Part-Time Online R Tutor for Data Science

Veterans Needing Tutoring in Data Science – Posted by [email protected] Anywhere

Job Description

Hi All!

The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) and I are looking for a Virtual Data Science Tutor seasoned in R and ML and/or Visualizations in R, preferably with Illustrator experience.

This virtual gig starts ~Sep 23, is based on EST, flexible and pays $40-60/hr DOE with 3-9/hrs broken over each week.  We can move our schedules around Mon-Sat with no needs on Sunday.  We may have another veteran interested in scheduling your superpowers.  This would roughly double the available hours.

I’m the veteran who will be tutored.  To set expectations, I’m not a seasoned programmer and am only half-way through an MS in Applied Data Science.  I’m a mid-career Versatilist working through a wide range of interesting cross-functional challenges for Deloitte, the DOD and NFPs.  Excel VBA is the closest I’ve been to programming.

We would be meeting over a Zoom as I complete my work and ask questions when I’m stuck.  Sometimes that could mean a lot clarification and others where I can progress with limited questions.

How to Apply

To clarify, I'm the veteran tasked with screening my own tutor(s).  We'd have a brief online visit to share backgrounds, specific course needs and scheduling. If we think we're a good match and could work well together, we'll both submit the request to my VA rep.  I'll simply submit your name in my request and you would submit your experience and some basic forms directly to the VA.  If it's a good match and the VA can verify that the qualifications meet the needs, you'll probably receive an approval within 1-7 days. Being approved by the VA places you on a list of tutors the VA will work (i.e. veterans can pick from.).  This opens the door for more gigs. You can contact me directly at [email protected] or 803.479.0585 (mobile SMS).
