About Markku


Bio

I am a PhD candidate at University of South Florida in Biostatistics. I have found that students learn best when the teacher approaches the lesson like a conversation rather than a lecture. This helps the student be engaged in the material and allows the instructor to better determine how well a student knows the material. There is no one size fits all method for teaching, so I start by understanding how each student learns best and tailor my lessons to that type of learning. I do my best...

I am a PhD candidate at University of South Florida in Biostatistics. I have found that students learn best when the teacher approaches the lesson like a conversation rather than a lecture. This helps the student be engaged in the material and allows the instructor to better determine how well a student knows the material. There is no one size fits all method for teaching, so I start by understanding how each student learns best and tailor my lessons to that type of learning. I do my best to be able to explain or display every topic in at least three different ways, because it ensures I now the material extremely well and when a student is struggling with a subject it helps to hear it described differently. I am available for both in person sessions as well as online sessions. Regardless if the session are in person or online, my methods of teaching will adapt to the student's needs.

While working towards my degree I have practical experience preforming statistical analysis as part of a research research team at USF. Currently I am an instructor at USF teaching statistics to undergraduate and graduate students. Teaching graduate level statistics requires me to also be knowledgeable about all levels of Algebra and Calculus. I am able to teach Excel, SAS, SQL, R, and Python as I have practical experience using them to conduct statistical analysis while working on research projects during my Master's and PhD programs. I enjoy teaching because I am passionate about the subjects that I teach. So teaching students these subjects is the same as me having a conversation about a topic for fun.

My years of education in mathematics focusing on statistics and practical experience doing data analysis as part of research teams have allowed me to constantly improve my understanding of topics from basic Algebra to Calculus along with Probability theory. They all play a part in statistics. My years of teaching experience have taught me how to work with people who have little to no understanding of statistics and co

Ana N, 1 lesson with Markku

Extremely knowledgeable in SAS

Excellent tutor. I plan on using him all semester, assuming he doesn't fire me. He knows SAS and stats like the back of his hand and pushes you to think and get it right.

Samantha, 14 lessons with Markku

Great lesson

I need very specific things out of Excel and was able to get this with Markku's help. He is very knowledgeable. Highly recommend him for any excel needs you might have.

Martina, 3 lessons with Markku

Knowledgeable tutor

As a non-native English speaker, I sometimes struggle with explaining some things and I may not be totally clear. I felt that this made Mikku slighly annoyed, however, he is definitely a smart person with in-depth knowledge of statistics.
