About Ricardo

My name is Ricardo P. I recently have graduated from MIT with a double major in Chemical Engineering and Biology. I am a budding medical student as I plan to be a surgeon some day! Aside from my career goals, I love to teach and tutor students. My approach in helping students is to be a mentor above all and help students reach their own academic goals. I feel happy to be able to assist students excel in areas in which they struggle with because I understand that school can be tough sometimes and I am willing to help in any way possible.

My main expertise is in many subtopics in Biology, Chemistry, and Math. I have a wealth a knowledge in these subjects that I love to share with other students. I will sit with you until you understand the material and I like to present material in an easy-to-understand fashion with visuals and a lot of practice so that they remain ingrained in your long term memory. In all, I focus on your study habits so that you learn to work independently and perform exceptional on tests.

At MIT, I took various college-level math courses, which included multi-variable calculus, differential equations, and statistics. I however like to tutor AP Calculus to help high school students as well as any math from Pre-algebra, Algebra I and II, Precalculus, and trigonometry because I like to inspire students to like math early on in their academics. My grades in college math were A's and I got a score of 5 on the AP Calculus AB test. I did not take the AP calculus BC test in high school, but my background with Multi-variable calculus at MIT has well-prepared me to assist in any areas of weaknesses in these subjects. I have helped students receive 4-5 on the AP Calculus AB test.

At MIT, I majored in Chemical Engineering and Biology with a GPA of 4.5 and I have gained a profound background in these subjects. I have tutored both AP Biology and AP Chemistry high school students, and college-level organic chemistry students to achieve their goals in exams.

If you find yourself struggling in calculus, biology, general and/or organic chemistry, don't hesitate to ask for help! I am at your service and you will see that you will improve in your understanding of the material!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I recently graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering from MIT, which requires a deep understanding of math. I have tutored students in higher level math courses, such as Calculus; however, I can also help students with Algebra as this is one of the main foundations of mathematics. I work with students until they understand the material.

Biology

I graduated from MIT with a major in Biology (B.S.) and I have worked in a couple of research positions. I have tutored students outside of WyzAnt in AP and IB Biology in homework, exams, and even lesson to understand the core concepts of this subject.

Chemistry

I graduated from MIT with a major in Chemical Engineering (B.S.) and I have worked in a couple of research positions, which include projects on arthritis at MIT and pulmonary hypertension at Loma Linda University. I have tutored students outside of WyzAnt in AP and IB Chemistry in homework, exams, and I have even prepared lessons for students to understand the core concepts of this subject. Additionally, I have experience also with college-level Chemistry courses.

Physiology

At MIT, I took some of the most rigorous Biology/Physiology courses with some of the leading professors in the nation. I have a broad background in the major organ systems and more. I can help you study for tests and understand concepts in a way that you can easily understand. I am myself a budding medical student.

Prealgebra

I recently graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering from MIT, which requires a deep understanding of math. I have tutored students in higher level math courses, such as Calculus; however, I can also help students with pre-algebra as this is one of the main foundations of mathematics. I work with students until they understand the material.

Precalculus

I am a recent graduate from MIT, and I have tutored pre-calculus and AP calculus students. I received a score of 5 on the AP Calculus test, and I got straight A's in my high school and college-level math courses.
