About Sean

I first discovered my passion for teaching while pursuing my undergraduate degree at University of Colorado Boulder. In my last three semesters I was employed as a learning assistant, teaching a weekly recitation on weather and the atmosphere. I found it very rewarding to help students learn and become engaged in science.

I graduated with a B.S. in mechanical engineering, and in doing so I found a real appreciation for physics. I find it fascinating to know how things move and how the world works on this basic level. Before graduating I tutored several students in physics and statics outside of my regular teaching job.

In my day job now I am a professional pilot, putting Newton's laws to the test in a twin engine airplane above Los Angeles.

I think everyone knows physics intuitively, from catching a baseball to riding a bike. My goal is to take concepts and equations from the textbook and put them in terms of everyday life. In this way, all students can learn to understand and even enjoy doing physics.

I look forward to hearing from you.

He made the concepts click in my daughters head. We will be using him again. My daughter said he was more helpful than he even realized he was helping. We were able to meet up with him the same day as contacting him.
