About Andy

I am a junior at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute pursuing a B.S in Computer Science. During the academic year, I worked with students ranging from elementary school to high school as part of RPI Tutor Time. RPI Tutor Time is a program designed to help increase a child's self-esteem and confidence while nurturing a continued desire to learn. As a tutor, I aim to help students that struggle academically and are falling behind by analyzing their weaknesses and structure stable foundations for higher-level coursework to build upon; however, I can teach students who want to be challenged and learn new material in advance.

As I am a visual learner myself. I assimilate diagrams, drawings, patterns, and techniques to process information visually for students; thus, giving them a better picture of the problems at hand.

During my experience as a tutor, I have encountered many instances when students are unable to understand higher-level concepts because of inadequate understanding and knowledge of base concepts that build upon these higher-level concepts. By finding where the issues stem from, I am able to help students understand the material better and apply that knowledge in the classroom and exams. I take pride in having my students leave every session feeling inspired and feeling confident in their new found understanding of coursework material.
If there are any inquiries or concerns, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to helping you achieve your academic goals!

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.

Python

I am a computer science major at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and I have taken a course in Python. I have also worked at an internship and had to write a program in Python.

SAT Math

I have tutored math for over 4 years and I have scored in the 99th percentile in the math section when I took the test. I also attend RPI and have taken up the Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations, so my expertise in the subject is fairly extensive.
