Hello,
My name is Robert C.-
I have 30 years of experience in teaching and tutoring. My undergraduate degree is in Biology- with a specialty in Neurological Biology. I have worked as a Respiratory Therapist specializing in Adult and Neonatal care. As a Tenured Professor I specialized in Cardiopulmonary Care and was the lead professor and Program Director for the Respiratory Care Program at Napa Valley College.

I have taught Basic and Advanced Anatomy/Physiology; Pharmacology; Basic Chemistry (specializing in Acid-Base Balance; Geriatrics; Basic and Advanced Biology; Basic and Advanced Cardiac Care; and interpretation of ECGs. Preparation for National Boards in Respiratory Care, Nursing and Emergency Care Professions is also available.

I love teaching and have spent my life devoted to improving my teaching style to fit the needs of my students. I am honored to say that I was selected as Distinguished Teacher of the Year at Napa Valley College.

I have attended, completed, evaluated and developed many online courses. I earned a M.Ed with a specialty in Online Teaching and Learning. My thesis was based on the efficacy of distance learning for Nursing, Health Care and Advanced Cardiac Life Support.

If our geographical distance is prohibitive for face-to face instruction, I would like to suggest that you consider Online Teaching and Learning. Studies have shown that Distance Education students typically mirror, and often EXCEED, students learning in a face-to-face classroom. WyzAnt has an excellent online classroom that we can use.

My entire life has been devoted to teaching and learning. I have learned there are many approaches to teaching and there are many ways in which people learn.
My approach to teaching and learning is to have have fun and create a safe, supportive and creative learning environment that can be applied to "real world " experience. Learning is not just memorization- it is understanding, evaluating and applying.

THE BEAUTY and ART OF TEACHING and LEARNING: There is an internal feeling that cannot be described when a student "gets it"; the light comes on or shines brighter-and a smile is created.

I would enjoy working with you to achieve your goals- I am one click away...!

My undergraduate minor is in American History. Although I have not taught "for credit" classes in this subject, I have been a guest lecturer and have taught community education classes in the past. I am an avid reader of American History and love learning as much as I can. I was a member of American History forums and belong to several discussion groups.

Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

Course curriculum in earning my Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology required successful completion of the equivalent of 7 quarters of organic chemistry. In addition, my Respiratory Care education required organic chemistry as part of the core curriculum. Beginning and advanced concepts and application in organic chemistry were an integral part of the Biology and Anatomy and Physiology classes that I taught for almost 30 years within Health Care.
Pharmacology,

Pharmacology

Part of my undergraduate work and my degree work in Respiratory Care required extensive knowledge in all aspects of pharmacology. I have taken several pharmacology courses and taught 18 week modules in my Respiratory Care program. I was a yearly "guest" lecturer in the Associate Degree Nursing program. I have extensive training and usage of pharmacology were utilized in my Advanced Cardiac Life support classes as well as Cardio-Pulmonary, Neonatal and Adult Critical Care and Nursing Trauma classes.

Help with the GI system

Liked how we backed up and looked at the location of the organ before going further in the question

Makes complex material easy to understand

Dr. C was the best tutor I've ever had. He really takes the time to tailor each session to your specific needs. He spent time outside of our sessions to find graphs, graphics, articles and resources that helped me better understand the material we were covering. He has a way of explaining physiology in a way that helped me easily grasp concepts that I had been struggling with. He was very patient and kind in his explanations, and made sure I understood our discussion by asking questions that were thought provoking and challenging in a gentle manner. He is phenomenal with physiology and pathophysiology and I will definitely will be seeking his guidance in the future.
