About Aaron

Hello Everyone! As a recent VCU graduate I am currently studying for the MCAT. While at VCU I worked for the Campus Learning Center tutoring subjects such as general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, qualitative chemical analysis, general biology, physiology, genetics, cellular bio, microbiology, immunology, and college and university physics. Each week we had training exercises that further developed our tutoring skills. Skills such as recognizing strengths and weaknesses in a student's study habits and learning how to utilize those strengths to the student's advantage while working on exercises to improve the weaknesses.

Excelling in a subject is much more than just memorization, it's understanding. By using real world, tangible examples I can help students grasp complicated ideas. Everyone has the capacity to learn, but everyone learns differently. By catering my tutoring to an individual's needs, I can promise success in the class room.

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.

Genetics

At VCU I received an A in my genetics course. I also tutored genetics through the Campus Learning Center for many semesters. I had many reoccurring appointments with students who were struggling with the course. Many said I helped them get A's and B's after they were initially struggling.

Organic Chemistry

I absolutely love organic chemistry. It has been my favorite subject in college and I truly enjoy helping others learn organic as well. At the Campus Learning Center at Virginia Commonwealth University I tutored Organic Chemistry I and II. I received A's in Orgo I and II and a B in Advanced Organic Chemistry. I received the American Chemical Society award for undergraduate in organic chemistry.

Study Skills

Study Skills are one of the most crucial skill sets needed to excel in any education environment. While working for the Campus Learning Center at my university, we had weekly training sessions with fellow tutors and educational PhD students. We would learn about different studying techniques, different learning styles, ways to implement certain studying methods for particular learning styles.

My personal method for studying is a little bit at a time. Studying for just 1 hour five days a week is much more beneficial than studying for 5 hours once a week.

Another important factor is the quality of studying. Some people can get away with simply reading through the chapter. Others need to take notes, make highlights, or do practice problems to test the knowledge that you learned. The main thing is to find something that works for you and stick with it.

Phenomenal tutor! — Aaron is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. He always explains things in the simplest terms and he helps you work through equations and problems without doing them for you. My grades have improved considerably after starting tutoring sessions with Aaron, I have an A in chemistry where I had an F when I took it last semester. If you are looking for a great tutor, look no further! ...
