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.

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 compan
ies. 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 standardized tests. I like to keep tutoring as progressive and forward-thinking as possible, and as almost all of my students will testify, they improved substantially after going through a tutoring course with me!

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!!

About Sheryl

Hello, my name is Sheryl and I knew that I would become a teacher since the age of 12. I have been retired for two years after a successful career from the School District of Philadelphia. I have also been tutoring for the past seven years. I continue to tutor because my passion is still teaching and helping students achieve academically. My demeanor is one of patience and I am able to break down learning to the bare components when needed.

importance of using various mediums that can assist in the learning process. My one goal is to help my students reach success. I look forward to experiencing an exciting journey of learning with my next client.

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!
