I have also explained statistical concepts in legal cases to judges and attorneys.

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.

SPSS

I have taught SPSS to college students and professors and am familiar with setting up data to analyze, for example, interaction terms.

I currently am a statistical consultant at Rutgers University, and have published over 20 peer reviewed articles in medical and nutrition journals, on papers that required significant statistical analysis.

Caring tutor!

Yvette was an awesome and knowledgeable tutor. She treated my project as hers. She DOES REALLY care about her clients. She went above and beyond what I was expecting. Thanks, Yvette!

Abb, 1 lesson with Yvette

Kind, patient, and relieves stats anxiety!

Yvette is an excellent tutor for students that don't feel entirely comfortable with advanced statistical methods. She's patient and able to explain concepts in multiple ways for students to understand. She truly cares about helping her students succeed!

Holly, 1 lesson with Yvette

Knowlegeable and Patient

Yvette was more than helpful with guiding me through topics, to prepare for my midterm exam. Her philosophy is to help you, in any that she can and not only during the scheduled tutoring sessions. Even after our session, Yvette provided a number of online resources that she found beneficial to really help me grasp the material in my course (graduate level statistics). She is very passionate about seeing her students succeed.
