All of Andrew’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Andrew’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 1

Algebra can seem intimidating at first, but with the right tools students can learn to love math. I try breaking down the concepts, and connecting them to the real world. Ive worked at a learning center for the last year, and most of my math students just needed a personalized approach to algebra.

Biology

I majored in Biology at UCSC, graduating with a 3.61 GPA this last December. I've tutored for over 2 years now for both high school and college biology courses. For Biology I usually work on memorizing strategies and rewording concepts to make them more accessible.

Chemistry

I majored in Biology at UCSC, graduating with a 3.61 GPA this last December. I've tutored for over 2 years now for both high school and college chemistry courses. When I took AP chemistry in high school I got a 5, and I got A's in all of my college chemistry and organic chemistry courses. Equations can seem intimidating at first, but I've found by showing students some organization methods, and linking them to chemistry's fundamentals, students quickly improve.

Organic Chemistry

I got an A in both 108a and 108b, my organic chemistry courses at UCSC, as well as in the labs. I've tutored a couple of UCSC students in those courses as well as a SDSU student in their organic chemistry class. Although it is a very abstract class, its applications are essential to understanding the form and function of the fundamental molecules of life, ie proteins, dna, rna, carbohydrates.

Most students who struggle in this class merely need to be more efficient with the time they spend memorizing the reactions, I show them how I systematically memorize lists as well as the logic behind synthesis( multiple step) reactions.

Physics

As someone who has a family full of physicists, I had plenty of people to explain the basics. They showed me how to make physics a game, as well as how to avoid common misunderstandings. In college I not only enjoyed these courses, I found myself helping many of my classmates! When I worked at a tutoring center, I found that most of my students were for physics, and thus developed many techniques to explain and show how physics works in the real world.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
