About Sean

Hi! My name is Sean D and I'm a Rutgers State University graduate with a BA in English. I've been teaching English and ESL for the past 6 years. I specialize in grammar, conversation, writing, reading, public speaking, fiction writing, and essay writing. Teaching has always been a passion of mine because I enjoy seeing students grow into great English speakers and writers. Many students who come to me for tutoring are international students, and I love seeing people from different parts of the world learning English for the first time and becoming proficient at it. I always try to find what English level a student is at and begin teaching him/her from that level. This is important to me because every student's speaking, reading, and writing levels are different, and so every student must be seen as an individual learner.

So if you want to learn English I can help you!

If you already know English I can still help you improve!

Also, if you would like to contact me about scheduling lessons, or just any questions about tutoring, you can message me here on WyzAnt. Thank you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

BA in English. Private tutored for 6 years and work for the English Language Center in the Boston Common.

Music Production

I've been doing music production for the best 3-4 years and audio engineering. I can make samples as well as mix vocals with harmonies. I use programs such as logic pro x and pro tools to make a clear fresh sound.

Reading

Have taught reading in public and private schools. To name a few, Edison Middle School, Brighton High School, Jackson/Mann, The Green School of Hollywood.

Songwriting

I have taught songwriting for the past two years now privately and for Susan Cattaneo, a runner of songwriting clinics, workshops, and shows for people trying to learn the art of music. I have also taught drum and percussion lessons privately and music theory.

Study Skills

I have been working with students for study skills for over 6 years, teaching both private and public school. I have taught the Green School of Hollywood where students had to prepare to take standardized tests, as well as mid and final exams. I have also worked at the English Language Center in Boston, and from there have also taught privately to get students prepared for their TOEFL and english speaking exams.

Tennis

I am an experienced tennis player and have taught over 6 years. I have taught ages ranging from 4-Adult, practicing different styles of forehand and backhands, as well as teaching the fundamentals of serves and attacking serves. I have taught many group lessons and also teach privately.

TOEFL

I have taught TOEFL for the past six years. I have taught at the English Language Center in the Boston Common and privately.

Writing

I have been teaching English/ESL for the past six years. With my students we have worked on expository writing, fiction and non-fiction writing, sentence structure, and grammar. When I tutor, I usually give my students a writing prompt and then go over what they have written in detail. Then, I have my students write the given prompt over for homework because I believe repetition in writing is key to success.

He is the best

Sean was great! He was caring, professional, and taught me in great detail with care and attention. He was very good at explaining things and when I had a problem, he listened to me, which is something I can’t say for every teacher. He helped me make my writing and my English speaking better which is something I was having trouble with. Sean also gave me work where I felt like I was improving and
