I have over ten years of experience as a tutor, working at various universities, companies, and even privately. I provide tutoring in subjects ranging from elementary math to Calculus, earth science to chemistry, grammar to essay writing, and foreign languages like French and Spanish. I specialize in tutoring math and science. I am equally as helpful in language studies. I have a great grasp of English, having spent many years as an ESL instructor. I am fluent in Spanish and conversational in French. And I am always working with students to prepare for and improve scores on PSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, and GED.

I began my education in Liberty University in Virginia and finally graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. I live with my wife and young daughter in a small town just north of McKinney. I have traveled with my family both all over the United States and the world. I have visited nearly every state in the United States, except Hawaii and Vermont. I lived as far away as Mexico and Cape Town, South Africa! The sights in that part of Africa are amazing.

In my free time, I enjoy either picking up my guitar or sitting down at the piano. I enjoy my work with students, especially having the satisfaction of helping them achieve success in academics. My method is geared towards understanding of the material, rather than just rote completion of homework. This is, as the story goes, like "teaching the man to fish." While it may sound cliché, this goes a long way in helping students to achieve true success in their studies.

GRE

GRE

I have over 10 years of experience tutoring various subjects and have worked at least five years preparing students for entrance exams, ranging from SAT and ACT to GRE and ISEE. The Math section of the GRE is definitely my favorite! It is certainly challenging, but I have had success in teaching students the concepts necessary for them to ace the exam! Instead of simply teaching students how to "trick" the test, I teach the concepts that are integral to a good score and success once admitted into the intended program of study.

Computer

Macintosh,

Macintosh

I am an Apple Genius - or nearly so. I was a student of Computer Engineering in my younger years, but I was hooked to the PC. After graduating, I picked up a Mac and taught myself how to walk again. It did not take long. I often find myself automating tasks for family members and friends and instructing them on use of Apple hardware. I now teach many of those same lessons that I learned myself when switching over to the new operating system.

I have many years experience in this field. I have taught at various institutions and universities, both in Mexico and the United States. I am bilingual, fluent in both English and Spanish. I have taught both, English to Spanish-speaking individuals, and Spanish to English-speaking individuals. It would be easier to simply submit my resume, if necessary. Let me know if further details are necessary.

Spanish

I am fully bilingual after having spent many years studying in Mexico.

I work with students to understand the difference between a colon and a semicolon, a dangling modifier and unclear pronoun references.

Dedicated Physics Tutor

Physics AP. He was able to give my daughter the help she needed. It might have taken us a second or 2 to get ready but after that it went well. I like the fact that we were able to meet at a Starbucks.

Pat, 1 lesson with Drew

Wonderful Tutor

The summer flew by.....Glad to have you around Drew!!! Thank you for helping him though Chemistry sophmore year. It is so wonderful to have you from the beginning all year

Ethan, 38 lessons with Drew

Great tutor

Very helpful and patient with my daughter. Always very prompt and responds quickly to emails. Very knowledgeable in algebra. Will continue to use for tutoring.

Cindy , 4 lessons with Drew

Doing great

Drew is really helping my son raise his grade in Geometry. Drew stays on task, helps discover where my son is struggling, then works with him to understand the concepts and practice. Recommend highly.

Aaron, 20 lessons with Drew

Very helpful

My son is now understanding Chemistry due to Drew's individual attention. His last test score showed huge improvement. This improvement is a direct reflection of the 2 sessions before his test. He is moving in the right direction.

Pat, 3 lessons with Drew

Extremely Knowledgeable multi-subject tutor

Drew has been our tutor for a couple of years now. Not only does he do an amazing job tutoring my son, but he has been a huge help in tutoring my daughter and myself as we take Gen-Ed courses for college (Statistics, College Algebra and Chemistry). Drew began tutoring my son in several subjects but we soon discovered my son needed focus in math. We worked hard and now my son has brought his grade up enough that he now does not need to take modified math in school. We have started working on some Language Arts and I am confident we will be successful there as well. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Drew. I feel like he is part of our family now and I am so glad we found him!

Fantastic math tutor

Drew B. has been meeting with my daughter to prepare her thoroughly for the math portions of the SAT and ACT tests. Although I haven't seen her scores yet to see if they improved, my daughter's practice tests have improved significantly, as well as her confidence in her ability and preparedness. Add to that that Drew is excellent inter-personally and professionally, and you have a real winner.

Sarah , 10 lessons with Drew
