Andrew's Bio

In high school, Drew won a school-wide poetry contest as a freshman and graduated valedictorian. He earned his bachelor's in international relations with minors in German and history from the University of Delaware, graduating summa cum laude. He proceeded immediately to graduate school, earning a master's in democracy and governance from Georgetown University.

Drew began tutoring in graduate school, when he taught a woman German to help her prepare for a move to Germany. "I loved seeing her make strides in her German language skills, and I enjoyed everything about our lessons, including preparing them to make them fun yet instructive," he says. Because of this experience, he decided to shadow a college professor, launching a career in education.

He interned as a teaching and editorial assistant for a professor of English and Communication at Delaware County Community College. In 2013, he began teaching American government courses at DCCC. In addition to classroom teaching, he covers a range of political issues for the Independent Voter Network as a freelance writer and tutors students in academic subjects, test preparation, and writing.

As a writing tutor, he helps students with essays, creative assignments, research projects, business reports, literary analyses, and cover letters and resumes. He provides feedback on main ideas, content, organization, and grammar.

Drew has tutored for our sister company, StudyPoint, since 2013. He works with students on the PSAT, SAT, and ACT, as well as math. "Many of my students saw impressive gains after our time together learning the material and testing strategies," he says.

Drew describes himself as "affable and sympathetic," and finds that his natural style of making students at ease helps them learn best. "Teaching and learning should be a fluid interaction, not a stiff exchange or mechanic transmission of information," Drew says. "I get to know my students first as individuals with their own skills, quirks, and interests. Once we build rapport, students feel much more at ease, which allows them to open up about what they need to work on to meet their goals."

In high school, Drew played soccer all four years. In college, he played several sports in intramural leagues. These days, he is still involved in sports, playing soccer, football, basketball, volleyball, and tennis. He also likes to read, write, and cook spicy foods. He enjoys travel and has been to 10 countries.
