Shannon is incredibly knowledgeable in course content. She is fantastic at taking a complex topic and breaking it down to make it understandable. She is friendly and seems to be very invested and passionate about student success.
I have Known Shannon for over seven years and met through a mutual friend, I personally witnessed her kindness, gentleness, generosity, compassion, patience and her attention to detail. She is a gifted teacher and communicator and is quite passionate about her students absorbing and understanding the material she is teaching. She helped me to resolved conflicts by being objective and articulate. Shannon has a sound knowledge of computer skills and has helped me repeatedly therefore I highly recommend Shannon to the other Superprof Members because of the brilliance of her mind and her impeccable character and honesty.
Shannon has been a huge help for me while I am completing an honours project in the fourth year of my B.Sc. She has looked over my writing and listened to my presentations and given me a lot of helpful and insightful advice because she has a lot of experience with writing and grading papers. I would most definitely recommend if you are looking for some good advice about a paper or looking for some guidance about what you want to do after your degree!
Shannon has a deep knowledge in the life sciences. From participating in agriculture, notably beef production, research to teaching Human Anatomy and Physiology undergraduate courses. She is confident and professional but also understanding and helpful. I throughly enjoyed learning from her, particularly the helpful job-related advice and information she provided after I graduated.
Dr. Tracey has been a great help in deciding what I want to do after completing my Bachelor of Science degree. She really takes the time to go through the different options with me and is extremely encouraging. Talking with Dr. Tracey has been very reassuring and I am more confident about my own future after my discussions with her. She really listens and cares about her students and wants to see them succeed.
Shannon has been working with me and tutoring me in Anatomy and Physiology for the past three months. Shannon's extensive knowledge and exceptional ability to teach the material have allowed me to gain an in-depth understanding of all course material. She is very aware of the different learning styles and has adapted to what suits me best. I would highly recommend Shannon as a tutor if you are looking!!!

My father was a Biology professor and even as a young child I used to go to the lab with him. I was fascinated by the specimens and diagrams.
As I grew older, I was intrigued by what made biological systems tick, especially in animals, so I pursued a doctorate in animal physiology
I love seeing how the structure and function work together. I am also interested to see what happens when diseases and injuries disrupt homeostasis.
I love the one-on-one interactions with students. It is gratifying when I can help them feel like they are mastering the material and succeeding in their course. It is wonderful when I see them go from feeling overwhelmed and confused to being confident and clear.
I have had many amazing teachers over the years.
I listen to what the student's goals are for the tutoring sessions and I tailor my tutoring to his or her learning style. I synthesize new information with previous material to help the student make sense of the new material.
