Florida Atlantic University (Master's)
I provide customized, professional tutoring experiences in a very relaxed, fun environment. Learning doesn't have to be a bad experience. I know how to make it fun and easy to learn!
Everyone learns differently. Why settle for a cookie cutter learning experience?
My focus is on developing customized, fun tutoring experiences that match the learning style of each student. I rotate through various teaching methods to understand how the student learns. During this process I am actually studying the student's mind, while he/she is studying their material. I pick up on certain patterns that indicate how well they're retaining the new information. This process allows me to develop the most effective learning experience for each individual student. I also introduce humor/fun into the session as much as possible. From my experience this keeps the student interested and able to focus during the entire session.
I graduated with a Master's Degree in Economics from Florida Atlantic University in 2012 and I'm currently working as an Adjunct Economics Professor at Broward College.
In addition to my graduate degree, I also have an undergraduate degree in finance and 2 years work experience with two very well-known wealth management firms. I can work with students who need help in the areas of Macro/Micro Economics and Math.
I look forward to working with you guys/girls!

Sean was great and very patient. I learned more from him in 2 hours than from my professor in 2 months! He made everything seem so simple and had a way of giving great examples! My statistics class has been very frustrating and when I left our first tutoring session today I felt great for the first time about this class! Because of Sean I feel like I will be able to end the semester that started out as a nightmare instead as the next step in my dream come true of completing my master's degree!
Thanks Ashley. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to our next session.
Great teacher if anyone is looking for help in Econ look no further than Sean. He does a good job breaking down basics to helping with advanced econ.
Sean made this difficult subject much easier for me to understand. He helped me in person and over the phone when I just needed clarification. He also critiqued my completed assignment and provided insight on ways to improve. I really benefited from his tutoring and highly recommend him.
I am a grad student and Sean assisted me with regression analysis and linear programming. These concepts are not the easiest to understand; however, Sean's manner of explanation allowed me to fully understand and apply them as required. He is patient and thorough, and will use different ways to make sure you fully understand the information. He is a great tutor, and I highly recommend him.
Sean is a good tutor. He was very patient and explained the statistical concepts I needed to know.
I would certainly recommend him to my friends and family. Thanks, Sean!
My son used Sean for micro economics (university class). When I asked him about the survey, he said - a 5 - because he was 'really' good.
Knowledgeable and patient. The tutor clearly explained in details all the concepts . Clarified the area of confusion I had about the topic studied. His very effective teaching method and great personality made the learning experience very pleasant. Greatly recommended.
Sean is a great tutor! We had our first lesson today and he was extremely helpful. He was patient and knowledgeable about the subject. I am looking forward to working with him in the future.
I can honestly recommend Sean to anyone who is willing to learn.
I was a bit intimidated with the statistical portion of my dissertation as it has been over 12 years since I had my statistics class. Although I had two courses using SPSS my mind drew a blank when I looked at it again. Sean was very helpful and patient. He showed me how to set up SPSS as well as export data. He then reviewed with me the statistical analysis I was going to cover. Believe it or not much of it came back to me due to Sean's excellent presentation skills. I am no longer intimidated by what I have to do. Sean is an excellent teacher and I give him my highest recommendation.
I met with Sean D. for the second time. I found him to be very helpful, patient and consistent. Sean is definitely a wonderful teacher. He explained and clarified the material in a way that was easily understood. I will continue to use Sean as my tutor.
Helped me to accomplish what my goals for the session were. He provided related knowledge that was useful toward achieving my goals.
Thanks Josh. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to our future sessions.
Sean was well prepared when we met, which made our first session very productive.
I am looking forward to future sessions with Sean.
Thanks Glenn! It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to our future sessions as well.
