Math, Statistics, And Accounting Tutoring
My name is Aaron Rodriguez and I tutored throughout high school, college, and my masters program. I graduated with >3.8 GPAs in accounting (undergrad) and business analytics (grad school). In my full time job, I've a season People Analytics professional, specializing in Statistics and Python.
Additionally, I was named one of the Top Ten Tutors of the Boston area in 2022.
I love watching people grow to meet their goals. I have been teaching people since I was in high school (I'm 27 now). Even now in my full-time job, after tutoring throughout college and graduate school, I work with young adults trying to grow into their professional careers. It's my favorite part about my work and, in the future, I plan to become a professor. Helping people is simply a passion of mine.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
First, I would start out by understanding a student's motivations for taking the course and their goals. Teaching someone who is reluctantly taking a class and just wants to pass is different from someone who wants help with something they are passionate about.
Second, I would develop a short assessment for them to take with me. I would want to see how they think and how much they know so I can assess whether their fundamentals are strong.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have six years of tutoring experience in a range of subjects: Chemistry, Algebra II through to Calculus, Statistics, and Coding. In my professional work, I use statistics and data science regularly and manage a team where I continue to refine my teaching skills.
How did you get started teaching?
Honestly, it started with needing money when I was younger. However, I found that it was something that I was really passionate about; the joy that I get from watching an idea click in someone's head, especially in a subject that is difficult, keeps me motivated.
What types of students have you worked with?
Typically I've worked with high school students and older.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I got married in October :) That's why I want to tutor, to save extra money for a house.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
If you are signing up for a tutor, you have to care. Extra time won't be helpful if the student isn't invested in trying to get better.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
It's a complicated question, but ultimately I would try to think through what about the subject is difficult for them. Is it memorizing the rules of a subject? Is it being able to work through problems step by step? Is it one concept that is just not intuitive?
