My students have been from all schools (on-line or live) and all degree programs. They have been doing all kinds of degrees; business, nursing, psychology or engineering. I have students who are working full time and need help with using MS Excel to do their work. Don't be afraid to look for help - it will be worth it in the short and the long run. There is never such a thing as a dumb question. Please reach out and see if I can help you meet your educational goals.
I have many years of extensive education and application in the business world. I would like to bring that help and insight to you and help you find out what you really need in the "real world." Book knowledge is great, but knowing how to apply it is the most important thing.
I love to have fun when I'm teaching or training. I currently train corporate employees in process improvement. My technical background as well as my MBA allows me to bring plenty of insight into how to get things done. Math (using Excel) and statistics (using Minitab or SPSS) are big part of doing this. I like to work with people who use SPSS, Minitab or JMP. I can help you with Excel as well. I look forward to hearing from you if you need help with your quantitative methods classes. I also help students who are studying biostatistics.
I have a Master's degree in Chemical Engineering from McGill University and an MBA from University of Edinburgh, Scotland.
When I'm not improving processes, I love to play and referee soccer. I also like reading and writing. My students have been from all schools (on-line or live) and all degree programs. They have been doing all kinds of degrees; business, nursing, psychology or… Read more
I will give you a 10% discount for a commitment of 5-10 hours of tutoring.
John K has been very helpful in assisting me with my writing, with his help I've been able to present excellent papers using APA format. He's very knowledgeable, patient and responds promptly to any questions I have. I recommend him and I will be using his services again.
John is a wonderful tutor! He's very knowledgeable and reliable. He's one of the best tutors from WyzAnt. John keep up the good work!
John has been the best tutor I have ever had for statistics. He is very relaxed and gave me a lot of confidence. While other tutors have made me feel incapable, John left me with a very positive outlook. I highly recommend him!!!
John is very smart. Got great tips. Changed my mind about how I felt about Statistics. I felt confident and had a better understanding of the material. I would strongly recommend him, I wish I found him sooner.
I am currently working on my clinical doctorate degree. I have been fortunate to work with John on two occasions thus far. Each session was extremely productive! We got a 100% on the first assignment. John is very knowledgeable, intelligent, calm, patient and willing to teach his students. He is efficient and maximizes the time. I am very happy to be working with him and would highly recommend him to others. He is a keeper and I look forward to my continued work with him!
John was fantastic! He made statistics seem extremely easy. Thanks to him I received a 9/10 on my quiz. I recommend him to anyone struggling with statistics.
I starting losing hope in understanding the concepts in statistics but John reassures me. He is a very respectable and patient man. Not to mention, his fee is very reasonable for the service that he provides. He takes his time and I have never felt rushed for time. I would recommend him in a heart beat.
I know John for almost a year. He is expert in his field. He is very patient and he uses different ways to help you understand the subject. Over all, he is absolutely the person that you can rely on.
I was literally scared of the idea of math. I could not even cope with basic add and subtract computations but since I started lessons with John I have grown from fear to confident. I have moved from simple additions to solving basic algebra.
John is very patient and easy to deal with. My daughter is getting a great deal of help from him and enjoys working with him.
Solid all around. I will use again, very helpful. He knows stats well and is very friendly. His availability was great.
John K. has a patient and straightforward manner that allows his students to learn and understand even the most complex concepts with ease. As a statistics tutor, John K. has been able to turn confusion and failing grades into clarity
and A's in a few short weeks.
Thanks so much for your great feedback Margaret. It is a pleasure working with students who apply themselves and are keen to improve.
John was very patient and responded to my questions promptly. He is extremely knowledgeable and offered valuable suggestions on improving on my paper. He worked efficiently given the tight deadline I had and was truly a life saver when I was completing my thesis. Overall , I had a wonderful experience and would definitely recommend him to others.
Almost a savior for me. Always willing to go back if you have any that's not clear. Very warm and helpful tutor. A bit pricey yes but very well worth it. After seeing him for about twice as well as an online session we had, I scored a 90 on my Biometrics exam. However even after the first day I felt I made a big boost forward in my studies.
