Former PharmD student turned Embalmer in South Jersey Tutors Biology/AP Ad Nauseam

Methodology

My teaching method is a combination of repetition and real-life examples. While I want students/peers to read their material thoroughly, I can also allow them to view "textbook situations" through "real life" examples. Its easier to understand through example, isn't?

Background

I am a former PharmD resident intern that switched to being an Embalmer/Funeral Director intern. While having a background for biology and anatomy/physiology, I also am fluent in Spanish, Organic and Embalming Chemistry. I began tutoring in Algebra, Spanish and Chemistry in college, but quickly branched out to Biology and AP.
