About Sean

Hello,
My Name is Sean, and I recently graduated from Georgetown University with a major in Classical Studies, a minor in Math, and having completed all of the premed coursework. Obviously, I have a lot of interests academically. However, being able to share this knowledge and help people understand their world a little better is something of which I never tire.

As for my experience, I have been tutoring for 8 years now. I started in high school at St. Joseph's Preparatory School in Philadelphia, tutoring grade school students at the adjoining school. I then went on to tutor my sisters and some of her friends, during the summer, in order to move ahead a year in math (which I was successful in doing). I then went to Georgetown and continued tutoring as a form of service to men who were in jail on short term sentences. The program was designed to help them acquire their GED so when they left jail they would be better suited to integrate into society. This was very educational for me as well because I encountered many older students who had less background knowledge, and it was a challenge. However, I am proud to say that 90% of my students passed their GED in math on the first try. After this I started another private tutoring firm and tutored grade school and high school students in Georgetown in Math, Latin, English, and various Sciences.

I have worked with students of all ages and backgrounds so I feel confident in being able to teach you or your child in a personally tailored, fun, educational environment. I can manage special considerations regarding schedules, and other concerns. So, I hope to hear from you soon, so that we may begin on our academic journey.

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.

Classics

I have been studying Latin for nine years at this point. I was a Classics major focusing on Latin at Georgetown University where I received honors. I have read everything from epic, to poetry, to prose and others including epigraphical studies and numismatics.
I have visited Rome and studied the major archaeological sites in Rome and Ostia Antiqua, Rome's port city in the Imperial Period.
I have covered all levels of learning from basic vocabulary memorization to in depth analysis of texts and cultural artifacts.
I would say that I specialize in "Roman Religion" and especially the rise of Christianity, and the ensuing effects it had on the existing religious sphere.
I also thoroughly enjoy anything about the Late Republic and Early Imperial Periods and have led discussions on this at a few seminars.
I have tutored adults interested in learning a skill they always wanted to, and students just trying to make it through their mandatory Latin requirement. I know that this can be fun, or if that is too much of a stretch for you, that it can be less stressful and difficult than it is now, if you let me help. So, please, contact me today and let's get started.

Study Skills

I worked as an SAT prep student for 3 years while in Georgetown. I worked in a volunteer group that helped underprivileged students receive training in the SAT. I worked in all sections equally well. I also moved on to tutor 2 other students in Washington, DC, privately, for their SAT prep as well.

Additionally, I attended a top 20 university where the development of a plan to study efficiently is paramount. I have developed some methods for organizing tasks and ideas. I have also worked several jobs based on selling task management, especially for Apple and The British Embassy which helped me see what types of other apps were available for managing school or any organization really.
