I have a Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry and have many years of experience teaching at the University undergraduate and graduate levels. I have tutored many high school and college students in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Algebra and Prealgebra, and have had excellent results. My approach to tutoring is a very simple one: teach the basics in a way the student "relates" and understands. I do not believe in rote memorization. Chemistry and Math are disciplines that build from the basics. I do N... [more]
My approach to teaching algebra is similar to that used in teaching other subjects. I try to impart an understanding of the fundamentals, with logic and reasoning, and shy away from memorization, unless necessary.
I have a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and have taught Chemistry, Biology and Pharmacology at the University level. I have done independent research in Biochemistry and Biology, and have a good knowledge of Biology and how it relates to the cell, and the organism.
High school and college level general chemistry (inorganic), introductory chemistry, and analytical chemistry are some of the areas in which I can help. I approach tutoring Chemistry from a point of view where I explain concepts in an easy to understand manner, and supplement what the text book has to offer. I have had great success with all of the students I have assisted.
My approach to pre-algebra is slightly different from what the text books cover. This gives the student a "second" way of working out the problems and an alternate way of trying to understand the basis of the various operations.
Nursing involves many disciplines, including math, chemistry, pharmacy, pharmacology, anatomy, and many others. I try to integrate all of the life sciences and math into my approach in assisting nursing students so that they might gain a full and complete understanding of the concepts being studied. I have a background in Pharmacy, Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Life Sciences, which makes me uniquely qualified to integrate all of these subjects into the field of Nursing.
Elementary Math is probably the most critical subject in mathematics because it sets the stage for all other math courses. My approach is to make sure the student truly grasps the concepts involved, and does not just "memorize" the processes or procedures that are used to achieve the correct answers to problems.
I have a Ph.D. in Biochemistry/Neuroscience, and did 4 years of postdoctoral study in Neuropharmacology. I also taught medical pharmacology at a State Medical School for more than 25 years. Finally, I have conducted laboratory research in pharmacology for more than 2 decades, and have published in peer reviewed pharmacology journals.
