I have a Ph.D. in Public Health from Johns Hopkins University. My passion is to mentor students to develop the skills to understand quantitative methods (statistics, biostatistics, research methods, SPSS) in the health sciences. My technique is to focus on teaching skills that will not only get the immediate task done but to develop skills for long-term success. I also work with students improving their writing skills for graduate school or researching topics for course projects. While I prefer long-term assignments scheduled ahead of time, I may be available for urgent one-time needs.

I am a native Spanish speaker and have a son in middle school.

Subjects

SAS,

SAS

I learned SAS in a graduate course and worked as a Graduate Research Assistant programming in SAS for 8 years. I programmed my own dissertation analysis in SAS. I was a PhD researcher in a Data Coordinating Center for 5 years training entry level staff in SAS and reviewing accuracy of code for reports and publications. I can tutor in writing basic code on how to access and read data, import data from Excel, data management and variable creation, and statistical analysis using descriptive, multivariate, and nonparametric procedures.
SPSS

SPSS

I have over 20 years experience using SPSS and SAS for data analyses. I can tutor students needing to use SPSS for statistics courses at masters or Ph.D. level, or assist graduate students and professionals with questionnaire construction, data entry, and analysis as part of thesis research, dissertation proposals and poposals to be submitted for grant funding.

Epidemiology

Epidemiology

I earned a PhD in Public Health from Johns Hopkins University. I completed a Post-doctoral fellowship in cancer epidemiology at the National Institutes of Health. I have taught Introduction to Public Health and Epidemiology for undergraduates, master and PhD students, and Social Epidemiology for master and doctoral students. This is material that is difficult for most non-science majors as each new term is not just a definition but a concept. I use applications to every day health issues to reinforce concepts (epidemic of Zika virus). I also find websites that have graphics to visualize disease and related body organs (breast cancer).

Always very professional

Was the best tutor I have encountered on WyzAnt. She was helpful and available to me when I needed her. She is skilled in research and in public health. She was able to explain SPSS and stats so that I could understand it.
