LaSalle University (Biology)
Thomas Jefferson University (PhD)
I am a compassionate, understanding, seasoned instructor who currently teaches subjects at the secondary and collegiate level.
I hold a PhD in Biochemistry and am able to make complex concepts easy for the student to understand. I have a wealth of experience in chemistry, biology, anatomy, and physiology and have always been successful in making students understand the subject matter.
Students that I have tutored in the past typically increase their grades 15-20 points, or 1.5 to 2 letter grades.
I enjoy tutoring students because I get a personal feeling of satisfaction when I observe the positive changes associated with their understanding of the subject matter. I am a compassionate, understanding, seasoned instructor who currently teaches subjects at the secondary and collegiate level.

Stephen P. helps me understand concepts on a deeper level than simple memorization. He makes me really learn to understand the information and connect it to previous things I've learned. He's taught me the bigger picture of physiology and he applies each individual concept to a bigger understanding of WHY something would happen how it does rather than just teaching me that something happens. This lesson, he talked me through a multitude of practice questions that he prepared and we discussed each answer in depth together. Then at the end of the lesson, he let me take the questions home in order to use them as yet another study tool for the test. He is a great tutor and has helped me raise my grade in my physiology class from a 61% (on the first test) to an 88% on the second, and I know I'll do even better on the third test and the final because I truly understand the inner-workings of the material now.
I would recommend Stephen P. to anyone even remotely struggling in anatomy & physiology.
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.
