I truly believe that education is key to success, and therefore I love to tutor! My upbeat and patient personality, diverse background of knowledge, and creative approach to studying will enhance your experience during our tutor sessions. I love to bring in outside knowledge, tie different concepts together, and help encourage my students that some extra practice can go a long way. I will tailor each session to your personality and work hard to find what study type is right for you. We each have different personalities and therefore we cannot use a universal tutoring method for all students. I will prioritize working on your weaknesses but also plan on challenging your skills overall.
I received my Bachelors degree in general biology from Loyola Marymount University in 2014, and continued on to pursue a graduate degree immediately after. My passion for healthcare, community service, and medicine led me to the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public Health. From Pitt, I received my Master's of Public Health (MPH) degree in December of 2015. I majored in Infectious Diseases & Microbiology, with a concentration in Pathogenesis, Eradication, and Laboratory Practice. Alongside my MPH degree, I completed my Teaching Certificate at the University of Pittsburgh's School of Education. My longterm goal is to become a physician and to use my education towards practicing medicine and conducting clinical research.
My passion for tutoring began when I was just a high school student many years ago. I attended a K-12 private school and decided it was time for high school students to offer their skills to our youth. I started a student club that specifically focused on reading and spelling in two languages. Throughout college, I tutored many underprivileged high school students as part of my service requirement. I also tutored a transitional kindergarten science class for a local elementary school, and worked in small groups to allow the children to start first grade without any holdbacks the following year.

Anita has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 2 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Knowledgeable, friendly, and patient biostats/epi tutor!! Literally the best.
Anita is amazing at simplifying concepts and reworking them in a way that makes it easier to learn and remember well past just "learning to learn to pass the class." She is down-to-earth which makes it so much easier to not be shy or "feel stupid" to ask questions on material. This alone is such a huge component on why she is amazing at what she does and why her clients come back to her or reference her to other classmates-- I know I did for my biostats class!! Her explanations on where your thought process is wrong never feels belittling. My success in biostats last term is due to her knowledge and ability to tune into to her client's learning needs and help them succeed. I have no doubt that for epi this term, it will be the same. If you are in need of a tutor for epi or biostats--Anita is the tutor for you.Chelsea, 14 lessons with Anita
Brilliant and Friendly
Anita is not only knowledgeable, but she is also able to break-down epidemiologic concepts and calculations in ways that are easy to follow and grasp. And I didn't feel bad asking questions and/or for her to repeat a concept. Under her tutorship, I gained confidence in my understanding of epi!Stephanie , 6 lessons with Anita
Knowledgeable and wonderful tutor
Anita helped me through my epidemiology class in graduate school. Before seeing her, I was receiving 60% on quizzes. After meeting with her the first time I bumped by quiz grades to 80%. Toward the end of our 5 sessions, I got a 92% on my final and a 100% on my last quiz. She breaks down complex concepts into simple terms that are applicable to many situations. I passed my epi class with flying colors, and I believe a large part of the reason I did so well is because of Anita.Kasharena, 5 lessons with Anita
Kind and extremely knowledgeable
Anita worked with me on Epidemiology for the last several weeks of class. I felt like I was having trouble understanding the concepts in the class and wasn't always sure how to tackle questions. Anita was able to explain the topics thoroughly and from several different perspectives until it clicked for me. I feel confident walking into the final and honestly I couldn't recommend a better tutor. I do well with kindness and patience and she provided that in abundance. I am so grateful to have worked with her.Lauren, 4 lessons with Anita
Anita is the best!
Anita is an incredible tutor. She meets students where they are and breaks the material down in a way that makes it easier to decipher. I call her the Biostats Whisperer! Super patient. Super kind. Book her today!Anthony, 2 lessons with Anita
GWU's Biostats class is without a doubt one of the most disorganized courses I have ever taken. The layout and teaching methods are subpar and much too confusing. Anita is patient and extremely knowledgable regarding all material, and I would recommend her to any and all fellow students!Patrick, 4 lessons with Anita
Fabulous Biostatistics Tutor!
Anita was a fabulous tutor for Biostatistics! She really broke the material down to an understandable level and ensured I was follow along by asking interactive knowledge-check questions. She took the time to answer the questions that I had and made herself available after our sessions if I had any further questions.Nicole, 3 lessons with Anita
Best tutor I have worked with
Anita was the best tutor for me because she explain very complicated BioStat terminologies in simple words easy to digest for non mathematical background students like me. I was a le to bump up my grades after practicing with her and pass my class. I’m going to continue with her for my upcoming classes and I’m glad I found her and worked with her. She is the best! Thanks Anita!Cindy, 4 lessons with Anita
Knowledgeable, patient, overall excellent tutor!!
I cannot say enough about Anita. She makes overwhelming material feel completely manageable. She is completely knowledgeable, patient, and helpful. I could have never gotten through biostatistics without her!Marjie, 6 lessons with Anita
I previously left a review for Anita when she was assisting me with Biostatistics. At the end of one of our sessions I asked how comfortable she felt with some certain epidemiology concepts I was struggling with based off her background. Of course she could help with that too! So I was able to get help on both subjects I was struggling with this semester. Started off with a 69 average in BioStats and by the end heading into the final was averaging an 85. Cannot speak highly enough of Anita and her skill set and ability to make you think about a problem versus just giving you an answer. Will always recommend in the future to other students.Erica, 9 lessons with Anita
