About Andrew

I personally have always had a passion for teaching going as far back as working with my siblings with their homework assignments. I come from a family of 8 kids of varying ages, between 17 - 38 years old now, and when we were growing up this meant there was always someone needing help! In 2012 I received my second Bachelor's from DePaul University. While in college I earned two degrees (Industrial/ Organizational Psychology & Literary Studies) and a minor (Professional Writing); at the same time I stayed active within the community working with local non-profits. I stayed on the dean's list from 2008 to 2012 when I graduated, and was also inducted into Psi Chi Honor's Society for Psychology after having worked as a research assistant with several prominent professors.

At DePaul I built an understanding for Tax law and Tax Increment Financing as well as how to best communicate with people in some of Chicago's poorest neighborhoods while studying the effects of gentrification on developing neighborhoods. I worked as a tutor/ mentor for a community outreach program called "Chicago Lights" working with disenfranchised kids from the West and South sides of Chicago study English, Grammar, Mathematics, and History. While with Chicago Lights I began my own nutrition and fitness class for these same kids to try and help them learn how to best stay healthy. Since I graduated I have risen to an executive position in a boutique real estate development firm where my experiences in both the for-profit and not-for-profit world have proven invaluable and I've found that my skill sets are invaluable in either business climate.

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.

Business

I graduated with a degree in business psychology and I have an extensive work history in multiple business environments in both non-profit companies and for profit companies. I am currently part owner in a real estate business and so have to function as a decision maker and business development officer. This gives me a unique view of many of the different aspects to maintaining and managing a healthy business.

Chess

I was a former member of my high school chess team, and since then have continued my studies through the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis. I am currently a competitive player through online tournaments. I also frequently attend weekly meetings at local chess clubs.

Nutrition

I worked as a personal trainer and nutritionist for gyms in Chicago. I am personally certified through the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) in physical training and health and nutrition. When I was mentoring for Chicago outreach program "Chicago Lights" I taught groups of middle and high school children the importance of idea and what to do to stay healthy. I also have a long personal history as an athlete, having trained for boxing, wrestling, and bodybuilding, all three sports requiring a perfect balance of nutrients to ensure optimal performance.
