About Andy

In 1978 I earned a Bachelor of Arts with Honors in German from Lake Forest College, along with a minor in Math. I received a Master of Arts in German Literature from Northwestern University in 1984.
After living in Germany from 1979-80, I began my teaching career at Mt. Carmel High School in Chicago, where I taught German I-IV and Algebra from '80-83. I moved to Miami, FL and taught Algebra and Finite Math from '84-85. Returning to Illinois in '85, I taught German level I through Advanced Placement, Algebra I and Mocified Algebra at Lake Park High School, Roselle, IL until I retired in 2011. I returned to Germany to coach football for the 2011 season, and have since continued my coaching at the College of DuPage, Glen Ellyn, IL, coaching Offensive & Defensive Line.
Currently I tutor through Wyzant and nearby school districts in several subjects. I can help you with language, math, grammar, composition in English and German. I can also help you when you want to speak to others. I have over 30 years of experience speaking to several different audiences: School Boards, teams, classrooms, individuals.
If you need someone to bounce ideas off as well, I can help you synthesize and get to the best of your thoughts.

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.

Andy helped Aidan with his work in Algebra...they worked on Aidan's immediate needs. The library was a convenient and quiet location. We will use Andy in the future if needed again.
