30min increments: For =< 60mins lesson, you have to come near to my place; I will come to your place at >= 90mins.

To the H.S. student who feels mathematically challenged, this is the way to go to open more possibilities for your future career. "The world is your oyster," a friend told me once and I now say the same thing to you! Let me know if you need help.

(IMPORTANT: Please do NOT book any lessons without confirming with me if we have a match in schedule. I have other obligations besides tutoring so if you do not have a flexible schedule, I recommend other tutors that will match your budget and schedule.)

About Rod

I have bachelor's and master's degrees in electronics engineering and b

I️ was connected to Rod through a tutoring agency. I️ contacted the agency because I️ recently graduated college and wanted to get into grad school but had not taken a math class since the 10th grade. The school I️ was applying to needed a minimum math score for the GRE, which I️ knew would be a enormous stretch for me. Additionally, I️ always had trouble with math and knew I️ would need a tutor to re-teach me everything I️ needed to know to get the score I️ wanted. Initially, the agency connected me to 3 different tutors who were all absolutely terrible! Sometimes they didn’t even know how to answer sample questions in the workbooks! Finally, I was connected to Rod. After our first meeting I️ knew he would be the one who would help me improve. After a month of intense work with him my GRE math scores actually improved a full 12 points! Beyond that, he literally taught me math in a way in which I️ actually understood it. Before I️ just thought I couldn’t learn, but now I’m confident that I️ actually retained everything and it even made sense! I’m so grateful to have met Rod because before him I️ truly felt hopeless. I️ would definitely recommend Rod to anyone who is looking to drastically improve their math skills. If you’re like me and hate math, can’t grasp it, and even feel like you just can’t learn it, then definitely contact Rod now! You won’t be sorry!

I initially reached out to Rod for Algebra 1 review because I felt that my daughter lacked a solid foundation in algebra. However, after a couple of sessions, we have decided to switch gears toward geometry with Rod’s recommendation. Throughout the geometry lessons, algebra practice was incorporated. I am happy that not only did Rod tailor his lessons to my daughter’s goals but also he gave her a lot of encouragement. My daughter found it extremely helpful that she got to explain and discuss with Rod, which made lessons interactive and real learning. Now going back to school, my daughter feels confident, thanks to Rod!

I feel lucky we found Dave! My son who is 11 yo was having a hard time with his other piano teacher. Dave is patient, friendly and encouraging. What I really love is that Dave notices where my son is having a problem and comes up with exercises to work on that issue!

Dave is a great teacher and has helped me for 2 years whenever I have a problem he takes time out of the lesson to help me on a specific instruction. He pushes me to do better but we still go at a place we’re I am comfortable.

Linear algebra takes a big leap into the abstract, and this can be a bit challenging after spending years doing analytical geometry. I once had a professor tell me that linear algebra didn't really have application to the real world, and that it didn't need to, because it was beautiful in and of itself. That's a nice sentiment, but it's not true, actually. Linear algebra is vital in engineering and the sciences precisely because it has some very real applications in regards to systems and their stability. I understand this, and I can help you form a solid understanding of linear algebra as well.

I am a teacher with 6 years of experience teaching AP Chemistry. To best serve my students, it was important to me to have a very strong knowledge base of all fundamental chemistry concepts. Therefore, I built on what I learned as a science major at the University of Notre Dame by taking post-graduate classes in chemistry at Gordon College. I am confident that I am now in a position to help you prepare for the General Chemistry questions on the MCAT.

"I wish I had found Aron earlier on in my math class, but nonetheless the couple of sessions we had together in preparation for my final exam made the difference! I received an A on the final thanks in large part for his expertise in breaking down a few difficult concepts I had been hung up on. Aron is extremely knowledgeable, professional and takes the time to ensure I understand the underlying principles behind the calculations. He has a very intuitive sense of explaining things from different angles so that the student is able to tackle a wide variety of problems. If you are looking for a math tutor, please stop your search right here and give Aron a call. He will exceed your expectations! I will be utilizing him again and look forward to the sessions!"
