All of David’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about David’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Anatomy

Human Anatomy is one of my favorite science topics, ever since I first thoroughly encountered the subject during my undergraduate Biology coursework at Purdue University. My understandings were furthered and deepened through The University of Iowa College of Medicine’s Physician Assistant program, where I worked with full human cadavers. Finally, my professional experience as an Illinois state-licensed Physician Assistant for 10 years hinged on mastering the principles and details of Human Anatomy, where I utilized them daily as an integral part of my daily work in practical, useful applications to enhance the health of others.

Biology

I am well versed in all biology topics, my knowledge derived from a B.S. in biology from Purdue University and then adding twenty more hours of post-graduate coursework in biology from ISU. My medical training from The University of Iowa College of Medicine enhanced my understanding of biology's concepts and provided real world applications for my science education. In my spare time, I've complemented my science background with numerous science courses from nearly all of the local colleges and have thoroughly enjoyed spending hundreds of hours teaching the concepts of standard High School Biology, AP Biology, and also college-level biology through WyzAnt.

Botany

I am well versed in Botany, my understanding derived from my B.S. in Biology from Purdue University and then adding post-graduate studies from ISU, where I enrolled in more Botany-related coursework. At Purdue, I majored in Ecology for two years, which included a significant amount of instruction in Botany, before deciding to expand my focus into General Biology.

Ecology

Ecology is a passion of mine, even majoring in the subject for two years at Purdue University, which provided me with a wonderful understanding of the concepts and principles of Ecology before deciding to expand my focus into General Biology. I enrolled in more Ecology courses as part of my post-graduate studies in Biology from ISU with additional Ecology coursework from local area colleges in my spare time.

Genetics

I am well versed in Genetics, my knowledge derived from courses in Genetics that were part of my B.S. in Biology from Purdue University, plus an important part of my post-graduate Biology coursework from ISU. My understanding of Genetics and its current applications was enhanced through The University of Iowa College of Medicine’s PA program, while its principles were incorporated into my decisions everyday as an Illinois state-licensed Physician Assistant for 10 years. Whether it’s Mendelian Genetics or special inheritance patterns, Genetic Disease, Molecular Genetics, Population Genetics, or even modern day Gene technology, the material can be truly fun if presented with the right approach and with the enthusiasm the subject deserves.

Microbiology

I am well versed in Microbiology, my understanding derived from courses in Microbiology that were part of my B.S. in Biology from Purdue University, plus an important part of my post-graduate Biology coursework at ISU. However, my understanding of Microbiology and its current applications was significantly enhanced through The University of Iowa College of Medicine’s PA program. The principles and concepts of Microbiology were incorporated into my decisions everyday as an Illinois state-licensed Physician Assistant for 10 years, especially when treating patients with infectious disease.

Pharmacology

Pharmacology is one of my favorite studies because of its close involvement with human anatomy and physiology. I scored within the top five in The University of Iowa’s College of Medicine for Pharmacology. Of course, I applied the principles of pharmacology in my everyday work as an Illinois state-licensed Physician Assistant in otolaryngology and gastroenterology, accompanied by a DEA license for schedule III-V controlled substances.

Physical Science

Physical science is usually a student’s introduction into the world of science and there is great satisfaction in unlocking that exciting world for them. Physical Science forms the scientific foundation for students that they’ll apply in their future Biology, Chemistry, and Physics courses. During my undergraduate years at Purdue University, I majored in Biology, minored in Chemistry, and excelled in two additional Physics courses.

Physiology

Human Physiology and Human Pathophysiology are some of my favorite science topics, ever since I first thoroughly encountered the subjects during my undergraduate Biology coursework at Purdue University. My understanding of Human Physiology and Pathophysiology was furthered through The University of Iowa College of Medicine’s PA program. Finally, my professional experience as an Illinois state-licensed Physician Assistant for 10 years hinged on mastering the principles and details of Human Physiology/Pathophysiology, where I utilized them daily as an integral part of my work in practical ways towards improving the health of other. Comprehending Human Physiology and Human Pathophysiology are pivotal in diagnosing disease and treating it effectively.

Psychology

My education involved many courses in psychology during my undergraduate and post-graduate work, from the very basic elements of psychology through the diverse world of abnormal psychology. My understanding of psychology was enhanced through The University of Iowa College of Medicine’s PA program, including a clinical rotation in psychology at The University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics in Iowa City. My degree includes training for professionally treating patients suffering with mental disorders. My efforts scored 93% in the Psychology Section of the national medical boards.

My experience for 10 years as an Illinois state-licensed Physician Assistant hinged on mastering the principles of psychology as an integral part of my daily work, communicating and developing connections with patients of all different mindsets.

Zoology

I am well versed in Zoology, my knowledge derived from a B.S. in Biology from Purdue University and then adding post-graduate coursework in Biology from ISU. A Biology curriculum includes extensive instruction in Zoology as does Ecology, in which I majored for two years at Purdue before deciding to expand my focus into General Biology.
