Featured Review:

## A very caring and passionate tutor.

Dan, 70 lessons with AndrewI met Andrew about a year ago through Wyzant through a classmate that recommended this young man. I was skeptical at first, due to this being a virtual interaction and the complexity of the subject we were learning. I was coming into our first tutor session very intimidated by math and even more scared of word problems. If you know anything about physics, their are two certainties, lots of math and tons of word problems! Andrew and I met at least three times a week and when things were...

I am a graduate of Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Physics. I have completed a master’s and I am currently working on a Ph.D. in physics at the University of Vermont with an emphasis on Math, Chemistry, and Theoretical/Computational Physics. I love learning and work hard when teaching new things to my students. I not only want to help them learn their desired subject I want to show them how to become better learners in all aspects. It is my goal to pass my...

Computer Programming,
#### Computer Programming

I am a Bachelor of Physics with minors in both Mathematics and Computer Science. Computer Science has been a helpful piece of all those studies. Math and Physics assignments regularly required the writing of code. I tutored many Physics and Math students in my classes when they needed help writing code for their assignments. I have taken many computer science classes and have experience building Ray Tracers, Song Sorting Algorithms and particle accelerator simulations.

Java
#### Java

Computer Science has been a helpful piece of all those studies. Math and Physics assignments regularly required the writing of code. Most of that code was Java code due to its ease of use. I tutored many Physics and Math students in my classes when they needed help writing code for their assignments and most of that was also java code. Java was my first programming language and I have deep knowledge of said language.

Elementary Math
#### Elementary Math

I have a Bachelor of Science with a Major in Physics with a Minor in Mathematics. Elementary Math is very familiar to me and a core part of my mathematical background. I have tutored younger students for 6 months after i graduated college. However I have tutored for 4+ years and did so throughout my entire college career. I also had the Pleasure of working with Young kids when I volunteered for the Little Shop of Physics program for 3.5 years.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I have a Bachelors in Physics with minors in both Mathematics and Computer Science. All of those fields are incredibly math heavy and require the constant use of Algebra to succeed. In addition I have 4+ years of tutoring experience tutoring Calculus and Physics. Both these subjects use Algebra as as one of the fundamentals. Due to this I am well versed in the topics of Algebra and their practical applications.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

Algebra II is one of the foundations for all of Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science. I am required to have a deep understanding based on my background. I have 6+ years of tutoring math and physics and Algebra II as included in that experience. Algebra II was the first subject I started tutoring and have continued tutoring to this day.

Calculus,
#### Calculus

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Biophysics with applications to Advanced Mathematics. My Work as a Research assistant requires the constant use of advanced calculus to succeed. In addition, I have 6+ years of tutoring experience tutoring Calculus and Physics. Calculus and Physics were my most tutored subjects in college for students of all backgrounds, majors, and levels.

Chemistry,
#### Chemistry

Theoretical Biophysics is the blending of Physics, Engineering, Mathematics, and Organic Chemistry. I didn't specialize in chemistry as an undergraduate but I started tutoring chemistry during my last years as an undergraduate. I gained much greater experience when I joined the Biophysics Research Program. I had to take courses in chemistry and molecular dynamics and my research project required me to learn about advanced theoretical chemistry and thermodynamics. My experience as a physicist also gives me extensive experience in the quantum mechanical aspects of physical chemistry. I approach chemistry from the perspective of a mathematician and a physicist and that changes the way I solve problems and find solutions. Rather than doing things procedurally, I think deeply about them to give them a simpler and more approachable foundation.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

I have a Bachelor of Physics with minors in both Mathematics and Computer Science. Geometry is one of my favorite subjects and a subject I pursued heavily while getting my minor in mathematics. Differential Geometry, Complex Analysis and other subjects are all heavily based on geometry and extending it. With my background I have a deep understanding of geometry and how it connects to other subjects. I have 4+ years of tutoring experience in mathematics and geometry is one of my strongest subjects.

