- Renny M.
Ronnie is exceptional. As a student, I appreciated his ability to explain concepts clearly, and I was especially grateful that my endless stream of questions was welcomed and thoroughly addressed. Ronnie made me feel comfortable asking the questions I feared were obvious to everyone else, and he provided answers in a way that would eliminate confusion. Through him, I was able to re-learn not only the content of Bio 200, but also to take tests efficiently and to prepare for them properly. Ronnie is also the type of person who always does more. Every review session, he would pass around an enormous bag of candy that he had bought himself, and before tests, he always brought me my favorite chocolate bar “for good luck, but you don’t need it,” he would say. Outside of review sessions, Ronnie also freed his schedule in order to tutor students individually, and to answer questions that we had while studying on our own. He also opened his home one night during reading period when I was studying with some friends, so that he could answer any questions that arose while we were reviewing. As I got to know Ronnie more, I began to recognize his capability, generosity, affability, and dedication, and I’ve realized just how lucky I am to have had Ronnie as an instructor and a friend.Apr 21, 2019

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do have a standard pricing system for my lessons, and it depends on the difficulty of the subject and how much time I have to put in for preparation before each lesson. For example, I would charge more for organic chemistry tutoring than for high school biology tutoring. Generally speaking, I charge $25 per hour. Of course, I am open to negotiation, since I have worked with financially disadvantaged students in the past. If you are traveling from far away, I do take your travel distance into account. I also offer discounts to students who stick with me for a long time!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?In addition to being the student's formal tutor, I always try my best to get to know the student on a personal level. I am genuinely interested in people's stories, interests, and beliefs, and this helps me tailor my explanations to the student's needs. My first tutoring session is always a preliminary meeting to discuss the logistics, and it is free, so you can try out the service decide whether you want to continue risk-free.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated from Brown University, an Ivy League institution, in 2015 with a Bachelor's of Science in Neuroscience. I am currently a PhD Student in Neuroscience at Emory University, where I combine biology, computer science, and mathematics into the emerging field of bioinformatics. I have been teaching and tutoring since sophomore year in high school. After, I was a teaching assistant at Brown and then a co-instructor for an elective course at a nearby high school in Providence. Importantly, my experience has shown me it is not enough to simply know the material. Being a good tutor requires excellent communication and explanation skills.
