I was born in Staten Island, NY in 1978. I have had a passion to become a physician (surgery) as well as teaching medical data/concepts since early childhood. My father whom is not only a surgeon in Florida, but also teaches medical students in their surgical rotations has guided and mentored me through this process. I have recently graduated from medical school and am currently preparing for my medical board exams hoping to start my surgical internship/residency soon. I have always asked the question "why?" during my education which has helped me to understand the processes involved instead of just memorizing the details. This has allowed me to develop methods of teaching science in a simplistic, easy to understand format. Once this foundation has been established, building a more complex UNDERSTANDING, not memorization, is key to retaining the information you've worked hard to learn, and at the same time, minimizing time consumed outside of the classroom.

Any questions or concerns regarding my experience will be attended to via contacting me through WyzAnt. Study hard and stay positive!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Microbiology

My Microbiology background consists of the medical association of bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites in relation to effects on the human body. I have knowledge in the structures of these organisms and their relation to infectivity, resistance to the immune system/mediations, and mutations. Also, I have knowledge in diseases, laboratory and clinical identification, and treatments of each specific organism in relation to the human body.

Nutrition

My background in Nutrition consists of the medical association of vitamins, sugars/carbohydrates, proteins, fats/cholesterol and other nutrients required by the human body and their biochemical synthesis/degradation and the clinical association of excess/deficiency in human diseases. I also have knowledge in dietary modification/treatments for these diseases.

Pharmacology

My Pharmacological background consists of the medical association of drugs and their mechanism of action, toxicities, and indications/contraindications in the human body. I am knowledgeable in the pharmacodynamics/pharmacokenetics, elimination/metabolism, cholinergic/adrenergic physiology, and receptor identification and physiology. I have a strong background in understanding pharmacology in correlation with human physiology with simplistic understanding in second messenger systems and biochemical processes leading towards releasing of physiologic/biochemical mediators resulting in stimulation/suppression of specific receptors and their physiologic outcome.
