After one meeting with Jack, my son is ready to meet again! He enjoyed Jack's approach for the first meeting. We both suspect the subsequent meetings will be set up to target additional test taking skills/strategy along with review of practice test homework in all 3 areas. Looks like we are off to the right start.

Shannon started tutoring my daughter, a high school junior, this past spring, in English and Chemistry. He rapidly assessed the course work, areas she struggled with, and was very effective In moving her work forward, such that she improved more than a full letter grade in English, and a full grade in Chemistry and went into final exams with confidence. Shannon is excellent at literature analysis, writing mechanics, vocabulary - and his teaching style is creative and tailored to the student. He gives lots of practical tips As to how to move forward even when the subject topic is not your favorite. He's also excellent in Chemistry again, assessing both the coursework required and teaching specific concepts as well as how to approach the material. Shannon is punctual, realistic and positive in his approach, and makes every effort to be flexible with appointment times and provide the tutoring time needed. He really helped my student get back on track and end her school year successfully!

I've also had many years experience in real-world economics and business, working in a number of industries and running my business. I look forward to helping students understand some of the more complex concepts, especially as they relate to the marketplace today. ... More
"Tutoring for business/economics, social sciences and English."
I used to teach economics in high school. I have a specialization in macroeconomics, industrial economics, money & banking, consumer economics, and I have made a special study of Austrian economics...the better to dazzle your friends and return the confusion your most likely Keynesian professors and teachers have tried to shove off on you!
Economics is a great love of mine, and I love to help people understand how it works. ... More

"Wisdom, Confidence, Intellectual Capital and the Academic Edge!"
I took several economics courses as an undergraduate which included micro and macroeconomics. I have since taught the same classes at the high school honors level for 6 years, and have taught AP economics for 2 years. I have become well versed in the main principles and concepts of basic economics and have read "Principles of Economics" by Gregory Mankiw several times. In addition to owning the text book, I have a supplemental CD and workbooks, as well as several other college texts and materials. ... More
