Andrew first discovered his passion for teaching as early as middle school, when he started helping his friends with math in exchange for home-cooked meals. Andrew took on his first full time tutoring role during a gap year from Columbia, during which he lived with a family in Hawaii and mentored their son until his eventual acceptance into Brown University’s combined undergrad/med school PLME program. Andrew’s immersive work experience in Hawaii spurred him to develop his passion for tutoring into a career, and he now works primarily with high school students in all subjects.
While his teaching style varies to suit every student’s unique needs, Andrew teaches material from both a technical and a Plain English perspective, allowing his students to understand their material systematically and intuitively. Andrew takes pride not only in his ability to help his students exceed their academic goals, but also in his role as a mentor, helping his students find themselves amidst the challenges of school and life.
As a former Division 1 swimmer, Andrew embraces an active lifestyle in his personal life, finding time in his schedule to train for marathons, hone his surfing skills, and play a little pick-up basketball with old friends. His love for the water steered him towards his current volunteer role, in which he runs the SAT tutoring program and works as a guest swim coach for the Trident Swim Foundation. Combined with the commitment of raising his 10-month-old puppy, Andrew is busy but happy, and he looks forward to many more years doing work that he loves.
