About Shaun

I moved to Arizona two years ago from Los Angeles to teach in a network of classical public charter schools. I am an Arizona Highly Certified instructor in Middle/High School English and History, as well as Elementary Education, and I have a Master's Degree (Honors) in Philosophy. My undergraduate degree is in Religion, with an emphasis in Biblical Studies. I have two years of teaching experience in a classical K-12 Academy and will be continuing my third year this Fall.

My graduate degree required a great deal of analytic writing in pursuit of publication, which has allowed me to hone my own writing skills. In my current position as an 8th grade Lit/Comp and 9th Grade Humane Letters teacher (English, Philosophy, and History), I have had the opportunity to incorporate my writing experience into training students how to write academically as well. I am also responsible to teach advanced grammar, as well as literature, in 8th grade Lit/Comp.

I have been successfully tutoring Middle and High School Grammar, Writing, and Philosophy, as well as Elementary Math students for the past two years. I have also tutored undergraduate students in Logic and Introduction to Philosophy for two years as a graduate student.

I look forward to helping you succeed in your studies!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Religion, with an emphasis in Biblical Studies. My graduate Philosophy degree was earned in a seminary, which had a requirement of five theology courses, and four biblical studies courses. The formal label of the degree is in Philosophy of Religion. I have taught theology, Bible, and spiritual formation to youth for three years as a youth director in a church.

Guitar

I have played guitar for 20 years, and have taught over a dozen students to play guitar that did not previously play. I am qualified primarily to teach chord formation, rhythm, and popular musical playing styles. I can read music, but do not teach sight reading or classical guitar.

Logic

I have a Master's Degree in Philosophy, which requires logic as a foundational tool in order to be successful. I took modern symbolic logic in my graduate coursework; this included a survey of Sentential, Counterfacutal Logic, Modal Logic, and Predicate Logic. I was a Teaching Assistant for Undergraduate Logic for 1 year, where the focus was on classical logic. I graded logic homework, administered logic tests, and tutored students. I taught a brief module on classical logic this year as a Prep Academy Teacher to 8th and 9th graders.

Religion

I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Religion. My graduate degree is in Philosophy of Religion. I have taught religion to youth for 3 years.

Writing

I teach high school writing in an advanced classical charter school, and have tutored students in middle school, high school, and at the undergraduate level in the proper execution of the academic essay.
