About Andrew

I am a political science PhD student at the University of Tennessee, focusing on American government and constitutional law, but I also have a background in international relations and public policy. I currently teach class at UT, and I also have several years of professional tutoring experience, not only in government but also in history, particularly US history and modern world history.

The reason I signed up to be a tutor is because I love helping people get better in their studies! There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the metaphorical light go off in someone's head and for someone to suddenly grasp a complex subject. I pay attention to how a student learns best and try to tailor my tutoring style to what works best for the student, while still making sure they understand the material. I am also patient and encouraging, and so long as it is clear the student is trying I will bend over backwards to help them achieve their goals.

For history, I minored in US history in undergraduate and was awarded membership in the Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society for my outstanding work in the subject. My primary experience is in tutoring college students, but I have worked with high school and middle school students in the past. Most of all, I have been fascinated with both history and politics since I was a child, and I love discussing the subjects with others and helping people learn more about them!

I am generally available from 3 - 8 PM, Monday - Friday. I prefer to meet students in person, but I can do online appointments as well. In terms of where we meet, I am extremely flexible and can meet wherever is best for you. My standard rate is $30/hour, which is comparable to other tutors in this area.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success!

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.

American History

I minored in history during my undergraduate career, and I was inducted into the Phi Alpha Theta national honor society for the study of history. Furthermore, I tutored in US and world history for the first two years of my PhD program

Political Science

I tutored for 2 years in various subjects in political science, and I have 3 years of experience teaching political science courses, particularly American government, at the undergraduate level.

Reading

I am a graduate teaching associate at UT, and I have also tutored grade-school children in reading. My goal is to try to help children be interested in reading and to try to make it fun. For example, I find out what types of things the child is interested in (sports, music, etc) and then find material for them to read on that topic, since I've found that doing so helps them to be more enthusiastic about reading.

Writing

I have a Masters degree that involved a significant amount of writing, and for my Bachelors degree I had to complete a senior Leadership Studies thesis. I also have two years of experience teaching at the college level, and my classes are writing-intensive (term papers, et al). I have also presented several academic conference papers.
