“**Excellent job of explaining concepts so that a student UNDERSTANDS WHY they are doing the math**”

I am an easygoing 10-year veteran high school science and math teacher. I have a BS in Biochemistry with a minor in Mathematics, an MA in Teaching with a concentration in Mathematics, and have completed significant coursework working towards an MS in Computer Science. I currently hold a valid Advanced Professional teaching certificate from the

Andrew is exceptional at explaining difficult math (calculus) concepts so that my son not only understands how to solve the problem, he also has a much better understanding of why a certain equation is being used and how this might be applied to a "real" world situation. He is also amazingly patient and kind and very in tune with when a student may need to have a math problem or concept explained in a "different way" to match a student's unique learning style and abilities. Andrew is also extremely thorough and organized with regard to email correspondence and planning lesson times and locations, yet he is also very flexible and cooperative when plans need to change. Andrew's encouragement and guidance has helped my son improve his class performance, but more importantly, my son now has more personal confidence and the willingness to continue learning calculus!

Andrew was able to help my son catch up and review chemistry lessons he missed while absent from school. My son felt he was helpful and explained the material very well.

Great Tutor with excellent experience that does a great job walking me through the problems. To the point and conscious of time to ensure as much material is fit in.

Andrew is very helpful and good at explaining on how to solve the problem! He breaks things down in a very simple manner and it has really helped me!

Andrew is an outstanding teacher. He has just started working with my son with his Honors Chemistry class. He prioritized what needed to get done in order for him to be prepared for his quiz and then went back over concepts that he has had trouble with in previous units. He took the time to analyze my son's work and found his strengths and weaknesses. Looking forward to more lessons.

My son just started working with Andrew but so far he has been very helpful in explaining pre-calculus concepts and in helping my son to realize the importance of keeping an organized notebook.

He made the concepts of physics 2 much less abstract. I actually understood more from this lesson than I have all semester!

Good introductory Physics lesson to my daughter who never takes Physic class at all. He was able to make her easy to understand.

Andrew is amazing! He is working with my daughter on AP Physics. Andrew completely empathizes with how busy high school seniors are and is very accommodating with scheduling. He has even met with my daughter on very short notice. Andrew is also very patient and thorough while tutoring. He has my daughter work problems and then discusses the steps. I highly recommend him!

Pre-calc. He appeals to my 17 year old son ( who is not wild about math) out of a few other tutor interviews. He makes scheduling and communication a breeze. No lost time trying to make appointments "fit". Give him a thumbs up!

Andrew has been very helpful to my son (11th grade) in his pursuit of academic success in mathematics. My son had started off the school year with a C average in pre-calculus, and had grown frustrated by the course as a result. In just 4 or 5 one and a half hour sessions with Andrew, he managed to bring his grade up to an A by the end of the quarter. Andrew relates well to the student, and explains complex mathematical concepts in a simple and easy to understand way. He manages the delicate balance between letting a student find their own mistakes and the frustration from not being able to solve a problem well. My son’s confidence level has increased dramatically, which prepares him to try tackle new math material by himself. Other students now turn to my son for help and explanations! I highly recommend Andrew as a math tutor.

Andrew is very good about noticing when I don't get something right away and tries to explain it so I understand.

Andrew has been tutoring me in C++ programming. He is extremely knowledgeable, knows how to present the material so that it is easy to understand, is very patient, and encouraging. He has responded to my messages promptly, and has always arrived on time for our sessions. He is professional and intelligent. I highly recommend him!

Andrew has been an excellent AP Physics tutor with my high school aged daughter. Andrew has a very nice demeanor and works patiently through sample problems. I highly recommend him.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.
