I have always had a passion for teaching math and science and for several years have tutored children in middle school, high school, and college in mathematics and the sciences. I obtained a B.S. in molecular biology at the University of Michigan. This degree included biochemistry, 5 semesters of calculus, and 2 semesters of physical chemistry. I then attended and graduated from medical school at Southern Illinois University in Springfield. I practiced pediatrics for 7 years before changing my specialty to anesthesiology.
Subsequent I taught residents at Loyola University Medical Center and the University of Chicago Medical Center for roughly 14 years. I have taught medical students, residents, and fellow physicians, and have given numerous lectures and published several research papers. Currently I work in medicine only part-time because of a heart condition.
I have broad knowledge and an infectious, genuine interest in mathematics and the sciences. I have assisted school teachers teaching mathematics to 3rd and 7th grades and tutored high school and college students in chemistry and physics. I enjoy spending time with children and young adults and being able to help them understand & appreciate physiology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics through high school and college. My approach is not centered on memorization of formulae but understanding basic concepts.
