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

Biostatistics

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.

Chess

Since a very young age, I have been an avid board game player. I have studied and practiced formal strategy for chess.

Discrete Math

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.

Economics

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.

Genetics

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.

Nutrition

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.

Organic Chemistry

In college, I took the Honors Organic Chemistry sequence. Since then, I've also taught and tutored college-level students in Organic Chemistry.

Pharmacology

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.

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.
