Stats is my specialty, but I also know the ins and outs of algebra, linear algebra, and calculus. I can also instruct on the use of software related to stats, such as SPSS, SAS, Excel Megastat, and Minitab.

I noticed many students have trouble in this area, and its needed for so many majors: Psychology, Business, Biology, Applied Math, Sociology, Geography......etc. I know it's hard. My personal mission is to make you sharp and confident so you can get through it with as little emotional scarring as possible (and practically learn Greek in the process).

Probability subjects:
-Baye's Theorem and Rule
-Conditional probabilities
-Expectation, Variation, and Covariation
-Joint distributions
-All the known distributions
-Uniform, Binomial, Exponential
Gamma, Beta, Chi-Square, T,.... etc.
And calculation of their parameters and m(t) functions
-Order Statistics

Stochastic Processes:
-Transition matrices, long run distributions
-M/M/K Processes
-Random walks

Inference subjects:
-T tests, Z tests, confidence intervals
-ANOVA, Factorial ANOVA, Block designs and repeated measures designs
-Post hoc tests and contrasts
-Linear, Multiple, and Logistic Regression
-Model selection and residual analysis
-Chi-square tests
-Nonparametric tests

All can be done using aforementioned software. I stress the interpretation of stats when I teach, because I know the instructors do as well. Simply plugging formulas/programs isn't going to get that A on your stat project.

I like to approach problems from different angles with different examples. I go over the math as well as purpose and application. There comes a point when the student internalizes the concept and is then able to adapt the formulas to their problems. I aim to reach this point with every student.

I usually meet students in public or college libraries for the quiet atmosphere.

Education and Experience:

I have a Bachelor's Degree of Science in Statistics from California State University East Bay
I've worked as a tutor through my university and independently for over a year. I've built up a network of students who have referred me to their friends. In fact, I heard about this site from a student.

Very communicative and thorough with statistics material — Timothy made the scheduling and preparation process very easy. His email replies were prompt as was his arrival for the lesson. He had a very strong knowledge of the material and he covered most of the topics needed within the hour. His explanations were helpful to my daughter and she can apply them towards studying for her upcoming test. ...
