As a teacher, he can effectively teach concepts in different ways to suit a student's needs. Further, he is capable of analyzing a student's level of understanding of the material and working with them on that level. Highly recommend! »

Recent College Graduate of Mathematics and Physics Looking to Help You Succeed

Methodology

I like to personalize my lessons to the individual. This of course, may be hard for group-settings, but I try my best to cater to each student's needs. I also believe active, hands-on problem solving is *key* to learning material.

Background

I am currently a Barista in Madison. I am merely taking a gap year or two, as I wanted to experience life outside of Academia for a bit before going on to graduate school. Despite being out of school for about a year, I still find myself attracted to the beauty of mathematical theories, especially the physical theories of the universe which are, inevitably, stated in mathematical terms.

Sean's resume

Curriculum Vitae - Sean Gallogly

Biographical Summary

Sean Gallogly is a recent graduate of the University Wisconsin-Madison with degrees in physics and applied-mathematics. His interests span not only the fields of his completed degrees, but those of chemistry, history, psychology, and philosophy as well. His ambitions are to work as a research assistant in a research lab or in the private sector in a computing-centered role to obtain further experience in the fields of mathematical-physics, mathematics, or computer science before attending graduate school. Sean would like to obtain his PhD in one of the above fields and one day become a professor, focusing on teaching just as much as research. In his free time Sean likes to read, write, take care of his plants, and experiment with various coffee brewing methods.
