My name is Andy, and I love math. I hold a BS and MS from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In high school, I competed in various prestigious math and science competitions. I have gotten 800s in SAT math I and II.

Learn from the best! I am patient and have great ability to make difficult concepts easy to understand. Over the years I have developed various techniques on how to solve problems very quickly and accurately. When looking at a problem, there may be multiple ways to solve the problem. I help my students to properly analyze problems and choose the best method for solving them efficiently and accurately.

I can diagnose problem areas quickly and help students get to where they need to be. By carefully observing how my students solve problems, I uncover their weaknesses if any. Once I know their problem areas, I make sure they understand the concepts and provide them extra practice until they are comfortable with them.

I have over 20 years of solid experience tutoring pre-algebra, algebra I and II, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus for middle school and high school students. I also specialize in SAT/ACT math prep.

If you are ever dissatisfied with my tutoring, you don't need to pay! I am confident that you will find my services very valuable.

I will guarantee results!

Finite Math

I have lots of experience tutoring from prealgebra to calculus. Depending on the curriculum, Finite Math lies somewhere between between Algebra II, Probability, and Precalculus/Math Analysis. I have plenty of experience teaching those topics.
