About Andrew

Writing and constructing essays is an an important part of an education, and a fun part too. A confident and readable writing style can open doors, make taking examinations easier and create a lifetime of opportunity. However it can also be intimidating and restricting if you don't know or understand how to write effectively. Nothing is likely to hinder a job or college application quite like a poorly written, unclear essay. We may no longer require our young people to write cursive, but the ability to write effectively remains as important as ever.

I am a British-educated writer, journalist and editor for a well-known international newspaper based in London, although I am based in Louisville, Kentucky. I work as the paper's North American Business & Economics correspondent and write a weekly Op-Ed column. I have also worked as a stock market correspondent, investment editor and private equity comment writer. I have also written on topics as diverse as lifestyle features, travel and sport.

My real passion is passion for learning for the sake of learning. I would love to pass that passion on to students who are willing to learn more and succeed using the power of good writing.

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 spent nine years working as a stockbroker following my undergraduate degree. I then worked as a business journalist, firstly as a correspondent at Private Equity News, then as Stock Market correspondent at The Independent (London), then as Investment Editor at The Independent. Until recently I was US Business and Economics correspondent, again at The Independent (London). I have also written for The Financial Times and Salon. I have a Master's in Business Communication (4.0 GPA). I have also been a business owner as well as a writer and broker.
