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 Laboratory Sciences from Rush University (RU), and two Bachelors of Science, one in Chemistry from DePaul University and the other in Biology from University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). I also have completed a full graduate internship including research project in medical sciences 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 technology: MLS(ASCP)cm March 2008 though February 2017.
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 research laboratories at the College of Medicine at the University of Iowa and in industrial research and development labs in the 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 art at NCS Pearson. Moreover, at the present time, while I continue to actively work as a tutor at WyzAnt, I am successfully completing advanced courses toward other graduate specializations. These graduate courses are offered in the biological sciences Graduate Colleges at both UIC and NEIU.
My eventual goal s to get a PhD in the medical sciences.
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 an orchestrated manner, to make me a rare species in the world of education.
In terms of my fee, it is a fair hourly rate for how much yo get. As many subjects as I tutor, it is reasonable to expect rate variability at mutually-agreed terms.
My tutoring services encompass four major study areas:
1. SCIENCE: physical science subjects including chemistry 1 and chem 2, organic chemistry, physics, as well as entire introductory and advanced biology courses and entire biomedical sciences including cell biology, human anatomy&physiology 1(A&P 1) and (A&P 2), biochemistry, microbiology, immunology, biochemical genetics and genetic analysis, neuroscience, pharmacology, physiology, pathophysiology, and other required courses for the medical and allied health professions programs, including Physician Assistant studies, Medical Technology program, Pharmacy Technician, Dental Assistant, Nutrition and dietitian, as well as College of Nursing, College of Pharmacy, and College of Dentistry.
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 prp Exams: Student will learn both valuable principles and strategic techniques to prepare for the 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, GMAT, GRE Math, GRE Verbal and GRE Writing, Prenursing Test(TEAS), National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), Pharmacy Technician (PTCE), Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT), Dentistry Admission (DAT), Dentistry National Board Examination(DNBE), 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.
