While the discipline of tutoring is anything but easy, my philosophy of tutoring is something rather simple: a good tutor is the one who stays organized and prepared and combines the knowledge of the subject with the passion for teaching it. My gift is that I can deliver the information and analysis to the student, where they can gain confidence and renewed interest in a subject that is hard to understand.
My academic background includes a Master of Science degree in Medical Sciences from Rush University (RU), and two Bachelors of Science, one in Chemistry from DePaul University and the other in Biology with premedical concentration from University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). I also have completed a full graduate internship in bio-medical technology at the University of Chicago in Hyde Park (UC). In addition, I have proudly earned a National Honor Award in clinical laboratory sciences from the American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP) as well as a current certification in Medical Laboratory Sciences MLS (ASCP)cm.
In regard to my work experience, it includes tutoring math and chemistry at DePaul University as well as biology, anatomy and physiology at Oakton Community College (OCC). Furthermore, I have worked for several years as a research assistant in the biochemistry and immunology research laboratories at the College of Medicine at the University of Iowa and as a research technologist in industrial research and development labs in the greater Chicago area. Furthermore, I have a combined total of about fifteen years of work experience in education as a teacher at SABIS High School, adjunct faculty in biology at Idaho State University (ISU), and academic professional specializing in evaluation of national exams in the fields of math, science, and language at NCS Pearson. Moreover, at the present time, while I continue to work as a tutor at WyzAnt, I am successfully completing advanced courses toward another advanced graduate degree. These classes are offered in the Graduate Colleges including University of Illinois at Chicago.
Consequently, this unique background of scholastic achievements, rich work experience in teaching, educating and tutoring, and valuable work experience in research and applied science combine together, all in a relevant manner, to make me a rare species in the world of education.
In terms of my fee, it is the same as the average national tutoring hourly rate average, making it very cost-effective. As many subjects as I tutor, it is reasonable to expect rate variability at mutually-agreed terms.
My tutoring encompasses four major study areas:
1. SCIENCE: physical science subjects including chemistry 1 and chem 2, organic chemistry, geology, physics, as well as biology and bio-medical sciences including cellular, organismic and ecological biology, human anatomy and physiology 1 and 2, biochemistry, microbiology and immunology, genetic analysis including classical and biochemical genetics, physiological psychology, neuroscience, pharmacology, pathophysiology, and similar courses required for the medical and health sciences degrees, including Physician Assistant studies, Medical Technology, Nutrition, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Dentistry science curriculums.
2. LANGUAGES: Greek and English speaking, listening, reading, & writing
3. MATHEMATICS: prealgebra, algebra 1 and algebra 2, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, stats and probability, and statistics.
4. College Entrance Exams Prep: I have the expertise in teaching both valuable principles and pragmatic techniques to prepare for national standardized exams. Armed with powerful preparation method, you will be ready to tackle your sneaky opponents, the Admissions Tests' Makers. These tests include ACT:Math, ACT:Science, ACT:English and ACT:Reading, PSAT, SAT, General Management Test (GMAT), Graduate Record Examination GRE: GRE:Math, GRE:Verbal and GRE:Analytical-Writing, Prenursing Test (TEAS), Predentistry (DAT), Pharmacy Technician (PTCE), Prepharmacy (PCAT), and last but not least, the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).
Most importantly, I work in earnest to make you enthusiastic to learn and naturally score high in your exams.
