Hello! I recently graduated from Princeton University with honors in the Politics department and a double minor in Statistics & Machine Learning and American Studies. In college, I was the head tutor on campus for introductory statistics and R Programming courses, a teaching assistant, and taught English abroad for two summers. My experiences working with English-learners abroad taught me to focus on growing a student's confidence level in their target subject -- confident students learn more and persevere when the content gets challenging.

Before college, I built my own tutoring business in my hometown and worked with students ages 3-15. I had students with incredibly varying needs and loved the growth I saw in each of them.
I love helping students -- of all ages and backgrounds -- find the joy and humor behind learning, the students who really instilled this sentiment in me were my pre-K, IEP, and Montessori kids. I worked closely with several pre-K children to help them prepare for kindergarten and begin their formal education with an advantage and a positive attitude about learning. I began by conducting a learning assessment and comparing the child's level with California's kindergarten standards. Several of my students had IEPs and I was able to work closely with their parents to design tutoring sessions that fit their needs and worked towards achieving their goals. Both my pre-K and IEP students reached significant milestones before I left for Princeton -- one is now a straight-A high school student who was several years behind his grade's reading level when I met him. Our sessions focused on building patience with reading out loud, talking about what we took away from a chapter, and applying these skills to other academic subjects. My Montessori students attended their middle school during the day and worked with me in the evenings several days per week to get ahead in math and receive more individualized attention. Between these three specific categories of students, I also worked with supporting more

While at Princeton, I led the R/Intro to Statistics tutoring team, worked as a Teaching Assistant (TA) for Introduction to Statistics and Machine Learning which was taught in R, and minored in Statistics & Machine Learning. My research for my thesis was performed entirely in R and I really consider programming in RStudio among the most valuable I learned at Princeton.

Excellent — makes great use of our time.

We were able to cover a lot of material in a short time. She’s extremely knowledgeable and also a great teacher. She lets me keep hands on keyboard as I’m learning R which makes me have to think through the code… Not just watching her code.

Tabitha is worth working with.

Tabitha is very knowledgeable in helping me learn R programming. I came to her with no self confidence in learning this but she assured me that I can do it. She is extremely caring, supportive and helpful in all aspects of your educational needs. Most importantly she is very patient with me. I found the right person to help me finally!

Great tutor!

Tabitha B. helped me with my R. Studio homework. She provided me with a lot of useful information that made it seem a lot less intimidating. I definitely felt comfortable working with her immediately, and she did not make me feel bad for being technologically challenged! Highly recommend.

Fun and Patient Tutor

I was struggling through my graduate level statistics course for weeks and needed someone to walk me through the program R. Tabitha was able to get me on the right track to understanding the program as well as the theory behind it under an hour. She is very easy going, likes answering questions, and genuinely expresses enjoyment throughout the entire tutoring session. It takes a special skill to explain difficult concepts in a variety of ways and you can tell that Tabitha is able to adjust her methods depending on the student's learning style. I am already looking forward to our next tutoring session.

Very knowledgeable tutor!

She did a great job of explaining how to write and run functions in R. I thought it was a pretty hard concept to grasp, but she made it so much easier to understand. Will definitely come back to her if I need help with other concepts!!

Knowledgeable and Easy to work with

Tabitha was able to teach me different approaches to troubleshooting why the code is not working. She was aware of R's many functions and clearly explained the difference between Base R and Packages. I was really nervous going in, but Tabitha understood how little knowledge I had, but we were able to finish an assignment I was struggling with. She did not just tell me the answers; she helped me find the answers. I would recommend her to anyone who has very little knowledge of R.

Extremely patient and Awesome

I'm 3 weeks into learning R in an online format, making a difficult subject even more difficult. Explained shortcuts, concepts and work pathways thoroughly. Tabitha is my favorite tutor so far, will be back!
