University of Texas, Dallas (Biochemistry)
I have many years of experience as a tutor, working at various universities, companies, and even privately. I have been working with WyzAnt nearly three years now. I provide tutoring in subjects ranging from elementary math to calculus, earth science to chemistry, grammar to essay writing, and foreign languages like French and Spanish. I specialize in tutoring math and science. I am equally as helpful in language studies. I have a great grasp of English, having spent many years as an ESL instructor. I am fluent in Spanish and conversational in French. I am being inundated by more and more requests for test prep, including SAT, ACT, GRE, and GED. I have experience with all of these and others, and I am currently working to prepare some students for at least a couple of these.
I recently finished my studies at the University of Texas at Dallas, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. I live, along with my wife and 7-year-old daughter, in McKinney, Texas. My wife is a Tennis Pro coaching many handfuls of students both privately and in groups. I have traveled with my family quite a bit, both in the United States and abroad. I have visited nearly every state in the United States, except distant states like Hawaii and Alaska. I even lived a few years with my family in Mexico. My siblings and I had a great opportunity to see much of the world. My wife is from abroad, too - Cape Town, South Africa. We met here in Texas, but we went to Cape Town to be married. We lived there for some time, until shortly after our daughter was born. The sights in that part of Africa are amazing.
In my free time, I enjoy either picking up my guitar or sitting down at the piano, though I am definitely better with the guitar. Between work, school, and family, those times do not come frequently. But I enjoy what I do, especially having the satisfaction of helping others achieve success in academics. My method is geared towards understanding of the material, rather than just rote completion of homework. This is, as the story goes, like "teaching the man to fish." While it may sound cliché, this goes a long way in helping students to achieve true success in their studies.

Drew is a fantastic tutor who is amazing at just about all subjects. By this I mean instead of specializing in just one, he has many mastered subjects and tutors many subjects really well, a trait I have only found in one other tutor in 10 years. He is flexible, patient and accommodating to my son's crazy schedule. My son really likes him and relates very well to him, which again is another great trait to have if you are going to establish a relationship with a high school boy that does not really want to study. We are hoping to keep him as a tutor till my son graduates (2 more years) because I am sure with Drew's help, my son will do very well in his PreAP and AP high school courses. So glad that we stumbled upon him. He always responds quickly and tries to accommodate wherever and whenever he can in addition to our regular sessions. He's a life saver and a very nice and kind person as well! Tutors like Drew are hard to come by!!! I give him a 10 on a scale of 1-5!!!!
Drew has now worked with my daughter Peyton three times and has completely figured her out.
Her weaknesses and her strengths regarding her abilities to study and complete her school work.
I have paid for 6 hours of testing and Drew was able to come up with the same information on Peyton during his time with her. Really pumped about Peyton's first 100 on Algebra homework this year!
Peyton is a student that needs lots of structure and multiple modes of learning. Drew only allows
music as a reward. If Peyton will work 50 minutes without conversations or music she can listen to music or watch something for 10 minutes then back to work. Thank you for all your help DREW!!!
Drew is very easy to talk to, explains difficult subjects well and relates to our son as a student. Our son is enjoying his classes and we can see his confidence in Math and Physics improving. They communicate ahead of time on upcoming subjects so that Drew is always well prepared to get as much accomplished as possible during their lesson. We are very glad we decided to hire Drew as his tutor.
Drew is amazing! He has the right words, attitude, and knows how to relate to students to help them achieve their goals. We are very blessed to have found him and plan to keep him and send him off to college with my son!
Thank you, Drew!
Drew takes time to understand how your child learns and is able to communicate in a way they understand. He is very busy, so it can be hard to get on his schedule. But it is worth working out.
Drew helped our son get over some of the barriers that were preventing him from getting good ACT scores. He was able to quickly isolate the specific areas that they needed to work on after the first session or so. Drew was always professional and very personable. Our son is now a freshman at LSU.
Drew tutored my high school aged daughter in both Chemistry and Geometry. When he started working with her she was failing both subjects. She had missed several weeks of school in the fall (due to illness) and was lacking in foundational information. Drew worked with her on making up past tests as well as the current work leading up to end of year finals. She went from a grade of 63% to an 89% in Geometry and from a 50% to 80% in Chemistry!!! Drew really went above and beyond in many areas to help her make such big advances in such a short time frame (approximately 7 weeks). He was able to help her understand many difficult concepts that she hadn't been able to grasp before and apply them on tests and quizzes for herself. Drew was very easy to get a hold of anytime I needed to reach him regarding scheduling and was always available if my daughter had a question she needed him to help with in between sessions. I would highly recommend Drew to anyone looking for a tutor, and we will be hiring him again in the future
Drew was a great tutor. I have a very busy schedule and he always made my schedule work with his. He was always available to help me with problems I had, even if it meant texting him a picture of a math problem. I needed help in calculus at a college level and Drew was very knowledgeable when it came to each of the subcategories in the book. After having Drew as a tutor for a semester, I would highly suggest him if you are looking for a tutor that is dedicated to helping you grasp a better understanding and becoming a better student.
