Shawn

I am a last semester senior at Boston University's Kilachand Honors College and Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation studying a Bachelor of Science in Human Physiology. I am on course to matriculate into Boston University School of Medicine to continue my dream of becoming a pediatric physician. I have numerous experiences working with children of all ages through my role as assistant teacher at a local Chinese school, or my clinical experience working at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children.

I specialize in test preparation strategies for the ACTs, MCATs and APs, but am equally qualified to tutor in numerous biology related topics in addition to Mandarin Chinese. With my time almost up as an undergraduate, I want to continue doing what I have enjoyed in high school: tutoring and helping students to increase scores and achieve better grades. Knowing that every student studies in different ways, I am flexible and also take the time to get to know your needs or your child's needs to ensure a personalized tutoring experience that will maximize learning and mastery of the subjects of interest. In my experience, helping students and seeing them succeed after their hard work is very rewarding for both myself, the student and the family. Not only do I seek to help students achieve academic and testing success , I also strive to foster students' capability to learn and problem solve independently, skills that will apply to any academic subject and in everyday life.

Aside from learning about the human body in class, I enjoy hiking in the near by hills and mountains of New England. I also like fencing as a foil, playing computer games, reading and watching a myriad of show and movies.
