing Ochem tutor! She does not simply restate what you hear in lecture but actually teaches you the steps of the mechanisms so you can apply that knowledge to any reaction. With her help I went from a being a D Ochem student to a B+ Ochem student in just two exams! My only regret is not having her as my tutor at the beginning of my adventures with Ochem. Friendly, approachable, knowledgeable, and effective---all words that describe this tutor.
Shanna is one of the best tutors i have ever had. I met her while taking Chemistry at Penn State. She is really knowledgeable, but her true talent is helping you to understand the material. After thoroughly explaining whatever subject you may be on, she continues by making sure that you understand the material. She usually does this by carefully guiding you through several examples, then letting you try them on your own. I tried a few Chemistry tutors, but quickly found myself Checking for her name on the tutoring scheduled. I am quite certain that i could not have passed chemistry with out her.
Shanna is a great teacher! She is energetic, knowledgeable and caring. My grades drastically improved after Shanna tutored me in ochem. Shanna can teach difficult Chem material in a way that makes it easier to grasp.
