Hello prospective students and parents, my name is Sean. I am twenty-three years old and a graduate of George Washington University. I have four years of experience in tutoring ranging in subjects from neuroscience, my original major, to English, as well as two years of experience specifically in teaching English as a Second Language. I also played a Division 1 sport in college, and have three years of experience coaching. I attended high school in St. Louis, Missouri, where I received a 35 on the ACT (36 on writing, 36 on reading, 36 on English, 35 on math, 32 on science), as well as a 2250 on the SAT (800 reading, 700 math, 750 on reading). I took AP examinations in American history, world history, psychology, U.S government and politics, English composition, English literature, and statistics, receiving 5's on each. In addition, I speak Japanese and am in the process of becoming a published writer.
With regards to pedagogy, I have tutored a wide variety of students ranging from a student struggling to become the first person in his family to graduate high school to students at Georgetown University. My teaching philosophy is focused largely around the principles of adaptation, as I believe the responsibility of the teacher or coach is to understand his student's skill-set, observe the way the student learns, and then adapt methodology as much as is required to achieve the desired results. Finally, I believe one of my greatest strengths as a teacher is the ability to evoke enthusiasm in my students, as I firmly believe learning devoid of genuine interest and enjoyment will achieve results far inferior to those in which they are present.
