My name is Shawn and I am an experienced tutor and teacher. I have taught within several disciplines, both academic and non-academic, including English, mathematics, linguistics, swimming, climbing, and rescue skills.

I am a linguist, geologist, and Egyptologist by training. I have studied ancient languages for years and can help you with your Latin. For beginners of Latin or those who are struggling in the early stages I can help you better understand how cases and declensions work, as well as some simple sound changes that will help you remember paradigms easier. Or, if you are interested I can teach you Egyptian Hieroglyphs. We can spend one lesson learning about the writing, how to spell out simple words and names in hieroglyphs or several lessons working our way through some common materials so that you can visit a museum and read some of the texts yourself.

Feel free to contact me for a set of summer tutoring sessions to help you prepare for the SATs, PSATs, and other tests. Single lessons or a group of lessons where we review strategies for test preparation, reading strategies, and vocabulary are available. It is my preference, whenever teaching, to work on potential challenges earlier, to prepare for them rather than through single meetings, when it is more of a triage situation. Contact me if you are interested or want to work out a plan that involves multiple days. I can be flexible.

I have:
BAs from Umass Amherst in Linguistics and Philosophy
BS from Stony Brook in Geology
MA from Boston College in Linguistics
MA from NYU in Egyptology.
