About Chand


Bio

My name is Dr D and I am a scientist and professor of human anatomy & physiology. I did my university work in biomedical engineering & physics. My MS and PhD are in cardiovascular and hemodynamic physiology. As a professor, I have taught hundreds of students the principles of human anatomy & physiology over the past six years. I have also taught and tutored physics, statistics, differential calculus, algebra, organic chemistry, general chemistry, biostatistics, biochemistry, English...

My name is Dr D and I am a scientist and professor of human anatomy & physiology. I did my university work in biomedical engineering & physics. My MS and PhD are in cardiovascular and hemodynamic physiology. As a professor, I have taught hundreds of students the principles of human anatomy & physiology over the past six years. I have also taught and tutored physics, statistics, differential calculus, algebra, organic chemistry, general chemistry, biostatistics, biochemistry, English literature & composition, human anatomy and physiology, biology, multivariable calculus. I have also helped students with the GREs, MCATs, PCATs, DATs as well as medical students with the USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 exams.

My key strength that I believe benefits the students I teach and tutor is being able to critically scrutinize information and incorporate various opinions/perspectives into my own. Doing so allows me to develop a thorough understanding about a topic. I then provide that knowledge to my students through comprehensive explanations and reinforced practice.

I believe a student should always feel comfortable with the people that are providing them education. My students usually seek out my help because of how uncomfortable they are with their current instruction and/or the material being taught. I work very hard to ensure that my students are at ease with me, enough so that they can learn more effectively and develop the sense of confidence that they are striving for. As an educator who has learned a lot over the years, I try to remember that students have various styles and methods of learning. As such, I must always remain open to self-edification and dynamically adapting to best suit the needs of someone asking for my help.

Here is how I tutor:
I tutor online using the Wyzant lesson space which allows me to share my screen and do lessons/lectures using my own online whiteboard. Usually a student will provide me with all of the material/notes and assignment(s) that they would like me to go over which then allows me to customize a lesson plan for us. Additionally, I use a combination of my own questions as well as the questions my student would like me to go over to reinforce any and all of the requisite concepts/principles. It is a very interactive process with text/video/voice chatting because I want my students to feel like they are engaged at all times. I hope this gives you a good idea of what to expect if you decide that you would like to work together. Also, I can provide you with some links to videos that outline exactly how I teach and tutor. Feel free to ask about those if you want to get a better idea of who I am as an instructor and tutor.

Test Preparation

MCAT

MCAT

With backgrounds in biomedical engineering & physics, biochemistry, biostatistics, and human anatomy & physiology, I am very comfortable with all of the content that is tested on the MCAT. I couple that knowledge with extensive experience with critical analyses and comprehensive problem solving strategies to help my students achieve the scores they desire. I have helped more than a hundred students with the MCAT exam over the past ten years achieve scores in the >85th-90th percentile.

AP Physics 1 Tutor for My Daughter

My daughter had a great initial session with Dr. D. My daughter said he was very knowledgeable and his teaching style was very effective. Looking forward to him helping her improve her grades. More review to come.

Patient, knowledgeable, and understanding tutor!

I went into my first session of tutoring with Chand with next to no confidence and within 45 minutes he was able to break down the basics that I didn't understand and work through problems to build up my confidence. Within one session my homework score went from a 33% to a 100%. He was so patient with me even when we had to go back to the very beginning basic steps and when I got confused. 5 days ago, I didn't think there was any chance that i would be able to pass my upcoming test but now thanks to Chand, I have so much more knowledge and confidence! I love that he takes time to make notes that he then shares with you after the session. I can tell that Chand really cares and that is very important to me. For the first time since the semester started, I feel like I will be successful!
