About Carrie

Hi there! I work as an economist in the D.C. area, and I really enjoy helping people learn. I have a Ph.D. in economics, and about 10 years of college teaching and tutoring experience. My undergraduate degrees are in math and economics, so I am pretty well-versed in a variety of mathematical and econometric techniques. My favorite classes to tutor are microeconomics, game theory, and calculus. I tend to do really well with students who typically find math and economics to be daunting and off-putting, and I'm comfortable with high school or college students.

Unfortunately, my tutoring hours are very limited for 2015. I may be available to do a couple of hours of tutoring here and there, but longer-term commitments aren't feasible for me at this time. I typically meet with students at a library or coffee shop in the Ballston/Clarendon area on weeknights or Saturdays. Drop me a line if you have any questions or are interested in working with me. Thanks!

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.

Differential Equations

I have an undergraduate degree in mathematics as well as Ph.D. in economics. During my undergraduate degree, I took the entire calculus sequence as well as an elective class on partial differential equations. During my graduate work, I used differential equations often since economics mostly focuses on optimization equations.

Discrete Math

I received an undergraduate degree in mathematics. One of the classes I took was Discrete Math, and I also took classes covering proofs and other areas of discrete math such as topology, graph theory, and network analysis.

Econometrics

I have a Ph.D. in economics and have taken 3 semesters of graduate econometrics courses. I also have a thorough background in probability and statistics at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. I have tutored students in introductory econometrics, statistics, and probability courses.

STATA

I have taken 3 semesters of graduate econometrics in which STATA was the primary tool used. I also wrote an economics dissertation including 2 chapters of applied microeconomics in which all of the analysis was carried out using STATA.