Sean D. is great at explaining probability and statistics. In just one session, I understood the subject and was not intimidated anymore. I would highly recommend him to anyone. His honesty and level of commitment reflect in my understanding of the subject and my enjoyment in doing the exercises. I need to mention that he was kind enough to provide me extras materials like excels spreadsheet formulas, videos with down-to-earth explanations on statistics and probability. The best part of my experience so far is that he was actually teaching me and was constantly reinforcing the fundamentals with informative examples at each session. Highly Recommended. Excellent tutor. Jesus bless.
Thank you Kokou. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to our future sessions. Great student to work with!
Sean is a great tutor. He started with the basics in our initial meeting, giving e pointers to remember. He then went over homework with me and emailed me study notes to make my study sessions at home better. I highly recommend Sean. Thank you.
Thank you Sophia. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to our future sessions.
Sean is a great tutor. He explains things very clearly, has a lot of patience, and his teaching method is very effective. I understood everything we covered, and thanks to him, I'm not afraid of finance anymore. Highly recommended.
Thank you Alejandro. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to our future sessions.
I needed a tutor for my son and found Sean D. Sean answered me quickly and was able to set up a secession with my son. He explained Statistic with ease and calmness, my son was comfortable and was able to understand statistic better. I am happy with his work and we will be calling him soon again. Thank you Sean hope see you soon.
Thank you Arlene. It was a pleasure working with your son. I'm sure he will do very well in this course.
Sean is an excellent tutor. He is very patient and really knows his stuff. He is tutoring my wife on Microsoft Office and in my wife's words, after one one hour session she feels "empowered" on Excel. Way to go Sean!
Thank you Jeff. It was a pleasure working with you and Karen and I look forward to our next session!
Sean can explain complex material in a very understandable and simple way. He is very detailed-oriented. He provides a lot of resources and makes sure that you understand the lesson.
Thank you Sharon. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to our upcoming session.
Amazing tutor. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient, on time for our appointment and very easy to understand. Statistics is a very frustrating subject to understand but he knows the material like the back of his hand.If you are looking for a tutor, look no further than Sean! Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you Madison. It was a pleasure working with you.
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.
Algebra is taught very poorly in schools and it's frustrating for students to grasp some of the concepts. I'm able to explain the concepts in many different ways so we can find the best way for you to learn it.
During my graduate level coursework in economics we used algebra heavily. I have practice questions available that we can work through to perfect your algebra skills.
I have worked for two of the top wealth management firms in country, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and Merrill Lynch. I've created numerous internet based businesses, including my tutoring business here at WyzAnt, a successful investment fund, and a professional web design company.
I have a deep understanding of econometric models and methods. In my graduate studies I have taken Advanced Econometrics and Time Series Analysis courses in addition to undergraduate intermediate level econometrics.
Currently I am co-authoring an econometrics paper with Dr. Ky Hyang Yuhn of Florida Atlantic University. The paper examines the relationship between increased activity in futures market s and volatility in the spot market. The Vix index, a measure of implicit volatility, is used as a proxy for volatility.
I am also working individually on a second paper titled, “Testing for Cointegration in select Exchange Traded Funds and Futures Contracts”. In this paper we put the efficient market hypothesis to the test as we seek to profit through the use of pairs trading. Pairs trading is essentially simultaneously trading two closely related assets. If it can be proven that the two time series are cointegrated, that is to say they share a common long term path, then we can trade the assets when these assets stray some level away from their paths. In this paper we detail how to test a time series for stationarity. If the series is not stationary we demonstrate how to take the first difference of a data set to transform it to a stationary series. To test for cointegration we regress one of the level series on the other level series and store the residuals using common statistical software packages such as Stata or R. Then we test this series for stationarity. If stationarity of the error series exists than cointegration is present between the two assets series. Now that we have confirmed cointegration is present we can trade the two assets in pairs by shorting the outperforming asset and buying the underperforming asset. Over time this strategy could allow an investor to make “extra returns” which would discount the efficient market hypothesis. I can be of assistance to those who need help in numerous areas of econometrics including hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, time series analysis, ARIMA, GARCH, VAR, heteroscdasticity, autocorrelation, ACF, PACF, logit, Probit, STATA.
