I have an interest in tutoring all aspects of the biological sciences, physiology, anatomy, microbiology, and biochemistry. My undergraduate degree is in Biology and I have a Doctor of Medicine degree from Drexel University's College of Medicine. I also have valuable insight about how biological and medical concepts have practical application in the working world.

I have taught general science at the high school level as a substitute teacher in the Philadelphia school district and am really effective at simplifying complex concepts to enhance student comprehension. I have tutored my own children who are attending Dartmouth College, Gettysburg College and Drew University.

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.

GED

I have a great understanding of all the subjects that you will be required to pass for the GED.

NCLEX

Most of the subjects tested for on the NCLEX are subjects that I mastered in medical school and passed on the National Board of Medical Examiners for physicians. Additionally, I have had many years of clinical practice and have participated in ongoing continuing medical education courses.

Nutrition

As a Biology student and medical school graduate, Nutritional Science was a subject that I was required to learn. Additionally, I have done much self-study on the topic as it related to patients and the health of family and friends.

Pharmacology

I studied and completed a pharmacology course in medical school and have applied pharmacological principles in the practice of medicine for many years as a certified physician.
