About Mohammed

Since graduation from medical school, I have always been in touch with teaching and tutoring, starting from tutoring medical students and interns in the hospital wards, then more recently teaching the United States Medical Licensing exam (USMLE) to friends and colleagues up until today. I'm an international physician with American certification.

I passed all USMLE exams. I have received ECFMG certification (Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates) from Philadelphia, and BLS (Basic Life Support) certification from California School for health sciences.

In addition, I had almost a year of language teaching experience at the Dearborn Community Center weekend school here in Michigan. In the school, which I worked in last year, I used to teach students with the age groups ranging between 7 to 10 years, using interactive approach and special rewards given to outstanding students. As for the adult students, they are mostly related to the health field.

Recently, I have been tutoring a medical student about the various clinical subjects as well as their basic principles such as those related to anatomy and physiology. Again, with the friendly interactive approach that I use, I often receive a very positive feedback on many of the sessions that we do together. So, through wyzant, I'm glad to welcome students in the different fields that emphasize the study of basic or clinical health sciences, namely those subjects that I'm going to mention below, with a little more detail.

I will be delighted to spend afternoon hours tutoring students in areas of nursing, physiology, anatomy, microbiology and biostatistics as I have performed particularly high on those subjects on my exams. In fact, my interest in teaching comes from my continuous desire to learn and read, realizing that being a tutor means that I'm in a dynamic viable educational environment. This is something that I would like to share with my students, as I believe we should enjoy what we learn. I'm personally a friendly, humble, science-loving person. I hope and believe that this will be reflected very positively on my students as well.

Now, you might wonder what kind of a plan will be used as we work together on any of those subject areas. Here are some tips on the key strategies that we will be using as we go through any of those subjects.

Nursing, for example, is a subject that is highly clinical in nature. As I have been in contact with the different types of nursing tasks that are performed both in the hospital wards and in the ER, I can say that making use of this clinical experience will definitely help you become a successful nurse. You should also be aware of the importance of math in performing a nursing task such as calculating medication doses especially when giving those preparations to different age groups. In regards to anatomy, you need to understand that it is a subject which can be effectively understood through images and possibly videos, as much of anatomy is about visual memory.

Biostatistics, on the other hand, needs knowledge of equations, article interpretation and perhaps some math. One critical tip is to not merely memorize the equations but also understand how they came to be the way they are. Also giving live examples on statistical error will help you detect the various kinds of bias which can appear in a test question. Likewise, physiology has its own unique nature, and needs you to handle the material in a unique way too. So, graphic representations and curves come to play a significant role here. Last but not least, microbiology with those numerous bugs and drugs can be largely simplified using flow charts.

In addition, I will be glad to have you involved with your own thoughts on what needs to be improved. And remember, there will be homework, and self-assessment tools that will be used periodically to monitor your progress.

I look forward to hearing from you and to working together on your subjects of interest!

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.

Biostatistics

First of all, Biostatistics was part of my own curriculum when I was in medical school and I passed its test successfully.
Secondly, it was part of the United States Medical Licensing exam that I took and I performed highly in Biostatistics. I can actually forward you a copy of the Biostat performance evaluation, as part of my USMLE test result.

Chess

Chess is a very intellectual game which I have been playing for almost 20 years now. I played with friends, family and with computer software reaching advanced levels. As a physician, I recognize that chess is an effective tool to grow one's intellectual abilities and to improve planning and long term thought process. As far as I'm concerned, each move in chess needs to be thoroughly calculated. It doesn't have to consume a lot of time though. In reality, practice makes perfect. One tip I would like to mention here is that whatever move you want to make, be sure that it is going to be protected. In other wards, before trying to establish a good offense, make sure you have a solid defense!
