Shawn has been a great help in our daughter's Chemistry studies. It is one thing to know the topic, and quite another to be able to explain topics to a student who is frustrated and lacking any level of confidence in the class. Shawn explains the material in a way that our daughter understands it, and is honest with her about topics that are in fact more challenging. Our daughter now believes that Chemistry is something she can handle, and that is completely due to Shawn's tutoring.
Beyond the actual Chemistry work, my daughter is a student-athlete with commitments and schedules that can change daily. She is also not so good about letting me know when she needs some tutor-time either (ugh :) ). Despite these challenges Shawn is just a text away and is so incredibly accommodating about moving times or even coming over same day if possible. With both parents working and 3 other kids to chauffeur around, it's a huge benefit that Shawn comes to our house to do the tutoring - he even takes time to say hi to our dog. :)
Shawn was very helpful with tutoring our 10th grader in chemistry. Not only was he very clear with explaining the material, but he was also very flexible and generous with his time. I highly recommend him for anyone in need of chemistry lessons.
Shawn was my tutor this summer when I took accelerated college chem I in six weeks instead of fifteen. Shawn was very patient and made sure that we took as much time as was needed to completely understand the material. He also was flexible with his schedule and made sure to contact me about scheduling tutoring sessions. I would highly recommend Shawn to anyone who needs a chemistry tutor.
Shawn tutored our son in Honors Chemistry (10th grade) throughout this past school year. Shawn is very patient and he is very accessible. He worked very well with our son, vastly improving his grades. Also, Shawn had a very flexible schedule, and he was easy to reach and work with. Thank you Shawn!
Shawn was my chem tutor last semester. Before I met with Shawn I was well on my way to flunking the course. In my first test after meeting with Shawn I got a C. In my second test after we started our sessions I got an A. I would highly recommend Shawn as a tutor for Chemistry.
My daughter was really struggling with her high school Chemistry class and Shawn explained the concepts using language she could understand. He helped her prepare for tests, review labs, and generally boosted her confidence. Without Shawn's help, I don't think she would have passed the class.
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.
I have my 7th to 12th grade Chemistry Certification in Pennsylvania.
I have tutored organic chemistry students at Drexel University and have also completed three Organic Chemistry courses and two Organic Chemistry laboratories at the University. I have experience in naming and drawing organic structures as well as the types of reactions that take place in the field.
