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.
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 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.
I got a 97% on the ASVAB, and spent 5 years in the US Army.
I've taken Differential Equations at MDC and Advanced Differential Equations at FIU.
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!
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 Methods in Theoretical Physics, Modern Physics 1, and Thermodynamics at FIU.
This semester I will be taking Modern Physics 2, along with Solid State Physics (as far as physics goes) at FIU.
Highly "knowledgeable in math", very patient and caring about student's academic progress. — Aaron is very professional, exhibits great knowledge in math, very patient and easy going, encourages and challenges student in a positive manner, and shows sincere dedication for his student's learning and monitors progress. It has been a blessing finding him in this site he has truly made my son advance in his mathematical skills. I would highly recommend him to any parent that is looking for ...
