About Aaron

I'm available Tues, Wed, Thurs 7-10pm and Mon, Fri, weekends by appointment. Throughout my high school and college years, I was a tutor for many subjects in math, science, language, music, and sports. After college, I was a teaching assistant for pre-algebra and algebra. My curiosity about the world around me drives my passion for teaching others the way that I wish I was taught.

I got my B.S. in Cognitive Science, Magna Cum Laude, at University of California - San Diego. I acquired a deep conceptual understanding of how students can optimize learning their school material via conducting experimental research on cognitive processes such as attention, memory, understanding, motivation, learning, reasoning, and via reading the latest scientific research in these topics.

After college, I enjoyed applying what I learned by working as a Pre-Algebra and Algebra teaching assistant in California.

I can help students achieve their goals with patience, structure, and hard-work.

I love science, math, music.

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.

General Music

I can accurately identify and reproduce musical intervals, scales, chords, chord progressions, rhythms, and other audible parameters. I went to University High School (Fresno) and studied four years of musicianship and jazz guitar performance, entailing musicology, music theory, audiation, and musical analysis. I went to University of California, San Diego and received A+ in all my music theory classes.

Music History

I went to University High School (Fresno) and studied four years of musicianship and jazz guitar performance, entailing musicology, music theory, audiation, musical analysis, and music history. I went to University of California, San Diego and received A+ in all my music theory classes with music history. Most music history books start with Ancient History or Bach, but I can go as far back as the 35,000 year old bone flute that is tuned to the Pentatonic Scale.
