About Sean

I have taught high school and middle school math for over eight years in schools on Cape Cod. I have taught geometry, algebra and pre-algebra. I have tutored in other subjects including precalculus, Algebra 2, and elementary school 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 and 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 accessible records that shows how their children's grade is changing on a daily basis.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Math and Statistics, a second bachelor's degree in Politics and Sociology and a professional qualification in Accountancy. I have a Master's degree from Trinity College Dublin.

Since arriving on Cape Cod in 2005 I have taught Irish music and dance to adults at the Sandwich Community School, Barnstable Senior Center, and 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."

Excellent tutor!

My high school daughter needed an Algebra tutor. I emailed Sean, and he replied right away. We needed someone with a short notice, and he was very accommodating! 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
