About Shawn

Hello my name is Shawn a biology major from Ramapo college. I have tutored many kids at the elementary level both one on one and in groups. I have tutored students for 6+ years now in all elementary subjects. I have also worked as an assistant teacher at three different schools. I used to tutor upper level classes at Bergen Community College. I have worked with several special education students. I can help students in math, English, science and history. I can help them finish homework, prepare for exams and receive better grades.
I believe in building a study plan with students by discovering your weak points and incorporating them into the session. I think that the more personal a tutoring session can be, the better. Everyone has a different way of learning and understanding things. I have worked with students that are auditory, visual and kinesthetic learners. I will make difficult concepts easy and fun, which will ultimately help improve grades. Looking forward to hearing from you.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored students for over 6 years now in all elementary subjects. I can help students in math, science, history and English. I have worked as an assistant teacher for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade.

Elementary Math

At Ramapo, although I was a biology major, I went really far in math. I minored in math, which is my favorite subject. I successfully completed up to calculus 3 in college. I have helped students with all types of elementary math. Math is my favorite subject to tutor in. I will give in-depth explanations helping students feel more comfortable, which will lead to better grades. I also like to keep the student ahead of what they are learning so when they are in class they are going over stuff they have already covered with me. I have tutored all types of elementary math, including special-education math.

Elementary Science

I was a biology major, so I have a great deal of knowledge in science. I successfully finished almost every upper-level science course offered. Although elementary science is simple, it may be difficult for certain students. I can help make hard concepts easy and fun to understand in auditory and visual ways.

ESL/ESOL

I have helped people of all different ages learn how to speak and understand the English language.

Fitness

I have helped a lot of young children get in better shape. I have coached wrestling and helped kids lose weight. I have given private lessons as a personal trainer. I can put children on a diet that will benefit them in the long run.

Handwriting

As a young child, I had poor handwriting and had to work really hard to improve it. I remember the many methods that were used to improve my handwriting, and I would love to share those methods with students struggling. I have helped 1st graders in the local elementary school improve handwriting during after school sessions. Hope I can help you.

Hindi

I am Indian. I have been speaking Hindi my whole life.I can also speak Urdu and Punjabi. I have helped tutor students in Hindi for 3 years now. I have tutored individuals of all different ages, including elementary students and college students.

Reading

Throughout my years of tutoring, I have noticed young student's struggle in language arts, which includes reading, writing and spelling. I have helped many young student improve their grammar and reading. I have worked as an assistant teacher and tutored after school for 6+ years now. I have tutored and helped people improve essays at Ramapo college and Bergen community college. I can help young children improve as well.

Study Skills

I have helped students design personal study guides, which have improved test scores. I can help make difficult concepts easy. Each student has his or her own way of learning. I have come across auditory, visual and kinesthetic learners. I have worked after school at a local elementary school for 5+ years. At this elementary school I helped 5th grade students, who were struggling in specific subjects design study guides. These study guides helped improve test scores.
