About Andrew

My name is Andy, and I'm a graduate student studying biophysics at UCCS. I have experience tutoring algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics (algebra and calculus based), GMAT and MCAT preparation.

I scored a 1460 (out of 1600) on the SAT, a 750 on the GMAT, a 36 on the MCAT, and a 169 verbal/168 quantitative on the GRE, so if you need help preparing for a college, MBA, graduate school, or medical school admissions exam, I'm the guy for the job. I enjoy teaching, and I'm passionate about doing it well. If you need difficult science or math concepts explained to you in a simple, straightforward manner, please contact me.

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.


Limits and differentiation, integration, the fundamental theorem of calculus, Taylor and MacLaurin series, parametric curves, vector functions, partial differentiation, multiple integrals; if there is something that you are struggling to understand in calculus, I can help. This subject has a reputation for being difficult, but it can all make sense if it's explained the right way.


I have tutored both first and second semester general chemistry multiple times. I scored in the 99th percentile on the American Chemical Society's general chemistry comprehensive exam, and I can help you or your student attain the same level of competence in the subject. I explain general chemistry concepts in a way that makes the concepts seem coherent and self-reinforcing, minimizing the need to memorize.


I took the MCAT in January 2013, and I received a score of 36 (13 Physical Sciences, 12 Verbal Reasoning, 11 Biological Sciences). I have tutored MCAT prep before, and I am especially strong at teaching physics, general chemistry, and organic chemistry. The questions that appear on the MCAT are different than those that commonly appear in undergraduate courses, but I know the kinds of material and questions that the MCAT focuses on.

Organic Chemistry

I have tutored organic chemistry for many students, both on its own and as part of the curriculum for the MCAT. I am skilled at explaining the concepts and mechanisms in terms of electron transfer, so that students can reason through reactions even if they have not memorized them. I can help with stereochemistry, nomenclature, reactions, mechanisms, synthesis, IR spectroscopy, HNMR and CNMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and anything else covered in a standard two semester undergraduate organic chemistry sequence.


Physics is one of my favorite subjects to tutor. I have helped students with algebra and calculus based physics for several semesters now, and I would be delighted to help you or your student learn my step by step strategies for solving problems in kinematics, mechanics, energy, rotation, momentum, electricity, magnetism, circuits, optics, waves, or whatever your specialized physics needs may be.

Excellent!!! — Fantastic tutor. My son needed help in Calculus II and Andrew has done a great job helping my son better understand some rather difficult concepts. Andrew is patient and has a passion for teaching. My son is a junior in high school and looks forward to his sessions with Andrew, plus he knows with Andrew's help he will be better prepared for his exams. High marks for Andrew, heart for tutoring ...
