Bio:
I have quite a bit of experience as a teacher, tutor, and trainer in a variety of areas. Through high school and college I was a math tutor and have been tutoring roughly 20 hours each week as a hobby since August 2013. I have worked with at least 10 different students in all major mathematics classes starting with Algebra through Advanced Calculus. I have worked with many college students exclusively during finals weeks to help cram for exams but most of my students I meet with on a weekly or biweekly basis.

My father has been a high school teacher in math, physics and astronomy in the Stevens Point area for over 30 years, so I grew up learning things from him, and gaining teaching prowess. I am planning on pursuing a Ph.D. in economics, but I am taking a year off to focus on research, and to support my significant other as she begins her Ph.D. program in clinical psychology.

While in college, I have spent two years as the chess coach at the high school level, which included working with 10-15 students 2-3 times weekly. I also was the president of the economics club at my college for two years, and I did a lot of peer tutoring in economics and mathematics.

My tutoring method is simple - Teaching to make connections to things that students currently understands will increase their confidence, which is key in math and science. Teaching the process, and using repetition in mathematics will also help increase confidence and understanding. I am good at adapting to different learning styles which I have researched extensively to help my career in business, and am confident I can be successful teaching any of my areas of expertise.

Business

I was a business major in college, and switched that to economics, but I've taken what would be considered a business minor. Also I ran my own marketing business for two summers. I tutored business informally at the college level.

Chess

I was a chess coach for 2 years at Stevens Point Area Senior High. I won the state chess championship in 2007 for division 3, and competed for 2 years in high school chess in Wisconsin. I have a USCF membership rating of 1108 (as of a long time ago), my online ratings are around 1650.

Differential Equations

I took differential equations in college, and continued to take a more advanced calculus class above that. I am very comfortable with differential equations and feel that I could tutor it, as I have tutored peers in my program in the past.

Econometrics

In this course I got an A. Aside from that, I'm very familiar with Stata and Excel and using those to run regressions and even do macroeconomic projections. I'm planning on graduate school in economics, and have written various papers that use econometric methods to answer tough questions. I also was a math major, and took actuarial classes with some econometric emphasis.

Linear Algebra

I've taken and received an A- in both Linear Algebra and Intermediate Linear algebra. It was my favorite class that I took in my Math major, and I would feel very comfortable tutoring it. I tutored this subject informally with peers in the math center on campus.

Logic

I took symbolic logic in college and received an A. I also had other philosophy classes that taught logic and feel comfortable teaching the subject. I tutored for symbolic logic, via the introduction to advanced math class that was a requirement for the math major. I've written many proofs both in math and philosophy and taught how to do so.

Marketing

I received an A in marketing in my college class. I also ran a marketing branch office for two summer breaks for Vector Marketing and have exposure to real world applications. I would feel very comfortable teaching principles of marketing, as I have tutored other business classes.

Education

UW - Stevens Point

Great Tutor for Tests — Aaron really helped me out a lot to prepare me for a standardized test. Usually when studying for a test, I do it on my own. However having someone to guide me and give me great tips made me feel more confident once the test came. Aaron is really patient and good at explaining concepts. I would highly recommend him if you are planning on taking a standardized test that includes a math section. ...
