Bio

I graduated with honors in Biochemistry with a minor in Rhetoric and Astronomy at the University of Maryland, College Park and am a recognized member of the American Chemical Society (Department of Chemical Education). My strengths are in biochemistry, but I have produced, and was awarded, an honors citation thesis in the fields of Solid State Chemistry and Condensed Matter Physics (superconductors and the like).

I graduated with honors in Biochemistry with a minor in Rhetoric and Astronomy at the University of Maryland, College Park and am a recognized member of the American Chemical Society (Department of Chemical Education). My strengths are in biochemistry, but I have produced, and was awarded, an honors citation thesis in the fields of Solid State Chemistry and Condensed Matter Physics (superconductors and the like).

In college I have tutored for undergraduate courses and have been a teaching assistant in introductory biology, chemistry, and organic chemistry courses. In addition I am a Red Cross and AHA Certified Instructor in BLS, ACLS, and Wilderness First Aid.

I completed graduate level work at the University of Pennsylvania while teaching high school chemistry (honors and AP) as a Teach for America alumnus in Camden, NJ. I taught students grades 8-12 for 4 years before pursuing doctoral studies. During that time I have become very familiar with the "Common Core" and "Next-Generation Science" standards, as well as NJ/PA State Testing; I can easily cross cover to other standardized secondary school exams. Since around that time (2012) I have also been teaching MCAT, DAT, OAT, and PCAT courses for major test prep companies.

I received my MD at Uniformed Services University as an active duty officer in 2018. I was also honored to be awarded the Presidential Unit Citation for a Corps Deployment to Monrovia, Liberia to treat Ebola patients in 2015. I am currently a resident training for head and neck surgery. I have just returned from several years of travel and work at military health facilities to resume Wyzant tutoring.

On a personal note, I'm friendly, down to earth, and have mostly evening and weekend flexibility in my weekly schedule. In my spare time I have I've written novels, produced films, and continue to pursue new art ventures in my spare time. And I often enjoy musical theater, running, and traveling. So it's safe to say I'm a jack of all trades, mastering a few of them. I hope to share my insights with you!

I have limited availability so please contact me first to find out where I am or if my online tutoring services will be amenable to you! :)
