About Jim

I have over 20 years of REAL experience in the field of statistics. When I first started, statistics was extremely difficult. Almost like a foreign language. Through both my job as well as teaching, I understand not only statistical applications, but HOW to best teach the subject to people. I have taught at the University of Utah as well as Front Range Junior College in Longmont Colorado. I understand that people learn differently, and part of my job as a tutor is to quickly figure out the best approach, and help you learn the way you learn best. I can apply statistics because I'm a real practitioner. I would be willing to meet in Longmont or Boulder, preferably in a coffee house.

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.

Praxis

I have a B.S. degree in Mathematics, and M.S. degree in Mathematical Statistics with over 21 years of practical experience in actually using mathematics and statistics in industry. This corresponds well with the math portion of Praxis (number theory, measurement, probability, algegra, geometry, reasoning, etc), In addition, I have tutored at least 40 students over the years and have taught approximately 20 university classes and have gained insight into various student learning methods. Lastly, my ability to teach adults in mathematics (especially Praxis, which deals with practical adult learning) is the 21 years of consulting with engineers, financial professionals, nurses, and other professionals. I believe this will translate well to tutoring in the mathematics portion of Praxis.

SAT Math

I have an MS degree in Mathematical statistics and over 23 years of experience using this subject in industry. I know how to make abstract topics very practical and have done this through both training engineers as well as high school and college students.

Statistics

Have an M.S. Degree in Statistics: Can tutor topics in confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, T-Test, ANOVA, Regression, Probability distributions, graphical analysis, and several other topics.

Hands down, Jim's the best! — Math has always been my worst subject, and when I started statistics, it truly felt like a foreign language. A month or so in to the semester a classmate and I were at what felt like rock bottom. We understood very little and just couldn't apply the few things that we did grasp. We found Jim on WyzAnt and he was a Godsend!!! He is easy to schedule sessions with, has a working knowledge of the subj ...
