About Andrew

Greetings! My name is Andrew, and I am an easy-going high school math and science teacher originally from MD with a decade of classroom teaching experience. I am a passionate and enthusiastic life-long learner who enjoys helping others achieve their educational goals. Having already impacted literally thousands of students, I am eager to personally work with you as well!

Education IS a way of life. I most recently completed a comprehensive coding course for full stack developers at The Iron Yard. Prior to moving to NC, I had completed coursework towards an MS in Computer Science at Johns Hopkins' Applied Physics Lab in MD while teaching full-time. I have been decorated as a S.T.E.M. Teaching Fellow, and enjoyed working tirelessly in many diverse settings, ranging from suburban private schools to inner-city Title I schools. I currently possess valid Advanced Professional teaching certificates from the state of Maryland in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics for grades 7-12.

I am best situated to tutor students in the Cary/Morrisville area, working exclusively out of West Regional Library most evenings and Saturdays. If you are interested in communicating further, please message privately. You will find that I am prompt, courteous, and can be incredibly accommodating. Thank you for your time and interest!

Excellent Math Tutor!

My son was tutored weekly lessons by Andrew for pre-calculus and ICM this past year. Andrew was excellent in assessing what my son already knew, explaining and reinforcing new or confusing concepts and providing much needed encouragement along the way. My son does not like math, and is easily frustrated, especially when needing to write out long problems and showing all the work.Andrew was very pa
