About Andrew

I've worked with young people as a tutor and mentor since my grade school instituted a program to connect 5th and 6th graders with first and second graders. I loved every minute of it and have been helping younger folks learn and succeed ever since, both in volunteer capacities and as a tutor. Maybe because I have many younger siblings and cousins, but I find it easy and rewarding to connect with young people. I've tutored since college, going on 15 years, privately and through programs like WyzAnt. My current interests are all things English, Literature, and History (through college levels), but I also tutor math and science subjects (through high school levels). I am a publisher, editor and writer in my spare time, so I enjoy working with people one on one or even in group settings.

I scored in the 99th Percentile on Sat I/II and GRE Verbal.
I scored in the 90th Precentile on Sat I/II and GRE Math
I have my MFA in Writing from Hollins University. I am a publisher, editor and writer.

Feel free to contact me whenever. I'm happy to chat for a bit and see if we are a fit. I can host students or meet wherever. I have a flexible work schedule and a flexible teaching style. I always design assignments around the needs and personality of my students. We work together to set reasonable goals and meet milestones bit by bit. Improving skills is a process for everyone. We just need to figure out what works best for each of us.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Basketball

I played travel basketball throughout grade school, middle school, and high school. I was in AAU and my highschool team. A knee injury kept me out of college sports, but I've played in competitive adult leagues for the past 10 years. I also coached little league in college and my cousin's middle school league during two summers. I've been to Five Star Basketball camps 4 times. I'm an astute and relentless watcher and reader of all things basketball, pro and college levels.

English

I hold a Masters degree in English and Writing, and am a professional editor and long time tutor.

Reading

Editor, tutor for 15 years, author, publisher, MFA degree, ivy league undergrad.

SAT Reading

I take the SAT test yearly myself to stay fresh and have been tutoring the verbal section for 15 years.

Study Skills

I've been a tutor for 15 years. I've developed many different styles of teaching and aiding students. I've also been a student myself in multiple grad programs, undergrad and high school, all at top of the line institutions. I'm a writing coach and creative mentor in addition to a publisher and editor, so I'm always working in the capacity of a professional teacher or leader in some way. I've struggled with ADD and Dyslexia myself and developed techniques to overcome those debilitating dysfunctions. I can help all but the most severe cases which likely require medication. I'm a homeopath as well, so I know which vitamins, roots, and tinctures to take that can aid in concentration and build focus.

Writing

I studied History and international relations in College.
