About Ron


Bio

As a student that shied away from almost every subject, I appreciate how daunting any subject can be. My individual finding is nothing is more rewarding than successfully winning a good grade with a subject that you struggle with.

As a student that shied away from almost every subject, I appreciate how daunting any subject can be. My individual finding is nothing is more rewarding than successfully winning a good grade with a subject that you struggle with.

Mathematics: I have many years preparing students for success by understanding different learning styles and tutoring to a student’s style. From basic arithmetic to algebra, trigonometry, statistics, and calculus, I can find a way to succeed.

Photography: As a long time professional photographer with numerous tear sheets, I am familiar with both film and digital photography. I teach "How to Photography" and "Business Photography" classes for the Maricopa County Community Colleges system. I can offer instruction from people to architecture to landscape and complete studio set-ups for anything from table tops to motor vehicles. In the digital world enhancements, it's Adobe Photoshop which I can also instruct, using CS 4, CS 5.5, CS 6, and CC. In addition, I can teach Adobe Photoshop Elements.

Tutor training: I have been skilled in recognizing the many learning styles. In addition, I use proven methods that I adapt to each student as an individual.

Finally, please have your payment information up to date on WyzAnt so that I can respond.

Looking forward to helping you learn!

I had the most fun when I finally arrived in Calc II. I then could use all the mathematics that I had learned throughout the years. Calc III is even better since it uses the z axis.

The questions that you will need to answer on the ACT Math Test are relatively straightforward and cover topics that you would normally find a typical high school math class. Geometry questions account for a greater percentage of the ACT Math Test than do any other type of question and I am also certified in Geometry.

Great Lesson

My wife had a great lesson with Ron. He was very informative and patient with her questions. We will definitely be scheduling future lessons. Thank you!

Justin, 2 lessons with Ron

Excellent Tutor

Ron R. Was able to connect with my son and explain concepts in a way that he could easily understand. My son has now had two meetings with him and has come out of each feeling a bit more confident in his own abilities.

Terri, 7 lessons with Ron

Great Tutor

Ron does a great job getting our child to think instead of leading him with answers. He adds an element of fun to make the work not so taxing. Our son's last test score did in fact improve.

Debra, 14 lessons with Ron

Amazing Teacher!!!

Ron was really able to simplify and teach me about Manual Mode, which was my first goal. I am officially out of Auto Mode! He was patient, kind and concise. He always made sure my questions were answered and he even gave me challenges to work on at home! I would highly recommend Ron for any of your photography goals!

Knowledgeable And Patient Tutor

Michelle, 33 lessons with Ron

great tutor!

Ron is really helping my son understand calculus concepts beginning this year. It's making his school year in math start off very confident!

Alex, 4 lessons with Ron

Life saver

Ron was patient and thorough. He really took his time to help explain equations and formulas. Very easy going and friendly. Worked around my schedule.

Devin, 11 lessons with Ron

Outstanding Tutor!

Ron is extremely knowledgable in the field of photography and the associated computer based processors. His ability to pass this knowledge to his student is impressive. I will certainly be having Ron back in the future to continue to hone my skill set.

The Best Teacher

Knowing a subject doesn't mean you can teach the subject. However, in the case of Ron, he not only knows the subject (photography and all aspects of Adobe Photo Shop & all Elements) better than any one else, he is an absolute master teacher. He is brilliant, a master communicator, & unbelievably patient. He is the best there is. You can't do any better than Ron!
