About Andrea

Would you like to be tutored by a professionally certified teacher of grades 5-12 (NYS and CT)? Perhaps you would like to receive admissions advice from someone who has assessed applicants to Georgetown for years? Do you want to study for the AP exams with an adjunct instructor for college freshmen core classes (UConn)? How about learning from a graduate of Georgetown (History and International Affairs) or Columbia (Social Studies Education + Literacy)? Perhaps you would just like to learn writing and critical thinking under someone who has worked in editing, research, writing, and instructional capacities for U. Cambridge, Johns Hopkins, and William & Mary? Whichever one is your answer, Please contact me if you want the most personalized Writing tutor, College Admissions consultant, or teacher of History, Government, or English in the area!

I specialize in customized instruction, for middle school, high school, and college students, that fits their diverse needs. I am highly skilled at applying creative strategies to help teens to dramatically improve their writing, research, critical thinking, analysis, and study skills. I effectively improve students’ writing skills, guiding them through the entire process- from brainstorming and research, through literary analysis and final edits. I also help students as they choose the best study skills methods. In addition, I make content “come alive.” Most of my tutoring students start to achieve “A”s in their courses rather quickly. My college admissions clients ultimately gain admission to more than one best fit college. My teaching maximizes student success.

I am a truly caring instructor, who connects extremely well with students. I have a proven ability to mentor teens and young adults by establishing a personal connection. I also draw upon students' interests and learning preferences.

My former students have continued to do quite well in college, graduate school, and the early years of their careers.

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.

American History

A product of the Georgetown, Cambridge, W&M, and Columbia TC history programs, this is my tenth year as a history teacher and tutor.

As a teacher, I have helped students of all abilities to significantly improve their writing, study techniques, critical / analytical thinking abilities, grammar, and reading comprehension. Almost all of my tutoring students have become A-level students in all of their humanities courses and exams, including Regents, AP and college courses. I also specialize in middle school education. I am constantly updating and refreshing my skills and lessons, as well as customizing my instruction, to ensure the success of all students!

Numerous educators, who are familiar with my students, their struggles, and their subsequent accomplishments, have commented on the strengths of my customized sessions, which highlight students' strengths, target students' weaknesses, reflect student interests, and accommodate students' individual needs in order to maximize the positive results.

My students tend to be extremely happy with my tutoring, and their grades and scores improve, often by a very large amount!

College Counseling

As an interviewer for Georgetown, research assistant to a prominent college admissions consultant for Ivy bound applicants, and staff member at two small, successful, college counseling organizations, which focus on matching students to their genuinely best fit schools, I have worked on both sides of the application process and hold an excellent client placement record. Whether you need help with creating a list of summer programs and scholarships; choosing potential colleges to investigate and visit; planning those visits; improving your English Test Prep skills; preparing for interviews; exploring interest areas; brainstorming, drafting and polishing your personal statement, short answers, essays, and videos; inquiring about special programs; deciding where to apply; filling in actual applications; and/or applying for financial aid and scholarships; I'd love to help you and your family.

English

Looking for a trained and experienced literacy (reading and writing) instructor to help you with a regular-level 6th-12th English course? or perhaps a standardized test- ISEE, SSAT, ACT, or SAT?

Besides being one of the first to tutor for the NYS English high school Common Core exam, and a successful tutor for the ELA sections of the ACT, SAT, ISEE, and SSAT, I taught regular English to grades 7-12 in a CT private school for two years before deciding to focus on one-on-one instruction. As a result, I can help you to improve your writing, reading comprehension, literary analysis, public speaking, and/or listening skills.

European History

Are you looking for help with AP European History, Western Civilization I & II, or a European History elective? Look no further!

As a student of European history during college, experienced tutor of AP Euro, and certified Adjunct Instructor for UConn's Modern Western Traditions course, I have extensive knowledge to draw upon while helping you to improve your analytical abilities, develop better study skills, ace your essays, and make sense of all those details! A product of the Georgetown, Cambridge, W&M, and Columbia TC history programs, this is my tenth year as a history teacher and tutor.

Government & Politics

A product of the Georgetown, Cambridge, and Columbia TC social studies/sciences programs, this is my tenth year as a government teacher and tutor. I have experience teaching U.S. Government, International Relations, and Comparative Government courses for middle school, high school, and college students.

As a former Congressional intern, Congressional employee, and staff member at a public policy organization, I am quite familiar with how our own government works. In addition, my graduate level coursework in International Affairs provided insights into the U.S. government, democratization efforts around the world, political philosophy, and several other forms of government, both past and present.

Social Studies

A product of the Georgetown, Cambridge, W&M, and Columbia TC social studies / social science programs, this is my tenth year teaching social studies in the classroom and one-on-one. I have taught in NYC, on LI, and now in CT. As a result, I know the Regents, updated AP, and new CT curricula for grades 5-12 in social studies, history, government, psychology, etc.

Study Skills

One of the most important tasks when providing tutoring is to identify the best study techniques for a particular student. I have extensive experience helping regular, honors, and AP students to improve their study skills and substantially raise their grades. As an inquisitive teacher, I am also quite familiar with a large variety of successful methods to use when trying to remember diverse types of information. My training and experiences enable me to help each of my students to identify and master the most beneficial study technique(s) for him/her.

World History

A product of the Georgetown, Cambridge, W&M, and Columbia TC history programs, this is my tenth year as a history teacher and tutor. World History has always been my specialty. My lessons are a mix of regional focus projects and cross-regional comparisons within a time period.

My teaching certification is in grades 5-12 and as a college adjunct professor. Before becoming a teacher, I worked in writing intensive positions at Cambridge, a national non-profit, and William & Mary. As a result, I will most certainly help you to write better papers, whether they are short responses, literary analysis, DBQs, thematic essays, comparative pieces, persuasive editorials, analytical essays, creative narratives, personal statements, or formal research papers. I might even be able to help with poetry!
