About Aidan

My background: I have an undergraduate degree from St. John's College in Annapolis, MD. After working for years in advertising, I decided to go back to school. I recently graduated with a Ph.D. in physics from the College of William & Mary. After post-docs at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, I am in New York and ready to help you or your child learn math and science.

I originally went to school to get my Ph.D. to become a professor. Not sure I still want to be a professor, but I really miss teaching, which I did for years in graduate school. I also recently taught a physics course at a local university. My student evaluations said that I was an excellent one-on-one teacher.

Based on teaching in the classroom and one-on-one tutoring session, I think that anyone can learn math and science. Many people approach math and science with some fear and an idea that it's hard work. Math and science are about thinking logically, which everyone can do. By patiently working one-on-one with students, I can show them how to turn their ability to think logically into success in math and science.

One item of note: I live in Manhattan and do not have ready access to a car. Let's plan to meet somewhere near a train station.
