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.

Patient, personable, thorough
Dr. D is passionate about helping students and it shows in the way he teaches. He is kind and will review even the most basic concepts to help build a strong foundation for the material. He has been helping me with a graduate level intro biostatistics class and I have learned more from him that I have from my classroom sessions. He reviewed the material before our session and gave me notes and feedback afterwards so I could continue learning between our sessions. He breaks down even the most cryptic problems and concepts so that they're easily understood. He gave me confidence in understanding the material and my ability to move forward through the rest of the semester and even provided extra materials and tables that simplified the information. Besides being a wonderful teacher, he has a phenomenal sense of humor! I definitely recommend him for anyone that needs help in math.Joya, 8 lessons with Chand
Dr. D. was the second tutor I used for my graduate BioStatistics class. He was excellent. He understood how I personally process material which is crucial for successful instruction. I will use him for the remainder of my term. I haven’t been in a math class for over a decade and he was patient and motivating. I highly recommend him.Christopher, 1 lesson with Chand
Makes graduate level biostatistics a breeze
Dr. D. and I went over how to use the Z table to find the probability that corresponds with the appropriate Z score. We also went over percentiles and scaling. Dr. D. has an amazing ability to simplify complex concepts in a way that is easy to understand and fun to learn. I highly recommend him.Michelle, 9 lessons with Chand
Dr. D. has an excellent talent for communicating difficult concepts in plain language.
Off to a good start in biostatistics. Feeling more confident about doing well in this class after our first session. Excellent input on how to use the text.Paul, 8 lessons with Chand
Best math tutor ever!
I'm taking a graduate level biostatistics class as part of my MPH degree. Despite having no background in math Dr. D. broke down biostatistics in a way that was easy to understand, and also made the learning process fun. I started out as a nervous novice, and by the end of our session I had confidently grasped the concepts. Dr. D. also provides all the materials you need and uses his own unique curriculum to reinforce learning. I highly recommend him. Excellent first class. I'll be booking him again for more sessions.Michelle, 2 lessons with Chand
Extremely helpful and friendly
Chand was the most phenomenal tutor I have ever had. He simplified statistics into practical terms so that I could understand my testing material. He went out of his way to schedule additional tutoring with me before my test dayDominique, 3 lessons with Chand
Knowledgeable and makes complex topics make sense
Chand and I went over the basics of statistics and probability. I was very confused prior to my session and now I feel much more confident! I’m excited to continue to learn!Naomi, 6 lessons with Chand
Patient, Knowledgeable, and Informative Instructor
Chand's knowledge in the course has proven to be very valuable. He exhibits patience and has a true passion for learning from his students and provides detailed instruction. His ability to simplify even the most complex equations to increase the student's confidence and ability to grasp the concepts is amazing!Vernon, 7 lessons with Chand
Dr. D. is wonderful!!!
I am applying for med school and Dr. D. provided some truly great info. about the process and what was involved. His insights into how I could proceed with my prerequisite courses were outstanding. He offered truly invaluable information about ways I could improve my application. It was a treat to speak with him. I encourage anybody whose interested to definitely give him shout out. Once again thank you Dr. D!!Wes, 1 lesson with Chand
Insightful and great communicator
Lessons with Dr. D. are phenomenal regardless of where you are in your education or application process. Dr. D. is instrumental in building my medical school application by breaking down step-by-step requisites to complete, providing an overview of the process, and patiently dispensing complex information.Chris, 6 lessons with Chand
