I started with Shannon doing English a year in advance, so I would never be behind at school. He helped me to develop strong English skills so that by the time I was in Year 12, I was extremely confident in writing cohesively and fluently. He always made sure I understood the task at hand and I was always well-prepared for my sacs. A very reliable tutor who makes it easy to reschedule classes when needed. Thank you Shannon!

Shannon greatly assisted with my preparation for the Year 12 English exam. I was required to complete a number of practise exams at home, to exam time limits, to ensure I was able to plan well for exam conditions. Shannon provided great instructions and exam hints and tips throughout the year. He was always encouraging and supportive. I highly recommend him as an English tutor. Thanks Shannon.

Shannon was kind enough to tutor our year 12 son in English. We found Shannon by means of a friends recommendation and within a short amount of time he managed to bring our sons results and confidence up in the lead up to final exams. Worth every cent. We are thrilled Shannon has agreed to tutor our year 11 son next year in math. Shannon's professionalism, logic, patience and hard working approach gets results. Forever grateful.

When we first met Shannon, he tested my daughter with quick fire Accounting questions to assess her knowledge. Immediately we knew he knows his Accounting being a CPA. In addition, his temperament and friendliness appeals to the teaching of this subject. Always supportive and instills confidence. End result was a 45 in Accounting which validates his knowledge, teaching and guidance. Highly recommended for VCE students.

Shannon is a knowledgeable, patient, supportive and encouraging tutor. His lessons are structured, he is introducing new concepts gradually. His fees are reasonable. Our daughter has learned a lot in the past few months but most importantly she feels more confident in her writing and maths skills. We are very happy with Shannon's teaching style and hope that he will continue supporting us in the future.

As a parent of a year 12 student who was basically abandoned by the government school teacher, the help that Shannon was able to provide was immeasurable. At a time when my daughter had lost interest in the subject, Shannon managed to restore her self belief and provide her with the knowledge to actually pass - versus certain failure otherwise. I have no hesitation in recommending Shannon to everyone. He is first rate.

Right from our initial lesson I was very impressed with his professiionalism, experience, wealth of knowledge and a down to earth style of teaching. For those parents out there that have kids that have no interest at school but you know he/she is an astute child but doesn't apply themselves. Shannon is the perfect tutor to ignite your child's ability to learn and stay focused. Without Shannon my son would not have completed year 12. For a kid who didn't want to go to a tutor he came out every lesson feeling positive and enthused about his future! Thank you Shannon for all the patience you had with my son and the positive impact you had on him. Vlenia

I found Shannon on the Tutor Finder website whilst looking for a local tutor for my daughter who was in Grade 5 at the time. From the outset, I have been thrilled with Shannon, and importantly, my daughter who had resisted previous tutoring, is likewise really happy to attend. Shannon has helped her enormously in Maths, and has helped stretch her in English. She recently applied for a very competitive select entry secondary school, and was accepted based on the results of an academic test. There were approximately 500 applications for 60 places, and I put her success in a large part down to Shannon, who has not only increased her skills, but also her confidence and her love of learning. I can highly recommend Shannon to all parents, for students of both genders and all ages.

Shannon has assisted me throughout this year and I am averaging an "a" grade average. He is very friendly and generously provides great depths of knowledge for texts and films that are being studied. Shannon is always on time, organised and has kept me far beyond well prepared for upcoming sacs and ultimately exams. I would reccomend Shannon to anyone who wishes to improve their grades whilst working with a great guy!

Shannon has been tutoring my son in Maths and English in the last six months. During the course of the hour, he has accommodated our requirements beyond our expectations as smart teaching techniques are applied to achieve the most effective outcomes. He possesses excellent communication skills to explain the subject in a simple and systematic manner and his patience makes any student comfortable in the subject and understand the content being taught. His excellent knowledge across a range of subjects is impressive and the ability to address the needs of the student reflects him as an outstanding teaching professional. Also, through his teaching, my son was successful in gaining entry into a selective school. He is a very enthusiastic teacher who displays genuine concern for the advancement of his student and it is my pleasure to recommend him to others.

Shannon has been tutoring my son in Maths for the last two years. Early in Year 9 it became obvious that my son would need some help with this subject. Now with Shannon's help it is one of his strongest subjects. He has gone from hiding his results to being quite proud of them. I hate to think where we would be without Shannon's help. Jack H

Choosing Shannon as my tutor for VCE Accounting and Economics was the best decision I made regarding these subjects. I have improved substantially in these subjects from last year where I was pretty much just passing, all thanks to Shannon. I highly recommend him as he is very knowledgeable, easy to understand and get along with. If you do not understand a certain topic, he will explain it thoroughly using various examples until you understand it. I believe that without his help, I would not have been able to go into my exams with confidence. Thanks Shannon:)

Shannon has been of excellent assistance for my daughter (grade 6) and she has now improved in all areas of her school work. Shannon has given my daughter the confidence she needed and this will give her a great start to year 7. He is very patient and copes well with a talkative girl. My daughter's one hour a week tutoring has made for a much better second half of the year. Thanks Shannon. Anne

We've contacted Shannon over 2 years ago, to help get our son through English VCE. I must say, Shannon's help was invaluable. His patience was endless and he really helped him so much. Our son has now successfully completed his year 12 VCE (and has 2 uni offers already) and we have to thank Shannon for this. He did go above and beyond his duties and always kept contact to see what the teachers feedback was at any given time. His knowledge is fantastic. He knows all the required tasks and essays, is always punctual and his passion for teaching is wonderful. So, if you or your child is struggling with English (my son could not even write an essay in year 10!), I can highly recommend Shannon. I can't imagine a better tutor. Again, Thank you Shannon!

Shannon is more than we could have hoped for our son. We contacted him at our wits end unable to find a suitable tutor on our side of town. Our son was failing English which was not an option given his desired career path. Shannon was upfront with us and our son from the start and did not paint a false glossy picture but rather a realistic outline of what was required and the work that would need to be done for our son to achieve his goals. Shannon taught our son the techniques and guided him to seek the correct information required. Shannon was able to teach our son how to think for himself and write his essays independently. Shannon also kept an eye on upcoming sacs and ensured our son was prepared well in advance for everything that was required of him throughout the curriculum. Within a few months our sons marks had already risen by 15%. Fast forward a year and a half later and today our son has just sat his exam. Despite a unexpected curve ball being thrown at the children in this exam he was able to cope and do better than he expected thanks to the thorough preparation. We can't thank Shannon enough for his assistance and would recommend him highly to anyone seeking a tutor for their child.

Shannon's dedication, patience and effective quality of teaching provided is first class.

Choosing Shannon as my tutor for English was the best decision I made regarding my education. I was never the strongest English student, however with the help of Shannon my marks improved immensely. Sometimes I had questions to ask outside the tuting lessons and Shannon was happy to answer them which goes to show how caring and helpful he is towards his students. At the start of the year I wasn't expecting a study score over 35, however, I was able to exceed the this and receive a 39 study score in English. I was honestly stoked and happy that my hard work payed off. I highly recommend Shannon as a tutor especially in English as he knows the content of most vce English books, If not will study them in his own and help you every step of the way.
