Acme Physical Therapy
I received my doctorate in physical therapy in August 2018 from University of South Florida. I am currently working on my orthopedic residency so I can become a certified orthopedic physical therapist. Over the years of going to PT school and working, I am a movement science expert. That requires me to know the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular system very well. I can assist students with anatomy and physiology including effective learning strategies and pneumonics.
In my profession, we evaluate, diagnose and treat patients with myriad medical conditions. We allow patients to optimize mobility through functional movement patterns and apply manual techniques throughout the human body. My job requires me to understand how the joints and muscles work together in order for me to treat the patient effectively.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
My typical process involves the student sending me the topic they want to work on prior to meeting to make the session flow easier. Also, I ask the students to review the material once before we meet so they can come up with questions that can be addressed in the meeting. I allow the students to contact me anytime if they have any questions.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I achieved my doctorate in physical therapy which required one year of medical school and extensive training in anatomy including cadaver dissections and teaching anatomy courses to the first year PT students.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
It depends on the extent of the material, my range is from $30-50/an hour.
How did you get started teaching?
I have always had a passion for teaching. During my undergraduate studies, I would tutor other students in chemistry. In PT school, I would tutor first and second year PT students with anatomy and movement science courses. I also had to teach a movement science course to the firs year students.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with undergraduate and doctoral students.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
My advice for a student looking for a tutor in my expertise is to find someone who will take the time to teach you effective strategies for learning the human body. You want to learn anatomy in a way that you will remember long term and not just for an exam where you dump all the information after you take it.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
If they require additional time or specific learning environment they learn best in.
