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 13+ 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.

Excellent Human Geography Tutor

I highly recommend Drew as a human geography tutor. He has a deep understanding of the subject matter and is able to effectively communicate and explain complex concepts in his lessons. Drew is also very patient and understanding, which made a huge difference for my daughter. His explanations are always clear and concise, making it easy for her to understand and retain the information. Additionally, Drew's communication skills are top-notch, he is always available to answer questions and provide support. Overall, Drew is an excellent human geography tutor who I would highly recommend to anyone who is seeking help with the subject.

Great Teacher!

Drew is an amazing teacher! My son said Drew makes the material easy to learn & fun. Drew has his own slides of the material & makes sure my son really understands the concepts taught in AP HUG. He also has a great sense of humor.

Organized and patient tutor

AP Hum Geo. My daughter had her first class and she really liked it. It was focussed and helped her to get prepared with the class materials. The timings and class format is very convenient too. My daughter felt motivated to learn.

Knowledgeable and confidence-building!

My daughter had gone through 2 chapters of her first AP class and felt totally lost. After just one session, she had a complete understanding of the material and was totally confident about the class.

Beth, 10 lessons with Drew

Great first session

My daughter just had her first session with Drew. Afterward I asked her how it went and I got a pretty enthusiastic "good" which I know means she felt it worth while to get up a little earlier than usual on a Saturday (we are 3 hour time difference from Drew) and study with Drew's guidance! That says it all! I communicated with Drew beforehand to let him know what I was looking for and he was very open about what he could offer and how he would approach things with her - I really appreciated all the informative communication! I am very pleased with everything overall!
