What Students Say...

"Very entertaining and educational!"

John Alton

Taking Shawn's Zoom class was awesome! He kept me engaged even after working the night before, and I was very tired. But the pace, and teaching flow is what made it possible for me to hand on! I give him seven starts with five being the highest ... very entertaining and educational!

I like how well Shawn knows his stuff and explains very thoroughly.
