Educating Whole People
The foundation of my work is ensuring that students achieve academic success. At the same time, I strive to do more than just raise grades. Using an innovative, holistic approach, I help students to discover and appreciate their own gifts, values, and life dreams. For those students who need it, I offer services that increase their self-knowledge and light the flame of their inspiration. These tools, which give children their own reasons to pursue learning and engage life, make them far better students and far happier people.

“Ari is, in a word, FANTASTIC! Life for my family changed when Ari began tutoring my son. He knows how to get the student involved and taking responsibility. Ari’s skills also go beyond the academic: he weaves philosophy and current events into the lessons and closely follows what else is going on in the student’s life. He tutors the whole student..”
