Amazing teacher!

Dr V is a brilliant teacher, he guided me with statistics work that I struggled with. He was able to break down the concepts and provide me with tools that gave me a better understanding. He is also very funny and patient.

Really understands what students are feeling

I appreciated Steve's patience and understanding. He gets what it's like to be a student who is new to statistics, and he can meet you where you are while inserting some humor and levity.

Amazing Tutor!

Steve has been tutoring me in statistics this summer and has been a huge help. He not only has helped me understand how to do practice problems but also helps me understand the big picture behind these problems, making course content easier to understand. He is patient, thorough, and cares about his students doing well! Would definitely recommend working with Steve!
