About Aaron

Need a tutor who can fit your needs and bring out your best work? I am an experienced teacher having taught English in Korea for three years. There, my students learned test preparation, essay writing, public speaking/debate skills and a plethora of other subjects.

I use a fun yet firm approach, as positive reinforcement and enthusiasm are the best motivators for young learners. Well spoken and a strong communicator, my methods raise grades and push students to become more individual thinkers. As a former ESL teacher and world traveler, I am attuned to various cultural sensitivities and use that knowledge to cater to specific learning styles. Everyone processes information in a different way, which is why flexible teaching and comprehensive lesson plans can bring out new ideas.

For my clients, I teach anything from SAT and TOEFL prep to grammar and advanced syntax. College essays from students of mine stand out in their content, composition and writing style. Everyone has a unique story to tell; it’s my job to help students realize that story and convey it in the most effective way possible.

What sets me apart is my ability to connect with students and inspire interest on any given topic. Extensive classroom experience has allowed me to develop session plans that engage pupils, while encouraging them to use critical thinking.

So whether it's your terrifying term paper, monster midterm or exasperating ESL, I'm there to let you succeed and expand your limits. Let's get started!

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.

Film

I worked for 3 years in the television industry on programming like American Idol, the Food Network, and TMZ in Hollywood. I majored in film production and have both on-set experience and post production experience. I'm also proficient in film-related software like Final Cut Pro and After Effects.

Study Skills

I've graduated both high school and college and had a tutor for study skills before each qualifying exam. In addition, I'm also a teacher by trade and have taught test taking skills for the past 3 years (specifically for the TOEFL). Note taking, process of elimination, outline essays and context clues are a few of the study skills I teach.
