About Shawn

I have always placed value on knowledge and acquiring knowledge. Even in elementary school, I was always helping other students, teaching them rather than just giving them the right answers. This continued all the way through high school, where I signed up to be part of the student tutoring program. This program gave students like myself the opportunity to assist other students who had difficulty with their classes but were too intimidated to ask their teachers. Once I realized how many students were too afraid to ask someone for help, I began applying that to my professional tutoring life. After I graduated valedictorian with honors, I accepted the Presidential Scholarship from SFSU, spending a year on the Dean's list. I then transferred to California State University Northridge, becoming a contracted tutor while getting my Bachelor's of Science in Computer Science (with honors).

My goal is to make sure that students do not feel ashamed for not knowing something. I offer patience, kindness, and understanding with my tutoring. I love being able to help students rise to their potential and finding the "trouble spots" in whatever subject they are currently having trouble with. I can meet at the student's home or another comfortable location conducive for learning (such as the local library), whichever is more convenient for the student and his or her family.

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.

Logic

I am a computer science student a year from graduating, so many of the classes I have passes have a fundamental basis in logic. When I took Philosophy 230, also known as formal logic, I got over 100% for a final grade.
