Andrew studied the basic and social sciences, searching for answers to some of life's biggest questions, including the role of nutrition in human health, the basis for human decision-making, and how to win in Monopoly. Born and raised in the Washington, D.C., area, he earned a B.A. in the Biological Sciences at the University of Chicago and graduated from Georgetown University with an M.S. in Physiology and Biophysics. He has taught math and science students at the high school, undergraduate, and graduate levels, including adult students. His tutoring career began in 2010 when he signed on with PrepMatters to offer academic support tutoring and standardized test preparation assistance for high school students in the Washington, D.C., area. As a published co-author, he has developed research projects at the National Institutes of Health and the University of Chicago Department of Economics. He is currently a medical student developing a research project in the field of social neuroscience. Whether you're looking for a single consultation, ongoing academic support, or test-specific preparation, Andrew looks forward to working with you to establish a program of study that will help match your performance with your vision of success.
While earning a bachelor's degree in the Biological Sciences, I completed course work in methods of statistics, proof-based statistics, probability, systems modeling with differential equations, and ecological systems modeling at an advanced college level. My current doctoral degree program features the study and application of statistical methods while exploring questions in epidemiology, clinical trials, and population genetics. In addition, my research requires the utilization of numerous statistical tests and methods.
Since a very young age, I have been an avid board game player. I have studied and practiced formal strategy for chess.
I have completed advanced mathematics coursework, including relevant topics in algebra, geometry, combinatorics, finite calculus, probability theory, differential equations, game theory, and discrete analogues of continuous mathematics. The following relevant topics pertain to my research work: logic, graph theory, decision theory, utility theory, and social choice theory.
I have completed the intermediate economic analysis sequence at my alma mater, the University of Chicago. In addition, I have completed substantial quantitative coursework in mathematics and statistics, including advance calculus, differential equations, and probability.
In addition to advanced genetics coursework in college, I also studied medical genetics at the NIH Foundation for Advanced Education in Science. As a current medical student, I continue to study concepts, pathological manifestations, and population-level observations pertinent to human genetics.
In graduate school, I completed a course in human nutrition and, in medical school, understanding the biochemistry, physiology, and pathophysiology which pertain to nutrition is vital to my studies in medicine. I am also training for an Ironman 2013 event; among many others, mastering my own nutrition is a precondition for success in this race.
Pharmacology is an integral component in both my graduate studies in physiology and biophysics as well as doctoral studies in medicine. As a future physician, I have studied pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, receptor mechanics, signaling cascades, contra/indications, and physiologic effects of the full range of drugs for each organ system.
