About Aidan

I am a graduate student at Portland State University, and I am a very experienced tutor and teacher. At Portland State, I am a graduate assistant, meaning that I both teach and also work in the Writing Center. I also had a job in the Writing Center as a tutor at my undergraduate college, Bennington College. In addition, I have spent 3 years tutoring math and English at a charter school in Providence, Rhode Island, and spent a year as a classroom assistant in a 6th grade classroom.

I believe my experience, among different age groups--middle schoolers, high schoolers and college students--inspires my tutoring style. I recognize the need to be flexible as different students require different needs. Rather than using a one-size fits all method, my style of tutoring fits what a student needs--either someone who just needs some extra one-on-one support, or someone who needs more instruction.

But when I tutor, I never do it to contradict another educator or force my way of doing something onto a student. Instead, I trust in my own ability to conform to the student's needs, and work at their own pace, which allows me to provide what a student might not necessarily get at school: personalized assistance and instruction.

I am always open to hearing suggestions from parents and students; indeed, one reason why I enjoy tutoring so much is that it allows me to improve my own ability as an educator. Please feel free to reach out with questions or suggestions.

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.
