Bio

I am a proficient and native user of sign language. I have experience in teaching American Sign Language as I have taught the subject at the college level as well as have tutored so many students in the language. I have such a passion about this beautiful and expressive language as I desire to help those who truly have an interest in the language become fluent in the language with a great understanding of the grammar rules, facial expressions and linguistics of it.

I am a proficient and native user of sign language. I have experience in teaching American Sign Language as I have taught the subject at the college level as well as have tutored so many students in the language. I have such a passion about this beautiful and expressive language as I desire to help those who truly have an interest in the language become fluent in the language with a great understanding of the grammar rules, facial expressions and linguistics of it.

I also am proficient in mathematics as I have always loved mathematics for how it has helped me in a sense become a better critical thinker as well as a better problem solver. I do have a degree in Mathematics, but it is not the degree that has enabled me to help many people tackle their weakest subject and overcome it. It is rather my passion for teaching the subject in such a way that utilizes the learner's learning style with the use of visual aids that has helped many individuals to pass their course with confidence and develop a better relationship with mathematics.

Algebra-based Physics is another subject I can tutor in as I have taken courses in Physics in high school and college. I love Physics more than the other major science courses (biology and chemistry) because it is so math intensive. Physics really helps people understand how things work and develop a sense of appreciation for how everything works in this Universe.

Computer programming when it comes to Visual Basic, HTML, CSS, PHP, etc. is yet another subject that I am very passionate about as I have been programming since I was a teen. By having learned how to program, I have developed an appreciation for how games, websites, software all work and in turn, I am able to know how to make even better computer/web applications as well as websites as a Web Developer. As I have helped quite few individuals in this subject, I have been able to help them understand the simplicity of computer programming languages, yet making it challenging enough for them to go on to master the languages.

Aaron was up-to-date and patient.

Aaron helped me with the basics of college Visual Basic. He gave helpful examples and was patient and respectful with me. I appreciate Aaron's help and understanding disposition.

Brenda, 1 lesson with Aaron

Patient Tutor With a Heart for Students!

Aaron is dedicated to helping our son do his very best on his upcoming ACT test. It is also helpful knowing that Aaron can communicate with our son, who is deaf.

Kirsten , 2 lessons with Aaron

Good intro lesson

In the first lesson we mostly just had a casual conversation so Aaron could assess my current ASL knowledge. He was very good about realizing I did not know a sign and fingerspelling it without me not even having to ask.

Rachel, 2 lessons with Aaron

A very thorough and gifted teacher

My 17-year old was thrilled with her time with Aaron learning sign language. He's a gifted teacher and we highly recommend him.

Danelle, 5 lessons with Aaron

Great tutor

I thoroughly enjoyed my session with Mr. Aaron. He was patient and took the time to explain. He made sure I understood it.

Armando, 28 lessons with Aaron

Great Tutor!

Aaron was very patient and understanding with me, as I have never taken an Algebra 2 class prior to this one. He wrote out the functions, formulas and orders to perform each equation, so that when solving the equation I knew what had to be done first, second and so on. I strongly recommend Aaron, he was flexible with my schedule and we were able to meet both online and in person, which was fantastic as I was able to receive the help I needed and be home with my children. I would absolutely request Aaron for any/all future tutoring needs.

Kelly, 4 lessons with Aaron

Best ASL experience

I have met with Aaron D. a couple of times now and I have to say, working with Aaron has to be the "best ASL experience" I have ever had. Aaron not only leaves you feeling fulfilled and knowledgeable, he makes your learning experience fun and relevant to your everyday activities. He is very patient and considering and never gives you more than you can handle.
