About Andrew

I am an Engineer by training now doing a PhD at Caltech. I really enjoy communicating Science and Math, and have tutored many students from middle school to college level. I most commonly tutor algebra 1 and 2, calculus, physics, biology and French. The question I'm always asked by kids during the more mundane topics is "When am I ever going to use this?" So I always come equipped with relevant and (usually) entertaining examples of how math and science can be applied.

I can do test prep and make flash cards with the best of them, but if you or your child has ever wondered "How deep would I have to go into Jupiter before I floated?" or "Are there more grains of sand on Earth or more cells in your body?" then I am a tutor for you.

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.

Study Skills

I have completed an undergraduate degree in engineering science, and a masters degree in materials science, and I'm now pursuing a PhD in applied physics at Caltech. During my undergraduate and graduate work I've also worked as a tutor from middle school to college age. I have focused on AP test prep (specifically chemistry, math and physics) and helped 11 students gain study skills and perform well on their AP tests.

I have also worked with younger students (grades 6 to 8) across all subjects, and have encountered various learning styles and types of students. Some who are struggling and others who are skipping a grade and looking to get ahead. I've developed well rounded study habits that have helped every student I've worked with, and I'm excited to help more students. out.

Extremely knowledgeable, personable, & patient tutor — Andrew has started working with my 8th grade son on Precalculus. Andrew not only is very knowledgeable, but is patient, funny, & has a great personality. My son, when anxious about something new, tends to retreat into being goofy and aloof, but Andrew was great at drawing him out and keeping him engaged. He identified key concepts that were proving difficult, and was able to make up questions o ...
