About Brianna

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Master of Public Policy from the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University. In grad school, I worked as a Teaching Assistant for both graduate and undergraduate students and discovered the rewarding experience of helping others learn to reach their highest potential. I love engaging with students, both those in and outside of formal schooling, promoting the advancement of knowledge. My favorite moments in teaching and tutoring are the "lightbulb moments", when you recognize that the student has grasped a concept and understands a problem.

My knowledge areas involve statistics and quantitative and qualitative research methods. I concentrated in research methods in grad school and have extensive experience as a research analyst utilizing these tools in real-world experiences, designing instruments and analyzing collected data.

My education in the social sciences allowed me to develop strong reading and writing skills. My job as a research analyst requires these skills and allows me to continually hone them. I am often tasked with writing reports to my superiors, our partners, and external stakeholders; I also share responsibility for proofreading and copy-editing reports. I often proofread papers for friends and family, including my husband and brother-in-law, both of whom are current college students.

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.

Economics

I have a Masters in Public Policy which focused heavily on fiscal policy and economics. Graduate courses that I took included Microeconomics, Cost-Benefit Analysis, and State and Local Public Finance. As a graduate student, I often led study groups for fellow classmates and later tutored students who subsequently took the courses.

Political Science

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Oregon State University and a Master in Public Policy from Rutgers University, where I concentrated in Social and Gender Policy, specifically focusing on women and politics. I have extensive knowledge of political science, particularly in US politics, though I also have a strong base of knowledge of international and comparative politics. In graduate school, I was also a Graduate Fellow at the Eagleton Institute of Politics, in which I interned at the New Jersey State Legislature and took courses on legislative politics focused on both the state and national levels in the US.

SPSS

I learned to use SPSS in both undergraduate and graduate statistics courses. In graduate school I was a teaching assistant for both undergrad and grad research methods courses where I taught other students how to utilize SPSS for their own research. I currently use SPSS at least weekly to conduct analyses in my job as a research analyst at an academic research center. I have extensive experience creating datasets in the program, manipulating variables, and running basic and advanced statistics.

Statistics

I have a Master in Public Policy that focused heavily on statistics and research methods. Graduate classes I took included Research Methods, Quantitative Statistics, and Survey Research and Design. I was also a teaching assistant for two research methods courses with both centered around research design and data analysis, one for undergrads and one for graduate students. I use statistics daily in my work as a Research Analyst at an academic research center to conduct statistical analyses on the data we collect in the course of our research projects.
