I am an experienced and enthusiastic educator/scientist with teaching expertise in human biology and physiology, and medical pharmacology. This experience includes teaching in pharmacy school, medical school, and college level courses. I have a broad understanding of the subjects, can adapt the tutoring experience to the specific student educational level, and provide career advice and educational direction.

With respect to teaching philosophy and methods, my approach is to assist and guide the student to thoroughly understand concepts, reasoning, and critical thinking. I am strong advocate that success comes through understanding the subject, not just remembering facts.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biology

I have a Ph.D. in biological sciences and have significant experience in college level teaching and tutoring.

My primary areas of expertise are: cell biology, physiological aspects of biology, anatomy, biochemistry, science and critical thinking

Biostatistics

I have a Ph.D. in pharmacology with over 25 years in biotechnology and basic science discovery research. More specifically, my research has focused on in vitro discovery pharmacology, experimental design, data analysis, and data presentation (publications and presentations).

I have published ~ 145 peer reviewed studies, and have ~140 presentations at scientific meetings.

In addition, I currently tutor a WyzAnt student (graduate school) in the pathology of renal disease by assisting in literature analysis, experimental design, instrumentation mentoring, experiment methods and biostatistiscal interpretation.

With respect to my target students, I would be able to tutor and mentor in:

- scientific methods
- experimental design of research studies
- scientific thinking and critical analysis
- basic biostatistics employed in biological and medical research
- experience with Microsoft Excel analysis, PowerPoint Graphics and presentation
- experience with curve fitting and Sigma Plot graphing for analysis and presentation

In summary, my skills are orientated to helping both novice and advanced biological students in developing, implementing statistically scientific studies,using statistics to analyze results, and employing appropriate graphical and presentation techniques.

MCAT

I have a Ph.D. in pharmacology/physiology and have extensive teaching medical pharmacology/physiology and related human biology topics. More specifically, I can assist MCAT studying in:

-pharmacology
-physiology
-anatomy
-cell biology
-medical biochemistry

NCLEX

I have a Ph.D. in pharmacology/physiology and experience in college education, pharmacy school, medical school, and individual tutoring in the areas of: biology (general & cell), anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and pharmacology.

More specifically, I can assist and train students with with the basic science portions of the NCLEX
exam.

Pharmacology

I have a Ph.D. in pharmacology and experience in college education and tutoring. My primary expertise is in the properties and actions of drugs on the human body (general pharmacology).

Physiology

I have a Ph.D. in physiolgy and have previously taught in:

- Pharmacy School
- Medical School
- College

In addition, I have been a scientist in the Biotech industry, and have broad experience in Physiology, Biology, and Pharmacology.

Statistics
