About Shawn

I am an informed and knowledgeable instructor who specializes in history, politics, government, and many of the social sciences. I have a passion for these disciplines and know how to maximize a student's performance in these areas by increasing his/her interest in them; and thoroughly explaining their relevance. Additionally, I will share the skills and techniques I have learned which have helped me to perform well both in the classroom and in various other testing environments.

Finally, my experiences as a supplemental middle and high-school teacher, a tutor for high-school students in an ICC after-school program, as well as my time spent in college admissions (Bradley University), have uniquely prepared me for the challenges students face in picking up these subjects; and navigating the confusing path from high school to college. I have a keen understanding of what it takes to succeed at nearly all levels of education, and the necessity to prepare oneself for the "next level." I have helped countless students prepare for and gain admission to college. I will take pleasure in doing this for you as well.

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

During my tenure at Bradley and ICC I have counseled numerous students on planning and preparing for a careers after high school and/or college. My experiences in these positions as well as my extensive professional background will allow me to be quite helpful in this area.

College Counseling

I worked for three years as an admissions counselor at Bradley University and one as a counselor/tutor for high school students enrolled in ICC's Upward Bound Program. While working for Bradley I both recruited, counseled, and admitted hundreds of students. I also served as their primary contact for financial aid matters.
