Patient, Knowledgeable, LOVE Teaching! Math, Science, English, Italian

Finding the right tutor for your student who is struggling in school can be an enormous challenge. A tutor isn't just a teacher who presents information all over again after school. A tutor must understand the way a student thinks and present the material in a way that makes learning it easy and straightforward. I think my very best skills are in chemistry and math, so while I'm happy to help anyone in any subject I am qualified to teach, I would especially love to help students with math an... [more]


Algebra 1

I have tutored Algebra 1 to students from middle school through high school and I have taught mathematics to students in elementary school through college. I excel at teaching people to effectively think through math problems of any type.


Algebra 2

I have been tutoring students of all abilities, from elementary school-aged through college level, since I myself was in high school. I truly have an immense amount of patience and I explain things in as many ways as it takes until my student understands.


Biology


Chemistry

I aced Honors and AP Chemistry in high school and took two years of chemistry in college. I currently tutor students in chemistry so my knowledge is current and fresh. I'm experienced at breaking down this seemingly unreachable subject into a manageable (and maybe even fun) subject!


Vocabulary


Grammar


Microsoft Excel


General Computer


Geometry


Microsoft Word


Physics


Microsoft PowerPoint


Prealgebra


Precalculus


Reading


Spanish

I aced Spanish all through school, including college, up through intermediate Spanish (high school equivalent: Spanish IV or V). I speak Italian fluently and speak Spanish with an authentic accent (without an American or an Italian accent). I am very good with Spanish grammar and at helping to build vocabulary, listening, and comprehension skills.


Writing


Statistics

I am a PhD student in epidemiology (a subject with a statistics foundation) and am proficient in high school/college statistics up through Probability Theory.


English


Psychology

I scored a perfect 5 on the AP Psychology test in 2003 and I majored in psychology in college. I also excel at statistics, which is fundamental to the science of psychology.


Italian

I have been speaking fluent Italian for over 10 years. I am fluent in proper Italian and I am a very perceptive and patient teacher. I learned in school and through self-study, so my Italian grammar is actually better than many native Italians' grammar.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been helping prepare students for 3th grade and 5th grade ITBS (Iowa) tests for 2 years. I have tutored elementary school math, science, reading, writing, and grammar for over 7 years.


SAS

I was a teaching assistant for a Data Management Using SAS class (taught by Dr. Mike S. at Emory University) for 3 years. Every class I have taken in my MPH and PhD graduate programs uses SAS as the main programming language, so I have a lot of experience from classwork and homework doing SAS modeling. SAS is the main programming language used at Emory University Rollins School of Public Health (where my graduate programs are based) and it is also the programming software I used exclusively while working as an ORISE Fellow at CDC for two years. I have very good working knowledge of SAS and am competent to teach a novice SAS user.


Ballet

I danced ballet for 15 years. I danced in my high school dance group and with a qualified instructor (Terrell Paulk) twice per week (technique and pointe). I taught ballet to elementary school-aged children every summer for 3 years and during one school year to kindergarten girls. I am well-versed in ballet technique (Cecchetti method), as the Cecchetti manual was like my bible in high school.


Biostatistics

My master's degree from Emory University is in epidemiology, which required two biostatistics courses in 2007 and 2008. I did extra graduate work that included an advanced biostatistics course in 2011. While I was in graduate school, I helped my peers in less math-based fields of public health with biostatistics homework. My field requires that I draw upon my biostatistics knowledge almost every day.


Genetics

I am a PhD student in genetic epidemiology. I have 3 years' experience working in a genetics subject-area job and 2 years' experience working in a genetics lab (DNA methylation). I am a fellow in the genomics track an Emory University program called Molecules 2 Mankind. Also, while most of my undergraduate-level genetics knowledge is self-taught of learned on the job, I earned an A in my graduate-level genetics (the class is called IBS 746, Graduate Human Genetics, and is taught by Judith Dr. Fridovich-Keil).
