About Aron

I am a patient and compassionate educator who specializes in teaching adults. We all have strengths and weaknesses. I will honor your strengths and help you achieve your goals in the subject areas that I tutor. We will set goals together, check in about progress, and communicate about next steps. I specialize in professionals, returning students, non-traditional students, and students with special needs, along with a knack for teaching the successful learner who just wants to strengthen his or her skills.

My tutoring style merges my experience with classroom teaching, informal education, and, of course, one-on-one tutoring. I will offer you, as appropriate, study skills training, guidance and support in solving problems, customized activities to support the work that you are already doing. The most important thing is that I will help you harness your own strengths to be your most successful.

I have an BA in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, with minors in Computer Science and Hebrew Language, along with seminary training. I have also completed coursework in education. I have tutored on contract for religious schools, tutored Hebrew privately for students. I have also worked with private clients for elementary college Math and GRE test prep.

I look forward to working with you to help you meet and surpass your goals.

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.
