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 skil
ls, 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 in the future, than when it is taught the standard way.

Secondly, I am well aware of the role test-anxiety and self-doubt plays in the lack of success of some students, so I put a lot of emphasis on the emotional and psychological component of learning and test-taking. With a bachelor's degree in Psychology, I have tools to apply that help students to overcome the debilitating affects of test anxiety, self-doubt, and fear of failure.

Beyond this, I am very personable and can connect with most any student that I teach. I love to help students to learn, and that is readily evident to my students. Some students are intimidated by teachers or tutors who don't know how to connect with the students on a personal level, or how to break things down in a way that makes sense to the student, but that's where I truly excel. Instead of simply repeating myself and wondering why a students doesn't understand a challenging concept, I work to grasp where the breakdown occurs, and then build up from what they do already understand. Through this, I have had unparalleled success throughout my teaching experience, whether it is Math specifically, or Test Prep more generally.

Working with me will not only provide you nearly immediate success, but the effects will carry over well into the future. My teaching is a lifetime investment.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to overcome your challenges to reach your greatest potential.

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.

Bryan S.

Philadelphia, PA

Math is the subject I have most often been asked to teach, from the elementary level through SAT math prep and calculus. No matter what the specific topic is, my core approach is always to break down ideas into ones that a student is familiar with and let them find their way to the answer. It's critical when teaching math to note a student's strengths and weaknesses, because too many students waste time repeatedly practicing problems without recognizing what makes the problem difficult for them.

About Bryan

I have been tutoring for over a decade, and few things are as satisfying seeing the look of excited understanding on a student's face. I focus on comprehension because I believe that improved performance on tests should come from a deeper understanding of the material being taught, and customize my tutoring to match the needs of each individual.

In addition to being a tutor, I am an attorney, a caller and organizer for contra and blues dances, and managing member of a community-service driven cooperative living community.

Adam has great experience with Excel. We talked about the problems that I was having and he immediately showed me how to do it and some shortcuts. He's flexible with scheduling so I setup a series of lessons immediately. I would recommend Adam for your business training needs.

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.
