##### About Olga

I have taught undergraduate and graduate statistics and math for over 25 years. I am now retired and love teaching so I'd like to help students who struggle with math and math concepts. I make math and statistics easy! I try to translate these subjects, which I consider a "language" into plain English. I also like to relate seemingly abstract concepts to simply, realistic concepts.

I have taught online, in lecture format, and in interactive learning formats using the computer as an aid when necessary. I like to teach by interactively engaging the student and having the student demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of a concept before moving on to the next level. I will help with homework and test preparation but will not "do the homework" for them.

I have a friendly, outgoing personality and an enthusiastic attitude which people find appealing. I have a lot of energy and flexibility and am willing to travel a reasonable distance to meet with the student.

I try to make math "fun" and practical so the student can relate to the reason they are learning a particular tool or concept. When possible I turn learning into a game and engage the student interactively. I like to let the student identify their particular problem by being a good listener.

My first love was biology. It was when I discovered the applications of statistics and math in real world biological situations, particularly medical statistics that I fell in love with my specialty, biometry.

I want to help you love to learn and to realize your true potential in conquering problems that may seem insurmountable by breaking them down into easy steps. This is a concept that extends beyond and into real life. My philosophy is if a problem is too hard it's probably because it hasn't been well formulated so lets break it down to its simplest elements and tackle these one step at a time.
