Hello! My name is Ron and I am an educational coach for students who want to master Science and Math. Understanding an individual's learning style is the key to success. Armed with this knowledge, I invest some time helping students how to learn more efficiently. I will help you to maximize your overall learning potential. My philosophy is to start with the goals of the student in mind, providing inspiration and fostering the confidence needed to go beyond studying towards real life application thereby solidifying knowledge. It would be my distinct pleasure to work with you as we invest time into making you a better overall student.

I have my Master’s Degree in Molecular Biology. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in the Biological Sciences, with a concentration in Biophysics and Molecular Biology and a minor in Chemistry. In my studies I had to master Biology, Calculus, Physics and Chemistry in equal measures, so my knowledge base is as diverse as my experience is broad. In addition I have studied Analytical Chemistry and Pharmacology extensively in order to compliment my career objectives. Thus, I have many real life examples to draw from so as to make the subject matter come alive in ways that should be complimentary to that which is learned in the classroom.

In the laboratory, I have devoted my work towards understanding the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease for over twelve years. In my research, I have become very familiar with how the brain functions and how it processes information. My goal is to help students prepare not only to learn, but to retain, knowledge so that the information is there when the application is required.

Genetics

I have my MS in Molecular Biology from Lehigh University (2010), courses included genomics, cell proliferation, oncology, RNA therapeutics, and DNA/RNA biochemistry among other topics. My BS was also in Biological Sciences with specialization in Molecular Biology and Biophysics. I have worked in the field of translational science (i.e. proteomics) for over 12 years. My tutoring method will involve using real life examples from oncology using cancer and cancer therapies to illustrate key ideas.

Organic Chemistry

Understanding Organic Chemistry was essential for me to obtain my degrees in Molecular Biology at both the Master's and Bachelor's degree stages. I have used this knowledge to help me design studies for biological research as well as in the interpretation of data as a result. I am well versed in biomolecule synthesis and degradation, post-translational modification dynamics, pharmacodynamics and enzymatic reactions at the molecular level, all which rely on an intimate knowledge of Organic Chemistry.

Pharmacology

I have worked in the pharmaceutical industry for over 18 years, both in basic research and in drug metabolism. The work that I do involves intimately understanding pharmacology (pharmacodynamics / pharmacokinetics). I have taken self-paced pharmacology seminars in addition to formal training that I had in Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacology when I was in graduate school. My tutoring method can pull from my personal experiences in the pharmaceutical industry as well as more current topics as needed.
