About Sean

I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Mathematics and Statistics from London University. I also have a Bachelors and Masters degrees in Economic and Social Studies from Trinity College, Dublin. I graduated from the Dublin School of Business as a qualified Management Accountant and later was accepted as a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.
I have worked as a high school and middle school math teacher for almost twelve years on Cape Cod where I taught geometry, algebra and Pre-algebra. I have tutored students in Pre-calculus, Algebra 1 and 2, statistics, and elementary math.
My students have an excellent record in MCAS examinations. My most recent 7th grade students achieved the best results on Cape Cod: 73% achieved advanced or proficient status with a CPI score of 89.5.
In the classroom I am fully committed to every student and to the task of teaching in a way that gives my students the best opportunity to learn and perform well in their examinations. I use the most up to date internet based technology to give students access to teaching materials and support activities. Parents have access to these materials and to on-line records that shows how their children's grade is changing on a daily basis.
Since arriving on Cape Cod in 2005 I have taught Irish music, history and dance to adults at the Sandwich Community School, Barnstable Senior Center, Cotuit Center for the Arts, the Irish Cultural Center for New England, and the Sons of Erin in Yarmouth. In 2014 I was awarded the Thomas P McCann "Altruism Award" trophy by the Cape Cod St. Patrick's Day Committee for my "support and commitment to the Culture and Heritage of Ireland and its people."

My daughter was very happy about how well he explained everything. She had multiple papers that needed to be completed, and she didn't understand the concepts. Sean was very patient and extremely informative. She was not only able to c
