I am not a professional teacher, but teach as a byproduct of the successful professional application of my listed subjects. Having achieved professional success after initial academic difficulty, I am often a better teacher and mentor because I understood what made subjects hard, and how to overcome that difficulty. Although I now hold active license as a pharmacist with a PhD in pharmacology, I faced real difficulty as a student.

I hold a special interest in helping students learn to self-coach and have a special place in my schedule for the student who is working on improving a recent setback.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is the part of math that really is used all the time in the real world. Let me help the parent help the child. That is a true Win + Win.

Chemistry

Basic chemistry supporting advanced studies in pharmaceutics and analytical chemistry.

GED

I focus on the math and science subjects for GED preparation and am confident that I can help you overcome past problems.

Microsoft Excel

Excel is a fundamental tool useful in almost all science and business courses. It is the simplest and cheapest access for statistics software for most people.

Pharmacology

Pharmacology is the study of the effect of drugs, including expected therapeutic benefit, adverse effects, mechanism of action, absorption, distribution and elimination. This is one of the fundamental sciences tested on the Pharmacy Board exams, which I passed originally in 1978 and again in 2009. I am a licensed pharmacist in three states (Illinois, Missouri, and Kansas). Beyond the basic requirements for the practice of pharmacy, I also earned the PhD in pharmaceutical science, emphasis in pharmacology, from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy, in 1991, and have practiced more than 30 years in the field of new drug development in multiple therapeutic areas.

Relevant Degrees:

B.S. Pharmacy (1978), University of Missuri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy

Ph.D., Pharmaceutical Science – Pharmacology (1991) UMKC School of Pharmacy

Physiology

The fundamental mechanisms of the human body underlying coursework in medicine, nursing, pharmacy or other health related fields.
