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

GRE

I have three primary qualifications for tutoring students on the Quantitative portion of the GRE:

1) I am a former test development specialist for ETS, the publisher of the GRE, and have written math questions for the GRE and other ETS tests;

2) I have taught college and graduate-level courses in algebra, calculus, and statistics; and

3) I have tutored more than a dozen individuals on the GRE Quantitative section with great results.

Note: I do not offer tutoring on the Verbal and Writing sections of the GRE.

SPSS

SPSS can be very intimidating, especially if you are trying to learn it at the same time you are learning statistics. It is a big program that can run a huge variety of statistical analyses.

The good news is that, in most classes, you will only need to run a few of these analyses. In my experience tutoring students on SPSS, you can learn the basics of SPSS pretty quickly. Once you have learned these basics, you can begin to appreciate SPSS's ability to solve statistical problems in the blink of an eye.

I have been using SPSS since I was an undergraduate at Georgia Tech, and have used it regularly throughout my professional life. Whether you are taking an intro statistics course or an advanced multivariate statistics course, or are completing a thesis or dissertation, I can help you learn to use SPSS so that it becomes a time-saving tool, not an obstacle to success.

Statistics

Many people fear statistics, and I can understand why that is. Statistics courses and research courses require us to look at the world from a different viewpoint than the one we're used to. However, I've found that almost everyone is capable of putting on a different pair of glasses and learning how to think like a statistician -- at least enough to get through a stats course or a dissertation! I've used statistics in my professional and academic life for more than 30 years. As a professor and a tutor I have helped hundreds of students understand and apply statistics in many different situations, including research in social science, education, medicine, nursing, public policy, and business. I'm experienced in statistical software including SPSS, R, and Microsoft Excel.

If you're taking a class where you have to work things out "by hand," I can help with that also. Whether you're taking an introductory course or using multivariate statistics in a dissertation, I can help you get through it, and hopefully even enjoy it a bit. It *is* possible!

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.
