About Sean


Bio

Hello, my name is Sean G. Thank you for visiting my profile here at Wyzant.com!

I am a seasoned tutor with over five years of combined teaching and tutoring experience. I have tutored 400+ hours on Wyzant.

I first began tutoring back in high school, when one of my friends asked me to help him to prepare for the SAT. I helped him to raise his SAT score by 200+ points. I am a life-long learner, and I enjoy teaching just as much as I do learning.

Hello, my name is Sean G. Thank you for visiting my profile here at Wyzant.com!

I am a seasoned tutor with over five years of combined teaching and tutoring experience. I have tutored 400+ hours on Wyzant.

I first began tutoring back in high school, when one of my friends asked me to help him to prepare for the SAT. I helped him to raise his SAT score by 200+ points. I am a life-long learner, and I enjoy teaching just as much as I do learning.

My first paid tutoring experience was working at the College of the Holy Cross Calculus Workshop. The workshop is a one-on-one setting where students can ask for help on their homework problems and practice in preparation for tests and quizzes. I worked at the workshop for two years, during my sophomore and junior years at Holy Cross. In 2014, I earned my B.A. in Philosophy from Holy Cross, graduating Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa.

I then continued on to study Philosophy at the Graduate Level at USF Tampa. During my graduate studies, I worked as a Graduate Assistant and later as a Graduate Student Instructor. As a Graduate Instructor, I taught two semesters of "Critical Thinking," for which I designed the course syllabus myself. In May of 2017, I earned my Master's Degree in Philosophy, graduating with a 3.95/4.0 GPA.

My educational ideals are Socratic; I believe that teaching is not just about conveying information, but rather it is about relating to the student in a meaningful way. I am an experienced tutor in a variety of areas including Math, English, Foreign Languages and Test Prep.

For Mathematics, I am available to tutor your student in Calculus, Algebra, and Arithmetic and in preparation for tests and quizzes.

For English, I am available to tutor essay writing and editing. I am also an experienced Test Prep tutor. I am very familiar with test-taking strategies. I have had success on the ACT, SAT, and GRE.

I am also passionate about foreign languages. Specifically, I am able to help with Spanish. I studied Spanish for four years during high school

Great Algebra II Tutor

My son was having difficulty with his Algebra II class so we sought the help of a tutor. He began working with Sean G. in the fall. My son went from resisting help to looking forward to his weekly sessions with Sean. He began to get more comfortable with the material and gained some confidence around math.

I am so glad we decided to seek out tutoring for him especially once the school closed due to COVID, he was able to continue learning the material with the help of Sean. Our son had a successful school year and am thankful for the help from Sean.
-Christine, Jacob's mother

Working with a tutor helped me in math. Sean was able to explain things to me better then I could learn in the classroom. He went more in depth with the concepts I was learning.
