About Aaron

My goal as a tutor is to help my students not only learn the content of their classes, but also gain the confidence and abilities they need to be successful in those courses. To do this, I customize lesson plans to create a unique, individualized experience that will be beneficial to every student I work with. I make a point of always having an open line of communication between myself and my students (as well as their parents). I am always 100% invested in the success of each student I work with and make sure that students (and their parents) are always consistently satisfied with their progress, every step of the way.

I am a graduate of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, with a Bachelor's in Integrative Biology.

I also have a Masters of Science in Education in Learning Design and Technology through the University of Purdue. This degree, among other things, focused on online forms of education and has helped me enhance my virtual tutoring, maximizing all of the technological advantages and options of the virtual platform.

Since my tutoring takes place solely online utilizing the virtual classroom (exceptions may be made on a case by case basis), I provide a free 15-minute (sometimes longer depending on student need and questions asked) walk through of the online tutoring platform and the virtual classroom to ensure students are familiar with the technology and they are ready to go for subsequent lessons.

I have previous experience tutoring various math subjects all the way up to college level calculus courses. I have experience tutoring the sciences (biology, physics, chemistry, etc.) up to and including college level classes. I have over 5 years of experience successfully working with students on standardized test prep (SAT, ACT, PLAN, etc.). I have also worked with students in in various other subjects, general studies, and in improving organizational and study skills.

If you are interested, please feel free to contact me. I always respond promptly to any and all inquiries and look forward to hearing from you soon!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience working with children from K-6th running after-school and in-school hands-on science experiments multiple times per week. I also have worked with incoming 3rd/4th grade students in a simulated classroom setting.

Study Skills

At the hospital I volunteer at, I often will be working with some patients (on Pediatrics) that have prolonged stays due to injury or illness. Often times, they need not only tutoring help, but organizational and study skills help to either get back into the flow of school work when they are close to discharge, or to learn proper study/work skills that may be needed to compensate for effects of medications they are currently on.

Zoology

I was a biology major with an emphasis in animal biology (zoology).
I also have 9 years experience working in zoos (Brookfield Zoo and Lincoln Park Zoo).
