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

Algebra 1

I have worked with algebra students of middle school age through college. I focus on emphasizing the underlying logic of the concepts and building on prior knowledge while incorporating new material. Some of my areas of greatest experience are: properties of exponents and roots, writing and graphing linear equations and inequalities, probabilities, interpretation of graphs and data tables, and properties of functions.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is one of the subjects I tutor most frequently. Some of the topics I have experience with include: conic sections, systems of linear equations and inequalities, matrix operations, factoring and graphing polynomial equations, and exponential and logarithmic equations.

GRE

I took the general GRE in 2010, scoring 790/800 on quantitative reasoning and 740/800 on verbal reasoning. Many of my GRE students have had backgrounds in the humanities, so have not taken math classes for several years. By working through previous GRE problems together, students can practice the specific rules of algebra, arithmetic, and geometry as they are asked about on the test, and become more confident and efficient when working through similar problems on their own.

Physics

Physics is another subject I tutor frequently and was my focus as an undergraduate and graduate student (at Washington University in St Louis and the University of Washington - Seattle, respectively). I have assistant-taught introductory college level physics classes for four years. These classes have included: Newtonian mechanics, electromagnetism, wave physics and optics, and both lab-based and discussion-based sections for each of these topics. In total, I have worked with over 400 physics students, so I am familiar with addressing many common conceptual misunderstandings and calculation difficulties.

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.