I am a huge fan of Austrian Economic theory which is not focused on a great deal in public universities. The Austrian Theory places a great deal of emphasis on the "Structure of Production". The structure of production refers to "what" we are actually producing in our economy. "What" we produce is much more important than "how much" we produce. This is the key to economic prosperity.
I am very familiar with all of the major theories in economics including:
I have a Master's Degree in Economics from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL.
Look forward to working with you guys,
I run successful internet based companies. I can teach you whatever you would like to learn.
I've played golf for roughly 15 years. I maintain a 3 handicap and play most of my golf at West Palm Beach Golf Course. I am familiar with the stack and tilt method and have incorporated many of the principles of this method in my swing. Giving golf lessons is enjoyable for me. I love watching a new player start to enjoy the game and develop a passion for playing. I can help with all aspects of golf including driving, iron play, short game, putting, course management and the psychology of golf. Much of this game is mental in nature and working on this aspect can greatly lower scores.
I am very familiar with Excel and many of its useful features. I've used Excel in many applications including:
Preparing financial reports for previous employers
Utilizing all of the statistical features for school reports in the area of quantitative methods in business
Preparing very professional graphs and tables for presentations
I can help with all areas of Excel and I look forward to working with you guys
Microsoft Word is an extremely useful word processor that has many attractive uses. Using Word we can create letters to send to friends, businesses, and others. We can use Word to create very professional resumes. We can create a presentation to show to creditors, potential clients, etc.
I am extremely knowledgeable with the many features of Microsoft Word. I would be happy to work with you to improve you skills in this area.
Look forward to working with you!
I have a master's degree in economics. Math is used heavily in this area.
I am very familiar with the SAT test and the type of questions present on the test. The test is comprised of Geometry, Trigonometry and Algebra questions. I am able to relate problems to things you are familiar with which helps memory retention. I also have practice questions available for my clients.
One important key to remember with multiple choice questions on the SAT test is that 1 point is added to the test taker's score for each correct answer, while only 1/4 of 1 point is deducted for an incorrect answer. Knowing this fact we create a strategy to only answer those questions where we are able to eliminate at least one incorrect answer. This is statistically the best way to approach the exam.
I will guide, assist, and give you insight into what you need to know to get a very high grade. However, practice is the key. The effort you put forth determines how well you will score.
I look forward to working with you!
I have used STATA extensively in my econometrics studies. We used STATA to form regressions and obtain coefficient estimates and standard errors used for testing statistical significance of given variables. I have experience using STATA for ANOVA, GARCH and ARIMA modeling, LOGIT, PROBIT, maximum likelihood, stationarity tests, cointegration, heteroscedasticity, autocorrelation, least squares regression, p values, etc. Many of my research papers including those that I am working towards publishing, include statistical analysis performed through STATA.
I have a masters degree in economics. We use statistics heavily in this area.
In my opinion, professors do not present the material in an effective and easy to understand manner. I can and will do this for you.
I am very familiar with hypothesis testing,t tables, z tables, comparing means, difference in two means, comparing proportions, central limit theory, inferential statistics and other areas.
Excel can be used to greatly simplify the problems you are working on. I can show you how to leverage Excel to your benefit and get a great grade.
I look forward to working with you guys. Cheers.
I work with the site builder VistaPrint to build custom designed websites for clients. I have built websites from scratch for my golf instruction business. My websites come equipped with credit card processing solutions, embedded videos, Facebook pages, site activity monitors and more! The site activity monitor is a wonderful tool to allow you to actually see where your site is being viewed, how much time people are spending on your site, demographics and other useful features.
In addition to building the website I can also assist you with internet advertising to promote your products and/or services. Using Google Adwords, Facebook and Youtube we can create target specific advertisements that will reach your audience in a very effective way.
