About Aaron

I like to help Students of all types reach their potential. I am very adjustable in my teaching style to better fit the students needs. All students can learn it just takes time and consistent guidance to help them. I think learning works better when it is fun to learn.

I am the father of 6 children 3 of them are on the Autism spectrum. I have taught for 10 years in various settings including public schools, private schools and charter schools. I have a bachelors degree in Elementary Education along with a current level 2 teaching license in Elementary Education and a Masters degree in Special Education. I have found that I really enjoy teaching smaller groups to better give them the one on one focus they need then in a full classroom of 30+ students.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have taught many types of students over the years the key is to be adjustable. Students with adhd need to change it up regularly as their focus can be limited. I also like to keep the learning interesting and fun to help keep them engaged. It is also important to quickly assess what their primary learning style is to better engage them. I also have a masters degree in special education.

Aspergers

I have taught many types of students over the years the key is to be adjustable. I have two daughters with Aspergers ages 12 and 15. They are very different from each other even though they have the same condition. Students with this condition like routine to a certain point. They can melt down quickly if they do not understand something or get discouraged. There are always warning signs this is going to happen, so I have learned to watch for these signs and circumvent them. You can do this in a variety of ways. The quickest is to give them a short break to spend time in their obsession, i.e. legos or reading. I like to keep the learning interesting and fun to help keep them engaged. It is also important to quickly assess what their primary learning style is to better engage them. I also have a masters degree in special education.

Cooking

I have been a cook in restaurants for over 12 years. I also come from a large family of 10 children who took turns cooking so I have many years experience in this field. I also taught cooking to pre k students to 3rd grade for over a year.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary students k-6 for 9 years. I have a elementary teaching license level 2 for the state of Utah. I have taught in charter schools, public schools and private schools. Students find me engaging and fun to learn from.
