About Dione

I am a former surgeon who worked in the field for over 30 years. I have taught residents and medical students throughout my er career. And I raised a son who graduated with honors from Carnegie Mellon University.

I graduated from the honors program in medical education, completing medical school and college in six year. I was both a National Merit scholar and a National Achievement scholar.

And given my lifelong love of learning, I am now a post doctoral scholar at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School. The most important thing a student has to learn is 'how to learn.' I love using a variety of teaching techniques and reinforcement to build a student's confidence.

I have strong math skills and problem solving are still a part of my everyday life. As a student, I do a great deal of computational biology relying on calculus, algebra, and reduction.

Overall, I have the following credentials: Board Certified in Head and Neck Surgery; former Clinical Instructor at Jersey City Medical Center; and graduate student at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School GPA 3.5. I am available after-school, weekends and during summer vacation.

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.

Anatomy

As a board certified surgeon for many years, I am able to teach anatomy by visualization for retention and understanding. I currently engage in test taking at University of Pittsburgh Department of Biomedical Informatics.
