HobbiesI am a self-taught pianist and enjoy being physically active. I like playing racquetball and am a national caliber ultimate frisbee player. I also sincerely enjoy taking standardized tests (I practice in my spare time) and I can communicate some of my comfort to you. If you need help with something that I'm capable of doing, I would love to help with whatever you need!

I found Ari to be very helpful in tutoring me for the GRE Examination. He was readily available and worked with me to increase the skills needed to take the test and obtain a successful grade. He was always well-prepared and very patient with me. I would highly recommend him as a tutor.
Ari was fantastic. He really clicked with my daughter. Her focus was to increase her math score, but she improved 50 points on each section. She now has the overall score and Math score she needs to get into the program she wants at Pitt!
He's awesome! He was very flexible with timing and replied my emails right away.. I'm deaf so I was worried about the communicating part but he made it so easy and comfortable. I had to cram (kinda) and he understood and got working. My test score improved from the last time I took it so I'm happy. If I'm taking any kind of tests next time, I'd get him to tutor me again! (Way ahead of time, of course =P)
Ari was great to work with! He is very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and patient. I've recommended him to many friends, and would definitely hire him again.
This tutor helped me raise my SAT math score from a 660 to a 740, and I couldn't have done it without him. He was very helpful to me, and is great. It may not seem like it from that, but my verbal score was a 740, too. 5 stars, highly recommended!
