I have a PhD in epidemiology and a Masters in Public Health from USC. My undergraduate degree is in biology. In college I tutored high school math and science. Before graduate school, I spent 3 years tutoring and teaching at a private home school. In graduate school I tutored graduate students in epidemiology and biostatistics. I currently teach health science subjects to undergraduate college students. My tutoring focus is in statistics, biostatistics, and epidemiology. I work with all levels of students and have successfully worked with many returning adult students who had math anxiety. In addition, I am available for help with developing research projects and writing.

In addition to my experiences and education, I have a good personality for tutoring. I am very patient and one of my main strengths is the ability to explain material in different ways so that my students will understand it. If someone is having trouble in a class understanding what the teacher is teaching, the student needs to hear the material explained in a different way. I can also explain complex ideas (such as those in biostatistics) using real life examples that can help in understanding.

Donna is an excellent teacher

Clear instructions, patient and extra knowledgeable. I’m looking forward to booking Donna again in the near future and so should you. She has great comprehension on statistics terminology as well as the equations

Very knowledgeable

Donna was my SAS tutor and she helped me grasp coding better than anyone else could. She is super knowledgeable in SAS coding and is very knowledgeable about epidemiological concepts. She is very patient and is willing to explain concepts more than once. I highly recommend her.

Easy to work with

Donna was kind and easy to work with. She did the math problems with me as I did them, which I appreciated. She talked through each problem with me and gave me feedback on how I was solving problems. Overall helpful and very pleasant!

From F to B in two months!

Donna helped me to get from an F on my midterm to a B on my final in just two months. When I met her I was already half way through my business statistics course and very very lost. I had met with several tutors already but being someone who finds math very challenging I hadn't had any luck finding someone who could explain the material well. Donna was extremely knowledgeable, always professional and very patient. What I appreciated about her most though, is that instead of just going through my homework with me, she was actually able to teach me the material and found different ways to explain things in 'non mathy' words. I would recommend Donna without hesitations and wish she could help me with all my college courses. If there is anything you think Donna can help you with, look no further!
