About Andrew

Hey there!

You might be asking, "Am I a qualified tutor?"
I am here to convince you that the answer to that question is "Freaking YES!"
I'll briefly go over my past tutoring experiences:

I started teaching younger students as early as 8th grade. Teachers noticed my proficiency in math skills and asked if I would be willing to participate in a tutoring program. I gladly accepted and my first tutee just happened to be my 6th grade neighbor out of pure coincidence which made it easier for me to get close to him and make a connection. Even as I went onto high school, I continued to tutor others in math as I was in honors classes and a year ahead of my peers. Then in college, after finishing my first semester, the chemistry professor again asked if I would like to tutor his class for free metrocard compensations. I again gladly accepted. After that, I had office hours in an empty class just like a professor, where many students visited for help at their own time. As I dealt with more college level students, I tried to give them less of a guidance and gave only few hints to the problems so that they themselves could figure out the solution.
Then, through a friend's recommendation, I was hired by the math tutoring center as a math tutor. The math tutoring center was the busiest and most dedicated tutoring center throughout the whole college. After weeks of tutoring, the director of the center believed that I was able to lead a workshop, which involved teaching a classroom sized students, helping them on their homework, and answering any specific questions they had. I thanked him for his confidence in me and began teaching workshops, which was an unforgettable learning experience for me and hopefully for those students too.
Later, in the summer of 2014, I simultaneously taught SAT PREP to high school students and high school math to middle school students at Esoterica academy. I loved the fact that the classes were structured. Classes had specific beginning and ending times each day, the bulk of materials were given prior to the classes where I could pick and choose the problems that I wanted to use, and the head of the academy visited my classes often to see my teaching work which made me more eager to improve. Nowadays, I concentrate more heavily on my major of Chemical Engineering, which requires a lot of time dedication. But I still practice teaching through leading my study group almost on a daily basis during the semesters, which I enjoy quite a lot.

As you see, I spent a lot of my adolescence and young adult life teaching others. And when you keep doing a certain job, you began to think A LOT about that job. You try to see it from different perspective, on ways to improve, on what mistake to not make, and so on. So, over the years, I've accumulated my thoughts on the tutoring job and came up with my own tutoring philosophy. This is how I genuinely feel about this activity called tutoring:

I love to learn new knowledge. I always pondered about the fastest and the most comprehensive way to learn so that I can always easily remember and utilize the newly gained knowledge. I believe tutoring is more about learning than teaching. One needs to know how to learn really well to be qualified to teach others. Because only through mastering learning, you can truly understand the student’s perspective. This allows me to be a tutor, but the fact that I genuinely have an enjoyable time with students on the job makes me a passionate tutor. And although I am stating these qualifications, I know that tutoring requires constant work and preparation. As a person who has held a teaching position in a goal-driven, structured academy and with much experience in teaching students overall, and I am ready to be fully dedicated to the job.
My college learning environment, that I am currently in, will not only support my dedication to learn and improve on teaching lessons, but will also allow me to give specific college guidance to many students, so they won't have to struggle like how I have experienced my high school to college transition. Overall, if you are in search of a tutor who is willing to be dedicated and passionate for the job and will do whatever it takes to raise those grades, give me a chance to meet with you and I will prove it.

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.

Great teacher, very patient! — I truly learned a lot from this experience. His tutoring was superb. I felt like a nonpolar covalent bond was formed from our session. Though it felt like a merger more strong. Like a basic cubic unit cell that consists of two atoms. I'd definitely return again for more tutoring. ...
