Hello! My name is Carter A. and I am a recent graduate from the South Carolina Honors College at the University of South Carolina, where I majored in Statistics. I am currently working towards a PhD in Biostatistics from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC. I have been a tutor for roughly 4 years, and have tutored all levels, from elementary to college. My specialties are in math and statistics, but I have also tutored basic sciences and computer programming. I can al... [more]
I took an upper level discrete mathematics course at the University of South Carolina (MATH 574) and received an A. I have also encountered discrete mathematics concepts in several statistics courses such as probability. Discrete mathematics is also a component of the GRE Quantitative section, which I scored 167 out 170 on.
I completed a statistical computing class at my university where we covered SAS. I received an A in that course and have been using SAS moderately in other courses and in research contexts.
I am a PhD student in biostatistics at the Medical University of South Carolina and I have a BS in statistics from the University of South Carolina. I have been doing research in statistics for several years now, and am proficient in R and SAS. I have a solid mathematical background and understanding of statistical principles.
I have been programming computers for approximately four years now, and program almost daily. I am comfortable with Java, UNIX, SAS, and R, and have taken formal coursework in all of these areas. I also use programming languages, primarily R, in my academic research.
I have a B.S. in statistics, 3 years of statistics research experience, and have a foundational understanding of economic principles.
I took honors proof-based linear algebra in college and have used matrix algebra in many classes since. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Biostatistics, much of which is mathematically founded upon linear algebra.
I use the Ubuntu operating system as well as Terminal on Mac OS X to manage my files. I also have taken a formal university class on UNIX/LINUX computing, where I learned the fundamentals of LINUX.
I have used Mac computers for a decade now and am quite familiar with both the operating system and hardware of Macs. I frequently use the Terminal to gain more control over my Mac's file structure, giving me a deeper understanding of Mac OS X.
I currently use bash on Mac OS X, a version of UNIX/LINUX. I have also taken a UNIX class at my university. I use UNIX commands daily.
I have become proficient in R through a combination of research and coursework. My undergraduate senior thesis, a predictive model for water quality in Charleston, SC, was conducted and written entirely in R. I have also taken formal coursework in R at the University of South Carolina.
