About Aaron

I have a degree in Creative Writing. I am also certified by the University of Cambridge as an ESL (English as a Second Language) instructor (CELTA).

I love writing and teaching. I live for the moment a person goes from not knowing to knowing, the energy that that positive energy gives off and the motivation and confidence it creates for extended opportunities for learning and facilitating proper education.

I have over 10 years of experience tutoring students of various ages, cultures, educational aptitudes, careers and interest.

I have traveled extensively, domestically and internationally. Places I've visited include: Rome, Paris, Egypt, Dubai, Canada, Jamaica and several other countries and localities.

I am highly interested in people developing their own identities and creativity. Students should not be afraid to take risk, especially when placed in a safe learning environment. I want to facilitate all the necessary components to allow my students to succeed, gain confidence and proficiency in whatever their interests are.

I have been in communications sector for over 10 years, with a career in law enforcement and court procedures. I have a "get it done" attitude. Diligence and integrity are two unwavering components necessary to accomplish whatever someone wants in life. This is the core of my approach to teaching and learning. Everyone deserves a chance and everyone has the opportunity to aspire for and obtain greatness and I'm here to help.

Additionally, I am a paid, published writer, specializing in the healthcare sector. I also write poetry and short stories. I coach people of various ages, cultures and lifestyle choices, with their essays and other academic and professional writings.

I have over five years of ESL experience. I have also taught online/distant learning lessons via Skype.

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.

Arabic

I have studied Arabic as a requirement for my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Successfully completing complete an intermediate course, without prior education in the Arabic language in a university setting. I lived in Yemen for a year and in Egypt for a few months. I am currently taking lessons in advanced Arabic, particularly grammar.

English

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. I have successfully tutored people of various ages, cultures, ethnicities and educational and professional backgrounds in grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and other aspects of the English language for over 10 years.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. I am also certified by the University of Cambridge to teach English to foreign language speakers.
I have over 3 years experience teaching overseas in Egypt and Yemen. I also have experience teaching ESL online and distance learning.
I am a paid, published writer, with journalism, law enforcement, court proceedings and accounting experience. I am able to teach business and academic English to various ages, one-to-one, small groups or large. All of my lessons are student-centered, meaning emphasis is placed on the student developing her skills with the English language, instead of having the teacher being the primary focus of the lessons.
Ability to speak or understand well is not a condition for taking lessons with me. I think it's safe to say English and its proficiency are vital parts of my life, I would love to share it with you.

Proofreading

As a paid, published writer (creative non-fiction, book reviews, press reports, etc...) its extremely pertinent that I have adequate proofreading and editing skills in order to be successful. Any errors I submit is a direct reflection of my professionalism and personal brand.

Study Skills

I have earned an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts, a BFA in Creative Writing and teacher certification to teach English as a second language. I'm also a second language learner and a thorough, proficient researcher. Study skills are now second nature to me. Also, I have taught graduating high school students to better transition to college life and higher expectations and demands by learning proper study skills for exams and research assignments.

Writing

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. I've successfully completed courses in Newswriting/Journalism, Technical Writing, Business/Professional Writing, Poetry, Fiction Writing and Creative Writing. As well as, courses in advanced composition. I am also a paid, published writer, specializing in the healthcare sector. I've been an accomplished writer and writing coach for over 10 years.
