About Andrea

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.

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.

ACT English

I have been successfully tutoring the ACT for several years. I scored in the 99+ percentile on my own ACT.

Algebra 1

I have tutored algebra for nine years across all age groups. This includes individual students and groups ranging from middle school students to adults returning to math in college after many years away from the subject. I have also taught algebra independently to students who were not enrolled in a separate course.

For high school students, I can integrate SAT problems into their algebra work.

Algebra 2

I have tutored algebra 2 for a variety of students throughout the years. This includes struggling high school students, as well as adults returning to math after many years.

Biology

I have a degree in Biology from the University of Chicago, a top ten ranked university. I have many years of experience in biology and with teaching biology.

Calculus

I have tutored students in AP Calculus and university level calculus for many years.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken and excelled in organic chemistry at the university level and also went on to take Honors Level Organic Chemistry at the University of Chicago. This honors course dealt with graduate level organic chemistry topics well beyond the scope of standard organic chemistry topics, so I am confident that I can help struggling organic chemistry students. Much to the surprise of my professor, I received perfect scores on my organic chemistry exams curved to an 80% for an A, so I will be able to use both my tutoring experience and my exceptional organic chemistry study skills and background to assist you with your chemistry troubles.

Physics

I have tutored multiple students in high school physics and am equipped to tutor students in college or university physics. I have a strong background in physics from the University of Chicago, one of the top ten universities in the country.

I bring in everyday examples to help student truly understand the basics of physics reasoning, which in turn makes the problems easier. Additionally, I tutor all levels of math and can recognize and correct any math deficiencies that may be causing the student difficulties in physics.

Prealgebra

I have several years of experience tutoring prealgebra, both in the classroom and at private home lessons.

Precalculus

I have tutored multiple students in precalculus. My students range from those who were struggling to pass to those who were looking to excel, and all have achieved success. I have experience tutoring calculus and standardized test preparation math, so I am also able to incorporate these types of problems and foresight into my tutoring style.

SAT Math

I have tutored multiple students in SAT Math, Verbal, and Reading sections.

I scored in the 99.9th percentile myself on the SAT and PSAT tests.

SAT Reading

I have tutored multiple students in SAT Math, Verbal, and Reading sections.
