As a retired physician with 18 years of clinical and educational experience, I have always found that teaching, tutoring and/or mentoring students was one of my favorite challenges with the most rewards. Providing patient care was certainly rewarding, but after leaving clinical medicine, I decided to continue educating by tutoring both undergraduate and graduate students in subjects relevant to pursuing a career in healthcare. I thoroughly enjoy watching students grow and mature as they learn to work towards their goals.

Subjects I tutor include General Biology, AP Biology, College Biology, Cell Biology, Anatomy/Physiology, Psychology (all facets), Clinical Psychology and Medical Terminology. But, my real areas of expertise include Neuroscience, Pathophysiology, Psychopathology, Pharmacology and Psychopharmacology. Other topics of personal interest include medical ethics, the sociological impact of trauma and, the impact of the internet and social media on "post-COVID-19" educational platforms.

After receiving my Bachelors of Science degree in Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and my M.D. from the Medical College of Wisconsin, I went on to do my post-graduate training in Psychiatry in the U.S. Air Force serving military personnel and their families at Wilford Hall Medical Center in Texas. I then went on to complete a fellowship in HIV/AIDS psychiatry in New York City.

While working in various clinical and educational settings around the country, I have had many opportunities to observe, understand and embrace people from various cultural backgrounds. It still amazes me when students come from abroad, knowing minimal English, yet strive so hard to achieve their goals while also having to learn the "language" of the medical field. And so my teaching philosophy is simple: ANYONE can learn ANYTHING if they have the tools, the determination and willingness to do so. Socioeconomic barriers should NEVER dissuade a student from receiving a quality education.

Because every person is unique, I tailor my tutoring based on the individual needs and goals of my students. Therefore, I like to know a bit about a student's life, both in and outside the classroom. It is essential for creating a unique learning plan. I teach students "how" to think, rather than just "what" to think. This, I believe, is the cornerstone of effective problem solving and innovation. Asking Google or Alexa for an answer is not permitted with my students UNLESS the student has a solid grasp of the subject matter at hand. One of my favorite teaching techniques is explaining a complicated topic using everyday life examples or anecdotes from my experiences.

I strongly encourage all my students to be curious, ask questions and then challenge them with questions as well. Ask me anything and I'll know the answer about 75% of the time; the rest we find out together. I learn from my students as much as I hope they learn from me. Learning how to take whatever data or information is given and then thinking about HOW to use it to solve a problem or arrive at the answer is one of the key elements to being successful inside and outside the classroom as well as in life.

Outside of my tutoring commitments, I enjoy the solitude of a walk by the lake, reading a fascinating murder/horror mystery, watching vintage films, hanging out with good friends having "cell-phone-free" conversation and spending time with my ever so energetic cat, Taki.

Hopefully if you are reading this you are interested in one or more of the topics I tutor. I can only guarantee that you and I working together as a team will get you over any subject matter hurdles you might have. Passing, failing, getting the A or satisfying a requirement is ultimately your responsibility. I am only here to guide you with ways I know work for you to succeed.
