About Andrew

I'm a 51 year old male who is currently an adjunct faculty member at Suffolk County Community College on Long Island. I have lots of patience and experience teaching one-on-one. I can remember what it is like to start out in life and how difficult it can be to keep up with the learning process. I understand what students go through and teach them at their level.

I am a qualified ESL/ESOL tutor through Oxford Seminars based in Los Angeles, California. My idea for teaching includes positive reinforcement and patience. Since learning a new language requires a lot of repetition, there's no reason to focus on what's wrong. The end goal is to get it right and the journey to getting it right requires time and patience.

I worked professionally for 30 years with major TV Networks such as CNN, Court TV, NBC and CBS. If you want to be a top notch professional, I can show you all the things you won't learn in a conventional school. There are many things that can only be learned with experience and I have pretty much experienced everything in my 30 year career.

Don't be afraid to learn new things. I'm not here to put you down. I'm here to bring you up to new levels.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am a graduate of the TESL course from Oxford Seminars in Los Angeles, CA. I tutor English to a wide range of students from beginners to experienced. I am patient and easy to get along with, young or old!

General Computer

I have been using computers since 1983, when I learned BASIC programming on a Commodore PET. Since then, I have built my own computers and set them up for business, gaming and video editing. I'm great with both Mac and PC.

German

I went to the German "Hauptschule" (German public high school) in Bavaria for 4 years. After that, I studied German in College and won the Steuben Award for outstanding achievement in the study of German.

Microsoft Windows

I have been a windows user since windows version 3.11.
I use windows on a daily basis both personally and professionally. I teach Video editing on Windows at Suffolk County Community College in Selden New York and I install windows on computers I build myself. I'm even well versed in the new Windows 10 OS.

Video Production

I worked professionally with the major TV networks such as CNN, CBS, NBC and Court TV for 30 years as a director, technical director, master control operator, Chyron operator and tape operator. For the past 4 years I have been an Adjunct Faculty Member at Suffolk County Community College (Selden, NY) teaching video editing (Adobe Premiere CC and Final Cut Pro).
