About Drew

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.

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.

ACT English

I have over 10 years of experience tutoring various subjects and have worked at least five years preparing students for the English portion of various entrance exams, ranging from SAT and ACT to GRE and ISEE. 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. I strive to ensure understanding of concepts ranging from non-restrictive clauses and appositives to commas and consistency in verb tense.

ACT Math

I have over 10 years of experience tutoring various subjects and have worked at least five years preparing students for the Math portion of various entrance exams, ranging from SAT and ACT to GRE and ISEE. 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. I find myself teaching concepts like equations of circles, Trigonometry, matrices, word problem recognition, and many others!

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.

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.

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.

SAT Math

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. 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.

SAT Writing

I have over 10 years of experience tutoring various subjects and have worked at least five years preparing students for the Writing portion of various entrance exams, ranging from SAT and ACT to GRE and ISEE. 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. 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.
