Do you need help in math? I can help right now. My students are children, teens, adults, and elders, across nearly all demographics, including ESL. I bring an infectious enthusiasm for math, and I work hard to make math easy and comprehensible.

I will train you at your level to help you see math with fresh, new eyes. I will work with to understand what you do know, and what you don't. From there, I will explain how the words we use and the questions we ask can be translated into math exp...
Reviews
My son and his cousin have had two sessions with Sean thus far. His tutoring style is engaging, upbeat, and focuses on topics that the learners indicate are areas of difficulty. Sean is professional but not stuffy and very accommodating. Our family will continue working with Sean and I strongly recommend his services.

Sean is preparing my son for my upcoming SAT in Oct and helping Jonathan with his pre-calculus class. I believe Jonathan will do much better on the next SAT. Jonathan feels more prepared and confident. Sean is working so hard with my son to reach his dream of getting into a highly completive engineering college. Sean is a knowledgeable, patient and caring tutor. Especially in preparing Jonathan for the SAT and assistance with his pre-calculus class. Sean knows how to relay subject matter to children and teenagers at their capability in such a way that they understand what he is teaching with clarity. My son looks forward for the next tutoring session.

Sean is a patient and methodical tutor. His knowledge of Algebra 2 is excellent. My son got a lot out of the session. I would certainly recommend Sean to others and will use him in the future.
- Howard P. from Poughkeepsie, NY
Sean has been a real help in boosting my daughter's confidence in Algebra. He takes his time explaining concepts thoroughly to make sure she understands something before moving on. Prior to the tutoring sessions, she was panicking and worried that she would not catch up. Now she is feeling confident in her abilities and understanding of the subject. I highly recommend Sean as a tutor.

Sean did a great job tutoring me!! We went over my review packet for my upcoming math test, focusing on area under the curve and derivatives. He was very good and patient when I didn?t understand.
- Anna O. from Sammamish, WA
Sean is tutoring my 17 year old who has never liked math. She is actually understanding and beginning to realize that she can do this. Sean is excellent at presenting without talking down to her and stresses the positive and her taking responsibility for her education. I've used multiple tutors over the years and Sean is the best.

A real brain 'fry' today! Clarified types of transformations; great examples w/interactive applications. White boards will be useful for future.
- Kathy C. from Los Angeles, CA
Sean can help with any type of math. He's been able to answer all of my questions. He's also good at making you feel smart and like you can learn the subject, no matter how hard it is. Great tutor!!!
- Ingrid L. from Los Angeles, CA
Sean was absolutely EXCELLENT! He has an uncanny ability to turn difficult math concepts into something the average learner can understand. I highly recommend Sean to anyone that needs help with GMAT Quant., Geometry, Trig, and Calculus. He helped me get a great score on the GMAT Quant. and I am so grateful for his help.

I have had three classes with Sean and plan to take a few more. He is very professional and has so far been a life saver. I have struggled with excel for years and the one on one classes have helped me tremendously. As a professional in the business world, the refresher in math with the excel will be invaluable for any working environment.

Sean is a great tutor. He focuses on getting you to understand the material and the concepts behind them. He also teaches you tricks to do with specific problems. He puts in a lot of work, and will do extra work out side of the session. He is a great guy, fun to talk to and wants to help you learn the material and succeed.
- Jordan O. from Santa Monica, CA
Sean has all the criteria of a great math tutor, not only he is very knowledgeable of the subject matter, he has the skill to transfer his knowledge to his students as well. For example, if you do not like or understand certain way of solving a problem, he show you several other ways to solve it. In addition, he is very good at identifying your weaknesses, and by giving you light homeworks he is able to help you out with that situation. Moreover, he is very organized and do not rush through materials just for the sake of covering them. Instead, he is very patient and take his time in terms of teaching math concepts with the pace that is comfortable for the student. Finally, he is a compassionate person with a big heart, because he does everything he can to help out his students and is not stingy with time like many other tutors some of whom finish their sessions even 10 minutes early. I am making claim that he is a best math tutor that I ever had because I worked with five other tutors and none of them can come close to Sean in terms of being knowledgeable, compassionate, and most important of possessing the art of teaching math.

With Sean I only had 2 sessions because I had to drop the class but a great and clear tutor. Very understanding and efficient. Experienced in Calculus.
- Usman A. from Santa Monica, CA
Sean is very patient and I have confidence that my grandson will be successful. Sean is also removing my grandson's fear of math. Sean is a gifted tutor. My thank you's are extended to you.
- Julianne T. from Los Angeles, CA
My son is in the 7th grade and has been struggling with math. We have gone through many different tutors attempting to find the right fit. Since starting with Sean, my son has changed. He will now sit for 3 hours at a time to learn math. I can't believe it. I am so pleased with the change in his willingness to learn. He is gaining confidence daily. I especially like how they carry on conversatiins about life. I feel as though they are bonding therefore increasing my sons receptiveness to learning. Sean is the best.
- Alicia S. from Los Angeles, CA
Good with follow-up. Very proper. I like how even if the answer seems so obvious, he doesn't make you feel stupid. I understood more from the two hours I spent with him, than the 3-3hour sessions at UCLA. Will definitely keep using him till my quarter is over!
- Liza D. from Los Angeles, CA
Sean is a great tutor who you can trust and depend on to improve your skill in calculus. He gave my son a self confidence by solving a variety of problems in each section on the chapter. He still tutors my son to the end of his class in SMC and I'm sure he will tutor my daughter next year in pre calculus. He is kind, patient and generous.
- Hanna B. from Los Angeles, CA
Sean is on time, prepares for your study session prior so that everything is fresh in his mind. Is very nice but will push you to the next level and get you to take notes so that you have quality review material. He is patient and works through each problem with you as opposed to rushing through it. I highly recommend Sean.
- Geoffrey M. from Venice, CA
Sean is very clear in demonstrating the concepts and engages you in order to validate that you understand the information. He is definitely patient and quickly sees where you are at in your Algebra and Calculus knowledge. His confidence in you as a student is a positive factor and his professional experience backs up your trust in his opinion. I will be recommending Sean to my fellow classmates.
