Hi. First off, thank you for clicking on me. Allow me to tell you a bit about myself. My name is Aaron, and I am currently studying for a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and Mathematics, with minors in Chemistry and English at FIU. I should, if everything goes well, be graduating in December, and I will continue on at FIU until I get a master's degree. After that, I plan on studying applications of differential geometry into the financial field.

I've always been "that guy" who helps fellow classmates study for tests. Having tutored professionally since early 2010 both through the school system and independently, I feel as though I can comfortably say that I enjoy tutoring; and not just because I enjoy teaching, but also because with every new student, and every new question each new student brings, my understanding of the subjects deepens. It truly is as they say, "the best way to learn is to teach." So, as cheesy as it sounds, I tutor because I love to teach and I love to learn. It is the perfect job for someone like me.

When I tutor, I go by the quote, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." The goal is for the student to understand and to be able to solve problems in the subject without my help. The problem is that most of the time, the lower level math teachers don't get the students to understand the material, which leads to confusion in upper level courses. I've found that with a little review, people tend to improve their scores, and more importantly, their understanding, considerably.

If you feel we might be a good fit, please feel free to email me. Thank you for reading my page and I look forward to hearing from you.

P.S. I will discount the rate by 10% for weekday tutoring at FIU MMC SW 8th street campus (that's in addition to the package discounts).

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

Algebra is far too often taught as a set of mysterious formulas. I call this the "black box" effect, because one cannot see inside a black box so one does not know how it works. Similarly, if a student does not understand how an algebraic tool works, he or she is forced to memorize how to use it. If the student learns how it works, no memorization is needed.

Not only is understanding the algebraic rules easier than memorizing them, it also makes mistakes much less likely, and to do otherwise is, quite frankly, missing the point of subjects like Algebra.

Algebra 2

Algebra I and Algebra II are extremely similar with respect to the concepts involved. The problem most students have with Algebra II is that they memorized many of the tool and relations learned in Algebra I. This is a problem that persists through to Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and above! As a matter of fact, I still see this in many of the college students I tutor.

ASVAB

I got a 97% on the ASVAB, and spent 5 years in the US Army.

Calculus

I've taken and received A's in calculus 1, 2, 3, Differential Equations, Advanced Differential Equations, and Advanced Calculus 1. I'm currently taking Advanced Calculus 2.

Differential Equations

I've taken Differential Equations at MDC and Advanced Differential Equations at FIU.

Elementary Math

This is where one's mathematical understanding starts. It is in these first math classes that learning the concepts correctly is so important. If done correctly, math can become not only an easier endeavor, but also a fun one. If introduced properly, math can be a game of puzzles rather than the hair-pulling experience so many dread.

Guitar

I've been playing guitar for a little over 13 years now, and have studied jazz theory for a few years, and about a year of classical guitar. I continue to study music theory on my own.

Linear Algebra

I took Linear Algebra at FIU and received an A. More important than the grade, however, was the wide-spread use that I've seen since then. Linear Algebra really is the basis for Differential Equations, Calculus 3, and so much more in mathematics. Even Google uses Linear Algebra as the meat and potatoes of their search algorithm!

Physics

I've taken university Physics 1 and 2 with calculus (PHY2048 and PHY2049) and received the Physics Award in 2011 from Miami Dade College. I've taken and received A's in Methods in Theoretical Physics, Modern Physics 1 and 2, Classical Mechanics 1 and 2, Solid State Physics, and Thermodynamics at FIU.
