About Shawn

Hi Everyone! Let me start with my background. I hold a BMath in Statistics from the University of Waterloo and a M.A in Applied Statistics from the University of Michigan. My relevant degrees and tutoring background make me a competent candidate.

I have been with WyzAnt for about a year and during this time, I tutored students with multiple backgrounds (science major, arts major, statistic major etc) and multiple academic levels (undergraduate students, master students and Ph.D students). Some of the classes I tutored covered the basic concepts in statistics such as calculating z-score, hypothesis testing and linear regression others covered very advanced topics such as using Neyman Allocation to design a sample and MANOVA. In addition, because of my software proficiency, I had no problem to explain how to conduct statistical analysis in R/SAS/SPSS. I absolutely love to hangout with my students! My knowledge helped them be confident in Statistics (to a lot of them this subject is very scary).

Give me a try and you will not be disappointed!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker. I am highly proficient in written Chinese and conversational Chinese. In the past, I tutored students who were new to the Chinese Language in the area of conversational Chinese and practicing short literature reviews on elementary literature journals.

Statistics

I hold a Master's degree in Applied Statistics. On multiple occasions (either TA or tutoring students at office hours) I demonstrated my competency to help students grasp different statistical concepts, such as linear/logistic regression, ANOVA, PCA, T-test, Chi-squared test, ARIMA, Hypothesis testing, point/interval estimation, Simulations (Metropolis, Gibbs, Genetic Algorithm), etc.

Friendly, Patient and Proficient Tutor — Shawn was happy to assist me with my Ph.D. research/analysis, which is not a task that many are willing to tackle. A project like this is not as simple as helping with homework assigned in a class where you already know there is a pre-determined answer (which I am sure he does with ease). Instead he was willing to dig into my research findings, ask questions and we worked together to create an act ...
