About Andrea

Are you looking for an experienced tutor in reading comprehension, analysis, essay writing, study skills, World/Global history, European history, US history, and/or US government to help you prepare for the upcoming Regents, Common Core, and/or AP exams? Would you like customized instruction as you review?

For the past six years, I have helped both struggling and more successful students at the Regents, AP, and college levels to ace their history and ELA cumulative exams. Most of my students have earned Regents scores in the 90s. I also have a very successful track record for AP clients who followed my study method. I draw upon a wide variety of materials, customized to fit student needs.

During the weekday, I work as an English and history teacher at a small private school. I hold a BA in comparative history from Georgetown, a MA in social studies education from Teachers College at Columbia U., and current teaching certification. Before becoming a teacher, I worked for the U.S. Congress, U. Cambridge's publishing division, and as a research analyst at William and Mary.

I can come to your home or most convenient library, or you can meet with me in Stamford, as my building has a nice conference room. I am available most weekdays after 5pm.

I would love to help you maximize your success on these important exams! Thank you for considering my services!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

American History

I am experienced in tutoring 7th/8th grade Social Studies, NYS Regents (11th grade) U.S. History, AP U.S. History, and IB History of the Americas.

Not only did I earn a top score on my AP and take a few American History classes as a Georgetown undergraduate, my graduate coursework at Columbia included a comprehensive review of American History and instruction specifically on teaching American History.

Common Core

This is my second year tutoring students for the new NYS Common Core English Regents. My students did quite well on short notice last year during the initial offering.

English

Looking for a trained and experienced literacy (reading and writing) instructor at the 9-12 level?

This will be my third year preparing students for the ELA portions of the ACT and SAT, as well as my second year preparing students for the new Common Core grade 11 English exam and for the GRE.

If your student is taking AP English Literature, please consider my services as well. An avid reader, I aced the AP English Literature exam and continued to study literature from a variety of cultures in college. I have also tutored students taking the AP English Language exam.

Before becoming a tutor, I retook the SAT twice, scoring in the high 700s in both Critical Reading and Writing. All of my students' test scores have risen under my tutelage.

European History

Are you looking for help with AP European History, Western Civ. I & II at college, or a European History elective? Look no further! As the recipient of a 5 on the AP and the writer of a college thesis on 19th century Central Europe, I have extensive knowledge to draw upon while helping you develop even better study skills, ace your essays, and make sense of all those details.

Government & Politics

I have experience tutoring U.S. Government and teaching International Relations and Comparative Government courses. As a former Congressional intern, Congressional employee, and staff member at a public policy organization, I am quite familiar with how our own government works! In addition, my college minor in International Affairs included coursework on the U.S. government, on democratization efforts around the world, on political philosophy, and on several other forms of government, both past and present. While at Columbia, I also took a course on the US Constitution.

Political Science

I have experience tutoring U.S. Government and teaching International Relations and Comparative Government courses. As a former Congressional intern, Congressional employee, and staff member at a public policy organization, I am quite familiar with how our own government works! In addition, my college minor in International Affairs included coursework on the U.S. government, on democratization efforts around the world, on political philosophy, and on several other forms of government, both past and present. While a graduate history and education student at Columbia, I also took a course on the US Constitution.

Regents

This year I am focusing on two Regents courses: Global History & Geography and English (both Comprehensive English and the new Common Core English). For the past five years, my tutoring students have all done extremely well on their Global Regents exams, even those with special challenges. I am currently teaching English myself during the school day, as well as tutoring students in reading comprehension and writing.

Social Studies

My teaching certification is in social studies for grades 5-12. I have both classroom teaching and tutoring experience throughout the Regents and AP curricula. Whether are struggling with terms recall, making connections between pieces of information, reading comprehension, research projects, or writing, I can assist!

Please note that this year I am focusing on Global / World I and II.

Study Skills

One of the most important tasks when providing tutoring is to identify the best study techniques for a particular student. Not only do I have experience helping Regents and AP students to improve their social studies study skills and raise their grades, during graduate school I was trained in a variety of successful methods to use when learning and trying to remember historical information. This training and experience enables me to help each of my students identify their most beneficial study technique(s).

World History

This is my sixth year tutoring 9th and 10th grade students in Regents Global History (I & II) and AP World History (I & II). I can also provide assistance with the introductory college World History survey. Students who have followed my directions have done extremely well on their Regents and AP exams.

My own undergraduate and graduate coursework included several World History courses, allowing me to draw upon extensive subject knowledge while helping you to develop better study skills, make sense of all the details, and ace your essays.

Writing

I can help you to write better history essays (DBQ, FRQ, thematic, CCOT, Comparative, etc.); research, format, and analyze data for research papers (history, government, or psychology); and write school admissions statements. My research, analysis, and writing skills were honed at Georgetown and Columbia, plus in a few extra graduate courses at William & Mary.
