Nancy helped me with STATA. I had been struggling terribly with the class and she helped me figure out how to do the stuff that I needed to do.
I contacted Nancy to discuss highly skewed data, data transformations, and descriptive statistics. She responded to my initial request on the same day, immediately understood my concerns, and helped me differentiate seemingly similar statistical tests. I plan to seek her advice on other projects and highly recommend her as a tutor.
I am an adult student who returned to college in my late 40s. I was struggling through a Statistics class and Nancy responded immediately to my cry for help. On the same day, she came to my home for a 2 hour session. She was prompt, knowledgeable, and extremely patient with me as she explained concepts that were difficult to understand and helped me complete problems for software based topics. You will not be disappointed with her wealth of knowledge and willingness to share.
Nancy helped me with a stats project I had been working on for a long time. She spent time going over my analysis and research questions before we met, so was ready to begin helping me as soon as our session began. She answered all of my longstanding questions with clear and straightforward answers. She was also very gracious about the fact that my house does not have central AC and was probably a little warm. I would highly recommend Nancy for all your statistics dilemmas !
Nancy was a great tutor in every way! She is responsive to all messages and was very accommodating to my request for immediate help.
During the lesson she explained everything thoroughly and was quick to correct me if I made a mistake. I truly appreciate her expertise in STATA and statistical prowess.
I had so many questions going in and was worried if we would have enough time to cover it all. She answered all my questions and then taught me new things! We accomplished so much during our session and for that I'm truly grateful. I highly recommend Nancy to be your tutor.
So smart, nice, patient, and knowledgable in statistics. Very professional. I had a very difficult project for an advanced graduate course, Nancy was able to stay with me for 8-9 hours straight until we got the work done. I ended up with an A on the project and passed the class. She really helped me get through a tough time. Loyal to her students. Great great person to work with.
Nancy came to my office to help a colleague and me to become more familiar with SPSS. First of all, she was very responsive via email from the first communication I had with her; she always responded to my emails quickly. Secondly, she was very professional and very knowledgeable about statistical software. She was very conscious of time during our session and yet also very thorough in answering my questions and familiarizing us with the software. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting help with statistical software packages.
Nancy is tutoring my high school senior in AP Statistics and I couldn't be happier or more grateful. Nancy has been extremely responsive… to my initial query about her services and every step of the way through successive scheduling. She has been responsive to emails about content to review, and on all matters relating to this very challenging course for high schoolers. The tutoring sessions are fantastic… Nancy is prompt, cheerful, thorough, warm, focused, and seems to have a sense of humor that really works and helps with students at this age. The one-on-one is just what my daughter seems to need to get her over some difficult humps; her grade is improving and we are thrilled to have Nancy on our support team. As a parent, I too am benefitting by feeling calmer and more assured that we are doing everything possible with a highly qualified and affordable tutor on board. I can't recommend Nancy highly enough!
I cannot express how professional and academically astute Nancy is in Statistics. She really helped me learn the material. You will not be disappointed!
Fantastic! Very patient. Knows her stats. Easy going and flexible on finding a meeting place. I would highly recommend Nancy and use her again if necessary in the future.
I couldn't be more pleased with Nancy as a tutor. She went above and beyond to help me understand statistics. Highly recommend.
Nancy is appreciated for her promptness, knowledge, skill, and patience. This lesson was also a 5 star. She assisted me in completing my assigned work so I could concentrate on exams reviews.
Nancy is one of the most knowledgeable, caring, patient, accommodating, and most of all incredible people to know. I look forward to getting help from her and will recommend her to any one who needs help at any level. I am a doctoral student and I seek help from her for my work. She is the best!
I honestly felt very anxious about a particular statistics module and Nancy definitely put me at ease about it. She explained everything simply so that I wasn't reading a bunch of words that didn't make sense. She is extremely patient and thorough. She made sure she knew what my concerns were before we met for our lesson and came prepared with information she knew I'd need! I am so glad I found her and I definitely plan on being in touch when the next module starts so she can help me figure it all out again!
Totally pleased with my first experience with Ms. C. She is kind and also knows what she is talking about! She was also willing to go the extra mile and contacted me by phone even when out of the area. She is extremely knowledgeable regarding social sciences research due to significant personal experience (and it showed). She is pleasant and I would not hesitate to recommend her to any student needing assistance with a research (SPSS) project.
Thank the lord I found this tutor! She has helped more than I can express and is TOTALLY worth the cost!!! I really appreciate her invaluable assistance.
Nancy is a patient and linear thinker, which makes her an excellent tutor. She takes her time to prepare before your session, and often comes with supplementary materials to leave with you. Importantly- she truly understands statistics well enough to teach the subject. Highly recommend.
Thank you Sezan! Having details of what you wanted to work on several days beforehand allowed me the time to prepare specialized help, which I feel is the most effective use of our time together. When tutoring works well, it is a mutual enterprise. So thank you for providing the information I needed to be able to be a good tutor to you.
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.
I am a long-time, high-level user of Microsoft Windows, with particular expertise in Word and Excel. I have former colleagues who continue to call me to ask me questions about functions in Word and Excel when they can't get help from their IT department. I am primarily self-taught, and love to share software tips with others.
