I recently graduated with my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Northwestern University. Here, I gained a deep understanding of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, as well as other classes specific to a physical therapy curriculum. Additionally, while I was enrolled at NU, I was selected by the faculty to serve as a tutor to 1st year students in the program in anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology.
I also have a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame. I have extensive coursework in math and science, but also took Advanced Placement courses in History and English in high school.

I believe this approach results in a better understanding and retention of the subject and hopefully will provide enhanced study skills for the future!

I appreciated that she had me to try to work through difficult problems on my own before helping me. I learned and understood more than I ...
