About Aaron

Please send me a message before sending an instant session request.
Also, please be aware that I cannot help with tests or quizzes. 

I have had a passion for mathematics since elementary school, and spent much of my youth doing extracurricular math, from competitions to reading books to tutoring my friends.  As an undergraduate at MIT, I took as many math classes as I could, while also working in the math tutoring lab and tutoring all of my friends in their math or mathy computer science courses.  As a graduate student at the University of Chicago, I prided myself on being the one my friends came to first when they had difficulties.  It was there that I got to experience the joy of teaching my own courses, as well as continuing with tutoring and also helping students engage in their own self-study programs.  Nothing thrills me quite so much as transfering my knowledge and passion to someone else.

I have taught college level classes in calculus and linear algebra, but I also have experience tutoring algebra (both high school and abstract), geometry, pre-calculus, discrete math/combinatorics, algorithms, real and complex analysis, differential equations, probability and statistics, representation theory, and various other topics (both standard and non-standard) from the undergraduate and graduate mathematics curriculum.  Additionally, for pre-arranged tutoring sessions, I am happy to do prep work, including learning new topics or thinking about more involved homework questions.
