About Shawn

I am a retired elementary teacher born and raised in the New Orleans area. I now live in Ponchatoula. I have taught all grades from K-6 in the public school system. Most of my teaching career was spent teaching first and second graders. I enjoy working one on one with children helping them love to learn.

I am very specific on how I teach grammar and how to write sentences to paragraphs.

I show various methods to solve math problems to help understand challenging math concepts

I use all learning styles to teach letter and blend sounds.

I am very big on encouraging children to try their best while working on challenging material through practice and repetition.

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.

Bible Studies

I am a devoted Christian who has taught Sunday School. I have done numerous Bible studies on my own as well as with small groups. I believe that memorization and word study makes Bible study easier.

Handwriting

I have taught handwriting throughout my whole teaching career. I take great care in teaching K-2nd graders to print their letters properly and clearly. I teach cursive writing in a very fun and precise manner.

Phonics

I have taught phonics as part of the reading program for most of my 17 years of teaching and tutoring. I am very specific with teaching letter sounds and blends to read and spell words. I use various methods to teach phonics based on the children I am working with. I believe that each child needs a firm foundation in phonics to be successful readers.

Religion

I have taught Catechism classes, RCIA classes and Sunday school classes. I have a working knowledge of all world religions. I teach about all religions in an unbiased manner.

Social Studies

My concentration was social studies while getting my teaching degree. I taught social studies in one degree or another throughout my 17 years of teaching. I do my best to teach social studies in a very unbiased manner. Social studies has always been my best subjects in school.
