Hey, my name is Shane. I was born and raised in Maine, and went to Georgia Tech for Computer Engineering. I primarily develop and teach curriculum for extracurricular education programs that focus on fun technology and science. For example, modding Minecraft. Over the last seven years, I have worked as a SAT/ACT prep tutor, AP class subject tutor, and college level course tutor, and enjoyed every second of it.

I have subject tutoring experience in all math subjects through 3-dimensional calculus, programming in C, C++ and Java, and algebra or calculus based physics through electromagnetics. I also have experience tutoring introductory psychology, chemistry, and English.

I have extremely flexible hours and am willing to travel almost anywhere in the greater Atlanta area. I have experience working with children and students of all ages, from ages 6 through college students. I work to make myself easy to talk to and get along with, as I believe tutoring should be an enjoyable experience for everyone in order to maximize success.

Chemistry

Earning a computer engineering degree from Georgia Tech had left me no stranger to Chemistry. I've never encountered a problem with a student I couldn't figure out. From Ions to Lewis Structures, I've seen it all. Also, I've been trained through various professional experiences in instruction and I know the best way to get the concepts across so that students not only understand the problems and questions they currently have, but gain a foundation for problem solving in the future.

Java

Earning a computer engineering degree from Georgia Tech had left me no stranger to programming and Java. The past two years I've been the lead instructor and developer for Java classes at Digital Media Academy, a world renowned tech camp. Also, I've been trained through various professional experiences in instruction and I know the best way to get the concepts across so that students not only understand the problems they currently have, but gain a foundation for problem solving in the future.
