About Dr. Shon

I have been teaching and tutoring for over 15 years. I like working with adult students as well as young people.

Adult students can expect to focus on your academics but also training you professionally to achieve your goals. I always want to discuss your long term and short term objectives. I enjoy coaching adult students in professional speaking, acting, and writing.

High school students can look forward to focusing on preparing you for college. As a former teacher and tutor for Kaplan, I understand how to train students to excel in standardized testing. In addition, to preparing students for testing, I continue to teach as a professor; therefore, I know what type of skills and experiences that is expected for college. I enjoy helping students prepare for college whether it's through tutoring through various subjects, writing college essays, and/or selecting the college that is for you.

In addition to specializing in college prep, I enjoy working with younger students as well. I try to make learning creative and challenging. We will work together and not move forward until the student feels comfortable with whatever subject we are working on at the time. I believe in making sure we have a positive atmosphere in order to motivate students to learn effectively.


No matter what level I am teaching, I do assign homework at the end of each session to ensure we are always working on a higher goal.

I look forward to helping you achieve your academic and future goals.

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.

Career Development

I have taught as a professor for over 15 years and advising students on their career is an essential part of teaching. In addition, I have conducted workshops on career development and helped my participants identify and work toward their goals.

College Counseling

As a professor, (I have a PhD) college counseling was part of my job description. I advised students on what classes that they should take, changing their major, and every aspect of their college career. In addition, I have several years of experience counseling high school students and their parents on which college and major they should select.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught Kindergarten for years and I have completed many Elementary classes at The Ohio State University and Ohio Dominican in Elementary education. In addition, I have experience tutoring many students K-6 throughout the years. I also am approved by the State of Georgia to offer classes of PLU (professional learning units) for K-6 teachers.

Handwriting

I taught handwriting with the Abeka curriculum as a Kindergarten teacher.

Public Speaking

I have taught public speaking on the college level for over 15 years at several colleges. I also have conducted several workshops, especially for teachers, for years. I speak professionally and I also coach speakers professionally.

Study Skills

As a previous tutor for Kaplan and teaching privately, study skills is essential for success in any subject matter. I am very versed in identifying and creating study skills plans for all subject levels for various students. I also conducted study skills workshops for my students. In addition, I participated in training to help first year college students at my university to help transition them in how to study successfully.

Theatre

I am a professional director (including Off-Broadway). I have directed several plays in various cities. In addition, I have also worked for several professional theatre companies.
