Arizona State University (economics)
University of Texas at Austin (PhD)
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.

Carrie is an easygoing, friendly tutor. My son is happy with her and he says she explains math in a way that helps him a lot.
We are grateful for her help.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
