About Andrew


Bio

My passion in life is helping others reach heights they never thought possible. Even the smartest and brightest among us need help reaching the next level sometimes. While attending college many of my peers would ask “How do you consistently score higher than everyone else?” Honestly, it is nearly impossible to simply replicate one approach to studying or doing anything as each individual is unique. One of my strongest assets is my ability to personalize advice that allow me to find the best...

My passion in life is helping others reach heights they never thought possible. Even the smartest and brightest among us need help reaching the next level sometimes. While attending college many of my peers would ask “How do you consistently score higher than everyone else?” Honestly, it is nearly impossible to simply replicate one approach to studying or doing anything as each individual is unique. One of my strongest assets is my ability to personalize advice that allow me to find the best solution for them.

I have tutored high school and college students in a variety of subjects for over fifteen years. Mostly focusing on essay construction, reading comprehension, and critical thinking.

If you need help in:

A)understanding difficult or complicated texts,
B)analyzing historical events (anything history or social studies related),
C)learning to write/construct an academic or research oriented essay,

Then I am the guy for you!

I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley (CAL) as a history major with honors (Cum Laude) and distinction. CAL’s history program is very unique in that it requires students to attend seminars where they learn top level skills in researching and critical evaluation of source material while also writing a 30-50 page thesis. During these sessions students learn to read books and articles in rapid fashion and distill their import to accomplish massive amounts of research in shorter periods of time. I personally went through 60+ books and over 200 articles in less than six months to write my thesis. In that thesis I focused on the German Fascination with Native Americans in the late 1800s into the 1960’s.

I am continuing this research at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) as a Ph.D. student. My ultimate goal is to write a series of books and to become a professor.

Made everything easy and understandable. Took his time and went over the material until I got it. Also had a great sense of humor. Made me feel much more relaxed.
