About Andy

I am extremely interested in international cultures and helping international students or adults with their ESL learning. I am currently enrolled in a TESOL course and I'm a patient and fun person to work with. I have a very basic knowledge of both Spanish and German. I may not be able to communicate fully with these languages but I use my learning experiences to understand how language works and the best ways it can be taught.

I am an undergraduate student at Saginaw Valley State University pursuing my BA in History with a minor in Religious Studies. I hope to go on to graduate school and work towards an MA in Medieval Studies.

I am a 2008 graduate of the Motion Picture Institute of Michigan so I have experience in filmmaking, screenwriting and film theory as well.

I am a soccer nut and I've played the game since I was 5 years old. I have played in the rec and travel leagues in Midland as well as indoor leagues in Saginaw, intramural leagues at CMU and I played two seasons with the Midland High School team.

I know what it's like to be a student as I am one, and I can provide a patient and fun work environment while challenging the student to think critically and enjoy their learning.

I am currently enrolled in a TESOL program at SVSU and I also work with their Conversation Pods program which pairs American students with international students to help with English acquisition. I speak very basic Spanish and German.
