About Ariel

I have received my Master's degree from the Arnold School of Public Health in Health Services Policy and Management. I have also graduated from Emory University with a B.S. in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology. I have over TEN years of experience tutoring individuals. I previously worked for the Kumon program where I tutored students in both Mathematics and Reading. I had the opportunity to assist students ranging from 4-16 years old with reading skills starting from letter sounds all the way to high school level literary texts. The program also allowed me to utilize my expertise in mathematics to assist children 3-17 years old with math skills ranging from counting to calculus.

During my undergraduate career at Emory I became a Howard Hughes scholar where I served as a mentor and academic instructor. I was able to extend my tutoring skills to subjects pertaining to the sciences such as chemistry and biology. As my passion for tutoring increased, five years ago, I decided to include SAT and ACT tutoring into my repertoire.

My favorite part about tutoring is having the opportunity to watch a student bloom and gain confidence in his/her own capabilities. A simple phenomenon like this is what amazes me and motivates me to continue tutoring. For every student I design a personal lesson which focuses on instilling the skills and necessary measures to go beyond the expected. I follow the belief that there is nothing a child CAN'T do; with learning especially, so long as one can try,one can succeed.

Knowledgeable and proficient

Ariel was very pleasant and my daughter related with her very well. The assignments she gave for homework was in sync with the expectations I had for the tutorial I was seeking for my 13 year old daughter. I'm confident she'll get my daughter to the academic level I'm hoping for during next school term.
