I am a full-time high school math and science teacher who does a little tutoring on the side for fun. Because I have limited time, I only help students tackle challenging courses such as AP and IB courses. I love tutoring Physics, Chemistry, Calculus, Precalculus, and Geometry.

I have been teaching and tutoring high school math and science for more than fifteen years. I teach at a private school, where all of my teaching is done in one-on-one sessions. This allows me to individualize the instruction and to adapt to the learning styles and needs of each student. During the summers, I teach Geometry for a youth center.

I have a BS in Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a year of graduate work in Cognitive Psychology at Carnegie-Mellon University, and a teaching credential from Seattle University.

I generally tutor between 5:00 and 7:00 pm, one or two evenings a week. I also occasionally tutor on the weekends. Because I commute by bicycle, I hold my tutoring sessions close to my commute route: I meet at the libraries in Bothell, Kenmore, or Lake Forest Park or the Barnes and Noble in Woodinville.

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.

Geometry

I love teaching Geometry. I teach Geometry as if it were a science class, since Geometry is the science of space. We do experiments and look for patterns. (This is the inductive part of science.) Once we find a pattern, we explore it a bit, seeing if it always works. Can we find any exceptions to our pattern? If we can't find any exceptions, then we have pretty good evidence that it is "true," but this isn't proof. For proof, we need to find an explanation, using logic. (This is the deductive part of science.)

I make heavy use of the computer program Geometers Sketchpad for carrying out our experiments during tutoring sessions. I recommend that you get it for your child to help them on their homework. You can rent it for $10 per year or purchase it for $35. It is worth it!

During the summers, I teach a course on Geometry Through Art at a summer camp for gifted middle schoolers. We learn about perspective drawing, symmetry, tesselations, and fractals.

Very helpful! — This is the first time my son has used a tutor, and he wasn't sure what to expect. But, after his meeting with Andrew, he seemed more at ease about the process. Andrew was on time and kind. Also, according to my son, Andrew was able to provide a lot of helpful tools to help prep him for his upcoming test. We look forward for working with him in the future! ...
