About Sean

As a young student I always struggled to keep my head above water in school. That was until I started receiving weekly tutoring for math and reading. One-on-one tutoring allows the student to learn at their pace and learn in a way that best suits their needs. After years of being tutored, I know the effect a great teacher has on their student’s ability to be successful. I am one of the those success stories.

I have been tutoring/teaching science since my first year in college where I was hired by UCF’s Student Academic Resource Center (SARC). Now, I am teaching AP chemistry, honors chemistry, and physical science for OCPS. During my first year teaching AP chem, I quadrupled the passing-rate and set a school record! This year, I was nominated for "Teacher of the Year".

I look forward to working with you or your child and creating another success story.

Warm regards,

Sean

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Excellent Homeschool Partner — I am a homeschool Mom, and I'm looking for someone to help me teach high school chemistry to my daughter. I met with Sean to discuss the curriculum he uses, his background and how his students perform, and how we could adapt his program to the homeschool environment and my daughter's needs. I was so impressed by his knowledge, demeanor, and flexibility. I would totally recommend him as a potent ...
