Bio

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...

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 Modified 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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

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.
