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.

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.
I have both an MS and PhD in Biometry and Statistics and have taught college graduate and undergraduate medical and nursing students in statistical methods for medical application. I also worked two years as a biometrician conducting clinical trial research for MD Anderson Hospital and the U. of Texas health science Center.
I taught four semesters of Finite Math (MA103) for the math department at Northern Michigan University during the years 2011-2015. The contents included graphing quadratic and polynomial equations, constrained optimation, financial formulas for appreciation and depreciation annuities, amortiation charts, loans, credit card management, etc. Also probability and statistics and linear programming.
