I have been serving Utah as a tutor and mentor for seven years. I'm efficient, intelligent and driven with proven commitment to excellence. I have vast experience, patience and innate ability to connect with kids from all backgrounds and academic levels. I have a solid knowledge of "common core" Utah standards. I would be happy to help your kids with curriculum, test/quiz preparations, and earn top grades not only at the school level, but at the district level. Prior students have won prizes in science and math competitions and surged from F to B or A in a matter of weeks. I have helped over a hundred high school students fulfill their dreams in gaining admissions, tuition waivers, and scholarships at leading universities. I would gladly work with middle-school and high school special needs kids including those with Asperger's and ADD. I offer in-person as well as online sessions. Ask me about pricing for math, science, and language weekend bootcamps.

Andy has worked skillfully with my 3 teenage sons who are on the autism spectrum. One of my boys also has ADHD. Andy has been a tremendous support for the boys as they navigate online school. His guidance and calm manner has helped ease their usual anxiety about school, and all 3 boys are thriving. I highly recommend Andy. He has been a blessing for the boys and me.

Science Graduate Researcher Passionate About Student Success

I teach hundreds of students every semester. With degrees in physics and mathematics, and minors in biology and computer science, I became an interdisciplinary science graduate student at Arizona State University (ASU), where I completed a Master's Degree in Bio-Electrical Engineering. I seek to undo the damage and negative effects students often suffer/endure from poor teaching practices. I strive to replace this distaste with a passion for the fundamentals of the subjects, just as a long line of teachers have done for me. I am constantly researching new ways, and inventing new tools, to teach. Currently, I am writing a book that will make these creative teaching ideas available and inspire further progression in education. Please contact me for professional, high-quality, state of the art tutoring. My extensive background knowledge of how language, art, and science intertwine allows me to appropriately teach children or college graduate students. Here is a brief summary of my teaching experience: 1. Private Math, Science, Language, and Writing instructor and tutor: 14+ years. 2. Over the past 14 years I've developed a specialty helping students with disabilities and learning disorders, most especially (I have extensive experience with) ADHD, but also Dyslexia, Anxiety, Autism, Spectrum Disorders, OCD, OCPD, PTSD, Vision Impairment, and others. 3. Math & Science Tutor Staff: (a) 6 months as a volunteer in a Chandler-Gilbert Community College (CGCC) tutoring center. (b) One year as an employee in CGCC tutoring center. 4. Mentor for Wildcat Middle School 8th Grade Science Classes. 5. Physics Student Mentor - I assisted incoming freshmen students with their transition to the University of Arizona (UA) physics department. 6. Physics Factory Assistant - Helped UA math professor perform exciting science demonstrations and experiments for visiting junior high students. 7. Physics Undergraduate Council - I assist with the retention of UA physics undergrads by offering support and guidance. Represent the interests and needs of these students when meeting with the department head and faculty. 8. My family used to run a summer school for kids. As a teenager, I was a (fun) math teacher for 3 months every summer! 9. I come from a long line of teachers. My mother, both of her parents, and their parents dedicated their lives to education and teaching. 10. I have also tutored foreign students (Italian, Indian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Spanish) in English pronunciation, writing, accent reduction, et cetera. 11. Graduate Teaching Associate: 3 years. I currently teach hundreds of undergraduate students each semester at Arizona State University, while working on a book about science education, with aspirations to become a college teacher and educator.
