Hey Friends and Fellow Learners, My background is very varied but that's what makes it even more fun. Originally, I practiced as a physician in my home country and decided I wanted to contribute to the Science of Medicine through research, so I decided to pursue graduate training in Epidemiology and Biostatistics and then Molecular Microbiology and Immunology both at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Hey Friends and Fellow Learners,

My background is very varied but that's what makes it even more fun. Originally, I practiced as a physician in my home country and decided I wanted to contribute to the Science of Medicine through research, so I decided to pursue graduate training in Epidemiology and Biostatistics and then Molecular Microbiology and Immunology both at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Currently, I am a PhD student in my 3rd year at Johns Hopkins. My focus? Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases.

The first (Master's degree) provided me with a powerful toolkit with which to ask the right research questions and design the appropriate research studies to answer those questions. Through the second (Master's degree) I acquired a deeper understanding of how to develop potent interventions against infectious diseases. While getting all this training, I discovered I had a passion for working with data. I get really thrilled when I am able to make meaningful deductions (oftentimes with the potential to save many lives), from massive data sets that would appear meaningless to most people. Scientific research is more fun to me than it is work. To be paid to do what I enjoy is a great blessing! I would love to be able to help other people learn the scientific method using a very unintimidating approach.

I have enjoyed tutoring since high school when classmates gathered around my desk while I explained Math problems to them. In Medical School, I helped organize and tutored at tutorials. During the last 5 years, I have tutored Epidemiology, Quantitative Methods, Biostatistics, Data Analysis, Evidence-based Practice, Public Health, Microbiology, Stata and SPSS on a one-on-one basis.
My approach to tutoring is to break down complex or difficult concepts to simpler ideas that can be understood from first principles. I believe when a concept is understood from first principles, it makes more sense and is harder to forget. I also try to establish associations by linking several ideas that are inter-related. This approach also helps understanding, memory and recall.

Come and let's have a great time learning together! Come and share some of the fun that's to be found in Science!

Extremely knowledgeable and patient tutor!!

Victor was an incredible tutor! I came into the lesson feeling overwhelmed and he was so patient with me. He was able to break down my assignment rubric into terms that really helped me grasp the intimidating lesson. I came into the session feeling clueless but I left feeling like an expert !!
