About Drew


Bio

I love learning and enjoy helping others find success; that’s why I became a teacher. I’ve pursued formal learning with an undergraduate degree in History and Social Studies Education and a master’s degree in Social Studies Learning and Instruction. I hold a current teaching license in Minnesota. I began my career by teaching middle school and high school social studies for eight years in international schools in China and Mexico . Those experiences were foundational to my personal growth...

I love learning and enjoy helping others find success; that’s why I became a teacher. I’ve pursued formal learning with an undergraduate degree in History and Social Studies Education and a master’s degree in Social Studies Learning and Instruction. I hold a current teaching license in Minnesota. I began my career by teaching middle school and high school social studies for eight years in international schools in China and Mexico . Those experiences were foundational to my personal growth through the exploration of varied cultures and history. Professionally, it was wonderful to work with students from all over the world. Combined with my experience in Minnesota, I’ve taught for 15+ years.

Non-fiction writing like essays, FRQs, thesis creation, etc. can be frustrating. I remember some of my own specific struggles as a high school student, but I also had great teachers leading me towards improvement and ultimately success. I’ve held onto those memories as I guide students through the challenges of writing in my social studies classes.

I’ve taught a wide range of social studies courses, including three different AP courses, with my students scoring well above the global mean on the AP exam. My continual pursuit of learning and travel have provided the context to enable me to help students in engaging ways. I have been an AP Reader (grader/scorer) at two AP Readings, where the free response questions are graded. My experiences at the AP Readings led to greater score gains for my subsequent students, particularly on their writing. My tutoring focus is on Human Geography - both standard level and Advanced Placement (AP).

I love helping students find success and confidence in themselves as students and life-long learners. We do this by working on study skills, organization, reading for understanding, school assignments, essays, tests, projects, and summer assignments. Please contact me with any questions and hopefully we can start soon on a path towards improvement.

Prompt and very knowledgeable

Drew helped my son in clarifying difficult concepts with simple words and examples. My son’s MCQ and FRQ taking skills and score has improved under Drew’s guidance. I am so glad I found a great tutor on Wyzant, who is for sure a subject matter expert in AP Human Geography!

My 9th grade IB student needed a little help with confidence before an AP Human Geo test. Drew helped tremendously! My son said he would definitely use him again.

I would give 10 stars if I could!

Drew is an excellent tutor. He was able to review a great deal of complicated human geography material with my 9th grade daughter in a way she could easily understand. Very grateful!

Knowledgeable and understanding tutor

Drew provided great direction to my 6th grade daughter. He was able to build rapport quickly and accomplish a lot during his first hour with her. She is already incorporating some of the tips they discussed into her writing.
