My approach to tutoring is to explain things at a conceptual level so that statistics will actually make sense to you. I never ask students to blindly memorize formulas or to do calculations without understanding the reasoning behind them. I myself used to have a lot of trouble with statistics -- mostly because my professors would simply ask me to memorize formulas/procedures without explaining WHY.

So, in my teaching approach, I always strive to explain the conceptual reasoning behind every procedure. Whether it's applying a formula or making sense of SPSS output, my goal is to help you understand statistics.

My experience: I have taught undergraduate- and graduate-level statistics at three different universities. I have also worked as a statistical analyst in the Marketing department of a local hospital. Currently, I serve as a research consultant at a nearby university.
