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 or who need help with GRE test prep. In addition, I am available for help with developing research projects and writing. I am very familiar with the APA format.

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.

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.

Great Tutor

Donna was able to really teach us in a way that we could understand. The content for me is very difficult but she taught us the basics in a way that I could understand and build off them.

Perfect for AP Stats

Donna was the perfect tutor to assist with AP Stats! She was able to quickly focus my attention on the important concepts, explain them clearly, and help me understand how best to read the questions. Would make a really great teacher! Very grateful for all her help - brought my grade up one full letter.
