Co-Founder and Chief Education Officer
Ron passed his Rutgers Doctoral qualifying exam in Fall 2016. He is now officially a Doctoral Candidate. While he works to complete that, he is still very active as a college consultant, speaker, and Foley Prep Pro.
Ron grew up in leafy, lovely, and boring Haddonfield, NJ. He has always thought that his SAT tutor, Myles Bass, had the best job ever. Ron got 770M, 760V on his SAT, which got him into the Rutgers Honors Program on full scholarship. While studying Art and Art History in college, he tutored for The Princeton Review, then served as Director of Kaplan Centers in San Francisco, Philadelphia, and New York City before going back to work for The Princeton Review, where he was the college admissions expert in the Admissions and Publishing Division. He has an M.S. in Pure Mathematics and is a certified K-12 Math teacher who taught Multivariable Calculus (among other subjects) during his two years at Watchung Hills Regional High School. In 2014, he was tenured and promoted to Professor of Mathematics at Middlesex County College. He has more than 30,000 hours of teaching teachers and students.
After many years of driving, train-ing, and flying to family homes across the country, Ron opened his first Foley Prep office in Watchung in 2006. With Steve’s help, Foley Prep then moved to its 9-classroom space in Warren in 2013. In 2017 Foley Prep expanded and its Red Bank Hub was split into the Bell Works Building in Holmdel and Fair Haven Commons in Fair Haven. In 2019, 4 more hubs were opened in Freehold, Mountain Lakes, Bernardsville, and Haddonfield.