Physics,
#### Physics

I am a physics Ph.D. Candidate with a focus on Theoretical Physics. This experience has honed my skills and developed advanced problem-solving techniques across various disciplines. I work as a Teaching Assistant and Research Assistant. I served on the Active Learning Design team for the Physics Department at my University where I helped design courses and training for all the other TAs. Additionally, while I was in the Physics Department at my alma mater I helped Manage the Teaching Laboratories for Undergraduate physics students. This required intimate knowledge of physics Experiments. I have 8+ years of tutoring experience in physics with formal tutoring through the physics department for 2.5 of those years and I have been teaching on Wyzant for 4 years and working as a Teaching Assistant at my University for 2 additional years.

Prealgebra,
#### Prealgebra

I have a Bachelor in Physics with a Minor in mathematics and Minor in computer Science. The topics covered within pre-algebra are at the core of all of those subjects and are topics i am intimately familiar with. I have 4+ years of tutoring experience for math and physics and pre-algebra was not an uncommon subject that was requested for our non-major physics students. This was especially true for art, medical and business majors.

Precalculus
#### Precalculus

I have a Bachelors in Physics with a minor in Mathematics. Precalculus is one of the fundamentals fields of mathematics that I know very well and have a solid foundation of. The ideas of Precalculus begin in introductory physics courses and continue when the student is preparing to take calculus. I have 4+ years tutoring physics and calculus and inevitably Precalculus was a subject that regularly needed reinforcing or reviewing because students often forgot those ideas and that would make physics and calculus harder unless it was reviewed.

Trigonometry
#### Trigonometry

Trigonometry was arguably one of the most used subjects in those three fields. Trigonometry is at the foundation of mechanics, optics, geometry, ray tracing, graphics, electromagnetism and even quantum mechanics. The study of angles, triangles and circles are hugely important and were one of the subjects that most students struggled with outside of calculus. Other than calculus Trigonometry was my most tutored math subject during my 4+ years of tutoring. This was often in conjunction with the physics or calculus tutoring.

## Great tutor for my son

Andrew has been patient and helpful. He is clearly concerned about my son learning and growing. Thanks, Andrew. Andrew has been great. I'm supposed to have at least 160 characters so I have to keep typing. Now I will try to submit again.

John, 3 lessons with Andrew

## Great tutor, very knowledgeable

Andrew knows his stuff and goes above and beyond, for example with a problem that had many solutions he did work at home and sent it to us!!

Joanne, 11 lessons with Andrew

Many thanks to Andrew for working with us on Pre-calc, Physics, and general math. Our student has benefited from practical coursework exercises and repetition and friendly coaching. Can recommend Andrew without reservation.

Cyndi, 111 lessons with Andrew

## A great tutor

He was very thorough and detail-oriented. My son really enjoyed sessions with him. Because his major is Physics, he had a different way to approach algebra. He teaches very logical and approachable ways to solve algebra problems.

## Knowledgeable, Organized, & Helpful Tutor

Andrew has been my Physics 101 (both lecture and lab sections) tutor during the Summer Semester. Since my Physics course is online, it’s been a bit harder to do and actually understand the homework and/or labs. I’ve had previous tutors who did not know how to solve problems and wasted a half hour to hour during an actual session! But not Andrew - luckily I found him! Andrew is very organized and knowledgeable. He tells you in advance his schedule so that you can prepare and plan ahead. I love the fact that he asks me questions first, instead of giving me answers. It helps me to make sure I understand the concepts before he explains it himself. He has been really helpful with my lab assignments. Andrew is a quick responder and even helps when I have a few questions that doesn’t require a full hour session. You’ll invest your time & money well with him - thanks so much, Andrew!

Samantha, 4 lessons with Andrew

## Very Knowledgeable and easy to understand

Andrew always helps me a lot, I have had many lessons with him and I am always happy I did. He makes learning math much easier. I was concerned about the online learning and it turns out to be no problem. Thanks Andrew!
