ExperiencePrincipal tutor and education consultant for Bridger Educational Services and Tutoring, I have 15 years experience as an English teacher and writing tutor, working with students ranging in age from 12 to 35.
I hold a current teaching license in Montana and am teaching part-time Advanced Composition, Creative Writing, and Writing Studies at a local high school, where I also train student tutors for the school’s Writing Center. I have been both a writing tutor and Writing 101 instructor at Montana State University.
Over the past five years, I have built an extensive knowledge of standardized writing assessments, including the ACT and SAT, the GRE, and several AP exams, including English Literature, English Language, and US History. I have helped hundreds of students build confidence going into these assessments and ultimately increase their scores.
As a Teacher Consultant for the Yellowstone Writing Project, I design and facilitate professional development workshops for teachers around the state on the English Language Arts-Writing and Writing Across the Curriculum components of the Montana Common Core Standards. I understand the increasing demands on students to use writing to convey their knowledge and understanding in academic contexts.
I am also a writer, struggling every day to find the right words to say what needs to be said. My short stories and poems can be found in two Yellowstone Writing Project anthologies, and several articles and essays have been published in Outside Bozeman magazine.
HobbiesMuch of the material for my writing erupts from my love of the outdoors—skiing is a particular passion—and spending as much time there as possible with my wife and our three children. I also make time for the occasional tennis match, pick-up hockey game, round of golf, trail run, or whitewater rafting trip.

Phenomenal experience! I've worked with Aaron Yost many times and keep coming back. Every paper I've ever taken to him has turned out infinitely better. I never stop learning from him too! Great personality and wonderful character - truly cares about what he's doing. If you're looking for a tutor, definitely contact him.
