I have taught physics and math for 10 years as a certified teacher in Pennsylvania. I have been awarded the 2008 Teacher Impact award by WGAL TV-8. I have practical experience working in the field of engineering. I am a swimming and water polo coach for age-group/high school teams.
I have four children (2 boys, 2 girls) between 8th and college right now. I am comfortable teaching all ranges of ages and abilities. Usually, students are just stumbling over an initial 'speed bump' that I work to help them get over. Once a problem gets off to a good start, the student is much more successful at concluding it by him/herself. I look to be a guide first. Understanding of the method to a problem's solution is the key. I have taught physics and math for 10 years as a certified teacher in Pennsylvania.

Sean is very knowledgeable and explains the formulas so they are easy to understand and grasp. I am an older student, and have been away from algebra for a long time, but he is patient and takes his time. My grades have improved and I have received 100's on my last two exams.
Has intense desire to teach. Explains difficult problems very well. Very knowledgeable and easy to understand. Highly recommend Sean as a tutor.
Mr. B has extensive teaching experience, and it shows. He is extremely knowledgeable and makes the subject matter (pre-calculus in this case) interesting to my child.
I am grateful for his enthusiasm and skill in helping my child learn needed material.
Sean has been working with my son for several months. My son has consistently improved.
I would recommend Sean as a tutor.
Had a great lesson. We had been working on a very tough section of my calc book and I was a little worried about my test. Mr. B helped me by reviewing the troubling sections and helping me through my study sheet. I was very confident come test day and I scored very well on my test. Thank you Mr. B.
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.
I am PA certified in Physics and Math. I have taken two college courses in astronomy. I own my own telescope, and track amateur radio satellites as a hobby. I have used astronomy labs in my physics course. I traveled to Aricebo in Puerto Rico with a NASA grant. I took a graduate course at the Green Bank Telescope (100 m radio dish) in West Virginia.
I am PA Certified in grades 7-12 math and physics. I have taught AP BC Calculus II in high school. I have a BS in Electrical Engineering where Calculus was used regularly. I then have a MAT Physics. The physics courses used calculus all the time. I know where all the topics in calculus actually get used.
I am PA Certified in grades 7-12 math and physics. I achieved within the top 15% nationwide score on my Praxis exam. I have taught all levels of math in high school, from Algebra 1 through Calculus. Geometry is a fun subject with multidimensional thinking required.
I have taught algebra 1 through calculus in high school. I am keenly aware of the initial difficulties students have coming into algebra for the first time. I can help you master the skills you need to succeed in your prealgebra course, that will then pave the way for success in formal algebra and beyond.
I have 10 years of teaching 9th-12th grade in math and science. I regularly helped students after school. Often they could not get over a simple 'speed bump' that I could help them see how their notes or book had the key. I encourage students to keep good summary sheets prior to a test. These combine to study for a final. And these are of great use in the 'next class' for which their current class is a prerequisite.
I have been actively teaching and coaching swimming for 35 years - since I got my Water Safety Instructor certificate when I was 16. I've coached club through high school varsity level swimming. I swam at the University of Pittsburgh, and continue to swim Masters currently. I have attended Eastern States Swim Clinic multiple times, and have a vast repertoire of drills to help teach any age swimmer how to get better and enjoy this great lifetime sport even more.
I have been playing, coaching, and refereeing water polo for over 35 years. I currently referee PA high school level (PIAA) in addition to NCAA. I am an assistant coach annually at the US Naval Academy summer age-group water polo camp. I have coached teams at the US Junior Olympics, US Junior Nationals, and assistant to the US team for the North American championships vs Mexico and Canada. I'm sure your game will improve with more fundamental skill work that I could provide.
