About Sean

Hello! I've been a tutor since my time in high school where I tutored math. I have helped friends pass their AP statistics exams and college algebra as well, but was forced to stop while pursuing my doctorate in Singapore. I'm back for an extended stay in Florida and to help out my parents and thought I would tutor while I'm home.

My dissertation is in behavioral decision making and neuroscience where most of what I do is computer-based mathematical modeling. I'm much more interested in the human side, and took several teaching courses while a doctoral student. I like having a discourse about learning and exchanging information between both teacher and student.

I try reduce the stress many students feel with math and abstract computations and make it tolerable if not enjoyable.

Mu Alpha Theta Society president and Math tutor in high school. Scored 5 out of 5 on AP statistics, calculus, mechanical physics. College coursework in econometrics, statistics, and decision theory. Self taught with Bayesian probability theory and other advanced quantitative analytics.

Studied genetics and neuroscience as undergraduate as well as economics. I took several courses and laboratory modules on genetics and cell signaling.

I try to make learning enjoyable, useful, and easy to understand. As many jobs, skills, and even recreational past times become digitized and driven by computer algorithms, I feel it's massively important to get a good base of core concept understanding of how the world, and this includes the math that drives facebook likes, pokemonGo egg-hatching, and more, works.
