About Aaron

I am an experienced Private Math and SAT / ACT Tutor. I provide tutoring in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Statistics and SAT, ACT, PSAT, ISEE, SSAT, TAKS, GRE and GMAT test preparation. I have helped students achieve dramatic grade improvements and raise their test scores by several hundred points in short periods of time. I accomplish this by focusing on developing a student's problem-solving, critical reasoning and test-taking abilities.

Students have achieved perfect SAT math and earned full merit scholarships!

I will develop a custom program that enhances her strengths and attacks his weaknesses. Just as no two children are alike, the tutoring program for no two students is exact either.

I enjoy working with gifted students who take honors classes or classes above their grade level. These include students who are taking AP Calculus and AP Statistics, students enrolled in online classes through the Center for Talented Youth (CTY) at Johns Hopkins University and the Art of Problem Solving online school and students who have entered American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) administered by the Mathematical Association of America.

I earned a master's degree from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, the #1 graduate degree program in applied mathematics.

I am located in Greenwich, CT and serve Fairfield and Westchester Counties.

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.

ACT Math

I developed techniques that helped a recent student raise his score from the low 20s to 30! I work with students to develop a custom study plan that attacks their weaknesses and enhances their strengths. Students that hone these techniques over considerable practice have had great success!

Algebra 1

I have helped many math students raise their grades dramatically in short periods of time. I accomplish this by focusing on improving a student's problem solving ability, a skill that is not often taught well in school. I have worked with students with learning disabilities as well as gifted students taking advanced classes or classes beyond their grade level. I enjoy helping students achieve their maximum potential!

Outstanding tutor!

4/8/14 My son learned more in one hour with Aaron than he had in 9 hours of an SAT prep course. Aaron is knowledgeable, patient, and an excellent teacher who shared strategies for test taking as well as reviewing material. I am confident with his help that my son will earn an outstanding score on the SATs. 6/15/14 My son has continued to gain his confidence with Aaron. We anxiously await his subj
