About Dr. Shon


Bio

I have been teaching and tutoring for almost twenty 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.

I have been teaching and tutoring for almost twenty 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 are 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.

Excellent, Awesome, Intelligent

Dr. Shon B. Is exactly what every student need. She has an understanding of different learning styles and knows how to use them for the student benefit. Dr. Shon's teaching skills is a definite reflection of her background she is also patient. I have a niece who is very intelligent but her confidence in certain subjects was not as high as it should be. Dr. Shon encouraged her and had my niece prove to herself that she knew the curriculum. My niece is in a quality rated school system in Fayetteville, Ga if we had more dedicated instructors such as Dr. Shon in all school systems who knows how to reach students using the different learning styles I'm sure everyone's confidence would be of expectation, especially in this school system. I am so proud to have hired Dr. Shon to help my student, she is God sent and my niece speaks highly of her and always look forward to our/her next session with Dr. Shon. Message to Dr. Shon continue being a blessing with the gift given to you and continue touching as many lives as possible with your positive energy. I am more confident in my baby that she will succeed. Thank you.

Very pleased with Dr. Shon B.

Very pleased with Dr. Shon B. and Wyzant Dr. Shon B. did a great job preparing my daughter for the ACT test. She was very punctional, kind, knowledgeable and professional. One of the things that my daughter said to me " I really enjoyed how positive and motivational she was during the sessions and that I would definitely recommend Dr. Shon to any of her peers interesting in raising their ACT scores". I have no doubt that my daughter ACT scores will improve by many points to achieve her goals of being accepted to the University of her choice; due to working hard and being well prepared with Dr. Shon B. - THANKS !

Knowledgable and Patient

It was with great pleasure meeting Dr. Shon Saturday. She was very patient with my daughter and really took the time to find out her trouble areas with reading and math. I can't wait for our next session with Dr. Shon. Thank you.

Great tutor, very helpful, helps get all work done

I met with Dr. Shon to get help with an English paper and had not started at all. What I liked a lot was that she had a game plan and helped me get organized for the paper. We took it section by section and included everything. She was really good at helping by her skill and techniques. Not only was I not prepared for the paper, but I was also behind. Dr. Shon helped me get on track and be were I was suppose to as well as motivate me to write the paper and interest me. By helping to motivate me, we got a lot more done and usually I do not like writing papers so this was a great plus. Most importantly I believe her personality fit mine so I was comfortable around her. She helped me a lot and I will continue to visit Dr. Shon.

Amazing with young adults!

Dr. Shon has done an excellent job with my son thus far. She holds him accountable in all areas of his study's. Not only does she require her students to do the work, but also maintain good eating, sleeping & study habits. I love that she is flexible with her schedule with students that have part time jobs and participate in extra curricular activities. She has some how managed to motivate my child to wake up (on his own) and start his day fresh reviewing his work before he start his day going to school or meeting with her. - Thanks Dr Shon!
