About Andrew

I come from a family of teachers (my parents teach music and math, respectively, and my older sister is a third-grade teacher), and as the middle child of five I quickly learned strategies for effective communication. I received a BA in Russian and Linguistics from the University of New Hampshire and subsequently studied in Moscow through federal grants. I have defended my candidacy for an MFA in Fiction at the University of New Hampshire as well. A cumulative result is extensive experience in communicating ideas strategically, independently, and creatively--experience that I can use for you.

I have almost ten years of private tutoring experience, particularly in research and composition. I have worked with students as young as the third grade and as experienced as second graduate degree candidates. I have taught in the undergraduate classroom as a TA of linguistics, composition, and creative fiction workshops. I am excited to talk to you about your personal tutoring needs, and hope to hear from you soon.

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.

Public Speaking

In addition to my personal experiences conceiving, designing, and delivering award-winning presentations, I have received special training through the University of New Hampshire's Oral Communications Lab to instruct public presentation. As a team member of that pilot program, I helped to implement the program for students. I have experience in helping students in all aspects of public speaking: brainstorming, researching content, speech writing, presentation development, and rehearsal for delivery.

Writing

I hold an MFA in Fiction from the University of New Hampshire, and have close to ten years of experience in tutoring composition studies. As an academic tutor, I have conducted one-on-one sessions with students up to the PhD-level to discuss edits and revisions to their work. I have additional experience as the fiction editor for the literary journal, Barnstorm.
