I'm well versed in the subject of statistics
whether its probabilities, descriptives, graphing tools, hypothesis testing, parametric & non-parametric tests, correlations (binary/multivariate), regressions (linear, multivariate, and logistic), ANOVA/ANCOVA/MANOVA, exploratory/confirmatory factor analysis, latent growth curve modeling, cluster analysis, discriminant analysis, survival analysis, conjoint analysis, time-series analysis, forecasting, cluster analysis and structural equation modeling (AMOS).
And I have applied survey designs, data management, statistical modeling and data analysis during a one-year research project as the project leader at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine CA. The results of which, were presented to city councils, park managers, board members of the park, and also, the findings were included in the grant writing
projects of the city park. Currently, I'm consulting for several non-profit organizations by creating research platforms to study complex trauma among victims to determine effective intervention programs, tech-start ups for trends/projections/cluster analysis, and a vineyard operation in Santa Barbara to examine efficiencies in organizational development.
I have more than 7 years of experience using IBM's SPSS
statistical program (from version 16 to current version 21) including extensions in SPSS AMOS and SPSS Modeler.
Additionally, I also have an extensive experience in spatial analytics using Geographical Information Systems (ArcGIS) version 10 & 10.1 including ArcMap, ArcScene, ArcGlobe, ArcCatalog and software extensions in Tracking Analyst, Spatial Analyst, Geostatistical Analyst, 3D Analyst, and Model Builder.
My graduate training introduced me to the fundamentals of "Scientific Research Methodologies", principles of Ecology
(Evolutionary & Behavioral Ecology, Population ecology, Community ecology, Ecosystems ecology and Applied ecology), scientific literature
review and survey design/modeling analysis.
Finally, my style of tutoring includes a mutual interaction, cooperation, and integrative approach between the student and the tutor. My function as a tutor is to offer students guidance throughout the tutorial process where not only the student will learn from me but I believe, I will also learn something new from them, and that's why I look forward to every students that I tutored in the past and in the present because of its dynamic synergy.
