About Anita

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. I was a teaching assistant for an upper division biology course at LMU, Invertebrate Zoology Lab. In addition to administering the weekly sessions and practical exams, I held review sessions before all exams for my students. Students who attended these sessions scored considerably higher than students who did not attend. In addition to organized tutoring sessions, I have tutored friends and family members in science for many years!

If my qualifications meet your needs, please contact me for more information. I'd be happy to discuss things in further detail with you.

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.

Epidemiology

I received my Masters in Public Health (MPH) degree from the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public Health in December 2015. I majored in Infectious Diseases and Microbiology (IDM) with an emphasis on Pathogenesis, Eradication, and Laboratory Practice. Epidemiology was the foundation of my major, IDM. Therefore I was required to take multiple epidemiology courses, like Introduction to Epidemiology and Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases throughout graduate school. I also took an Introduction to Epidemiology course as an undergraduate student at Loyola Marymount University prior to graduate school.