Drew is providing prep for the upcoming AP Chem exam. He keeps things focused and on task. Flexible with scheduling too.
Drew seems to be doing a good job with trying to manage 3 kids at one time! He had just 1 for this last session and seemed to make a lot of progress. Overall, it seems to be going well!
Great tutor, explains each step. Polite and well educated. Will use you again. Thank you wonderful he can be helpful with more than one subject.
My son needed a Geometry tutor and we found Drew. We had already used one earlier in the year, but he didn't work out as he and my son didn't "connect". Months went by and I decided to try again. My son actually asked me when Drew left, "when is he coming back"? That was a big surprise as my son is anti school and anti tutor. We used him to try and pass Geometry. I believe when we started with Drew, my son's grade was very low. He just wasn't getting it. By the end of the semester which was just a month away, my son's grades improved so much. My son absolutely couldn't have done that well without him. Drew is patient and kind and he really knows his stuff. I would love to use him again and not just math, but also Spanish or any other subject Drew tutors. He's that good. Thank you so much Drew!
Drew really is an amazing tutor. My son was struggling in a particular subject and really didn't understand the material. With Drew's tutoring my son was able to understand the material and quickly. Drew worked extremely hard and was very dedicated to make sure my son understood it all. If my son was unsure on something Drew was prompt to explain it. My son was able to have great success on the outcome of that class in a short amount of time. We have had many tutors thru the years with 3 children and we've never had a tutor as good as Drew. He is extremely dedicated to his tutoring, works for the benefit of the student and makes sure they understand it. An amazing tutor and I highly recommend him.
Drew was very reliable and my son liked and respected him very much. We have not yet received his test scores, but my son felt comfortable after taking his AP, SAT subject and ACT tests. I am sure Drew played a large part in my son having confidence with his results.
I contacted Drew literally last minute tonight as I had a midnight deadline for my business calculus class. Drew was the only tutor I contacted (out of many) who was willing to me on such short notice-- on a SATURDAY NIGHT... The day before Easter! Wow! If he was working for a corporation that would be considered impeccable customer service. Although he said he didn't feel like he was 100% helpful, I disagree! I did much better than I would have without help, and we had to rush through the problems because of the time crunch. I will definitely be working with Drew again in the future, as I can tell he truly wants me go understand the material and grasp each concept, and how they all connect. Had we had more time tonight I am confident he would have been able to walk me through every concept and I would have made an A! Thanks for being willing to help me Drew! Next time I won't wait till the last minute!!
This was our first time using Wyzant. Drew was very responsive to emails, punctual, and pleasant. My son said Drew really helped him to better understand chemistry. We are grateful to Drew for all his help.
Just a couple of meetings with Drew and we have seen immediate Positive results for my sons Pre-AP Chemistry class. He is very knowledgeable, patient and professional. We will continue to work with Drew thru Senior year.
Drew expects alot from his students, he will ask lots of questions to help them learn, and to make sure they understand the lesson.
Drew has been great with my Son so far. He has been very patient and my Son has a lot of respect for him. That being said, I think my Son is going to really know his Precal when he is done. Thank you Drew
My daughter had been struggling with Geometry until she started receiving tutoring from Drew. Since that time her grades have improved greatly, her confidence level is increasing and she is less stressed over Geometry. I wish I would have found Drew sooner!!!
Drew has tutored my son several times over the past weeks and I see the confidence returning to my son. My son has AP classes which he barely attended in the first grading period due to an illness in our family; since working with Drew he has almost reached his goal of completing all missed work and staying current in this period. Drew relates well to my son and does not talk down to him. We will continue to utilize Drew throughout the year. Drew is more than we had hoped to find.
I'm getting better at mathematics, he's helping me with my math portion. I know I'm going to pass my Ged test this November.
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.
I have many years experience in this field. I have taught at various institutions and universities, both in Mexico and the United States. I am bilingual, fluent in both English and Spanish. I have taught both, English to Spanish-speaking individuals, and Spanish to English-speaking individuals. It would be easier to simply submit my resume, if necessary. Let me know if further details are necessary.
