If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I am a current PhD student specializing in Biostatistics, Epidemiology and all medical related research. I have been using SAS for 5+ years and have consulting/tutoring experience for 5+ years. I am passionate to help you with all your statistical related research projects, and with reviewing/helping the statistical section, other parts as well, in your published articles, thesis, or dissertation. The rate is very flexible to discuss with if your project interests my passion.

It's a great treasure to know how statistics are taught differently at different places. I am very glad to help my students not only on their immediatel needs of homework or project problems, but also the deep understanding of statistical reasoning of interpretation. The ultimate goal is you can use statistics freely in your research and daily life.

I am very happy to help you with your statistics needs. I have tutored students from SMC, LMU, Pepperdine University, USC, University of California (Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Irvine, etc) and California State Universities on different levels of statistical courses. In my experience, distance is not a problem at all. For those students who are located outside of Los Angeles, with the help of Skype, Google hangout, phone conversation, etc, we have the sessions very well on solving their statistical needs and answering all their questions. Again, your session will be unique and will be customized based on your needs and your level of statistical knowledge.

I have assisted many students about the software, such as SPSS, SAS, STATA, R, and Excels on medical and business related research. I am also familiar with many other software, such as TreeAge, InkScape, TI-84e calculator, etc. I have provided statistical consulting service to many of my students on their research project, thesis/dissertation, and work related projects.

Feel free to let me know the details of your research project, your difficulty, and we can schedule a lesson at your earliest convenience. Thank you for reviewing my Bio. Please do not hesitate to contact me with your unique concerns on statistics. Together we will make statistics easy for you.
