As a child of two math teachers, I was raised to not only understand math, but also to understand how to explain the concepts to others. My love for science came later, and I’ve spent my career in the health sciences field.
After graduating Emory University with a degree in neuroscience, and completing my masters in science at Penn State, I spent over 8 years working at the Centers for Disease Control. I recently returned to school to complete my PhD in epidemiology and biostatistics at USC, in which I am in my third year.
I have plenty of teaching experience, assisting in undergraduate and graduate level courses in molecular genetics, epidemiology, and biostatistics. I also regularly volunteer for after school tutoring at 826LA, and have previously volunteered with Big Brothers/ Big Sisters in Atlanta. These experiences, combined with over 12 years of babysitting and nanny experience have given me the proper tools on how to relate and effectively help students in their learning goals.
My teaching style is simple, but effective, and goes beyond “helping with homework”. I want each student to not only be able to complete the work, but to also understand the hows and whys of each answer. My specialties are in the math and science areas, but I also can help with test prep and computer programs (Microsoft Office, SAS, R, STATA, etc).
Rates can be adjusted based on tutor frequency!
I hope to hear from you soon!
