About Shawn

My love of teaching began in my childhood bedroom, with my stuffed animals as the "students." As a Cum Laude graduate of Kean University, dedication to studying and learning can pay off big time! The greatest "prize" for me is seeing a student excel in a difficult area.

I've always been an English buff, if you will. Since I was born, I've always enjoyed reading and writing. I was the only one in the class who enjoyed learning about an independent clause and a run-on sentence. My interests allowed me to be inducted into Sigma Tau Delta, which is an English Honor Society.

My main specialties are Grammar, Reading, and Writing, but I can also focus on Literature. Lessons will be engaging and challenging yet not overwhelming. Homework will be given, in addition to periodic assessments and progress reports.

I'm open to evening sessions as well as Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons. I prefer to work with the student is his or her home. I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy; however, I am open to make-up sessions, should the need arise.

I look forward to your student excelling in all future studies!
