A strong liberal arts education and a long career in statistical modeling have left me filled with facts and skills that I am motivated to pass on. Most important of these is a strong intuition for rooting out problems in analyses and finding alternative ways to make things work. I believe these are both teachable skills.

Excellent Tutor! — Michael is a great tutor! He is focused, patient, and knowledgeable. He helped me with my doctoral level statistics and research methods which I was finding very challenging.

I highly recommend him! ...
