About Sean


Bio

I completed my Master of Science in Physiology at Georgetown University after earning a Bachelor of Science at the University of Michigan. Throughout schooling, I've also had extensive research experience in the areas of MRI (brain-imaging) and Drosophila (fruit flies!). In particular, the research projects examined the emotional regulation of PTSD (including the effects of mindfulness based stress reduction), thermoregulation in relation to pain modulation, and the neurometabolite profile...

I completed my Master of Science in Physiology at Georgetown University after earning a Bachelor of Science at the University of Michigan. Throughout schooling, I've also had extensive research experience in the areas of MRI (brain-imaging) and Drosophila (fruit flies!). In particular, the research projects examined the emotional regulation of PTSD (including the effects of mindfulness based stress reduction), thermoregulation in relation to pain modulation, and the neurometabolite profile of traumatic brain injuries.

My interests, however, are broader than pure science. I've been a private, one-on-one test prep and academic tutor for over 10 years, including being a reading and math tutor for underserved children and an academic support specialist for teens. Michiganian midwest raised me for a ripe age before sending me to Washington, D.C. When not taking standardized tests himself for pure fun, I'm bicycling around the city, jamming on the piano, eating spicy food, or soaking up Internet culture.

I feel that standardized tests measure exactly one thing: how good one is at that particular standardized test. Never does a test actually measure intelligence or aptitude. Hence, preparation and familiarity with one’s foe (the dastardly test) is the key to defeating it. I will urge students to practice, practice, practice, but I’ll also teach them a few tricks along the way to make the experience less excruciating!

I am all about effective laziness, meaning working smarter and not harder. This is what is most rewarded on standardized testing, as the time incessantly wisps away from problem to problem. As a child, I would do math problems as a hobby, and it's greatly rewarding to be able to pass on math tricks to an earnest student.

I used to be the guy that would always point out spelling and grammar mistakes just to spite people. Thankfully, I only do that some of the time now.

Feel free to ask me any questions about standardized tests, college application essays, whether robots are humans, and etc. at any time! I'll respond to emails by the end of the day.
