About Sean

I love working with students. I taught freshmen chemistry labs as a TA when I was a Ph.D. student at Virginia Tech. There were office hours where I helped students with their chemistry problems. I have worked in industry for some years since graduation, but I now figure that communicating chemistry knowledge and experience and helping students learn and grow will be my major career for the rest of my life.

I have a B.S. and M.S. in chemistry, and a Ph.D. in polymer science & engineering. I have taught chemistry lab classes in universities. I also have great verbal and written communication skills, and am known as an outstanding technical presenter. I am able to convey chemistry knowledge and findings in clear, concise language.

I am great with languages. I have native fluency with both English and Chinese, both in verbal and writing. I can communicate clearly in either language without having to relying on the other.

I am a great verbal communicator and write very high standard English. I have helped a number of fellow students and coworkers proofread and copy edit their letters and manuscripts.

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.

Chemistry

With an M.S. in chemistry and Ph.D. in polymer science and engineering, I am knowledgeable in all subjects of chemistry, particularly general chemistry, organic chemistry, and polymer chemistry. With several years of industry experience, I have a good understanding of not only the fundamentals of chemistry, but what they mean when it comes to real world applications.

I have a way of explaining complex, confusing chemistry principles in my unique clear, easy-to-understand language.
