Personal Statement

I have a B.A. in chemistry and biology from Dartmouth (summa cum laude), a Ph.D. in chemistry from UCLA, and am currently a lecturer in UCLA's Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry. I have also taught chemistry in the Los Angeles Community College District and at USC. In addition, I have four years of experience teaching chemistry and other sciences at the high school and junior high school levels, and am currently tutoring students in both chemistry and biophysics.

I have a passion for tea...

Reviews

I am trying to learn Mathematica better and am using to do data analytics. Aron was very good at working with me on cleaning data and trying different things using Mathematica and Excel. Again he worked "with me" vs doing it for me.

Aron is a superb tutor. My daughter was struggling in her 10th grade chem class, particularly in the areas of the Mole Concept, Stoichiometry, and the Electromagnetic Spectrum. I had previously hired two different chem tutors from two different tutoring sites; however, their methods of tutoring were non-personalized and non-flexible and my daughter felt frustrated and discouraged after the sessions. I found Aron through Wyzant and he is amazing. We communicated several times over a period of a few days as he specifically wanted to know what challenges my daughter was facing in chem and what she wanted to accomplish during the session. He asked me to send him her study guide, handouts and online textbook beforehand so he review them and be well-prepared the moment he walked in the door. Aron was very intuitive and adjusted his tutoring style to fit my daughter's learning style and pace. He made sure she understood each concept before moving to the next by having her articulate her understanding and explain her reasoning when she worked on problems. My daughter experienced significant learning gains in a short period of time and came away from the session feeling confident, encouraged and motivated.
