About Sean

To whom it may concern,

I specialize in preparation for standardized tests. I've developed systems for each test that I've taken, and can quickly update them accordingly with the latest available material. My scores for each test (GMAT - 790, MCAT - 41, SAT - 2400, ACT - 36, SAT II Biology M - 800, SAT II American History - 800, SAT II Math Level 2 - 800, SAT II Chemistry - 800) speak for themselves and are the product of disciplined application of well designed study strategies. I can pass these strategies on to the student as well as use them to identify where the most gains can be achieved.

In addition, I graduated Rice with a 4.0 in Bioengineering, so I am well versed to teach high school or college level math and science. In fact, I taught my classmates for years in both high school and university, including a paid position as a TA for the introductory MATLAB course for 7 semesters. I also have some experience tutoring with Varsity Tutors. Finally, unlike most students who cram for tests and forget the material later, I have a very good memory and am quite capable of teaching things learned years ago.

Because of my high rate, it is significantly more efficient to do an initial consult, then have me develop and present a study plan and strategy. Afterwards, the student ideally does the majority of the work on their own, and I analyze the results to provide targeted feedback and explanations. This methodology economizes time and money for all parties involved. If you or your child is willing to put in the hard work, I can almost guarantee substantial improvement. I am looking forward to working with you!

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.

Differential Equations

I graduated from Rice University with a B.S. in Bioengineering. One of the classes required was Differential Equations, and I got an A. Furthermore, I was required to utilize both ordinary and partial differential equations in much of my higher level coursework.

Electrical Engineering

I graduated from Rice University with a B.S. in Bioengineering. One of the classes required was Introduction to Electrical Engineering, and I got an A. Furthermore, I was required to utilize these concepts further in Bioinstrumentation.

Mechanical Engineering

I graduated from Rice University with a B.S. in Bioengineering and graduated with a 4.0. As part of the degree, I took Introduction to Mechanical Engineering, in which I got an A. I further applied those concepts in Biomechanics, where I also got an A.
