About Andrew

I was trained as a field entomologist. After completion of my M.S., I worked as a geneticist at VUMC for over five years, where I found that being a real scientist is not much fun.

I left the research laboratory to become a high school teacher in 2006, scoring a 199 out of 200 on the College Board's Biology Subject Area PRAXIS Examination without reviewing. From 2011 to 2016 I taught AP Chemistry at one of the top public high schools in Nashville, Tennessee for five years. During this time I built the most successful program in the entire district in terms of student success rate on the College Board's AP Chemistry Examination.

M.S. in Ecology; working knowledge of chi-square, Student's t-, ANOVA, and non-parametric tests

M.S. in Biology; five-plus years' work experience in a C. elegans research lab; self-taught expert in college-level General and Organic Chemistry

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.

Organic Chemistry

I took the Chemistry 118 series (Organic Chemistry for Pre-Medicine majors) at UC Davis instead of the Chemistry 8 series (Brief Course for non-majors). THat should be enough. What else am I going to do with the excess knowledge I acquired from this rigorous and in-depth course?

In addition, I incorporated this knowledge and experience into my five years of teaching AP Chemistry.
