I have recently completed a PhD program in epidemiology at USC. My undergraduate degree is in biology. In college I tutored high school math and science. Before graduate school, I spent 3 years tutoring and teaching at a private home school. I taught children from preschool through middle school in all subjects. In graduate school I tutored graduate students in epidemiology and biostatistics.
In addition to my experiences and education, I have a good personality for tutoring. I am very patient and one of my main strengths is the ability to explain material in different ways so that my students will understand it. If someone is having trouble in a class understanding what the teacher is teaching, the student needs to hear the material explained in a different way. I can also explain complex ideas (such as those in biostatistics) using real life examples that can help in understanding.
