About Andrew


Bio

Hello!

Nowadays, I work as a mechanical engineer at an aerospace firm but still accept new STEM students of all skill levels. I have published papers on molecular dynamics, nanomaterials, and bioengineering in several science journals. I started off with a liberal arts degree but then made a dramatic pivot toward hard science, so I am very familiar with the struggles that math subjects, such as calculus and algebra, can present to even the most talented students.

Hello!

Nowadays, I work as a mechanical engineer at an aerospace firm but still accept new STEM students of all skill levels. I have published papers on molecular dynamics, nanomaterials, and bioengineering in several science journals. I started off with a liberal arts degree but then made a dramatic pivot toward hard science, so I am very familiar with the struggles that math subjects, such as calculus and algebra, can present to even the most talented students.

I bring nearly four years of experience teaching high school students how to crack the ACT and (old) SAT examination. I have a proven track record as an independent contractor with Tried & True Tutoring, having boosted the ACT/SAT subject performance scores of numerous students. I have also collaborated with the Minority Disability (MIND) Alliance to demystify calculus and physics to promising students from underrepresented backgrounds with sensory handicaps.

My eclectic education in History and Mechanical Engineering gives me a special insight into how people living under different circumstances come to understand or misunderstand difficult source material. As such, I am highly adept at finding effective ways to clarify and relate information to pupils in order to better enable their learning and success. I find that most people are more engaged by math and science applications that they find either personally or socially relevant. That's why I prefer to articulate an engineering, physics, or pure math problem such that my students grasp the intrinsic value in solving it. For example, simple flow through a pipe can be recontextualized as rescuing a town’s water supply, or an electrical circuit response curve can aid in the redesign of a medical pacemaker. Applications like these are engaging to most students because it showcases the power of a STEM education and furnishes them with the agency to reshape their worlds. I believe this because I started out studying history, and learning the social virtues inherent to creating and maintaining our modern life were my motivation to make a career in science.

If you have any questions for me or would like to schedule a session, feel free to message anytime. I look forward to helping you realize your academic and professional potential.

Public Speaking

I was a NYC tour guide for 3 years. I delivered commentary and performed impressions and short tunes through a microphone for groups of 70, 3-4 tours per day, 2-3 hours per tour. I have also headlined stand-up comedy doing a 7-minute set in the East Village club. I believe that I can help others find their speaking voice (be it by rhetoric or oratory) through patient instruction and positive encouragement.

I presently work with a lab that pays me specifically for proofreading and editing their research proposals. I have also been teaching the SAT and ACT grammar-oriented sections for three years. Finally, I have published papers in three separate, peer-reviewed science journals.

Excellent tutor for chemistry

Helpful, knowledgeable and patient. We appreciated that he could accommodate our schedule. His rate is a bit high but it's worth it. He also offered to answer further questions by phone.
