Meet the TutorsRx Team
Jaclyn Anderson, Founder
Jaclyn has always had a love for science and math since her early childhood and over the past 11 years tutoring, she has made it her mission to help others learn about these important subjects. Now as an aspiring doctor and second year medical student at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Jaclyn founded TutorsRx to make learning about these subjects easier for students in Denver and Aurora, Colorado.
In the past, aside from her tutoring experience and achievements in medicine, she has taught general chemistry courses at California State University, Sacramento, and presented original organic chemistry research at the 250th American Chemical Society National Meeting and Exposition in Boston, MA.
Currently she is a full time medical student, she volunteers as a program coordinator for the Colorado Dermatologic Society, and she coordinates the direction of TutorsRx while also still making time herself to personally tutor students who are in need.
Rick Anderson, CPA, Director
Rick has always had a passion for education, the study of personal development, and the science of creating leaders in modern society.

In the past, Rick was President and Treasurer of his social organization Sigma Pi, and Vice President of Beta Alpha Psi - an honorary accounting career networking organization.
