About Sal

Hello,

My teaching philosophy: "Learn like you are going to live FOREVER."

I am a physician and have been teaching and tutoring college students in the Sciences since 2006, mostly in Anatomy & Physiology (A&P) and Biology. I also have home-tutored high school students with remarkable results. Most college students who take my classes are Pre-nursing students, but I also get many students going into Respiratory Therapy, Radiology, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Exercise Physiology, Biology and even some in becoming physicians, themselves. I can even relate things at a high school caliber and make things 'CLICK'... The "A-Ha" effect!!!

I have a knack of making a very difficult concept into something that is much more easy to grasp. I create many analogies that students are familiar with in their everyday lives and show how these can be applied to learning this "Monster" of a course. Did you ever think that metabolism is an amusement park with the Kreb’s cycle being the ferris wheel? How can you remember the most abundant ions in and out of the cell? Can a picture of "salty banana" make it clearer so you will never ever forget that concept? The "A-Ha" Effect!!!

I have also given seminars on memory techniques for all people. What a wonderful application to use in your studies! Mneumonics are used as well as simplistic drawings (my so-called "Art Therapy") to make it easy to comprehend and remember for those pain-staking A&P or Biology exams.

So give me a try and make your educational journey to your career goal a fascinating ride that will astound you. I'll be able to release those hidden gems that you didn't realize you had and get you back on track to your career goal.

I normally charge $65-75/Hour (Depending on how far I need to travel). We can arrange for a more conducive common/public place.

Looking forward to meeting with you.

Much regards,

--Sal (Dr. "G")

Approved subjects

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.

Genetics

Being a physician and teacher at a college level, I have taken advanced biology courses in both genetics and embryology. I've tutored in both as well. I can translate the following subject areas (and other related areas) into how they are significant in each student's coursework and career goal.

- DNA Replication
- Transcription
- Translation
- Protein synthesis
- Punnett Squares
- Mutations
- Congenital diseases
- Cancers
