Doctoral Student in Anthropology offeres Health, Medical, Statistics and Social Science Lessons

Methodology

I am a doctoral student in anthropology having worked mostly with College students, I was an adjunct instructor in anthropology, sociology, and cultural health studies. I teach lessons catered to an individual and their needs. In some cases this means content, in others it means study skills, time management, and steps to assignment completion. As a teacher, I am very patient, and will review the material with you until you have it right, and in preparation for exams, we will make sure you understand not just what is written in the book, but the concepts as well.

Background

I have been tutoring on and off for about 8 years. I work mostly with college students, and have taught over a 200+ students, individually tutoring over 50+. My students, many who struggle with memorization, applying mathematical concepts, or need assistance with writing and editing, have gain skills they are able to use in other courses. My students have gone on to finish their college degrees or enter Masters/Doctoral and other programs.
