About Shannon

Hello! My name is Shannon. I have a Ph D in philosophy and have been teaching both online and in the traditional classroom for over 20 years. I really enjoy working one on one with students and helping them to build confidence through mastery of course material. I have found that students are naturally good at philosophy, but have not always had teachers who have been able to help them make the connection between their natural aptitude and testing or examination situations. If you found a tutor via this website, you have excellent critical thinking and logical skills. I would like to help you translate that ability into good grades and better understanding of your subject matter.

Many people believe they are not good at math or have a "math phobia." I understand that completely, but feel that it is a sign that no one has yet taken the correct approach for that particular student. Anyone who functions in today's world has to have a good appreciate of problem solving. It's just a matter of making the right connections in the right contexts.

I love teaching philosophy because I believe it is at base an empowerment discipline. Philosophy gives each student more skills to create and achieve the goals he or she wishes to set. Philosophy is about better, more clear thinking and communication something that is of value to each of us.

I hold a 2nd degree black belt in Taekwondo and own a martial arts studio in Wisconsin. In 2015 I qualified for the third time for the US Nationals Full Contact Stick Fighting Team and will represent the US at the World Championships in Hawaii in 2016.

I look forward to hearing from you and working together to create a fun, engaging, and productive learning relationship. I firmly believe that each student can be successful if we only find the correct approach for your learning style and interests. :-)

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.

Logic

I have a Ph D in philosophy from Penn State University and have taught Logic both online and in the classroom for more than 20 years at the college level. Past positions include Assistant Professor at Penn State University, Associate Professor at Mount Mary University, and currently faculty at Bryant & Stratton College online. I particularly enjoy working one on one with students in logic and math.

Martial Arts

I am a 2nd degree black belt in TaeKwonDo and a three time member of the US Nationals Full Contact Stick Fighting Team. I co-own a martial arts studio in Wisconsin where I teach classes to children and adults.

Philosophy

I have a PH D in Philosophy from The Pennsylvania State University, have edited The Encyclopedia of Ethics from BBI Press, and am a Fulbright Scholar. I have taught Philosophy both in the traditional classroom and online at the college level for over 20 years and continue to actively research and publish in the field. I enjoy working with students of all experience and ability levels from beginning students looking for support and guidance in an introductory level class to students working on advanced topics. I am especially interested in history of philosophy, logic, ethics, and Eastern Philosophy but happy to help out in any class.
