For the last 6 years (at Duke University, and now at UCLA), I have been using SAS to perform data coding and statistical analyses for behavioral and neuroimaging experiments. Statistical analyses I have conducted using SAS include t-tests, GLM and ANOVA procedures, data reduction techniques (such as Principal Component Analysis or Factor Analysis), and regression procedures. I am a PhD student at UCLA, in the topics of Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience.

Soccer,

Soccer

I have been an avid soccer player ever since I was a little kid. I played two seasons in high school, as well as on a club team, as a defense position. I've also been regularly playing soccer in local clubs and pickup games. I am particularly skilled at ball control in the air (juggling) and on the ground, passing short-range and long-range, and defense strategies, as well as shooting techniques.
Tennis

Tennis

I have been an avid tennis player ever since I started receiving tutoring lessons at age 14. In high school, I played on a double's team for 2 seasons. Since then, I have been playing regularly in my spare time. I am particularly skilled at strong yet accurately placed forehands, backhand spins, and hitting rallies from baseline.

Reviews

Excellent teacher with outstanding knowledge

All I can say is that you literally cannot choose a better tutor than him. I asked him to teach me classes on computer applications to have a general knowledge for my job interviews where they would actually test me on these applications. He is an excellent teacher who knows exactly what and how to teach so that after our last session I felt what a strong general knowledge I gained thanks to his outstanding teaching abilities.
