"The most important thing I've learned from tutoring is that energy, empathy and character make a great teacher, far above and beyond mastery of the topics and skills that need teaching.

"I adapt the tutoring approach to the needs of the student and am patient. I enjoy working with students of all levels. I explain the concepts in ways that are easy to understand.

"Hello! My name is Andrea and I have been tutoring students for as long as I can remember. I started with peer tutoring in high school, worked for a tutoring company in college, and continued tutoring individual students after college. I think that the one-on-one attention that tutoring provides students can definitely make the difference between passing and failing. When I tutor, my main goal is to break down convoluted topics to the major concept."
