About Lani

My training includes Master's and Doctoral degrees in Exercise Physiology and Educational Research. I am an experienced professor in undergraduate and graduate level statistics, as well as being well versed in statistical programming. I have been a student much of my life so I understand the many frustrations that go along with it.

My approach to tutoring is to keep learning simple by breaking down concepts into easy to understand components. I want to alleviate any anxiety a student may have about tests or homework by teaching how to identify what is being asked and how to gather the necessary information to answer any question that is presented.

Being an experienced professor, as well as an experienced student, for many years, I have a good understanding of what is expected and how to meet any demands.

I hope you take advantage of my skills and experience to help you in understanding statistics, anatomy, physiology, etc. to achieve those good grades.

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.

Biostatistics

While working as a research assistant at University of Miami, one of my main functions was to program all statistical analyses for the laboratory using SAS programs. In addition to work for the lab, much statistics were performed in conjunction with various physician's, i.e. Diabetes Research Institute at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Statistical design and programming was also done for doctoral candidates dissertation. As my area of study was exercise physiology, all statistics were based on physiological functions as well as risk factor assessment and anthropometric measurements. I have also contributed to scientific journal articles, i.e. Journal of Applied Physiology as well as presenting at American College of Sports Medicine annual meeting.

Bodybuilding

I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association as well as teaching Health and Fitness, Weight Training, Aerobic Wellness, Total Wellness, Wellness Workout courses at major south Florida colleges for years. I have also developed online Weight Training classes.

Yoga

I have completed my 200 hour yoga certification with Yoga Alliance. In addition to my diligent practice, I also have a strong background as my doctorate is in Exercise Physiology and Educational Research. I have taught various anatomy/physiology, medical terminology, wellness/health promotion courses along with personal training experience. I would be an asset in this area.
