Andy WyrtzenOwner/Certified Instructor
Andy received his Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of Delaware in 1999 and has taught in some capacity for the past fifteen years. For the first five years he taught sixth grade in public school, while earning his Master’s Degree in Education. He then transitioned to teaching Physical Education at St. John’s Academy and earned his plus thirty credits in the areas of physical education, health, and driver’s education.
It was at this point that he was introduced to behind-the-wheel education and teaching individuals how to drive. He has long enjoyed driving (he drives a lot) and has a good sense of direction and time management. His history with driving and experience working with children make him a skilled driving instructor. He believes that it is important for a driving instructor to understand that every student learns differently. Everyone possesses different driving abilities and unique personalities, which is why it is important to tailor the learning experience to the needs of each student.
Andy has taught driving instruction for over five years, working with established driving schools in Central New Jersey beginning in 2010. After a year and a half, he expanded his client base to include Bergen County. He focuses on his former students from St. John’s Academy and that has led to teaching many other teenagers from Bergen County. His goal has been to own and operate a driving school that will prepare students with the skills and knowledge they will need in order to master the roads of New Jersey and beyond.
