About Aaron

My name is Aaron, and I specialize in tutoring all varieties of math and physics for students at a college sophomore level or lower. I graduated from Rice with a Master's in Mechanical Engineering in 2015, and I've been tutoring people since freshman year of high school. I started out meeting with friends to help them with tests, but after I graduated from high school, I branched out and started tutoring others in my community during the summer. As a graduate student, I led a review course for the Introduction to Engineering Mechanics course. So far, I have been hired to tutor students between eighth and twelfth grade, and I've received positive feedback from everyone I've tutored. One student, for whom I tutored in pre-algebra, said that he learned more with me in two hours than he did in an entire semester with his teacher. Also, some of my high school friends that I worked with regularly told me that I really helped them make it through their junior and senior year physics classes. My strengths as a tutor are a deep understanding of the subjects I teach, patience, a desire to give the people I tutor a real understanding of their subject.

I am also a very methodical tutor. I start by attempting to identify not only what a person is having trouble with, but also why they are having trouble with it. This allows me to come up with a personalized approach for each person I tutor. Lastly, I come prepared to teach efficiently so that you can get the most out of your sessions with me.

Experience with the subjects I tutor:
In high school, I took 4 years of math and 2 years of physics. In college, I have taken 12 courses related to the fields I tutor in. In both high school and college, I have received an A or A- in every subject that I tutor.

Other relevant scores:
GRE Math: 169 (out of 170)
SAT Math: 800
SAT Math 2 Subject Test: 800
SAT Physics Subject Test: 800
ACT Math: 36 (out of 36)
AP Physics B: 5 (out of 5)
AP Calculus AB: 5 (out of 5)

My normal rate is $50/hr, but I offer a $10/hr discount for students who want online lessons or are willing to meet close to my location (intersection of Hilcroft and Sands Point, 77074). I guarantee you will not be disappointed with the results!

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.

Great tutor!

My son enjoyed Aaron tutoring him. Aaron was very patient and was very prepared each time he tutored. My son passed his pre-AP Final with a high B. Thanks you for helping my son.
