About Andrew

Hi! My name is Andrew, and I am a state certified educator with a background in English and History. I love teaching, and learning. I really enjoy sharing my passion and helping others achieve their goals. I have tutored in the past during my time at Bridgewater State University, and will be working as a substitute teacher this fall while I search for a full time position. In the past, I have had great success with the SAT and GRE, as well as helping students learn about literature, writing and history. During my time at Bridgewater State University, I completed Departmental Honors in English Literature, including the completion of an honors thesis in Medieval Literature.

I am able to teach literature and writing up to the high school level, and can handle working with material including Advanced Placement level literature and poetry. In addition, I can tutor for MCAS, SAT, or PSAT.

My love for the English language begins with Anglo-Saxon literature and extends through modern American literature. I have a passionate relationship with this material and the expression of ideas that it represents. This passion is what sets me apart from other English tutors. I am always trying to grow my understanding and help others to understand and love literature. In addition, my professional training as a manager and trainer have helped me develop an excellent ability to explain literary texts. This extends also to tutoring writers and writing.

There is an intimate relationship between literature and history. My knowledge in each area reinforces the other. Putting history in context is the most important way that we can relate to the past. By treating history as more than a list of facts to memorize, I can make it relatable for students. Developing these ideas will make it easier to understand, and even a joy to learn.

If you need assistance with literature, writing, history, or simply preparing for the MCAS, SAT, or PSAT, please contact me! I create innovative lessons that will help you move forward. I can be flexible in scheduling, and truly look forward to hearing for you. I hope that we can work together to accomplish your goals!

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 English

I am a state certified educator in both English Language and literature. My experience with both academic and technical writing, as well as courses taken in linguistics studies make me an ideal tutor for this test.

ACT Reading

My primary focus area as an educator, and as a student, is the study of literature. The ACT Reading exam places a heavy emphasis on comprehension abilities. The amount of time that I have spent learning how to comprehend various works of literature allow me to truly help others grow in their understanding.

English

In addition to a BA in English Literature from Bridgewater State College, I am also a state certified English teacher. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Bridgewater, and also completed Departmental Honors in English, and achieved Commonwealth Honors in Massachusetts. Currently, I am working on my MA in English, and my current graduate GPA is 4.0. Beyond the academic credentials, I have great communication skills.
