About Sean

My first real experience tutoring English was at the American Language Institute, an English language education department of the International Office at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. In this position I helped college age ESL students, from beginner to advanced and countries ranging from Saudi Arabia to Japan. Alongside that I have participated in conversation partner programs set up through the school as well and made friends that would get together for language exchange.

While in Japan I did numerous volunteer programs teaching elementary and middle school age Japanese students beginner level English as well. Less formally, I have been helping ESL learners since my freshman year of college. This too is mostly undergraduate aged students, but I also frequently edit a Master student in English Literature's college essay. When someone has trouble with grammar, sometimes even native English speakers, they come to me for help. There is no task I cant take on!

I am passionate about helping students strive to be the absolute best they can be. I want to help you with all of your goals, as well. I am open to video lessons and am very flexible about everything. I am a laid-back and easy going teacher who just wants to help with you language learning goals!

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.

English

I have always had close relationships with members of the English community, and received high marks in all of my college level English courses. If I am unsure of something, I actively figure out the answer and the best way to explain it for the current student and the next. I have experience in editing everything up to Graduate studies essays.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native English speaker, who has spent the last 5 years helping learners of English with English in some capacity. I have tutored all four of the major areas of English (Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening) and while I don't have any formal training (yet), I am constantly working to make myself a better teacher.
I have worked everyone from elementary school students in Japan, to college level Saudi Arabian ESL students.
