About Sean

I have perfect scores on the GRE Quantitative & Verbal Reasoning sections (170's), the SAT Math & Reading Sections (800's), and the SAT Math II Subject Test (800).
I also have 5's on the AP BC Calculus Exam and both Physics C exams (Mechanics and Electricity & Magnetism). I can help you with test prep or to work on your foundational math skills. I am a math nerd and former high school Mathlete who has competed in everything from MathCounts to the AIME.
During high school I attended Phillips Academy Andover and Phillips Exeter Academy, consistently ranked as two of the top private high schools in the USA. There I had the opportunity to study with some truly amazing teachers including Zuming Feng (the coach of the United States International Mathematics Olympiad Team) and Donald Barry (Massachusetts Mathematics Hall of Fame). For college I went to Yale University, where I took both undergraduate and graduate level courses, taking everything from Reading Poetry Theologically at the Divinity School to Behavioral Perspectives on Management at the business school. I also taught a summer course in Cognitive Science to gifted and talented 8th grade students in New Haven.
I have worked with kids and adults of all ages, from leading acting workshops for 5-year olds to running a computer workshop for homeless adults to guiding college freshmen on backpacking trips.
At Yale I studied nonverbal communication for several semesters as well as taking public speaking and performing nationally and internationally as a spoken word poet. So let me know if you need help with school or business presentations or with creative performance!
Last, but not least, I would love to help you work on your poetry or creative writing.
Shoot me a message and let’s meet up for a trial lesson! Or if you want to play some basketball or ultimate Frisbee…. No charge .

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.

Business

While a student at Yale University, I took several courses at the Yale School of Management: Behavioral Perspectives on Management, Interpersonal Dynamics, and Behavioral Decision Making I. In addition, I managed a student grill in college. I have also studied nonverbal communication with Professor Marianne LaFrance.

Calculus

Calculus is perhaps my favorite subject to tutor. I first took calculus as a sophomore in high school, when I scored a perfect 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam. The next year I took multivariable calculus, including a semester with USA IMO Math Coach Zuming Feng. I frequently tutor OU students in calculus, including Business Calculus I and Business Calculus II.

GRE

In summer of 2014 I scored a perfect 340 on the GRE-- 170/170 on the Quantitative Section and 170/170 on the Verbal Reasoning section. (I also scored a 5 out of 6 on the Analytical Writing Section). Since then I have tutored several students on the GRE on the quantitative, verbal reasoning, and analytical writing sections.

Logic

I took First Order Logic at Yale University and received an A in the course. I also have taken many mathematical courses which require logical reasoning. I also studied human decision-making which involves understanding rationality and logic as opposed to intuitive judgments. Thank you!

Public Speaking

I am an award-winning Spoken Word poet and performer who has performed and run workshops from Alaska to Greece. I took Speechmaking in high school and the renowned Oratory and Statecraft with Charles Hill at Yale University. I served as a Senior Presenter with the Yale Admissions Office, giving hour long information sessions to as many as 200 people.

Study Skills

As a test taker, I have done extremely well, scoring a perfect 340 on the GRE. In high school I got a 2320 on the SAT. I had a 3.7 GPA at Yale University as well.
