About Sean

Need help with your essays, exams, or coursework? I am a writer, academic, librarian, and current PhD student with degrees in English literature and library science, and I'm looking to tutor motivated high school students and college undergraduates and assist with academic endeavors great and small. I can help with style, grammar, and rhetoric on essays on any subject in the humanities and social sciences - and I won't simply help you shape up any given essay, but teach you systematically how to become a better writer by helping you work on weaknesses, learn from mistakes, refine your existing strengths, drop bad habits (and acquire good ones), respond to criticism of your work from your instructors, and interact more thoroughly with the relevant material. I will do this in ways that are suited to your immediate and long-term academic needs, but since I believe the best work comes from genuine intellectual and personal engagement and expression, I will also work with you to develop methods of study and writing that will allow you to speak confidently in your own voice - rather than treating each assignment as a chore completed for the benefit of others. Part of this involves finding ways to manage workloads to reduce stress. I have worked with peers, family and friends in this manner for years and it has always been a mutually rewarding and successful experience.

In addition to working over drafts, I can help you improve your academic work from the earliest stages of research. I have years of advanced research experience and professional certification as a librarian. I can act as a personal reference librarian, guiding you to the sources that will allow you to make the strongest possible arguments and teaching you how to navigate the literature relevant to your field, regardless of your specialization. If your studies do overlap with my professional qualifications as a student of literature, I can help you work through difficult texts, thinkers, and topics, whether in preparation for exams (including the GRE subject test in literature) or for term papers and other more specialized work.
