About Marla

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

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

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.

Biostatistics

I worked as a biostatistician in the pharmaceutical division of a company for over 13 years. As such, 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.
Additionally, I provided statistical input for the protocols of clinical trials (Phases I-III) , including the determination of an appropriate study design and sample size, analyzed data from these clinical trials and produced the statistical portions of the clinical study report.

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'.

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.

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).

Terrific Tutor!

Marla taught me in 1 hour what I have been struggling to understand for the past 3 weeks in my graduate statistics course. She was able to provide real life experiences to the material we covered in a way that helped me learn. She was very patient, never made me feel embarrassed for asking a question, and was able to identify my learning style very quickly. Instead of simply reviewing the content
