L4L's mission is to help children build a strong reading foundation by providing affordable, personalized and effective private reading tutoring for children ages 6-12.

Meet the Tutor

Hello, my name is Shannon! I am a certified teacher with 9 years experience in teaching foundational reading. I've taught grades Pre-K3, Pre-K4, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 4th grade. I received my Bachelor's degree at University of Houston-Downtown in Interdisciplinary Studies to become a teacher in 2013. I also received my Master of Education in Special Education at Lamar University to become an Educational Diagnostician in 2021.

I created Love 4 Literacy Tutoring service because I developed a passion for teaching children how to read. Sadly, reading instruction in the classroom is not individualized as it should, to meet the learning needs of all students. As a result, this causes learning gaps for students who need more support. If reading intervention doesn't occur right away, the child can get behind in reading by 2 to 3-grade levels. From my experience, it is disheartening to see children unmotivated because of their inability to read as well as their peers. Being a tutor will allow me to build positive relationships with children and help them become confident readers.

What's Offered?

Personalized Learning

I understand that each student is unique and requires instruction tailored to their personal learning style and needs. Meeting students at their level, along with encouragement and patience, will help build their confidence for academic success.


Students will receive a comprehensive assessment that will provide information about their reading level, reading behaviors, comprehension, fluency, phonetic knowledge and phonemic awareness. Assessment and progress monitoring checks will be used to make informed decisions to plan effective and efficient reading intervention.


All lessons will be taught from a researched based curriculum that has been proven to show positive results.

Don't let your child fall behind!

"Without a strong foundation in reading, children are left behind at the beginning of their education. They lag in every class, year after year because more than 85 percent of the curriculum is taught by reading. And by the end of third grade, 74 percent of struggling readers won’t ever catch up. In fact, one of the most important predictors of graduating from high school is reading proficiently by the end of third grade." ~ The Children's Reading Foundation
