Medical doctor with experience in both low and high level Writing, Mathematics, Anatomy & Physiology, Biology, and Chemistry

Methodology

I have always been able to break down complex subject matter into easily understood concepts. From special education in mathematics, making algebra and geometry available to learning disabilities to graduate level sciences I will always make the difficult easily understood.

Background

I have worked in the health care, legal and education systems over the course of my career and can be the perfect tutor from high school math and science to college and even graduate level sciences including mathematics, anatomy, biology and chemistry if you like making difficult information easily digestible so that layman and scientists alike are able to easily grasp topics in mathematics, science, medicine, nursing, and even writing both scientific and no scientific non fiction essays I have over 20 years of experience in these areas and would love to help you achieve your goals. My price is negotiable on certain low level subjects. One of my greatest joys is helping others understand and learn difficult subjects and make the grades they are truly capable of, if not higher.
