About Andrea

Hello! My name is Andrea and I'd like to tell you a little about myself. I graduated from Duke University with a BS degree in Biology, and received my Master's degree in Secondary Science Education from the University of Pittsburgh. I student taught high school Biology, and have also taught middle school biology and earth science. I have worked in the pharmaceutical industry as well, so I have a thorough background in medical and pharmaceutical terminology, human physiology and anatomy, and organ systems and disease.

I have tutored most of my seven nieces and nephews in the life and earth sciences, with great success. Learning science requires the ability to memorize as well as the ability to grasp abstract concepts. I help students use material they are already familiar with to learn science, and I use visual and manipulative aids as often as possible. I will work with a student to discover their learning style and strengths, and help them develop confidence as well as subject understanding.

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.

Biology

I graduated from Duke University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. I received a Master's of Art degree in secondary science education from the University of Pittsburgh, and taught both middle and high school students while attending graduate school. My career has been in medical sales, so I have kept my science skills well-honed. I have also done corporate-level adult training in science-related material.
