About Andrew

In the San Jose area, I am offering tutoring for general chemistry; undergraduate and high school. I am also a web developer offering tutoring for intro to Ruby, the programming language.

My education:
- Masters degree in chemical engineering, Texas A&M University
- Bachelors in chemistry with a biology minor, UC Santa Cruz

I am:
- An experienced tutor. My specialty has been chemistry for over 4 years.
- Enthusiastic about teaching and helping students improve.
- A tutor who understands the importance of conceptual understanding of the material.

I improve scores consistently. Success rates: 93% of students experienced grade improvement; 83% of failing to passing; and 57% failing to acing course or acing subsequent exams.*

I will be more than happy to provide references from past students upon request.

*Among long-term students (+2 months) of weekly sessions.

Ruby:

Self studying coding is hard. As a professional web developer, I offer insight and perspective on the fundamentals of algorithmic thinking and basic computer science. I offer a structured environment to help your grow your programming skills.

I prefer to do one-on-one tutoring, because it's far more effective, but group rates can be discussed.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Ruby

I have training in web development and have extensive experience in Ruby and JavaScript. I solve data structure/algorithms in Ruby, and have built an entire full stack web app through the use of my fundamentals of Ruby (PostgreSQL, Rails, CSS/HTML, React.js).

I know multiple languages and many of the underlying principles behind high-level ruby methods. Both of these give me much more perspective on the concept of OOP.
