Shaun grew up all over the United States including Virginia, South Carolina, Idaho, Tennessee, and Washington DC. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Professional and Technical Communication from Rochester Institute of Technology, and a Masters degree in Education from University of Massachusetts Amherst.
In 2014 Shaun relocated to Istanbul, Turkey along with his Turkish-born wife and worked as a tutor, college counselor, and education consultant before joining A-List. Prior to coming to Turkey, he worked for ten years in university administration in the United States. At Duke University, Shaun served as the Dean of Students for Duke TIP, an enrichment program that offered an intensive academic experience for over 5,000 gifted adolescents at a dozen colleges and universities across the country.
Istanbul is an exciting place for educational services, and Shaun is excited to help serve A-List’s students and clients in Istanbul by managing this location’s operations and providing exceptional tutoring.
I think A-List is a great organization. My tutor was positive and tailored the material to my learning style. She made learning each subject fun and presented new topics in an engaging fashion. Thank you so much to A-List for helping me achieve my personal best!
A-List gave me more than just practice tests and test-taking tips, though these were invaluable. My tutor connected with me on a personal level and helped me understand that I was capable of getting the score I wanted. Suddenly, I viewed my test-taking experience as a challenge, not a burden. I walked into my ACT with the confidence that I knew exactly how to conquer every aspect of the test.”

Both my children had an amazing experience with A-List! Steadily, she worked hard to improve her test scores. Taking the practice tests allowed her to gain confidence and learn to manage her time during the tests. Then a college advisor helped her write her college essays. She was an amazing guide who helped Phoebe focus and streamline her supplements and essays. Now she will be attending her dream college, Rice University, School of Architecture!
