All of David’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about David’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Probability

Many students struggle with probability because it requires the basic analytical skills of memorizing and applying the use of several formulas, as well as the a mathematical maturity forcing students to understand interesting and sometimes confusing problems in the fields of statistics, mathematics, and business.

I have been studying probability since 2003. I have taken several courses on the subject both in my undergraduate and graduate studies at Purdue University. I have also passed the first actuarial exam which has probability as its primary content matter. Beyond taking courses in probability, I have tutored probability since 2004. I have also taught probability courses to undergraduates for two semesters at Purdue.

In these courses we covered set theory, discrete distributions (including Bernoulli, Binomial, Poisson, Negative Binomial, Hypergeometric, and Geometric), and continuous distributions (including Uniform, Gaussian (or Normal), Gamma, and Exponential).

SAS

SAS is one of the most popular statistical software programs used both commercially and in academia. Understanding SAS programming will tremendously help any student learning statistics or data management.

I have been using SAS for over five years. I have used SAS in several courses, projects, and work assignments. I have already tutored several statistics courses that have had a heavy focus on the use of SAS, both in programming and more importantly, in interpreting SAS output. I currently use SAS on a daily basis in my job as a financial statistical consultant.

I have used many of the popular statistical procedures such as Proc Freq, Proc Means, Proc Univariate, Proc GLM, and Proc Logistic. I also have experience reading in data sets of various formats. Finally, I am experienced with data management programming syntax and logic, such as if statements and variable transformations, and I am somewhat familiar with macros.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
