About Armon

I am a recent medical school graduate (August 2014) awaiting the start of residency. I have been a tutor for more than 10 years and have taught students at multiple academic grade-levels including elementary and middle school, high school, college/university, and grad school. I have experience teaching a multitude of subjects as outlined in my profile.
I have a history of creating innovative learning tools by implementing different techniques such as conceptualizing difficult-to-understand topics and relating them to our day-to-life in order to fulfil my objective as a tutor which is to enable and enhance the student’s ability to not only learn the subject matter quickly but to also enjoy it in that learning process since he/she can now relate to a specific topic more readily and easily. I have also mastered the art of building “mnemonics” which was an amazing tool for my own learning process before and during medical school and I have come to realize many of my students find mnemonics very effective and fun in their learning experience.
In addition to teaching, I also enjoy helping my students at enhancing study skills by introducing different academic approaches that they can utilize not only towards achieving their goals in all of their subject areas but also to their non-academic life-long goals.

Furthermore, I have an energetic and dynamic manner in which I approach every one of my students’ academic needs and the theme of every single one of my student-teacher relationship is individualized based on my student’s character, age, habits, and even ethnicity. It is no secret that we all learn in different ways, therefore it is imperative for me to be flexible and maintain a dynamic approach to my teaching technique.

I am confident that you will find my teaching style very effective and pleasant and since we never truly stop learning, I look forward to learning from every single one of you in the process of teaching.

Cheers,

Armon N.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

MCAT

During the past decade of tutoring, with a diverse group of students (ages 7-55) in various subjects, I have helped a high school senior increase her MCAT score from 28 to 34 in 10 hours of tutoring over 5 weeks; I assisted a UC Davis Junior to improve her MCAT Biological Section score from 4 to 10 after our first 2-hour meeting; assisted university/college students to succeed in Pre-Med courses (biology, microbiology, anatomy, physiology); helped returning students (computer engineers, business executives, etc) to explore/excel in new fields. All in all, I teach others how to learn, in and out of the classroom. In addition to enhancing their academic/career performance, I cherish the rapport and confidence I have built with them over years of communication even after the academic assistance is no longer necessary.

We can meet close to where I am or at your designated place (as long as it is within my travel radius) or I can tutor you online. I've tutored numerous out-of-state and oversea students. WyzAnt's new online tutoring platform, Google video chat and skype, among other cyber classroom support, have made online tutoring extremely convenient and efficient.

Microsoft Windows

Throughout the past 20+ years I have not only worked with computers and different versions of Microsoft windows for my own personal use, but have had to train myself in other areas pertaining to the windows operating system such as programming, software diagnostics, Microsoft office, etc...
I started helping users with their computers here and there up until approximately 8 years ago when I started tutoring users of windows as well as computer science students. I have had students at various levels of computer competency and literacy some of which needed tutoring particularly for different applications of Microsoft Windows such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft outlook, Excel, and PowerPoint. In addition, I have tutored a number of other users at the beginning's level Who simply needed to get acquainted with the Windows operating system before teaching them how to use the system for their personal and professional use whether it is in social media advertising, Internet search and research, blog posting, or simple every day browsing where I particularly taught them how to browse efficiently and how to get the maximum results out of their browsing experience.

Pharmacology

I am a medical doctor with an M.D. degree earned in 2015. As part of the intense training that is required of every medical graduate in the U.S., candidates of the M.D. degree are required to complete one year of basic pharmacology followed by two years of advanced/applied pharmacology as it relates to disease prevention and treatment. Additionally, as a requirement of the MD curriculum as well as for post-graduate medical training US medical licensure, medical doctors are subject to and my satisfactorily pass, national board examinations (which many deem as some of the toughest professional exams in the world) which consist of four separate 8 to 15 hour examinations (USMLE step 1, step 2 CK, step 2 CS, step 3) all of which test the physicians knowledge of pharmacology their ability to apply that knowledge in clinical practice. I have completed and scored well above the national average on all four of those exams. Moreover, I have over 10 years of tutoring experience the last five of which have included tutoring students in an array of non-medical as well as advanced medical subjects such as pharmacology, physiology, biochemistry, anatomy, and many more. I employ various teaching methods that are student and subject-specific which I determined on a case-by-case basis after an initial assessment and evaluation of the student's capabilities and educational needs. These methods include, but are not limited to: SODOTO (see one, do one, teach one), experiential teaching where real life examples are used and the students are asked to apply their knowledge in order to arrive at the correct, as well as some unconventional methods (where appropriate and necessary) such as motivational counseling and problem-solving skill-building prior to subject specific teaching.
