    i need some help

    Would you mind to go over and iron out my grammar. pls..... tnx!

    Since high school, I have had this interest to study the human anatomy and physiology.
    My biology teacher taught us a lot of technical terms in which we had to memorize and analyze
    them. At first, I found it a little difficult and tedious. However, eventually overtime, I began
    loving it especially the respiratory and circulatory systems.
    Nowadays, there are several cardiopulmonary-related diseases acquired by the different
    people, and so I would want to study the different techniques for diagnosis and treatment of
    patients. I came to realize that respiratory therapy covers this kind of field of my interest. That is
    why I seek admission to this program.

    I'm not a teacher. I am a copy writer and grammar expert.

    The text flows so smoothly that I wish it were longer.
    (O)vertime is over time. I am sure it is just a typographical error.

    overtime should be over time.
    Overtime indicates hours of work performed at more than the usual number.

    With 'would', there is a conditional flavor to 'I would want', which makes the speaker sound more tentative and polite.
