About Vernon


Bio

My love for science began when I was in high school. I graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School in New York with a major in chemistry. Chemistry came very easy to me and I began tutoring students in college when I was a 17 year old freshman. I can recall the first student that I tutored. He was frustrated with dimensional analysis, but when I broke it down into its fundamental concepts, he slowly managed to grasp the concept and did well in his course. That student is now a...

My love for science began when I was in high school. I graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School in New York with a major in chemistry. Chemistry came very easy to me and I began tutoring students in college when I was a 17 year old freshman. I can recall the first student that I tutored. He was frustrated with dimensional analysis, but when I broke it down into its fundamental concepts, he slowly managed to grasp the concept and did well in his course. That student is now a pediatrician.

Even when I started medical school, my love for tutoring did not end as I continued to help students with college chemistry. However, it wasn't until I attend law school that I fell in love with helping students prep for exams. I learned how to teach the SAT and began tutoring high school students. Shortly after that, I took an interest in helping pre medical students prepare for the MCAT and spent nearly ten years working with individuals, organizations, and medical schools to help students "beat the exam." In addition to the SAT and MCAT, I have returned to my roots and have tutored students for the new SHSAT for NYC specialized high schools.

It is my mission to show students that no subject or exam is beyond their comprehension. By breaking down a topic to its basic elements, any student can achieve greatness. When I worked as a pre med advisor, I came across many students who did not start out strong, especially when it came to chemistry, but when I worked with them, they developed the proper skills, motivation, and encouragement to succeed.

Persistence will always overcome resistance.

I have had a passion for science all my life. With that passion, I have tutored chemistry, biology, and anatomy for almost twenty years. My passion has helped college students to succeed in their science pre requisites for medical school.

Law school teaches one how to be critical and analytical. I taught these same skills to students to help them succeed on the SAT Reading sections. If I can interpret contrac

Informative and Supportive Tutor (5 STARS)

Mr. Vernon was my MCAT tutor for about 6 months. We had two 2hr in-person sessions per week. Before our tutoring sessions began, Mr. Vernon gave me tons of information about the MCAT including test taking tips, how to schedule the exam, where to obtain free resources on AAMC website, the cost and effectiveness of Kaplan books, The Berkeley Review (TBR) Books, AAMC Question packs, and score breakdown. Our tutoring sessions always included several questions from one of the resources (TBR or AAMC), followed by explanations, and ended with review questions and readings for the next session. Mr. Vernon was always concise in his explanations and he provided a schedule to follow so that I stayed on track even when he wasn't with me. I appreciated this schedule because it kept me accountable for the material when he wasn't around. My experience with Mr. Vernon is that he is committed and cares about his student's progress. He is kind and understanding of the emotional tolls studying can take on one's mental health. I recommend anyone taking the MCAt to consider him for tutoring

Amazing and knowledgeable MCAT tutor!

Vernon has been an asset and is an amazing tutor, to say the least. He is very detail oriented and knowledgeable. A+ Vernon teaches content and reinforces that this is a marathon not a sprint. His ability to hone in on subject matter that needs to be learned sets his apart from others.
