My name is Colleen and I am an adjunct college/graduate school instructor. I am also a certified tutor with four years experience. I have two distinct specialties: standardized test preparation (ACT, COMPASS, GED, GMAT, GRE, ISEE, MAT, PSAT, SAT, SSAT) and coaching students through their master's theses and dissertations. In addition to these specialties, I tutor in a number of subjects, including Algebra I and II, Biostatistics, Causal Modeling, Computers, Economics, Econometrics, Multivariate Analysis, Pre-algebra, Probability, and Regression Analysis. I am currently getting certified in K-12. I am certified in many subjects but the above subjects are the ones I tutor in the majority of the time. For a complete listing of the subjects in which I am certified, please see my profile page.
Furthermore, I am proficient in several computer packages (both word processing and data analysis) including: Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, LIMDEP, LISREL, SAS, and SPSS. I am presently learning R and anticipate being able to tutor in it within the year.
As an active sports enthusiast, I am able to coach the following sports: Tennis, Swimming, Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball and Softball. I have played each of these either at the junior varsity and/or varsity levels, intramurally during college or graduate school, and/or just for fun. I have a second-degree yellow belt in Bushido Kai Karate (a Japanese Martial Arts form).
My education consists of a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biological Sciences from Mount Holyoke College, a Master of Arts degree in Public Health Policy and Administration from the University of Michigan, and a Doctorate in Social Welfare Policy from Brandeis University.
I am also a Certified Pharmacy Technician. I am available to help you study for the certification test.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please send me an e-mail. I try to respond within 24 hours.
