About Andrea

I love everything about learning - the process, helping others through it, and the satisfaction of that "lightbulb" moment. I believe that each student deserves a personalized approach, centered on connecting to the material at hand through creative strategies, whether they be pneumonic devices, visual aids, or anything else that helps our brains to remember important information.

In addition to my experience tutoring essay writing, biology, and Spanish in high school and college, I have taught group and private clarinet lessons to beginner and intermediate players. My experience as a summer camp counselor and a Residence Hall Counselor has given me the tools to connect with young people and creating a safe space that will help them feel comfortable exploring, making mistakes, and learning from them.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Hispanic Studies, lived in Madrid for 6 months during college, and at my last job, communicated with parents and students in Spanish.

Vassar College puts a strong emphasis on its students' ability to write thoughtfully, clearly, and concisely. All of my undergraduate classes required a thorough understanding of the English language and how to employ it effectively to convey your message.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Music, with a focus on performance. Throughout my time as a music major, I volunteered to teach beginning students at the local middle school and often ran sectionals in our College and Community Wind Ensemble.

I can't wait to get started and learn together. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have about my background. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

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.

Clarinet

I have a Bachelor's degree in Music from Vassar College, where I focused on Clarinet Performance.

I volunteered at the Poughkeepsie Middle School during my time at Vassar to teach group and private beginner lessons.

In high school and in college, I was responsible for leading clarinet sectionals.

Proofreading

During my time working for a music education non-profit in New York City, I was responsible for not only generating written content for our webpage, newsletter, and other organizational communications, but I also proofread and edited all print material written by other employees. This included writing from the Executive Director and Director of Education.

Spanish

I earned a Bachelor's degree from Vassar College in Hispanic Studies. During my junior year, I lived and went to school in Madrid, Spain.
At my last job in New York, I communicated (verbally and through written materials such as letters and emails) with students and parents in Spanish.

Andrea is fabulous. My daughter has been struggling in Spanish. Andrea met with her, assessed the needs, and mapped out a plan to tackle her weak areas one by one. My daughter made so much progress in just one hour! Definitely recommend.