I chose John because of the great reviews and proximity. My daughter felt defeated in her AP Calc AB class and because of her tutoring sessions with John, she's now ecstatic and looking forward actual tests.
John K is an excellent tutor, I am a Masters degree student who was struggling with statistic and since I started working with John I regained my confidence. He explains the problems and timely walked me through the steps. I cannot find words to say how grateful I am to John K. I can truly say John K is your solution to any math problems that you are having. Thank you John
This is my second term working with John on Stats. I passed Stats 1 and I didn't think that was possible. I have two weeks left in Stats 2 and it looks good. I am so fortunate to have found John here at Wyzant. He is truly a God Send. He is patient,knowledgeable( what he does not know he will research it before going forward), he is personable and just a Good Person. He makes me feel comfortable no matter how dumb I may feel.
John has helped me very much with a subject that scares me to death! He has helped me build my confidence in regards to this subject and I discovered that I know more than I thought when it comes to completing my assignments. Yet, I would not be able to do any of this without John.
I am so very grateful to him and this service.
Thank You John, Thank You Wyzant.
Of all the tutors I have found on WyzAnt John is by far the best teacher and the most knowledgeable. I used him both both Statistics and Excel, both of which he was very knowledgeable and proficient in his teaching methods. John works through the problems with you and any ambiguity he immediately looks up or will follow up for you. He is always around to help, and when the student or John is not available to meet we use a team viewer to share screens from remote locations to do the work even when not in the same location. He is the best tutor I have used on WyzAnt for his knowledge of subjects, teaching abilities, friendliness, and overall helpfulness.
With out John, I wouldn't have been able to get through my Statistics class. He turned an incredibly hard class into an easy one. From the first tutoring session I knew that he would be helpful. He helped me with every topic from homework to class problems. He didn't make me feel rushed or pressured to learn a topic. He took his time and was very patient, making sure I fully understood a topic before we moved on to a next one. He prepared in advance for my exams and made sure I knew every thing ahead of time leaving plenty of time in case I felt I wasn't ready. He helped prepare a quick study sheet before every exam which really helped. He's very knowledgeable in many programs such as excel and taught me easy ways to remember formulas and when to use them. He was very flexible with scheduling and made plenty of time for tutoring. He was available by email anytime I had a quick question. I would highly recommend John to anyone needing a fantastic tutor!
John K. was the best !Knowledgeable, calm-read the assignment and was immediately able to calm me down and get an A plus paper put together!!Will use again if needed -very much recommended!
I just had my first lesson with John and I was very impressed by his knowledge of the subject and the way he was able to understand my needs during the studies and the material I needed to master. He had also a great patience and gave positive feedback. He answered all my questions and demonstrated a great knowledge on the use of computer related to my studies. If you need a tutor who is knowledgeable, patient and interesting to work with, he is the one!
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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have an extensive background in statistical analysis due to my training as a Master's in Chemical Engineering. The application of statistics to living systems is a specific case with certain novel aspects. Because living systems are unique in almost each case, statistics take on a more important role than in the manufacturing industry, for example. The use of hypothesis testing and odds ratios in medicine is extremely important in research and drug development.
I have worked in the performance improvement and quality area known as Six Sigma for the past 8 years. In this field we apply statistics to demonstrate that we have made an improvement to an existing process that is statistically significant. In biostats we are also trying to make the same determinations from the data we collect about our patients. I am adept at helping the student understand concepts that are not commonly addressed in other subjects.
I have used MS Excel for more than 20 years. I use Excel as part of my job as a chemical engineer.
As an engineer, I have learned to use mathematics and statistics to develop solutions to problems. I worked in research for many years and now I work in process improvement. In each of these activities we use statistics to conduct data analysis. In process improvement, I am a Master Black Belt, the highest qualification for a Six Sigma practitioner. I have tutored many people in the use of statistical tools for analysis like SPSS.
I have spent most of my professional career presenting my work and ideas to customers, in writing and in presentations. I have learned to write papers on many different subjects with good grammar and well formed ideas. I can write papers in APA style and with correct citations. Let me know if I can help you.
