My name is Andie and I'm energized to support parents and students by providing Math tutoring services modeling a good balance of creativity and organization. I embrace each student and approach learning strategies specific to what will work best for them. My goal as a tutor is to create a safe learning space to create academic confidence.
Obsessed with data and organization, I meticulously tracked and analyzed engagement and learning targets with a resourceful and strategic mindset. Committed to promoting a working culture modeled with professionalism and kind humor, I consistently exercised enthusiasm for creativity balanced with strict execution of day-to-day learning standards.
Throughout my 2 years of teaching Math with Teach For America, I eagerly: learned an entire new industry and profession, attended professional development series twice a quarter, became credentialed to teach in the state of California, and enthusiastically committed to receiving my Masters in Urban Education, Policy and Legislation. I am confident in my ability to see the big picture and how all the moving pieces connect together, while simultaneously magnifying my attention to detail to be meticulous with every action.
