I am a currently a fourth year medical student at the Alabama College of Osteopathic medicine. I graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara in 2015 with a degree in Biopsychology and an emphasis on learning and cognitive bias. I have over 15 years of teaching experience in both academia and athletics combined. Most recently I acquired formal training from the STATMED program and completed all written board examinations (Step: 249, Comlex: 626) as a prerequisite for teaching USMLE/COMLEX material.

History
Teaching, for me, was the most exciting way to deeply learn about a subject matter. It is for that reason that I always looked for opportunities to teach when mastering a subject. I began teaching as early as 14 years old, teaching Strategy/Tactics at the world renown Barnes Tennis Education Center. Almost 20 years later, I still continue that same motivation to teach.

Although content and practice is crucial in passing the exam, or beating your opponent on the courts, my experience has proven to me that struggling test takers share a similar pattern of mistakes. These learning biases are difficult for their professors, classmates, and even other tutors catch. As a biopsychology major with an interest in education, I am increasingly aware of these learning biases. When tutoring my fellow classmates at my school's mentorship program, I noticed that struggling test takers fall into these classic biases. They tend to have an answer locked down before fully reading the passage. Others outright eliminate answers that they do not know. While others simply cannot structure their time and can not complete the questions in the time allotted. I look at these issues under a magnifying glass, giving my students the resources to track their mistakes and progress through graphics and fillable spreadsheets. This increases my students motivation as they see improvement and their ability to self-coach as they begin to understand their maladaptive patterns. In addition to teaching the content, I aim to e

Excellent Investment

This is my 5th session with Sean. He is an excellent and very very knowledgeable tutor who patiently explains the information. He continues to present the information in a manner that I can understand and in a way that it 'sticks.' He is soo good. The test taking strategies that he throws in there are really helping me toward my goals. I look forward to more sessions and to achieving my goals with Sean's help. If I could give him 10 stars I would!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amazing first session!

Sean went above and beyond my expectations! He explained the material beautifully. He knew his material inside-out, and he helped me categorize and organize the information in a simple and easy way. I am very much looking forward to my future tutoring sessions with him. Highly recommend!
