About Andrew

I did some traveling before college and taught English as a second language as a volunteer in a community center.

I received my degree in Linguistics from the University of Oklahoma and specialized in phonology. Sound patterns and pronunciation are an expertise of mine. In college I led a study group for underclassmen phonology students and designed the pronunciation guide for the first Kiowa-English dictionary ever written. I also have experience in numerous Germanic, Romantic, and Semitic languages, but Spanish is my strongest besides English.

I also specialize in writing of any form. I have worked in poetry, fiction, non-fiction, academic writing, and screenwriting and do editing as well.

I mainly tutor High School English students and college entrance exams right now, but am open to teaching almost anything in writing or language.
My teaching style is Socratic; I would rather guide a student to an answer than offer it.

I am married and have two preschool aged kids. I was raised with a formal musical education, but have no plan to teach in it. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, camping, reading, cycling, and really good movies.
