Hello! My name is Andy - I am an 11-year veteran of the U.S. Navy Submarine Force, and I currently work as an engineer with a defense contractor. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Systems Engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy, and a Master of Education degree from Norwich University. I achieved perfect math scores of 800 on both the SAT and the GRE. I have tutored many students, especially in NY high school Regents math and science courses, as well as college calculus and calculus-based physics, and I truly enjoy sharing my methods of understanding these subjects with others. I will happily provide recommendations from my former students upon request. Thank you for your consideration!

Easy to work with, very knowledgeable

My daughter really enjoyed learning from Andy. His subject knowledge is great, but his demeanor and ability to relate to students where they are is outstanding.

Rick, 2 lessons with Andrew

Helpful calc exam review

Andy and my son went over calc problems, mainly related to derivatives, before his college Calc I exam. Son thought Andy was knowledgeable and helpful, and accomodative in setting a time and location for the meeting. Would utilize Andy's talents again for sure -

Excellent HS Geometry Tutor

Andy has been a big help to my son with geometry. He is very patient and easy to work with. My son's confidence with the material has increased and he is now doing better in the class.

Jennifer, 23 lessons with Andrew

excellent tutor

Matt is a terrific tutor; he "knows his stuff' and is both patient and friendly. My son has been doing much better in his Business Calculus class since he started working with Matt.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Andrew was very knowledgeable and helped my grandson a great deal. He had been struggling through the year he now understands algebra1. One hour makes a difference. Thanks Andrew

Cindy, 1 lesson with Andrew

Andrew was fantastic, knowledgeable, patient & able to explain Trig at a level that was understandable.

Trig. Andrew explains things at a level that anyone could understand. Very much looking forward to my next session. Thank you!

Lucy, 3 lessons with Andrew

Andrew is good at explaining problems in a way that makes it easier to solve.

Andrew is teaching my daughter trig. Andrew is patient and encouraging and helps her stay calm and focused in a subject she has felt lost and overwhelmed with.

Wonderful, patient tutor!

I can't say enough nice things about Andy! He is so patient with my daughter, answering her questions without making her feel stupid or uncomfortable. After he left, my daughter said, "I wish Andy was my math teacher." This is no higher praise from a teenager.

Dolores, 9 lessons with Andrew

Great teacher

My granddaughter was overwhelmed with her course and and felt she just couldn't catch up. We contracted with Andrew and she is very pleased with him because he is very patient, explains things in different ways, and makes sure she truly understands the concepts. She feels much more confident with her pre-calculus course and is able to handle her quizzes and tests. Thanks Andrew.
