Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Aaron is helping instill confidence in my son and helping him advocate for himself and use tools to find answers on his own. He does a great job explaining and including good to know facts.

Gracie, 3 lessons with Aaron
Tutor responded:

Gracie, your son is a delight and I see him progressing when he reads and asks and answers questions about the material! Let’s keep going! :)

Very comfortable

My daughter is opening up and appreciates Aaron’s patience and understanding. She likes how Aaron will explain things multiple ways until she understands.

Chris, 10 lessons with Aaron
Tutor responded:

Chris, your kind feedback makes me smile - your daughter has been a pleasure and I know she will ultimately succeed at anything she puts her mind to do!

Knowledgeable and encouraging

My daughter is struggling with organization and writing. One afternoon with Aaron's guidance and I can see that my daughter feels better about her school work already!

Kate, 23 lessons with Aaron
Tutor responded:

How kind you are to give such a tribute to a simple tutor, Kate! I am delighted that your daughter feels ready to succeed because of the organizational skill sets we worked on this afternoon. Looking forward to continuing the journey of growth with your daughter!

Very patient tutor

Aaron worked with my son on one of his projects and did such a great job explaining things to my son. He was extremely patient with him and asked the right answers to keep him engaged and focus which is a very hard thing to do with my son. Thank you, Aaron!

Sanaa, 1 lesson with Aaron
Tutor responded:

I enjoy working with every student to help him or her reach his or her unique potential. We each have different gifts and must use them accordingly. Your son is a delight! Thank you, Sanaa!

Knowledgeable tutor

Aaron taught English comprehension, vocabulary during reading passages with my daughter. He knew his material and was able to explain my 11 year old very nicely. Being in 6th grade but having to understand material for 7th and 8th grade is tough, but Aaron did a great job explaining and stressing on what the reading meant. We look forward to having more sessions with him in the future. Today was our first session. Thank you.

Shefali, 2 lessons with Aaron
Tutor responded:

Thank you so much, Shefali! Your daughter is headed for great things and I hope to help her get there!

great

Always will go communicate about my boys. We are only 2 weeks in but I really feel that he is a great person to help my boys be successful.

Melissa, 10 lessons with Aaron
Tutor responded:

Thank you, Melissa! I hope I can help your boys become more proficient in mathematics and general study skills. They are great boys.

Tutor one on one

Aaron was really great, he took his time and was very helpful for my son, I wish we had met him earlier. He kept me informed, wanted to know more about the student before the meeting, so he would be well prepared for the direction he would need to take for my son's understanding to be more successful in his project. We will definitely use him again!

Priscilla, 1 lesson with Aaron
Tutor responded:

What a thoughtful, sincere comment from a lady whose son I enjoyed helping! Please let me know if you have any other education needs. Thank you!

Very Knowledgeable!

Wow!! My first session with Aaron was great! He came prepared with a game plan for me to achieve my goals in becoming a Nurse 😀! I'm so excited that I picked Aaron to be my tutor. Looking for great things to happen from this! #goAaron
