Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I have 3+ years experience teaching R programming and data processing and analysis at both undergrad and graduate levels. In particular I love helping students to learn and develop programming skills for data analysis from the very basics to advanced concepts. I have also provided online private tutoring to a number of students from different countries, including the US, China, Congo, Myanmar, Spain, Peru and Colombia. I enjoy engaging with students with distinct backgrounds.
