About Ron

Currently taking a year of from Perelman School of Medicine (UPenn) to do Cancer Biology Research at CU Boulder!

I love explaining math and science but especially: Calculus, Organic Chemistry, and Biology

For two years, I taught Organic Chemistry I, II, and physiology as a teaching assistant at Washington University in St. Louis where I earned a BA in Biochemistry while scoring in the 97th percentile on the MCAT. I have also scored 99th percentile on the SAT Math level II subject test (790/800) and the ACT math portion (35/36)

Although I'm new to Wyzant, I currently tutor the following subjects here in Boulder: GRE math, high school biology, college biology, Algebra/ Trigonometry and have raised scores and grades in as quickly as two weeks - looking forward to reaching more people!

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.

ACT Math

ACT math topics are: Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry - which are all topics that I enjoy teaching. I I scored 99 percentile on the ACT math test myself and can share personal test taking tips.

Algebra 1

I've taught Algebra 1 to adult learners, for GRE prep, and to a high school student struggling with it so I'm very comfortable with the material. I emphasize using drawing things out and thinking about the problems in multiple ways.

Biology

I was a teaching assistant for upper class biology students at Washington University in St. Louis and now tutor high school and college level biology. My focus is that students visually and intuitively understanding important concepts. Working with a high school student for 2 weeks before her final exam, I designed a study plan that ended up improving bringing her from a C to a B!

MCAT

I've been admitted to Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania with an MCAT score of 35/45 (96th percentile) which I took in July 2014.

Organic Chemistry

As an undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis, I taught organic chemistry I and organic chemistry II both to large groups as a teaching assistant and to individual students as a tutor. I love the subject and I especially enjoy teaching it one-on-one.
