I have a love for teaching science. I also love teaching Greek and Spanish. I am a physician and Assistant Professor a local teaching institution with over 9 years experience teaching and mentoring students in the the clinical setting. For this reason, knowing how the body works is a must for me to be successful. I incorporate my knowledge when training my interns in the clinical setting as well as when treating my patients.
I earned my Bachelors of Science degree in Health Science from Benedictine University (1996) with a minor in Spanish. Later, I earned my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the National University of Health Sciences (2002). Most recently I earned my degree in Masters of Science in Advanced Clinical Practice (2013) also from the National University of Health Sciences. I have an extensive history and training in the field of science and clinical science. With over 8 years of teaching experience, I enjoy engaging with the students and always challenge their critical thinking skills. All while having fun learning.
Along with having a love for teaching science, I also have a love for the Greek and Spanish languages. I incorporate my trilingual speaking and communication abilities in the didactic studies and clinical setting. In addition, I have compiled and taught "Medical Language Spanish" at the doctorate level.
My approach includes clarifying any misunderstanding in the areas of concern, followed by repetition and application of information. I have worked with students in the post-graduate level, but am open to teaching even younger people. I believe in constant interaction...bouncing ideas back and forth....and application of the area of study, when appropriate. I utilize examples and "tricks" to memorize specific things. I consider myself down-to-earth and will never look down at someone who is insecure in the material. This is why I am here...to help! Although one-on-one tutoring is beneficial, groups of students can be even more beneficial, as different ideas are provided in addition to encountering different angles of thinking. By hearing another person's perspective, you'll be surprised to see what you know...and don't know!!!
Feel free to email me any additional questions you may have. I look forward to working with you on a one-on-one level or in a group (whichever best fits your learning style) to further enhance your critical thinking skills! I have a love for teaching science.

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.
Although I am born in the USA of Greek immigrant parents, my first language was Greek. I am fluent in speaking Greek, reading and writing Greek. I have successfully finished over six years of a Greek school in my younger years; I currently assist my two kids with their Greek school homework.
