I have a Ph.D. in Public Health from Johns Hopkins University. My passion is to mentor students to develop the skills to understand quantitative methods (statistics, biostatistics, research methods, SPSS) in the health sciences. My technique is to focus on teaching skills that will not only get the immediate task done but to develop skills for long-term success. I also work with students improving their writing skills for graduate school or researching topics for course projects. While I prefer long-term assignments scheduled ahead of time, I may be available for urgent one-time needs.

I am a native Spanish speaker and have a son in middle school.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biostatistics

I completed one year in parametric and two quarters in non-parametric biostatistics during PhD program. I continuously enroll in monthly Webinars sponsored by the Academy of Health and the VA Health Services Research Centers. I have mentored over 50 doctoral students advising on methodology during the dissertation phase. I can assist graduate students as part of their graduate degree or professionals who need to prepare proposals to be submitted for grant funding.

Spanish

I can assist with scientific writing (using APA) for graduate course work in the behavioral, public health or life sciences. Most of my current students are doctoral candidates. I have extensive experience providing technical assistance to university professors or non-profit organizations to identify and prepare proposals for funding.

SPSS

I have over 20 years experience using SPSS and SAS for data analyses. I can tutor students needing to use SPSS for statistics courses at masters or Ph.D. level, or assist graduate students and professionals with questionnaire construction, data entry, and analysis as part of thesis research, dissertation proposals and poposals to be submitted for grant funding.

Statistics

I have tutored students in undergraduate, master's and Ph.D. programs taking basic statistics, multivariate statistics or application during thesis and dissertation.
