About Lauren

On-line tutoring only. Requests for a session must be made at least 24 hours in advance of proposed time.

I attended Johns Hopkins as a Molecular and Cellular Biology major. I finished school half a year early and spent the next year and a half working at Johns Hopkins as a yeast lab technician. Though I loved biology, my heart was always set on the medical field. Being a medical doctor was once a goal, but my first class of Introduction to Epidemiology really shifted my focus to public health. I went on to earn my doctorate in epidemiology from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Since earning my degree, I returned to Johns Hopkins to work as a data analyst. Then, I entered into my current position as Researcher at HealthCore. Over the years I've worked on a number of health studies and have published manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals.

I am Base SAS 9 certified through SAS. I've been a SAS user for nine years and had a paper published at the SAS Global Forum. When I was in college, I worked as a computer consultant, so I'm familiar with breaking down programming concepts.

If you still want me as a tutor, feel free to contact me to schedule lessons. Due to my current position, I will only be available to tutor on weekends or late evenings.

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.

Biology

In high school, I achieved a 6 in the IB Biology diploma exam. As an undergraduate, I majored in cellular and molecular biology at The Johns Hopkins University where I earned a BS. I have wet lab experience through college courses and a position as a laboratory technician.

Even today, I use biology. In the public health field, it is integral to understand underlying pathology and biology even assessing exposure and health outcome associations.

Biostatistics

When starting a study or analyzing a study, biostatistics is required. I've been a part of over a dozen studies where biostatistics have played some part. I've been a teaching assistant for a course that integrated biostatistics in its curriculum. I've taken undergraduate and graduate level statistics courses. As an undergrad, I took a probability and statistics course. In graduate school, I've taken: Introduction to Biostatistics, Sampling Techniques, Applied Linear Regression, Design of Clinical Trials, Measurement and Evaluation of Research Instruments, and Multivariate Models for Epidemiology.

Epidemiology

I earned my doctorate in epidemiology from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. I have studied a wide range of exposures, diseases, and populations. I have published 9 peer-reviewed public health manuscripts as first author or co-author.

Genetics

I took a college course in genetics and genetics lab. Also, I took a course in Evolution, which has a strong genetics component. Additionally I worked and researched in yeast labs where genetics is central to the science.

Microsoft Excel

I was a casual Excel user until 2007 when I began my epidemiology graduate education. Since then, I've become an advanced Excel user. I use Microsoft Excel on a daily basis to view, manage, and analyze data.

I am familiar with functions, PivotTables, forms, filters, and VBA subs/functions. Among my Excel achievements, I have programmed Excel files to manage pharmacy inventory of study drugs and to record daily work hour logs.

Needlework

I began knitting six years ago. I've completed a number of projects including scarves, baby blankets, baby sweater, and even a full-size afghan. This kind of tutoring would likely need hands-on tutoring since it is a tactile hobby.

SAS

I have a graduate school education in SAS and Advanced SAS. I've been a regular user of SAS (daily) since 2007. I am a Certified Base SAS 9 programmer.

Statistics

When doing epidemiological analyses, statistics are an integral part of determining whether an association has enough data to accept or reject the null hypothesis. As a data analyst and senior researcher, I use statistics every day. Whether you need help understanding the normal distribution or you'd like to learn how to perform multiple regression, my services could be of use.

Lauren is an exceptional tutor. She has the in depth skills to instruct students at the SAS beginners to advance levels. Her demeanor can adapt to any personality and quickly assess the situation to map a training program that fits the student. I truly benefited from her training and will continue to use only Lauren as a tutor for my training and projects.
