I tutor students working on their capstone projects, theses, or doctoral dissertations. I am also a CITI-certified investigator (CITI: The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative).

I am a practicing public health professional working as a lead health scientist/clinical epidemiologist at one of the largest government agencies. I also serve as an adjunct health and nutrition professor at a private university and collaborate with another federal agency as a co-investigator.

I advise students to shape and polish their statements for graduate school, guiding them in career choices and future directions and preparing them for job interviews. My work style is customer-oriented and goal-oriented. Everybody, who worked with me from the start to the end, passed their course happily with their target, or higher, defended their capstones or dissertations, or graduated.

I tutor many Public Health subjects, including but not limited to Health Education, Public Health Policy, Public Health Law, Public Health Interventions, Program Evaluation, Community Health, and Research Ethics courses. My students study Research Methods in Public Health, Sociology, Psychology, Biomedical Sciences, and Nursing.

SAS

I have more than 20 years of analytical experience using SAS base or SAS callable SUDAAN as a health scientist. After teaching SAS for all these years, I have developed my own teaching SAS method for beginner users at Wyzant. I also have experience working with various databases (NHANES, NIS, NHIS, BRFSS, PRAMS, etc.) and analytical techniques (survival analysis, mixed models, etc.). I offer SAS analysis of complex survey data and other specialized SAS training on-demand as a part of my capstone packages.
SPSS

SPSS

I have more than 20 years of analytical experience using SPSS, Excel, SAS base, SAS callable SUDAAN, and R as a health scientist. During all these years, I have been teaching students how to perform statistical analysis using SPSS, including but not limiting: descriptive stat, basic t-tests, Pearson correlation, One-way, and two-way ANOVA, repeated measure ANOVA, Chi-Square Tests, and multiple linear regression. An advanced statistical analysis, including factor analysis/principal components analysis, cluster analysis, decision trees, logistic regression, survival analysis, generalized linear models, and mixed models, is also available. I put a particular emphasis on the selection of the most important results and presenting them in the APA format.

Amazing Tutor

Elena is a great tutor. She is kind, patient, and clearly knowledgeable in her field. She is responsive to messages and follow-up notes from the session. Elena has definitely helped me better understand research methods and how to apply them to assignments. Absolutely recommend!

Vanessa , 4 lessons with Elena

VERY helpful & dedicated

I recently left a review for Elena regarding the work we have been doing together. I honestly was not sure if i would pass the class considering i chose to take it during a shorter term . I ended up finishing my essay with 29 pages & an A (34/35 pts) . I could not have done so without Elena & i am eternally grateful for her dedication to my work & the time she put in to ensure i receive a good grade. Choosing the right tutor can be hard, but i wouldnt worry if choosing Elena because she will go above and beyond to help you in any way possible!
