Boston College: TIMSS & PIRLS International Study Group

Paul T. Connolly Director of Publications and Graphics

The TIMSS & PIRLS International Study Center at Boston College creates global assessments in Mathematics, Science and Reading at the fourth, eighth and twelfth grade. Over 60 countries participate in the study, which is conducted in 4-year cycles.

Sean Quinn was hired as a Web Developer and worked onsite (35 hours a week) at the study center from June 2015 up to the end of January 2016. Initially hired to aid in the front-end development of a proposed interactive mathematics and science assessment, Sean also assisted us in creating new pages for our Web site. His coding and design skills are spot on, and his ability to toggle back and forth between several assignments was essential to help us meet various deadlines.

Sean has a terrific work ethic, and brings to the table a technical toolbox that includes HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Bootstrap, PHP, and MySQL. Besides writing code for our interactive tests and creating Web pages, Sean also helped us greatly by testing and checking over our existing electronic reading assessment prior to its release. Sean fit in immediately with every one on our staff, and has been a pleasure to collaborate with. He has great communication skills and his humor and good nature were a welcome addition to the office. Regretfully, it is only due to budgetary restraints in our grant funding that I am not been able to keep Sean here full time. I would happily work with Sean again in the future, and recommend him highly for any project or position you may have.

This letter is written highly recommending Sean Quinn as a website developer. I have been using him as my website developer and administrator for my restaurant’s webpage for the last 8 months and am very pleased with the work and commitment he has exhibited from the beginning. Sean always gets the job done, be it updating our online menu or fixing unforeseen glitches, in a timely and professional manner. He is always prompt in both his responses to my questions and to issues needing attention.

I was introduced to Sean after placing a craigslist ad searching for a website developer. After days of sifting through the many responses I received I came across Sean’s resume, noticed he was locally based and had loads of experience and extended him an invitation to interview for the job. Not only was he personable and easy to talk with but his work both past and present allowed me the very easy decision to offer him the job. As a business owner, constantly worrying about the well being of your website is something that can occasionally be overlooked, fortunately for my business needs I know I am in good hands with Sean Quinn. He has developed a site that I am very happy with and one that is easily navigated by my customers.

I highly recommend Sean Quinn for any website work or maintenance. He has proven to be an asset to my company because of his ability to always get the job done and his attention to detail. He cares about his clients and their satisfaction with the work he does. It is invaluable to have him as a part of my online team.
