About Shane


Bio

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor's of Science in Exercise Science in 2014 and recently graduated from Ohio University with a Master's Degree in Physician Assistant Practice.

I have a great depth of experience with The Ohio State University's General Chemistry program, as I have been tutoring Chemistry 1210, 1220, and 1250, as well as Honors/AP Chemistry and Chemistry at Columbus State Community College, for over 3 years. I was also a General...

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor's of Science in Exercise Science in 2014 and recently graduated from Ohio University with a Master's Degree in Physician Assistant Practice.

I have a great depth of experience with The Ohio State University's General Chemistry program, as I have been tutoring Chemistry 1210, 1220, and 1250, as well as Honors/AP Chemistry and Chemistry at Columbus State Community College, for over 3 years. I was also a General Chemistry 1210 lab TA at OSU for two years. Over the last 3 years, I've tutored over 100 chemistry students, both at the high school and college levels, and through a variety of mediums, including in-person and online.

As for my tutoring methods, normally I will give a brief summary on the material and explain the key points and then ask if the tutee has any questions. After the tutee's questions have been answered, I will pick relevant practice problems from the chemistry textbook or create problems myself if appropriate. I will allow the tutee to attempt the problem, and if he/she is having trouble, I will give them a hint/guide them in the right direction. After completing the problem, either alone or with my aid, I will summarize how the problem was completed, step by step, and will emphasize any key points that may be helpful to the tutee. However, each student has a unique style of learning, and therefore I cater to their strengths and target their weaknesses.

I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your academic goals!

Explains better than my teacher.

Shane is very thorough in his explanations and makes sure that I understand it. He simplifies the complex concepts.

Awesome Chemistry tutor!

Shane was really helpful! I worked with Shane for a couple weeks during my College Chemistry class. He was able to pick up right where I was with the material and help explain it in a way that was both understandable and applicable to exactly what I was learning. It's very clear that Shane has spent a lot of time not just with the subject of Chemistry, but with the college coursework of Chemistry. I've worked with a couple other tutors and their explanations didn't feel relevant to what I actually needed to learn. Shane seemed to have a great handle on what a Chemistry Professor is likely expecting from students while also being able to describe real world applications. He could break down otherwise seemingly confusing material, and made it easy to learn. He was also really great with communicating availability and getting back about scheduling sessions in a really timely manner. Thanks Shane!

he is very thorough and knowledgeable.

Shane is very thorough, he goes through all the details to make sure you get the basic concepts. We will definitely make it a regular class and review all concepts we learn at school.

Great Tutor for General Chemistry

I was struggling with OSU's General Chemistry as many do, and Shane really helped not only to raise my grade, but also understand the subject. He went through every subject I struggled with and provided very clear explanations to help me understand them better. He also provided me with practice problems to work on.

Highly Recommended

Shane tutored me in Chem 1220 at OSU. We meet almost every week for about an hour and a half. He was always very accommodating to my schedule. During our tutoring session, we would cover the chapter covered in class and problems from the text book. When it came to midterms and the final, we would go over the practice exams. He was always very prepared for our sessions and knowledgeable about chemistry. He also was able to make the difficult topics easier for me to understand. If it wasn't for him, I don't think I would have passed the class!

Great Tutor

He was extremely helpful. He taught me a lot of information within the hour and he was great at explaining things. I definitely recommend him as a tutor.
