About Aaron

I have over four years of experience teaching math and three years of experience tutoring math. I have a Math degree from the University of Rochester. I was a Math TA for 2.5 years at Rochester, including two years of Calculus. At Ohio State, I was also a Math TA and tutor for two years. I'm a current grad student at Arizona.

I have experience working with students with a variety of backgrounds. Whether you want short-term or long-term help, I can help you become more confident with the material.

When working with a student, I first try to determine what the student knows so I can tailor my efforts to that student and make the tutoring sessions more efficient. I also like to construct problems specifically to target areas of difficulty for my students instead of just using problems from various textbooks. I try to keep my students as engaged in the material as possible so they can become confident in doing problems themselves -- after all, I believe the best way to learn math is by doing problems.

Classes I have taught include Calculus I, II, and III; Business Calculus; Calculus for Engineers; and Cryptography. I am also very knowledgeable in high school algebra and geometry, Discrete Math, and Linear Algebra. Feel free to contact me and let me know what topics you're struggling with; I hope to have the opportunity to help you succeed!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Calculus

I have taught calculus for four years -- two years at the University of Rochester, and two years at Ohio State. This also included tutoring calculus for two years at Ohio State. I have taught Calculus I, II, and III; Business Calculus; and Calculus for Engineers. I have a B.S. in Mathematics.

Discrete Math

I took Discrete Math my freshman year of college. I also took Transition to Higher Math in my sophomore year, which covered many of the same topics (logic, set theory, graph theory, combinatorics, and so on). Beyond that, these topics came up many times in other courses such as topology and abstract algebra. I have also taken courses in Computer Science, which reinforced the areas of Discrete Math on algorithms and asymptotic analysis.

Finite Math

I took Discrete Math my freshman year of college. I also took Transition to Higher Math in my sophomore year, which covered many of the same topics (logic, set theory, graph theory, combinatorics, and so on). I've also taken linear algebra, and studied topics such as linear programming in my algorithms coursework.

Linear Algebra

I took Linear Algebra in college. This was a proof-based course. I also took a computational course on Linear Algebra with Differential Equations. In addition, I have used elements of linear algebra in courses such as abstract algebra and number theory.

Extremely smart, explains problems clearly — I could not understand derivatives to save my life. After a 2 hour tutor session with Aaron, I blew threw the homework I had to do for my Calc class and actually understood what I was doing! ...
