Turn yours struggles into success! I have been tutoring for over fourteen years and have worked with students of diverse backgrounds. I began tutoring during high school as a volunteer tutor to an algebra class at a private Catholic school in my community. I had always assisted my peers in class, so tutoring formally came very naturally to me. My high school guidance counselors saw how much I excelled at math and science, as well as how my I enjoyed sharing my affinity for those subjects with other students in the classroom, and suggested that I tutor at the high school. As a volunteer during high school, I tutored algebra through upper level math and even tutored several students who had previously struggled to complete the PASS program.

When I attended university at the University of Chicago, I volunteered to tutor students on the south side of Chicago. I met students who lacked the the educational resources that I was accustomed to having. Having scored in the 99+ percentile on both the SAT and the ACT, I also began tutoring students in standardized test preparation. Given the variety of students whom I have worked with, I am able to bring up the scores of those who are struggling and also help those who are reaching for the very top.

I truly enjoy all of the subjects that I tutor, and I hope that my students see how fun their formerly hated subjects can be. I can hardly imagine a more fun Saturday afternoon than one filled with calculus problem sets, and I hope that my students can at least learn not to dread them. Throughout my near decade of tutoring experience, I have also worked with numerous adult students who were re-learning math after many years away from academic math. I welcome adult learners and all levels from middle school through university.

I actually began physics tutoring with my sister in high school before I had taken physics myself, which might be a testament to how much I enjoy both tutoring and physics. I've since scored a 5 on the AP exam and taken upper level physics with calculus at the University of Chicago.

My love for chemistry began with a 5 in AP Chemistry, followed by a perfect score on the SAT II Chemistry test, and my enrollment in Organic Chemistry at a university during my senior year of high school, because I couldn't stand to wait another year to take more chemistry. I've since taken upper level Honors Organic Chemistry at the University of Chicago, and I would be delighted to share the joys of chemistry and organic chemistry with you.

My math background coupled with my knowledge of Ancient Greek and Latin gives me the ability to provide added insight on both the Math and Verbal portions of the SAT. I teach individualized SAT courses including both or either subject.

More about me:
I graduated from the University of Chicago with a degree in Biological Sciences with an Endocrinology Specialization. I've always loved academics and tutoring others, and I would be delighted to help you or your child.

I was also valedictorian of my high school class of 400+, a National Merit Scholar (requires placement in the 99+ percentile of the PSAT), and a National AP Scholar (requires scores of 4 or 5 on 8 or more exams. Mine included Calculus, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, European History, US History, English, and Psychology).

I have tutored the following subjects:
SAT and ACT preparation

Mathematics:
Advanced Algebra
Algebra
Precalculus
Calculus
Geometry
Pre-Algebra
Trigonometry
SAT and ACT Math sections
SAT Math Level 1 and 2 Subject Tests
IB Math

Sciences:
Biology
Dissection/Anatomy
Chemistry
Organic Chemistry
Physics

I have also done university coursework in physics, molecular biology, physiology, endocrinology, calculus, differential equations, organic chemistry, Ancient Greek (Attic), Latin, and German.

In order to keep up with the changes to the ACT, I took the April 2016 administration and received a perfect 36 composite score.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!!

First lesson and many to come. My daughter had her first lesson today and could not be more impressed. My daughter informed me that she was patient, understanding and most of all wanted to learn the struggles my daughter has recently had. Comfort level Andrea provided to daughter was outstanding and opened up quickly to her. She looks forward to next week's session. My first initial call with Andrea was great. She provided me with a quick run down what she provides during these lessons and what her key points are to improve based on her assessment. I look forward to my daughter working with her.

Gigi, 3 lessons with Andrea

Helpful first lesson

Began SAT prep. My daughter's first time with online tutoring. She said it went well. Setting up another tutoring session. They worked on math and English. Andrea gave helpful tips on how to take the tests.

Highly Recommend this Excellent Tutor

Andrea R. has been tutoring my son in Physics and Calculus. She is highly dependable, knowledgeable and approachable. She explains things very clearly to my son and he leaves every session feeling like he learned the material well, with all his questions fully answered. My communication with her has been excellent as well. She responds to my questions promptly and completely every time. In addition, she has worked well with us to arrange a mutually convenient time and place for the tutoring sessions. I highly recommend Andrea R.!

Rosemary, 47 lessons with Andrea

Awesome Tutor!

Knowledgeable about many SAT tips and tricks I had never heard of! Very smart, swift, and patient! We worked through an SAT Math test and she helped me relearn parts of Algebra i had forgotten as well as new concepts like Sin, Cos, and Tan! What was most helpful was her SAT test tips! I feel more confident going forward now :-) Thank you!

Good experience

My son has only had one tutoring session so far and found it extremely helpful. He is doing ACT prep and will be meeting with her regularly prior to re-taking the test.

Great Tutor

She helps me get my calculus work done fast and efficiently. Great at explaining to me what to do in simple terms. I would recommend having her as a tutor. She has really helped improve my skills in little time.

Maddie, 10 lessons with Andrea

Off to a great start!

My son was very pleased after their first SAT prep session. He said she was very knowledgeable, really "knew her stuff", and gave him constructive feedback on how to improve. He is confident she will really help him improve his scores on the standardized tests, as well as do better in his pre-calculus class. We are looking forward to the weeks ahead, anticipating great gains!

Julia, 7 lessons with Andrea

Patient and helpful.

Andrea analyzed previous test scores and sample tests and helped me figure out what I needed to work on most. She provided valuable test taking strategies. I highly recommend her!
