About Andrew

I am excited to help a student achieve success in any class in which he/she is struggling. I am a certified math teacher, currently teaching Algebra I, Discrete Math and Prob/Stat at Atlee High School in Mechanicsville. In May 2013, I graduated from Virginia Tech with a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. During graduate school, I had an assistantship where I tutored freshmen engineers and athletes in Calculus AB and Calculus BC. I held weekly tutoring sessions to answer questions and reteach confusing Calculus concepts.

In addition, I graduated from Virginia Tech in May 2012 with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics with a concentration in Mathematics Education. I would love to help students who are struggling in any subject ranging from Pre-Algebra to Calculus BC. These courses include Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trig/Math Analysis, Pre-Calculus, Calculus AB and Calculus BC and all IB math courses. I am willing to tutor in Differential Equations, Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra as well.

I have experience teaching for Louisa County Public Schools and substitute teaching for Fairfax County Public Schools as a math teacher and I tutored at Blacksburg Middle School and Blacksburg High School for fun while in college. Through my required student internships and student teaching, I have worked with students on Geometry, Algebra I, Algebra II, Trigonometry and Calculus. I am willing to help in any subject and have experience teaching every level.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra 1 for three years and have continually worked with the lowest ability students. I am willing to work with any type of learner!

Algebra 2

I have experience teaching Algebra 2 in a professional setting and have tutored students in it before.

Differential Equations

Since I studied Mathematics at Virginia Tech, I was required to take Differential Equations. I took the class in 2010 and received an A in it as my final grade. I understand the concepts we went over and am willing to help the students who struggle with the material.

Discrete Math

I have taken courses on Discrete math while at Virginia Tech. In addition, I currently teach Discrete Math at a local high school. This Discrete Math course is a semester long course where we talk about Voting Theory, Fair Division, Euler Circuits and many more fun content activities.

Geometry

A certified math teacher
Tutored in Geometry multiple times

Linear Algebra

I have taken linear algebra at Virginia Tech as a requirement for my math major. I did very well in the class and I am very comfortable working with matrices and vectors to help solve problems. My class was online, so most of the material was self-taught, but I actually received tutoring in the class as well while taking it and my tutor helped me understand it in an applicable and effective way. Since I have this experience in the class, I believe I can help the students who are taking this class in an effective and applicable way as well.

Logic

I have taken courses in logic since middle school, so I am familiar with all the different types of fallacies and types of arguments that can be to be invalid or valid. I also have taken math courses in high school and at Virginia Tech that have used logic extensively in some lessons. I believe that with my experience and knowledge of the subject matter, I can help students who are struggling to grasp concepts and ideals of logic.

Precalculus

I have experience teaching Pre-calc at the high school level and have tutored plenty of students in it at the college level.

Probability

Due to being involved in many math courses and recently a few statistics courses, I have become familiar with probability and how to calculate probability based on given terms. My knowledge of the subject matter has helped me to achieve good grades in the classes in which probability is involved, most recently with statistics course. I believe I can help students who are struggling to understand probability and how to calculate it.

SAT Math

Have experience tutoring high school juniors with Sat math. Received tutoring from Kaplan prep and have incorporated some of their strategies into my own tutoring.
