SAS,

SAS

I received my Master's of Statistics from North Carolina State University where SAS was developed. All graduate students were required to carry out statistical analyses using SAS for volumes of homework for most of the courses. Recently I assisted a Ph.D. student with data management and statistical analysis of survey data as part of her thesis work. I am able to develop programs with SAS, but have more experience with data management and analysis.

Elementary Education

MTLE

MTLE

I have an undergraduate degree in math and have taught college level math in Minnesota for 5 years. Some of the students that I have taught have been ones working on degrees in education. Successful completion of that course allowed these students to meet the math requirement for their degree. I have also tutored students preparing for the Minnesota Teaching Licensure Exam and am familiar with the geometry and algebra problems posed. I was able to assist students having difficulties with these questions.

Biostatistics

I have completed biostatistics courses at the University of Minnesota and the University of North Carolina. These courses included Statistical Computing (SAS and SPSS), Biometry I, and Demographic Methods. Courses at the University of NC included a calculus-based biostatistical course.
Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

As an undergraduate I took a number of courses in differential equations. I recently tutored a student in material on differential equations, both first order and second order. This would include linear differential equations, separable equations, and homogeneous and non-homogeneous linear differential equations.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

I taught two sections of finite math at the University of St. Thomas in the fall of 2011. The topics covered included linear functions, systems of linear equations, mathematics of finance, sets and counting and probability. These topics were also included in another course I taught at the University of Minnesota, PreCalculus I. I also recently tutored a gruadate student on topics of systems of linear equations, and mathematics of finance.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have completed two quarter-long upper division math courses in linear algebra with grades of A. I have tutored the topic and was a paid paper-grader for the course. In addition to the under-graduate course work, I have taken graduate course work in linear models, which is based largely on linear algebra.

Very knowledgable! Boosted my confidence!

I was faltering in my statistics class and met with Barbara. She was able to explain the material in a very simple way that made it easy for me to wrap my head around the concepts. She really boosted my confidence, and I found that I am now enjoying the class!

Chris, 1 lesson with Barbara

Committed to help with algebra

Barbara has worked twice with my daughter. My daughter is feeling more comfortable and confident. When they came across a problem that neither were sure of, Barbara took time after the lesson to figure it out and contacted my daughter. She appreciated Barbara's dedication. Thanks!

Easy to Learn From

She's very patient and understanding, making an unbearable subject easy. I had her as a tutor for finite math as well, so choosing her for Stats was a no-brainer

Laura, 9 lessons with Barbara

Patient and Knowledgeable Math Teacher

Barbara helped my daughter test out of Algebra 2 and Trig, in the 9th grade. She explained the new concepts and worked various examples. Recommend Barbara for High School Math.

Barb is very helpful at helping me better understand the concepts I am learning. This week we reviewed for my upcoming test. I need that help and review to help me excel in this class.

Very Good Statistic Instructor

Barbara is a very good statistic instructor. She thought me how do construct regression lines, how to use calculate ANAVA using SPSS, correlations, histograms, outliers, and how to do data analysis.

Martin, 1 lesson with Barbara

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Barbara came on short notice and worked with my daughter for nearly two hours to help her with some precalculus concepts that she was having trouble with. She did a great job and we really appreciated her.

Excellent tutor to help prepare for MTLE

I met with Barb twice to help me prepare for the math portion of the MTLE. I am someone who graduated from college 10+ years ago (so many concepts were long-forgotten),and I have quite a bit of anxiety surrounding math. Therefore, being a new MN resident and needing to pass the MTLE to continue my career was very nerve-wracking. Barb was extremely patient, supportive, and helpful during my sessions. She put me at ease, taught me new concepts, and provided me with additional problems to ensure understanding. I then passed the math portion of the MTLE with a score of 295, so I was incredibly pleased with the outcome!
