About Sean

My focus is on English and writing, but I have tutored students of all ages in math, science, ESL, and SAT/test-specific subjects. My main concern is strengthening your knowledge and ability to the point where you no longer need tutoring by fostering healthy study habits and creating a long term education plan. I am a friendly and extremely patient tutor who truly enjoys working with his students.

I received my B.A. in Literature from UC Santa Cruz and my Masters in Creative Writing from Oregon State University. Along the way I have tutored independently as well as through tutoring programs like INTO-OSU, an immersion program for ESL students looking to apply to Oregon State, and Pleasanton Tutoring, a service providing tutoring for all ages in a wide variety of subjects.

My guiding philosophy toward education is: Practice, practice, practice. And patience. You have to believe you are capable of learning in order to achieve the success you want.

Please contact me and we can chat about whether we would be a good fit. I would be very happy to meet you and discuss your education needs.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I attended Catholic schools from Kindergarten through High School. I also studied literature in college, including the Old and New Testaments. I have done my own independent research on the Torah as well.
