About Gianna

My students find me engaging, enthusiastic and entertaining. I have a knack for identifying weaknesses and clearing uncertainties by simplifying complex concepts. This helps students understand the subjects with which they're struggling. As a result, their grades improve.

I graduated from the oldest Medical School in Europe, University of Padova, Italy, with Summa Cum Laude and moved to the United States shortly thereafter. I taught principles of clinical medicine at the University of California Irvine and the University of Florida. Two years ago I took a position as professor at a Caribbean medical school, where I prepare students for USMLE Step 1, 2CK and CS and 3. I also teach Anatomy, Physiology and biochemistry. Most of my teaching has been to medical students, nurses and residents.

I have taken TOEFL and am an FMG myself. My command of the English language is solid, as I published more than fifty peer-reviewed articles in the English literature.

Additionally, I'm a published author: A short story published in the anthology entitled 'Being a Woman Surgeon' published by Gordian Knot in February 2015.

I'm very familiar with USMLE, ECFMG, TOEFL, MCAT and NCLEX-RN.

I can only teach online.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

For the last three years I have taught Anatomy and Physiology, in addition with their Clinical Correlations at a medical school and online.

I have taught Anatomy for surgery residents for most of my career as a general and trauma surgeon

Career Development

As a retired general surgeon with over 35 years of experience in the clinical and academic field and as a foreign medical graduate, I'm experienced in the career of medicine at large and surgery in particular.

I find that most medical students are unprepared for the complexity of the medical field and have many questions.

I provide valuable information for the development of a successful career in medicine.

Italian

I'm a native Italian speaker with impeccable knowledge of the English language. I've published peer-reviewed articles both in English and in Italian.

Physiology

I've been teaching physiology in the classroom, on line and in the clinical arena for 35 years. I see physiology as a critical component of the complex machinery of the human body. The best way to understand physiology is to think of how our systems work, in isolation and in concert.

TOEFL

I speak two languages and took TOEFL myself. Knowledge of grammar and familiarity with words are important, but being comfortable with the American Culture will help you the most.
