Andrew I.

Philadelphia, PA

About Andrew

Teaching and tutoring has been my calling from early in life. It started with tutoring my friends, up to when I was hired through my high school Calculus class to tutor 10th grade Geometry students. Since then, I've taught GRE, ACT and SAT prep and I've been a classroom mathematics teacher (from 7th grade to 12th grade) for almost a decade. I have two specialties that make me fairly unique in the domain of Mathematics and Test Prep teaching and tutoring: First, I help students to understand the topic on a much deeper and more interesting level, by connecting it to related topics and skills, providing historical background, and elaborating on how it's been used and how it's currently used. This makes the material much more interesting, and, hence, much more likely to be recalled it ...

GRE · In studio
Since he is an experienced teacher, I invited Andy to speak to my graduate students in the teacher certification program at Temple University. He was very well received. Andy spoke to the pre-service teachers about classroom management, adolescent development, and test anxiety. His presentation was well organized and engaging, and the students learned much from his words of wisdom and concrete examples from urban teaching.

Andy has been working with our middle-school-aged son this summer, to help him prepare for a challenging Algebra I class next school year. We didn't want to overwhelm our son with endless lessons, so we prioritized finding a tutor who would tailor both his teaching style and the material for optimal understanding. Andy did exactly that. He rapidly got to know our son's learning style, motivations, and concerns-- and structured his lessons to complement them. Andy's deep understanding of math pedagogy enabled him to devise a novel teaching plan that has previewed key algebra concepts with our son, laying a firm conceptual foundation and boosting our son's confidence as the school year approaches.

As parents we are also grateful for Andy's accessibility via telephone and email to discuss our son's progress. He has thoughtfully incorporated our input and input from our son's future schoolteacher.

We are also delighted that our son enjoys his tutoring sessions with Andy, and looks forward to his visits! We highly recommend Andy and are glad that we found him.

Mr. Andrew is an exceptional educator that truly cares about the success of his students. Our daughter was part of his SAT prep
class the summer before her senior year. Mr. Andrew
gave her the skills she needed to improve her test score by more than 200 points. But more importantly than her test score she was confident and comfortable before taking the test. Mr. Andrew provided her with really good insight into what the test preparers were looking for and help to fine tune skills that she has worked during her early high school years. We are proud to say our daughter was accepted at all four of the schools she applied to. She was accepted early decision to Drexel University and will be a freshman there in merely 34 days!!!

Thank you Mr. Andrew we couldn't have done it without you.

Verified Student
Adam was great. I signed up for lessons to be more efficient working with microsoft excel, specifically using formulas to digest and interpret data sets. (lookup, pivot tables.. etc) We were able to meet at a Starbucks for 4 90 minute lessons. I was very impressed with Adam's understanding of Microsoft Excel, but was most impressed with his ability to teach the program. I went in asking to learn 2 specific formulas, but came out with a well rounded understanding of Excel, and began to understand how the program "thinks".
As for my level of Excel, after one lesson I was using the formulas Adam taught at work the very next day.

I would recommend Adam to ANYONE looking to brush up on excel for use of a specific formula, or if you are like me, to learn how to use it everyday.

Paul G.

Bryn Mawr, PA

I have been teaching Math for over 4 years and excelled at the subject in high school, having passed the AP Calculus exam as a high school senior. The curriculum with me would be whatever the student needed help with, such as his or her homework. My teaching goals are not necessarily to do the problems the quickest but to garner an overall understanding of the material. My teaching style has always been to have the student participate in the learning experience! I look forward to helping out!

About Paul

Hey Guys! My name is Paul, and I graduated from The George Washington University in 2010 with a Bachelor's degree in Economics. After acquiring a job in finance upon graduation, I decided to pursue further education, this time in the field of Computer Science. This post-baccalaureate training has allowed me to acquire more satisfying opportunities than I had available to me previously. Consequently, my knowledge-base in software development and in mathematical areas has grown prominently. To talk of my tutoring experience, since 2011, I have tutored for several prominent tutoring companies. Most recently, the 2 nationwide companies that I tutor for include Next Step Test Prep and Catalyst Prep. I have worked with hundreds of kids at improving their approach and strategy to ...

Java · Online
Professor Paul is very helpful and motivating. I took online class with him because I was working full time. I was a beginner in Java programming and he taught me like a beginner by being very patient and supportive. He provided me feedback for my work and helped me with every line of code. Because of him, I am able to get a good grasp of Java (which I really feared taking) as I am weak in Computer Science and Math. He will push his students to think harder and LEARN what they want to. He is smart and very polite. Overall, I had great experience learning online JAVA with him and I learned a lot about JAVA. No fear of java anymore!!

ACT · In home
I'm a high school student that is preparing to take both the SATs and the ACTs. Paul helped me across all areas on these tests and I felt very confident taking the tests. I have a busy schedule and Paul was able to work with me to figure out what I could accomplish each week in preparation for our sessions. I feel totally comfortable challenging him on certain questions and asking him to further explain some answers if I don't fully understand. Overall, Paul is a great tutor that truly wants his students to succeed.

GMAT · In studio
So my situation was that I wanted to go to Duke's MBA program and needed at least a 710 on my GMAT. So I saw Paul was a student favorite on take lessons for the GMAT and he was in my area so I used him. He had gret quant and verbal strategies, like creating a table for the data sufficiency problems. Overall, Paul was able to raise my score by 70 points! I was so relieved.

Matt C.

Philadelphia, PA

I work with math students in curricula ranging from basic math through algebra who are either struggling with the subject, or looking to fine-tune their ability. With a background in engineering, math has become another language with which to communicate. I tend towards an analogical approach to the subject, so students can view it in a different, more practical light.

About Matt

I am a tutor and guitar teacher in Philadelphia's Center City region who focuses on creative approaches to education. Having graduated from Penn State University with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering, I am able to teach a variety of math-intensive and writing subjects. Along with my engineering education, my past experiences include charity work, theater, choirs, and solo/collaborative musical performance. I believe that a student's own creativity can be utilized for any type of learning, including subjects which are often considered to be more rigid in their structure.

Excellent teacher. Just wanted to recover lost progress after a long absence from the guitar, but Matt's instruction actually took my play to the next level, with clear and focused lessons from a patient and accomplished teacher. Highly recommended.

Nicholas K.

Ardmore, PA

Teaching math is one of my most enjoyable hobbies. When I work one-on-one with my students, I find it a lot easier for them to progress, because they are getting the attention they need. I plan to use a textbook to guide our tutoring sessions, but I will not only rely on that. I will explain concepts and equations in detail, to assure they understand it, and then create real life scenarios involving the concepts that my students have learned. I've found through experience that relativity keeps students motivated and interested.

About Nicholas

My name is Nicholas and I am a physics major and education and math minor at Clark University. I just finished my first year of college and I am tutoring over the summer, doing curriculum math and SAT/ACT math. I've been an assistant teacher at public schools before, teaching 10th grade math, and I have done one-on-one math work with other students. I am looking to bring enthusiasm to my tutoring, and try to bring relevance into math, because through my experience I've learned that students remain interested in a subject if they see relativity. Thank you for your time!
