I am a statistician with several years professional experience in areas of clinical trials, health insurance research, and educational testing. I completed my Master of Science degree in biostatistics at the University of Pittsburgh. While in graduate school, I received merit-based appointments to serve as a teaching assistant for 3 separate courses offered by the biostatistics department - two were core introductory biostatistics courses, the other an advanced professional-level course in clinical trials research methodology. I was then awarded a pre-doctoral fellowship, which gave me exposure to several different areas of biostatistical research.

I taught general mathematics, algebra, and business statistics part-time at Robert Morris University for one academic year before relocating to Philadelphia in 2008. I count several years of experience using statistical software packages, particularly those regularly used in industry and academia for data management and analysis: SAS, SPSS, and Stata. Additionally, I have completed 4 courses at the SAS Institute in Philadelphia and a Terradata SQL course at LearnQuest. Finally, I also have a firm grasp of the Microsoft Office Suite.

I prefer a hands-on approach to teaching and tutoring, an approach developed and polished during office hours as a TA and adjunct mathematics faculty. I find one-to-one tutoring most effective and personally rewarding.

Logic

In addition to completing a master's degree in a mathematical science and a minor in mathematics as an undergraduate, which tests one's hold on one aspect of logical thinking, I satisfied the requirements for a minor in philosophy that included a course in formal logic. I have applied logic in writing research papers and proposals, and arguments as a student and professional. I have studied the writings of analytic philosophers and logicians such as Wittgenstein and Quine.

Fitness

I am a physically fit individual. I run 6-10 miles per week and, in addition, weight train or practice yoga 2-3 times a week. I can still fit into the clothes I wore in high school 20 years on. I swim, bike, and hike regularly. I won a Presidential Physical Fitness award back when the standards were still pretty tough (1984) and the only person to score higher than me in the entire school was a future NFL football player by the name of Mike Logan. I also have extensive knowledge of topic related to diet and nutrition.
