About Andy

I'm an easygoing, retired math and English teacher with 29 years of experience teaching in Vermont public schools. I've successfully taught A.P. Calculus, A.P. Statistics, A.P. English, and SAT prep, as well as all high school math courses from basic algebra through geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus and beyond. I enjoy math and math history, and believe in its importance, and I have a number of hobbies, including music, and I'm patient and get along well with students at all levels. I understand that not everybody feels comfortable with math, and I adapt to students' individual learning styles. I'm married with four grown children, each pursuing an enjoyable career.

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'm a retired Vermont high school math teacher, and I'm very experienced teaching Algebra 1, as well as all other high school mathematics courses, including A.P. Calculus. Last semester, I served three days a week at a local Vermont high school helping students one-on-one with homework and test preparation in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Statistics, and Calculus. I'm a friendly, easygoing teacher, and I understand the difficulties many students experience in starting to learn about variables, equations, and factoring in Algebra 1. I'd be happy to tutor your student.

Algebra 2

I'm qualified by WyzAnt to teach algebra 2 as one of my subjects.

Calculus

I have taught A.P. Calculus for many years in Vermont public high schools with excellent success rates among my students. Mostly I have taught the AB level course, but I have also had experience teaching BC level calculus. As I tell my students, calculus is a very practical branch of mathematics because it is the mathematical study of change, and since everything in our world changes constantly, there are important applications of calculus in many fields.

Finite Math

I taught Finite Math for several years at Johnson State College. I am familiar with the topics in the course. These include probability, matrix operations, systems of equations, and mathematics of finance. We also did some linear programming.

Geometry

I have taught high school Geometry for many years in Vermont public schools, including both classical Euclidean Geometry with proofs and applied and interactive geometry. It is one of my favorite subjects to teach, as it involves both practical applications and universal principles of logic. For some students, including myself, Geometry has been a "breakthrough" subject that opens up a rewarding world of mathematical problem-solving.

GRE

I'm qualified by WyzAnt to tutor for the GRE.

Precalculus

I am qualified by WyzAnt to tutor Precalculus as well as several other mathematics courses.

SAT Math

I am qualified to teach SAT Math.

Trigonometry

I'm qualified by WyzAnt to teach trigonometry. I have taught trigonometry for many years as a Vermont public high school teacher and at the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth during the summer and as an adjunct instructor at Johnson State College. I have also taught trigonometry for a private academy in Vermont.
