About Steven

Hello! My name is Steve and I am a resident physician in Detroit. I have worked part-time as a tutor throughout high school, college and medical school, helping students in multiple math and science topics. Such topics have included high school chemistry, college general/organic chemistry, college biology, college calculus, college trigonometry, medical school biochemistry, and medical school anatomy/physiology.

I am very patient when it comes to working with individuals who are having difficulty with a particular subject and often spend additional time outside of the actual tutoring session reviewing concepts in the subject so as to make the time spent tutoring as efficient as possible.

Qualifications:
M.D. - University of South Florida

B.S. Chemistry - University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

I look forward to helping you succeed in your academic endeavors!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

Obtaining my chemistry degree required me to build a very strong foundation in mathematics, from basic algebra to trigonometry, to multivariable calculus. Math continues to be an interest of mine even after graduation from college and medical school, and I have maintained my strength in this subject through tutoring.

Algebra 2

Obtaining my chemistry degree required me to build a very strong foundation in mathematics, from basic algebra to trigonometry, to multivariable calculus. Math continues to be an interest of mine even after graduation from college and medical school, and I have maintained my strength in this subject through tutoring.

American History

When discussing history with students, I attempt to convey the importance of the major events in United States history, their causes, and how the results of those events shaped the years to follow and, if applicable, how they affect our lives today. Memorization of dates and facts are important, but I have always felt that understanding how those dates and facts fit into the larger picture is what makes history more meaningful to students and will stick with them on test day and beyond.

Anatomy

As a physician, I am a lifelong student of human anatomy and physiology and enjoy helping others to better understand this fascinating subject. I have prior experience tutoring both college level and medical school level anatomy and physiology. When tutoring for anatomy and physiology, I like to discuss the topic rather than just lecture to the student, and often use examples from my personal experiences in medicine to illustrate concepts as needed.

Chemistry

I studied chemistry for four years as an undergraduate at the University of North Carolina and obtained a Bachelor's of Science in chemistry in 2009. During my time in college, I acted as a personal tutor for friends, reviewing general and organic chemistry, and served as a professional tutor for the NCAA for Division I athletes who were struggling with general chemistry. I understand that chemistry is a difficult subject for many students and am very patient when walking others through how to solve chemistry problems. In chemistry, my style of tutoring stresses understanding concepts and why the formulas make sense rather than simply memorizing a list of equations.

Geometry

Obtaining my chemistry degree required me to build a very strong foundation in mathematics, from basic algebra to trigonometry, to multivariable calculus. Math continues to be an interest of mine even after graduation from college and medical school, and I have maintained my strength in this subject through tutoring.

Organic Chemistry

As a chemistry major and premedical student, understanding organic chemistry was paramount to the rest of my collegiate success. After performing well in the course, I began to tutor friends and roommates in organic chemistry and helped many of them to succeed as well. I am probably one of the relative few individuals who legitimately enjoys organic chemistry and would be happy to share that excitement for the subject with others.

Physiology

As a physician, I am a lifelong student of human anatomy and physiology and enjoy helping others to better understand this fascinating subject. I have prior experience tutoring both college level and medical school level anatomy and physiology. When tutoring for anatomy and physiology, I like to discuss the topic rather than just lecture to the student, and often use examples from my personal experiences in medicine to illustrate concepts as needed.

Precalculus

Obtaining my chemistry degree required me to build a very strong foundation in mathematics, from basic algebra to trigonometry, to multivariable calculus. Math continues to be an interest of mine even after graduation from college and medical school, and I have maintained my strength in this subject through tutoring.

Trigonometry
