About Aaron

Among several of my previous insanities, was to begin academia in the humanities.

I taught in Korea, then studied Science, now my left and my right brain have formed an alliance.

My writing is found in quite a few places: newspaper clippings and internet spaces.

I’ve taught overseas and outdoors by the beach, and I can craft fun presentations to teach.
This included refining climate education, and helping kids learn at a nature-school station.
Recently I’ve built some leadership skills, by hosting a workshop on fun writing drills.

I'm comfortable tutoring kids or adults, my creative approach yields amazing results.
I love to keep learning fun and interactive, and for differing levels, my approach is adaptive.

I'm a writer, a reader, a knowledge consumer; I enjoy witty wordplay and punderful humor.

My subjects of greatest tutoring strength: writing and editing for short or long length,
proofreading and expanding vocabulary. And...oh dear, nothing rhymes with vocabulary.

For ESL learners: I'll help improve conversation, so you can speak English without consternation.

If you read the above and you like what you see,
please do not hesitate to contact me.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I spent over a year in Korea on Jeju Island teaching ESL to grades 1-9. In the summer of 2015 I taught at EF Washington DC to both kids and adults, and gave English presentations to the entire student body. I also have a CELTA Certification from IH Barcelona.

Grammar

I received a bachelor's degree in English from Goucher College (2010). I also obtained an ESL CELTA Certificate from IH Barcelona (2011).

Proofreading

I received a Bachelor's degree in English from Goucher College (2010).

Working as a reporter for the Legislative Gazette (2011) and the Goucher Quindecim (2008-2010) I was tasked with proofreading the entire paper and learned both AP and Chicago style proofing. I also helped proofread the Jeju Weekly while I was an ESL teacher in South Korea (2011-2012).

Proofreading student papers was part of my responsibility as a TA at American University (2013-2015).

Writing

I am a published writer/reporter (various outlets) and the host of the Fort Orange Writer's Workshop (Albany, 2015-present).
