About Andrew

I have a love of working with students. I bring a wealth of life experience to my teaching, which serves me well in the classroom. I believe in the potential of students and strive to bring out the best in them, to the best of my ability. I have a great rapport with young people. I am typically a favorite of students, attested to by other teachers, principals, and the students themselves.

I am in the process of a career change. I have years of experience as an aerospace contractor, working on the Space Shuttle contract. My educational background is in Computer Science. But my certification focus for teaching is in Social Studies, this is the subject of the TEXES Content Exam I passed. I am qualified to teach a range of history subjects, including Geography, Government & Politics, and Economics.

I have also completed a TESOLS course, so I am capable of working with speakers of other languages to assist them in learning English. And although it is not my primary focus, I am capable of assisting students in English, in general. My strength in English comes primary from my lifelong love of reading and my ability in writing. I also have the experience of being a member of Toastmasters of America, the acknowledged leader in teaching people how to speak in public. This background has been of inestimable value to me as a teacher addressing students in the classroom.

If my profile seems adequate to you, I would relish the opportunity to work with your child to help them be a better student, and prosper in their academic pursuits.

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.

Literature

I have years of reading and interpreting works of literature; I have read many noted books in
the "Literary Canon." I am experienced in helping students to comprehend classic texts of literature. I am experienced in writing academic papers; research, book reviews, and summaries.

Public Speaking

I was a member of Toastmasters International, for about two years. During this time I completed the required speeches to become a "Competent Communicator." I have also worked as a substitute teacher for two academic school years now, so I am addressing an audience of students on a regular basis. Therefore, I have lots of experience with public speaking.

Social Studies

As a part of the Alternative Certification program I am in, I passed the required State of Texas content exam for Social Studies; it is the subject that I am hoping to teach full-time.

World History

I have passed the TEXES Content Exam for Social Studies Grades 8-12. And I have passed the TESOLS Exam for English as a second language students. I also have years of experience in writing with focus and cohesion.
