About Shawn

Hello. My name is Shawn and I am a lifelong student and educator. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology with an English minor from Western Kentucky University. I also have a Master of Science in human services from Murray State University and am currently enrolled as a doctoral student in higher education policy studies and evaluation at the University of Kentucky .

I am the principal of Northside Baptist Christian School and I teach psychology at West Kentucky Community and Technical College. I teach courses in general and developmental psychology and have previously taught group dynamics, adult development, marriage and family, statistics, and research design. I have also taught high school junior/senior English, geometry, advanced algebra, Bible, and psychology.

I have worked with students of all ages, from kindergarten to adults, and also have a great deal of experience with special needs students. I tailor my teaching style to the needs of each student and have had success in working with students to raise standardized test scores and grades in a number of subjects.

Thank you for considering my qualifications.

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.

ACT English

I have conducted a great deal of ACT preparation with secondary school students. I have worked with students both individually and in groups.

College Counseling

I have worked in higher education for ten years, specifically as a college counselor for seven. I have a B.A. in psychology, a M.S. in human services, and am a doctoral candidate in educational policy studies and evaluation at the University of Kentucky.

Public Speaking

I have significant public speaking experience, including presentations for social service agencies and colleges. I have spoken at a number of businesses, community events, and high schools on behalf of the colleges where I have worked. I also have a great deal of experience training employees and teaching. I have taught psychology and related courses for the past 12 years and often discuss public speaking as part of my social psychology curriculum. My most recent presentation was the commencement speech for the 2014 Northside Baptist Christian School graduation.

Special Needs

I have about 12 years experience working with clients who face a variety of physical, intellectual, and emotional challenges. I have served as a qualified mental retardation professional, a social services agency director, a state social worker, and a regulator for the Medicaid Supported Community Living waiver. I have worked with individuals with an array of psychiatric diagnoses, developmental disorders, and intellectual disorders.
