My training includes Master's and Doctoral degrees in Exercise Physiology and Educational Research. I am also experienced as a professor in undergraduate and graduate level statistics, as well as being well versed in statistical programming. I have been a student much of my life so I understand the frustrations. I think it is important to keep learning simple by obtaining the skills and knowledge to break down problems so solving them is easy. I have been a college professor for many years now so I have a good understanding of what teachers are expecting.

I think using my skills to help you in understanding statistics, anatomy, physiology and kinesiology can prove very beneficial. I am also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist so if any one has any tutoring needs in the area of exercise physiology, weight training, etc., I am there for you.

Biostatistics

While working as a research assistant at University of Miami, one of my main functions was to program all statistical analyses for the laboratory using SAS programs. In addition to work for the lab, much statistics were performed in conjunction with various physician's, i.e. Diabetes Research Institute at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Statistical design and programming was also done for doctoral candidates dissertation. As my area of study was exercise physiology, all statistics were based on physiological functions as well as risk factor assessment and anthropometric measurements. I have also contributed to scientific journal articles, i.e. Journal of Applied Physiology as well as presenting at American College of Sports Medicine annual meeting.
