About Rene


Bio

Hi, I'm Rene! I graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a doctorate in Public Health, specializing in Epidemiology. I'm originally from Texas, and I'm fully bilingual in English and Spanish. I've worked with local, state and federal health agencies on infectious disease outbreaks and in updating their guidances for outbreak response. I've traveled to Puerto Rico and Colombia to chase infectious diseases like Zika and Chikungunya. Before becoming an epidemiologist, I was a clinical...

Hi, I'm Rene! I graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a doctorate in Public Health, specializing in Epidemiology. I'm originally from Texas, and I'm fully bilingual in English and Spanish. I've worked with local, state and federal health agencies on infectious disease outbreaks and in updating their guidances for outbreak response. I've traveled to Puerto Rico and Colombia to chase infectious diseases like Zika and Chikungunya. Before becoming an epidemiologist, I was a clinical laboratory scientist working at a rural hospital. I worked on my own overnights collecting specimens (usually blood) and performing laboratory tests.
One of the things that I always have enjoyed is to pass on the knowledge that I've gained in the classroom and in my life. My experiences as a teaching assistant in Epidemiology and Health Communications at the graduate level made me a big believer that we all have different ways of learning things. What works for one person may not work for the next, so I try to present ideas in different ways and with different methods and technologies.

I have a bachelor's degree in medical technology. With that degree, I worked in a clinical lab performing all sorts of laboratory tests on different human samples in order to help diagnose diseases and conditions. This requires a strong knowledge of biology, microbiology, clinical chemistry, immunology, and other scientific disciplines. I also have a master's degree in Public Health, with a concentration in epidemiology and biostatistics. With that degree, I worked at a state health department and consulted with local and federal agencies on outbreak responses. That required mastery of microbiology, epidemiology and biostatistics. Finally, I recently completed my Doctor of Public Health degree. My doctoral dissertation was on the use of epidemiology and geostatistics in order to understand the epidemic of homicides in Baltimore, Maryland.

Spanish is my first language. I learned English when I was a child but spoke Spanish at home. I still maintain my Spanish skills by writing and speaking it as much as possible.

If you need someone who will be patient with you, will take their time in making sure that you've learned the lesson, and will follow-up with you for any questions you may have, I'm your tutor. When you contact me, I will get back to you within one business day. Should you decide to hire me, please know that I require at least 24 hours cancellation/reschedule notice.

Statistics

I use statistics for analysis of data to understand the diseases and conditions that affect human populations. From my doctoral dissertation to everyday work with large datasets, statistics are integral to making sure that the associations I observe are statistically significant. My experience with statistics began in college, but they have matured since in my graduate and doctoral work. For my dissertation, I combined statistics with my knowledge of geographic information systems to understand how location influenced the dependent variable of my study.

I performed biostatistical analyses for my graduate work toward my MPH. I then used biostatistics for my work at a state health department. For my doctoral dissertation, I used a negative binomial regression on counts of homicides by neighborhoods in Baltimore in order to identify the community-level indicators associated with increased homicide rates.

I hold a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree and worked as an infectious disease epidemiologist at a state health department for seven years. After working at the health department, I completed a Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) program. During my doctoral education, I had the opportunity to work for local and federal health agencies in the response to Ebola and Zika, and I traveled to South America to evaluate disease surveillance systems and aid in the study of an outbreak of Chikungunya.

Not patient tutor

I logged in late due to technical issues. I was disappointed because I did not ask for cancelation and he left already. When I logged in, Rene was not there. He asked me to pay the cancelation fee! I think this is not the right thing to do because he is the one who canceled the session!

Tutor responded:

The lesson was supposed to begin at 9pm. By 9:20pm, the student had not logged in, nor did they take the time to communicate that they were having technical issues. At 9:21, I emailed the student to notify them that I was ending the lesson and logging off for the night. At 9:32, the student emailed me that they were having technical issues. At 9:42, the student emailed me again that the issues were resolved and demanded a lesson start at that time, nonetheless.

Very knowledgeable on the subject matter

I appreciate his ability to cover a broad overview of the material while attending to my specific areas of concern. Understands the challenges I am going through!

Rebecca, 1 lesson with Rene

Knowledgeable and motivating tutor

We reviewed some necessary measures of association in epidemiologic studies. Specifically, we focused on particular study designs (e.g., case-control, nested case-control, and cohort studies) and the application of odds ratios and risk ratios or relative risk in analysis and interpretation.

Joshua, 1 lesson with Rene

Epidemiology

I now have a better understanding of the differences between attack rates and incidence rates. He gave some pretty good pointer on telling the difference between rates and the differences between the different epi curves.

Nekole, 1 lesson with Rene

Extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with!

I have not had a math class in close to 20 years and René was able to guide me through a lesson with ease. With further lessons I feel I will do fine in my Biostatistics graduate course.

Lisa , 4 lessons with Rene

Excellent tutor for the health and science field!

Rene is teaching me on research methods regarding public health. He is an excellent tutor, very smart and has has a wide variety of experience and knowledge in health and science related topics. He was very patient and found diverse ways to explain things to me. I highly recommend Rene and he is very easy to work with! I look forward to using him again and he really makes the content exciting to learn about.

Ben, 8 lessons with Rene

Excellent tutor with patience, flexibility and a great sense of humor

Rene was very patient whenever any tech issues occurred and always found a way to make sure I understand the content. As someone who has never been exposed to Epidemiology course work before grad school, Rene did an excellent job ensuring that I understood the concepts. I plan to continue to work with Rene next semester.

knowledgeable and patient

really assisted in making sure that i understood the concepts behind the case study - was very patient as my math ability is limited, took time to assist in teaching me how to plot an epi curve and really understand the attack rate - (and all formulas needed throughout study)

Samantha, 17 lessons with Rene

Excellent Tutor

He understood the difficulty everyone has with th subject and was able to explain the formulas used in a way that made sense to me. I will continue to use him during this course.
