About Shawn


Bio

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. ...

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.
