Qualifications & Experience

Hello, my name is Sam and I am a cardiovascular physiologist and professor of Anatomy & Physiology with a background in biomedical engineering and physics, biostatistics, and biochemistry and am currently finishing up my doctorate in cardiovascular physiology. My research is focused on microcirculation, hemodynamics, oxygen transport, and the effects of aging on skeletal muscle hemodynamics. I have been a professor for the past five years and have taught hundreds of students the fundamentals of human anatomy and physiology. Prior to that and up to now, I taught organic chemistry and tutored middle & high school students as well as university students in various STEM classes. I have provided educational support in the following classes: physics, statistics, differential calculus, algebra, organic chemistry, general chemistry, biostatistics, biochemistry, English literature & composition, human anatomy and physiology, biology, multivariable calculus. I have helped students with the graduate entrance exams which include the MCATs, PCATs, DATs, and GREs. I have also helped medical students with their USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 examinations.

One of my greatest strengths is being able to critically analyze things and consider multiple opinions and perspectives. I've gained a lot of knowledge over the years but even that has its limits and I think it is important to remain open to being able to change ones views or thoughts on a matter, be it of a personal nature or something epistemological. Outside of my professional endeavours, I love cooking, biking, building/tinkering, and comedy. I don’t liken myself to a comedian by any stretch of the imagination but nevertheless, I love to make myself and the people around me laugh. I work in very serious and stressful environments so being able to add levity to situations has been integral for me and how I manage stress. I take my work and what I do very seriously, but by no means do I take myself seriously; I am my biggest source of laughter.

A student should choose me to help facilitate their learning because of my extensive experience with teaching and tutoring. All of these experiences imparted on me what I believe to be the fundamental tenet for any prospective tutor and pedagogue: there is a spectrum over which students and individuals learn & assimilate information. As such, you must remain fluid and open to continually learning, evolving, and adapting to various learning styles to provide effective edification.
