I am a retired Assistant Professor of Family Medicine from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine and Yale University Medical School. I've been teaching clinical medicine for over 33 years.

I have been teaching medical students and tutoring undergraduate and graduate nursing students in Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry and Pharmacology. Need help reviewing for the USMLE, NCLEX, or the MCAT? I recently took the AP Biology and BC Calculus SAT exams and scored in the 99% for each.

I trained with a well known test prep company to teach the MCAT medical school entrance exam. I am currently under contract with a major international text book and online academic provider to produce instructional videos in Human Genetics and Biochemistry. I am teaching Chinese medical residents and physicians via web portal in Beijing, China.

I tutor both in local libraries and online. I have a large screen touch monitor and a digitizing pad. I can share a white board, electronic text book, PowerPoint slides or any other electronic media.

I am a board-certified Family Physician. As an undergraduate, I completed 4 semesters of single and multi-variable Calculus with an academic average of 100% before my 18th birthday. My undergraduate STEM GPA was 3.95.

I teach online using a shared whiteboard, PowerPoint, and electronic textbooks. We can review your previous assignments, lecture notes, or anything you can display on your computer. I am available weekends and evenings for your convenience, and on short notice if you have an exam coming up shortly.

Epidemiology,

Epidemiology

I am board certified in Family Medicine for 33 years and a retired Assistant Professor of Family Medicine. Epidemiology is a required discipline in the practice of Family Medicine. An understanding of population health, disease surveillance, infectious diseases and preventative health is part of the practice of Family Medicine.
Nursing

Nursing

I have been working with BSN, APRN and CRNA students for several years. Pharmacology and Anatomy and Physiology seem to be the most challenging subjects and where I get the most demand. Both present a great deal of material to master in order to do well. I like to break down the subjects into parts, by organ system. I can bring real life examples of real patients to help understand the importance of the material and bring it into context. The key to a large problem is to break it into smaller chunks, and to put it into clinical context.

Mastering Microbiology requires an understanding of Cellular Physiology, Anatomy, and general Physiology. I used a clinical microscope in practice on a daily basis, and I can provide clinically relevant context and examples of real-world use of the knowledge. Microbiology is the gateway for a number of rewarding careers in nursing, medicine, and research. Understanding what you view with a microscope is critical to future studies.

Knowledgeable, Patient , amazing tutor

Very helpful and have heaps of knowledge of anatomy. I'm an optometry student and I'll strongly recommend medical student to Carl. He will be able to help out your problems and I'll definitely recommend my friends to him as well.

Julia, 1 lesson with Carl

Carl was very thorough, patient and knew the subject matter.

He made me think and analyze the problems. I understood him better than my professor. I would recommend Carl to anyone looking for a tutor in epidemiology or statistics.

Pharmacology

Dr. Carl was the absolute best! We went over my pharmacology PowerPoint (slide by slide). He took his time explaining the concepts and making sure I understood the material. I wish I would have sought him earlier. He was very patient. If you need help contact Dr. Carl. Thank you again for everything Dr. Carl
