About Ray

I am a retiree of the University of Pennsylvania, where I was a biomedical researcher in two of its research centers. My studies and training were aimed at elucidating the parameters of IVF, and I'm proud to see all these babies born as a result of the collective efforts of all the scientists that corroborated in this field over the years. My basic training was in classic Biology; my Master's degree was in Plant Biochemistry; my Ph.D. work was in Reproductive Physiology; and my post-doctoral training, at the University of Western Ontario in London, centered on Reproductive Biochemistry.

At the University of Pennsylvania I was a member of the Monell Chemical Senses Center, an interdisciplinary research organization dedicated to the study of taste and smell, where I was the "house endocrinologist", working on many diverse projects. Later I moved to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where I managed the Department of Anesthesia's research laboratory. After I left the university, I was a long-term math and science substitute teacher in the middle and high schools of Cherry Hill, NJ, and in 2011 moved to online teaching. I am currently the Science Editor of an online teaching company in Carrollton, TX. In this capacity I review, correct, and edit all the science-related lessons before they are published; the subjects I am dealing with are varied, including biology, chemistry, forensics, human behavior, medicine (for nursing school), and physics. I tutor online and by Skype, but most of all I like frontal teaching.

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.

Botany

I have a B.Sc. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, in Biology, with majors in Botany and Biochemistry; an M.Sc. from the Hebrew University in Plant Biochemistry, and a Ph.D. in Animal Physiology. I have taken extensive courses in Zoology, Physiology, microbiology, genetics, ecology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, biochemistry, and anatomy.

Knowledgeable, Patient, Sense of Humor

Ray has a good personality and appreciates that not all students learn the same way. He worked well with my 14 year old son and puts science into practical everyday terms so that it is easily understood. Ray concentrates on good study habits as well as subject at hand which is very helpful.
