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.

Andy has been a fantastic tutor for our daughter in every way. She says that he makes subjects that she does not understand from class lectures seem easy to understand in a fraction of the time they spend on it in class. He is easy to reach, responsive, and makes scheduling appointments easy, and has been very helpful if an appointment is needed on short notice before a test.
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!
Subject was IB HL Math. There were many missed school days due to sports activities leading to a panic about not understanding the material. Andrew proved to have a mastery on the subject on short notice, adept at explaining everything, and a calm presentation that was confidence building. Andrew is easy to talk to and gets the job done amazingly efficiently. He seems to love math which makes the sessions enjoyable. I couldn't have foreseen such a positive experience. Don't delay, call Andrew.
I love the fact that Andrew can help my son in so many subjects. Andrew understands my son and can tutor him so he can feel confident and enjoys going to his tutor lesson. Andrew takes the time and explains so he understands the material and when my son leaves the lesson he can take what he learned and do it on his own.
We like to set up a tutor session just before a big test and Andrew always works him into his schedule. Andrew is a very competent and trustworthy person. Thanks for all you do for my son.
He answered all the questions I had very clearly and did not mind repeating his explanations whenever they were needed.
My son, a high school junior, began taking running start classes during the fall quarter. He struggled with college level calculus and asked for tutor assistance. Wyzant presented us with several possible tutors from which to choose. We settled on Andrew. Andrew was very patient and capable, and soon had my son on track with restored confidence. As the quarter is nearing an end, my son is currently holding an "A" in the class, and looks forward to taking additional advanced level math classes. Thank you, Andrew, for you assistance!
We saw Andrew only once. He did a great job with explaining details. Andrew is patient and respectful to the student. My son was satisfied and felt more confident.
Andrew was very good at explaining concepts in a way that my daughter could understand and apply to her calculus test prep. He helped her raise a half grade in a short time!
Andrew is thoughtful and very helpful. He came to the session yesterday with new ideas on how I might learn better. He is patient and quick to say something in a different way if I dont understand the first time. He is always on time, and we make very good use of our 60 minute sessions.
Andrew is very courteous, patient, and makes sure you understand the material before you move on. He is very knowledgeable in many areas of mathematics, and if something he is not very familiar with comes up, he is honest to say that he will double-check and let me know next time so that I get the right answer. Also very easy to contact and responds quickly. Overall he was very useful and I would definitely recommend his tutoring.
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 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.
Andrew C. passed a background check on 9/30/12. The check was ordered by another user through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to Andrew, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
