About Drew

My name is Drew and I graduated from the University of Wisconsin La Crosse in 2016. During this time I earned a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Mathematics Education and a coaching concentration. I currently hold a grade 6-12 teaching license in the state of Wisconsin. As an educator, I love interacting with my students. I try to individualize each lesson I create to each individual learner. This allows to see what style of learning fits them best, and I adapt my teaching style as I see fit. While teaching, I have become capable of making interactive lessons that incorporate technology and relate to real world situations. In the past, I have made daily lesson plans for 2 preps (2 different classes) as well as making lessons for students in block as well as standard classrooms.

While student teaching, I have developed the ability to anticipate what concepts students will student with before they are taught. This allows me to plan my lessons in a way that I avoid many headaches that students experience in the typical 30 student classroom. I have also planned lessons for various students with IEPs (individualized education programs). The multiple field experiences I attended, as well as my 18 weeks of student teaching have made me confident in my mathematics and teaching skills for a variety of subjects. I hope to use this tutoring experience to better my teaching skills as well as helping students develop their own ability and love for math.



I have recently graduated for UW La Crosse with a Bachelor's in Secondary Education. While attending school, I retook a algebra and geometry class to freshen up my skills for when I was student teaching. Taking this class again, alongside student teaching allowed to me build upon my mathematical foundation that was established in high school and college. I have also passed the necessary exams on Wyzant for the specified topics.

My favorite part about teaching and tutoring is seeing growth and development that my students experience. I live for the moments when a subject "clicks" for my students and they understand a concept they previously had difficulty with. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

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.

ACT Math

I took the ACT twice in high school and got a 28 on the math section. I also had to learn what was on the ACT to be an effective teacher.

Algebra 1

Excelled in algebra in high school, and retook a class in college to better prepare myself for teaching the subject in the classroom.

Elementary Math

I had to take advanced math classes as well as teaching classes at UW La Crosse, which gave me a firm understanding of elementary math.
