About Sean


Bio

I spent over two years at University of California, Irvine studying Biology, and over four years at Sonoma State University, where I continued studying biology until I found the English Department and switched majors. I completed the entire curriculum for my English degree in 2 years.

I spent over two years at University of California, Irvine studying Biology, and over four years at Sonoma State University, where I continued studying biology until I found the English Department and switched majors. I completed the entire curriculum for my English degree in 2 years.

I have taken and passed the CBEST ( California Basic Educational Skills Test ) which certifies me to substitute teach up to the high school level in public schools in California and Oregon.

I possess a passion for my area of interest, and it transfers to my teaching style: I try to inspire the same passion ( or at least appreciation of the subject ) in my students. Educated in a system that believed in a "well-rounded student", I have been exposed to a wide variety of subjects and ideas. As such, I also try to continue that same approach to life and education: with a passion for learning, any and every subject can be fascinating, inspiring,... and fun!

I am patient, calm and very adaptive in my approach - each student is different. If I have to explain something 100 different ways until they understand, I will. Everyone has the power in their mind to learn any subject. I focus on attentiveness and application of this power to show each student the range of their capacity.

Personally, I have moved here to Colorado from California recently, and am a stay-at-home father to 3 girls and a boy ranging from 1 year-old to 14. My educational background, along with my experience with my own children in school I believe make me an excellent candidate for a tutoring position.

Professionally, I was a manager for almost 15 years. As such, I was charged with the training and education of my staff, and at times, my clients. Classes, seminars, one-on-one training sessions were all part of my curriculum. Over the years, I developed a style that mixed intensity with light humor to capture my audience's attention and engage their imagination. It was a regular comment after my classes how interesting I could make a 'boring' subject appear.
