Apple Tree Tutors was founded by Lori Shelton.


Lori Shelton is a retired educator with 28 years of experience.  Lori spent 15 years in the classroom before moving into other areas of service.  During her career, she served as a reading facilitator, an academic interventionist, and a literacy coach for her home state.  Also, Lori was privileged to teach  developmental reading at a local community college for 5 years. Lori completed her undergraduate degree in Elementary Education at the University of Southern Mississippi, then received her master’s at Belhaven University.  She has a K-12 reading endorsement and her preferred area of tutoring is working with struggling readers of all ages. Lori is an Associate Trainer with the Center for Teacher Effectiveness in the area of student motivation and engagement strategies. She and her husband, Greg, live in Brandon, Mississippi.  


With Lori’s life-long career in education, she saw Covid-19 as an opportunity to create a centralized virtual learning/teaching platform for students and tutors. 




Our goal at Apple Tree Tutors is to provide a platform for teachers to reach potential students; to provide a platform for students to find a licensed teacher; and to build children's confidence in themselves through education and learning.
