Hello, my name is Andrew! I am a scientist and PhD student at Arizona State University studying Evolutionary Biology. My main interests are the evolution and mechanical properties of the insect exoskeleton. I also earned my Master's Degree in Biology at ASU, and I described 10 species of weevil (snout beetle) that were completely new to science. As part of my degree program, I have taught several different science classes. One of my favorite parts of being a doctoral student has been teaching and working one-on-one with students. To me, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing something 'click' for a student.
My interdisciplinary training in biology and materials science has taught me how to communicate complex subjects in a way that anyone can understand. I am available to tutor a variety of subjects in mathematics and biology, and I can also help my students prepare for both the verbal and quantitative sections of the GRE. I look forward to working with you!
