Knowledgeable and dedicated tutor who goes above and beyond.
I had my last semester in college and had to take a lot of credits before I graduate. Andrew has helped me a lot on my Econ and regulation class. We had several sessions over Skype during which, he helped me to work on the outline for my final paper. My professor was tough, so I had present some really smart ideas in content. We did very well brainstorming together and wrote an outline for the paper. It saved me a lot of time. I had to only to develop and fill in the outline with already discussed things. Second time he helped me when I had to do an assignment for my other Econ class. I was running late on deadline this time. Andrew traveled to Fairfax and we had another couple of sessions in person. He is very professional and dedicated to the work. Instead of assigned hour he stayed with me for the three and half (!) hours till we finished the work. It meant to me a lot! He went above and beyond while helping me with the assignment. Thanks a lot to him I finally graduated. Talking about the level of knowledge in Economics, he knows Econ well. I would definitely recommend him as an Econ tutor. Very knowledgeable, helpful, professional and dedicated.Aizhan, 3 lessons with Andrew
Fantastic Skype Tutor
I had the pleasure of working with Andrew over Skype on a paper for my Criminal Justice class. While I was initially hesitant to work on the paper over Skype, Andrew's professionalism put me at ease. He is by far the best tutor I have ever had. I felt confident and proud of my paper when I handed it in. I have recommended him to all my friends. If you need professional quality help with any subject reach out to Andrew.Louis, 9 lessons with Andrew
Excellent GRE prep, focus in math, with Andrew
Before I signed up for 8 sessions of GRE math tutoring with Andrew, I had selected a textbook prep course to better prepare myself for the exam in hopes of scoring higher to qualify for a potential scholarship into a PhD program. My biggest challenge was the math portion and, specifically on a timed test, I knew I would struggle with the concepts, calculations and overall pressure of the quantitative sections in particular. I selected Andrew as my tutor given his current pursuits, his availability and the quickness with which he responded to my original request. I was grateful that he was already familiar with the methodology of the prep course I had chosen. I have always struggled a bit with math - my frustration may have been evident during a couple of our sessions - and though I'm not planning to study math at the graduate level, I had to be successful. Andrew showed me the ins and outs of how the exam tries to trick or trip up a test taker and specific problem types upon which to focus. He gave me resources to use to practice the test and homework assignments, and consistently reassured me that I would do just fine. When I took the test, I was shocked at how well I had done on both sections. I definitely exceeded my expectations, and I sent my scores to my top school choices without hesitation. Thanks so much for 8 worthwhile hours of tutelage!Kasey, 10 lessons with Andrew
