I'm a research psychologist and Ph.D. statistician. I'm easy to work with, and have a sense of humor! I've used SPSS statistical software for a number of years and even own my own copy. I've been a luncheon speaker at a SPSS users group. I've worked on a great many applied research and program evaluation topics. These have included a wide range of topics, including: equal employment opportunity, employment discrimination, personnel research, organizational climate, and educational/training/bilingual/longitudinal program evaluation.

I am well-versed in attitude measurement, rating scale development, survey questionnaire design, not to mention a solid working knowledge of sampling methods. I know how to size up research issues, apply univariate and multivariate measurement techniques, program the analysis, set up statistical tables to display the major findings, interpret the results, and write a clear report summarizing those findings.

I've also written funding proposals for a number of consulting firms that bid on government contracts. Thus, I consider myself able to express myself and have a solid command of grammar. I've given seminars and invited luncheon speaker talks on using SPSS. For several organizations I've been a technical resource on research methods, including SPSS use, to fellow employees, and served as a methodology advisor on two doctoral dissertation committees.

On the side, I do a lot of volunteer work: I have experience singing in two choruses and have written press releases for a nonprofit organization for a number of years. I was the varsity basketball game PA announcer at City College of New York for 7 years, and for 13 years swimming/diving meet announcer summers and winters at local recreation club and high school meets. I also narrated a nationally distributed video on dealing with hate crimes. I've tutored first grade reading (to a student whose second language was English, first language Spanish). I'm proud that he definitely benefited from my working with him.

Milton replied on 7/22/2014

Thank you very much, Judy. I really value the role I played in helping you progress so much in completing the analyses you needed, AND that you were able to so easily understand what your results meant as evidence for testing your research hypotheses.

Yes, you're entirely right - running SPSS or other analyses is only part of the process: it's so much more important to be able to accurately interpret your findings. Yes, we got along very well, and your pleasure at accomplishing so much in a short time was contagious. (I also thank you for the compliment about my being 'charming'): if it made the learning process for you that much more effective, then it made everything worthwhile!

Amazingly brilliant and humble tutor — Milton is simply wonderful! Not only does he know his stuff, but he's incredibly patient with someone who has little experience with statistics and tends to be overwhelmed with data analysis processes. His sense of humor is greatly appreciated and his skill set and knowledge base are exceptional. Yet this very intelligent and knowledgeable person is not the least bit condescending.
