About Edwin

I earned a BS degree in Medical Biology, a MS in Immunology and Molecular Biology. I am currently a doctoral candidate matriculated in the Doctor of Health Care Administration (DHA) at the University of Phoenix. I was an adjunct lecturer at the City Colleges of Chicago for 4 years. I taught Anatomy and Physiology, Molecular Biology I & II (lecture and lab), and Medical Terminology.

I am a strong proponent of structured learning. Most biology concepts are intimidating if taught in abstract, Therefore, I introduce new concepts with current events. I integrate real-life examples in tutoring presentation and allow student to share personal experience. This approach generates enthusiasm and initiates discussion. I recognize students' cognitive diversity. consequently, I use practical applications to stimulate thought process and challenge problem-solving skill. In addition, I use charts, three-dimensional models, illustrative pictorial in my presentations.

I have 4 years of experience teaching anatomy, physiology, molecular biology and medical terminology. As doctoral degree candidate with a masters degree in immunology and molecular biology, I believe that the best approach to teaching is by using examples of real life events and recognizing that each student learning ability vary. For example, how would a student understand the biological mechanism and implications of Zika virus? Most students know that the 2016 Olympics is being held in Brazil. So, I would briefly chat about the U.S. team and gradually introduce the infection caused by Zika virus and then introduce the circulatory system.

I have a BS, MS and working on my doctorate degree. This shows that I strongly believe in education. Two of children are in the honor roll, both of them want to become doctors and find a cure for cancer. My oldest wants to become an astrophysicist and command the spacecraft to Mars. My 5 year old know the whole skeletal system and organs.

If I can teach my 5-year anatomy and physiology and he understands and remembers it, you will certainly excel.
