I do enrichment mentoring for students who are interested in mathematics, physics and/or computer science. Since I have studied many areas in and related to mathematics, I can help students at all level with whatever they are most interested in. My priority is to form good connections with my students and for them (and me) to truly enjoy our work together. In my experience, this is a prerequisite for sustained engagement in a challenging subject such as mathematics.
I have a personal passion for mathematics and I love connecting with students who are in the process of discovering their own interest in it. People who love math can bond over the joys of having a new idea or solving a difficult problem, no matter what the age difference!
Ari was able to relate really well to my son, making all kinds of math topics fun for him. We originally asked him to help with Geometry questions, but soon they were exploring a wide range of topics, from Number Theory, to Topology, to Set Theory. Ari is very personable and his passion for math and learning makes it fun for his students.
My son has been working with Ari for two years, and he always has a great experience. Not only is Ari extremely smart and knowledgeable, but he is also enthusiastic about the material and fun to work with. It's a unique combination. Regardless of whether your child is passionate or hesitant about math, we would recommend Ari wholeheartedly.
In the first meeting with a new student, I try to learn as much as I can about them, their interests and any specific goals they might have. I tailor the structure and content of my mentoring to each student's personality and interests.
I have a MS in mathematics from Portland State University.
I typically charge $45/hr, but the price can be negotiated for families that are unable to afford this.
I have been working as a tutor for more than 10 years. I began as an employee in my college's math and science tutoring center.
Over the years, I have worked with all types of student (elementary school through college) on subjects including mathematics (all types), physics, chemistry and programming. In recent years, however, I primarily mentor students in mathematics for enrichment or recreational purposes.
I ran an afterschool program in which students designed, built and programmed electronic devices, including remote-controlled cars and a handheld video game.
In a mentoring relationship, the personal connection between teacher and student is as important as the teacher's expertise. Therefore, I think it is essential for students to find a teacher with whom they enjoy sharing ideas and asking questions.
