I am a biostatistician who has been teaching statistics for over 10 years to college students, medical students, doctors and other researchers. I have also explained statistical concepts in legal cases to judges and attorneys. I have worked on biopsychosocial research studies at Cornell Medical School and currently work on nutritional studies at Rutgers University, where I identify new methods to analyze data collected in clinical trials. I have helped students complete their Master's and PhD theses, including interpreting the results of their SPSS or SAS printouts. I even help them format their deposit copy in Word! My PhD was an organizational analysis of labor market surveys and census data, so I have experience inbusiness statistics taught in MBA programs, as well. I am familiar with SPSS, SAS, R and high school level math required on the SAT and ACT. As a stress researcher for many years, I can help you learn techniques to minimize test anxiety by spaced preparation before exams.
What I love about tutoring is helping students grasp difficult concepts and feel empowered when they understand how to perform complex analyses that were too challenging for them, at first. I want the tutoring experience to be as pleasant as possible, so I welcome feedback and suggestions from students and parents on resources to use and ways to improve your tutoring experience with me. Learning is an interactive process, and I believe you will be more motivated to succeed if your have positive learning experiences!

Please contact me if you have questions and we can schedule a time to discuss at your convenience.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

She has provided good insight around reading comprehension strategies to improve SAT score. My daughter is able to apply those techniques to improve her score for future SAT.

Narinder, 1 lesson with Yvette

Excellent, pleasant, knowledgeable

She is very patient and makes sure you understand. She is very knowledgeable, nice, and pleasant to work with, especially for SPSS. I would highly recommend her for a tutor.

Janell, 5 lessons with Yvette

Understand Clinical Studies

Yvette is very knowledgeable in statistics, because she applies it in her daily work. I’ve appreciated her commitment to helping me understand statistical concepts, and she has even sent me follow up emails after our sessions to help me gain further understanding. She is good at interpreting clinical studies, and I would recommend her as a biostatistics tutor based on her knowledge, patience, and reasonable price.

Chris, 6 lessons with Yvette

Wow! I wish I had found Yvette sooner.

I tried multiple other tutors. Nobody could even compare to Yvette. She was so patient and understanding when you did not quite grasp something. She also proves you with extra material in case you would like more knowledge about the subject. Yvette is also so incredibly knowledgeable in so many realms. I could not have asked for a better session.

Katherine, 2 lessons with Yvette

Beautifully knowledgeable!

Yvette is responsive, sensitive about clients' need with time conscious. She picked an error three other tutors did not. She has never disappointed me meeting my need in study context and time frame. Most of all, she cares about what clients need. Not simply tutoring. I thank her each time she provided excellent advice.

Joanne, 3 lessons with Yvette
