About Ruven

I earned a Bachelor of engineering in Chemical engineering from the Grove School of Engineering at CCNY and am currently enrolled in the Masters of Chemical engineering program at the same institute.
I have been tutoring math and chemistry since 2010 and picked up skills on the way. All the subjects I offer to tutor are subjects I have proficiency in, meaning I received an A grade in a course covering that material, and I am willing to pass the knowledge to the students.

In all the subjects I tutor I offer many tricks I picked up on my tutoring sessions and over my chemical engineering student career. I also offer the ability to talk to the student and explain why the things we do are important and how they contribute to his career, daily life and the world in general.

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.

Algebra 2

I have been an algebra tutor for over 4 years and studied algebra for 12 years of my life.
Due to the fact that I have been interacting with algebra for so long, I can do most Algebra problems in my head without paper or calculator. I teach many quick ways which are not in any book.

Calculus

I have been a calculus tutor for 4 years now, and studied calculus for 7 years.
Calculus has variety of applications in the day to day and science world and I would like to pass that knowledge to my students and show them that the subject is not useless like most students think.

Chemical Engineering

I have been studying chemical engineering for 2 years now and have acquired the skills required to ace the following courses: Fluid mechanics, Heat and Mass transfer, Transport Operations, Separation operations, Process Control, Reaction Engineering and Material Science.

I have tutored the subject for half a year now and am looking to pass the knowledge to my students.

Chemistry

I have been a chemistry tutor for a year, and studied chemistry for 7 years.
Chemistry is the science of matter and has to do with atoms which are the building blocks of our world (ignoring particle physics); hence this subject is extremely important.
I want to show my students how to solve chemistry problems and how to appreciate the subject.

Differential Equations

I have taken this course at the City College of New York and received an A.
I am proficient in the subject, and as a chemical engineer, we constantly use this branch of math to solve problems.

Elementary Science

I am a chemical engineering major with a vast knowledge of science.
I read scientific articles daily and enjoy all science subjects.

Hebrew

I have lived in Israel for 18 years and mastered the language while I lived there. I passed the Hebrew regions in Israel and have taken a qualifying exam to pass Hebrew 1, 2 and 3 courses in the United States at the City College of NY.

Organic Chemistry

I have been an organic chemistry tutor for a year, and studied organic chemistry for 3 years.
Organic chemistry is the science of organic matter and is the basics of every biological process, hence this subject is extremely important for all majors.
Organic chemistry students usually memorize mechanisms which is fine but understanding why things happen helps more and will make remembering easier.

Highly recommend!

Before studying with Ruven, I was really behind in my calculus class and had minimal hope of doing well. After only 2 lessons, I caught up and actually learned material ahead of my class. Now I feel really confident in calculus due to Ruven tutoring me. Ruven's style of tutoring is hands-on and he makes the subject clear. I highly recommend him to anybody that is struggling or wants to get a head
