About Drew

I have many years of experience as a tutor, working at various universities, companies, and even privately. I have been working with Wyzant for some five years now. 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. I am always inundated with students hoping to prepare for and improve scores on PSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, and GED.

I recently finished my studies at the University of Texas at Dallas, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. I live, along with my wife and 8-year-old daughter, in Van Alstyne, Texas - a small town just north of McKinney. My wife is a Tennis Pro coaching many handfuls of students both privately and in groups. I have traveled with my family quite a bit, both in the United States and abroad. I have visited nearly every state in the United States, except distant states like Hawaii and Alaska. Oh, wait - we just visited Alaska for the first time this summer! I even lived a few years with my family in Mexico. My siblings and I had a great opportunity to see much of the world. My wife is from abroad, too - Cape Town, South Africa. We met here in Texas, but we went to Cape Town to be married. We lived there for some time, until shortly after our daughter was born. 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, though I am definitely better with the guitar. Between work, school, and family, those times do not come frequently. But I enjoy what I do, especially having the satisfaction of helping others 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.

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.

Chemistry

I am taking some final classes at UT Dallas to complete my degree in Biochemistry. As a Biochemistry major, I have been exposed to and mastered many advanced chemistry concepts.

ESL/ESOL

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.
