but the alignment was completed 6 mnths ago with the rotation of tires. the shop told me it was because of the front wheel drive is powered on the front passenger side, i dont believe him
What TYPE of 'wear pattern' are you getting? Just inner or outer edge , both inner AND outer edge , center wears prematurely , 'cupping' on inner or outer edge? Are the tires the OEM size and type as recommended on door label?

Your main drive wheel is the right front. If you are heavy on the foot, you will wear the right front tire out significantly quicker than the left front.
