I'm a highly successful statistician with outstanding experience advising business professionals at Proctor & Gamble on how to apply statistical methods to solve real world problems, as well as a confident coach who remains calm and controlled under pressure while focusing on common understanding. Additionally, I seek to build and maintain strong relationships through a warm and friendly demeanor and a genuine willingness to help.

I have a Master's Degree in Applied Statistics and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics. I'm also a member of the American Statistical Association. Math and statistics are powerful tools and I have a passion for helping others to see and understand how fun it can be to use them.

I have experience and proficiency with both seasoned and novice scientific professionals. I provide multiple examples to enhance understanding and comprehension, and adapt my teaching style and approach to connect well with both students and professionals. I do this via simple and effective communication utilizing real world examples to illustrate concepts and provide motivation to learn.

Statistics

Statistics

I graduated from Ohio State in four quarters with a 3.91 GPA. I worked in pharmaceutical and consumer products industries, where I often needed to be able to 'teach' statistical concepts to my co-workers.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

An introduction to numbers and the number system, including how to work with them (e.g. add, subtract, multiply, divide). Basic concepts (e.g. factions, percents), and definition of basic symbols (< > =). Additionally, how it translates back to 'English'.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Learn how understanding the fundamentals of algebra will help you figure out practical problems in everyday life via setting up and solving equations and inequalities. Did you get the right change back at the video store? Did you get your fair share of pizza given the amount of money you contributed? Is that mail offer really a good deal? How long will it take me to earn the money to buy my favorite music CD? Additionally, learn how to graph equations & how to interpret those graphs.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

In Algebra II we learn all sorts of ways to solve for... 'X', and X can be anything. The key is to learn how to translate English into mathematical equations that can be solved. In this course you learn many ways to solve for X, and how useful that skill is the real life. With degrees in Math and Applied Statistics, along with 20 years experience at P&G, I have had plenty of experience solving problems using Math and/or statistics.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Builds on your knowledge of solving equations, gives you the tools to solve more complex equations, and learning how to set up equations from words (the dreaded story problem).

Biostatistics,

Biostatistics

I worked as a biostatistician in the pharmaceutical division of a company for over 13 years. I provided statistical input to the research scientists including determination of an appropriate study design and sample size, analysis of data to determine dose response information, ED50's, IC50's, and all other information needed to submit an IND to the FDA. I have a Master's Degree in Applied Statistics and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra gives you the tools to solve systems of linear equations. These tools require the knowledge of matrices and their arithmetic properties. Determinants, vector spaces, and linear transformations are also introduced, along with applications in problems of approximation. I took a semester class in Linear Algebra in college and received an A. I've continue to use the methods in many of my graduate statistics courses, receiving As in those classes as well.

Yvonne, 9 lessons with Marla

Great Tutor

Marla, was on time and well prepared. Prior to the lesson, she asked me what i exactly wanted help with and she came well prepared for the session. We went through multiple regression model questions and standard distribution. She was very patient and showed me an easier way of working with multiple regression models. Thank you Marla!!

Doreen, 1 lesson with Marla

She caught on to what I needed quickly

I am an adult in school for my B.S.N. Marla has been tutoring me for my statistic online class and has been good at helping to identify what I am missing from the assignments and how to look at problems differently. She was able to follow the assignments very quickly and we spent the time very efficiently in addressing my questions.
