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. 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...

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. 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 team at USF. Currently I am an instructor at USF teaching statistics to undergraduate and graduate students. I am able to teach Excel, SAS, SQL, and R, 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. Teaching students these subjects is the same as me having a conversation about a topic for fun.

Not everyone one learns the same way, so I adapt my teaching styles to each student's specific needs. I can do this during in person session or online. I will do my best to help you understand the material and in I can make our sessions as entertaining as possible by being dynamic in my approaches.

It should be noted that I allow for students to reschedule and cancel lessons. My policy is you should inform me that you need to cancel a lesson with at least 12 hours notice. If you are unable to make a session, I wait 15 minutes from the start time, and do not inform me before the lesson starts, you will be charged a cancellation fee of $15.

Patient and extremely knowledgable

Markku helped review basic stats with me. He was extremely patient and made sure that I understood all the basics of the homework problems we were reviewing before we moved on. He made it easy to understand the concepts and I look forward to our next session together!

Of great help!

Markku was great in helping me understand how statistics are used in real life research situations and analyses. Will definitely book again!

Regina, 1 lesson with Markku

Best tutor!

Markku was a wonderful tutor and helped me understand complex concepts using SPSS. He didn't just provide me with answers, and rather explained why I was completing a certain tasks or command, which helped me complete problems on my own. Once we were finished with my sessions, he also provided academic and career advice, which was extremely helpful. Highly recommend Markku as a tutor!

Sufiya, 5 lessons with Markku

Markku is knowledgeable and efficient!

Markku helped me to understand some of the most difficult coding processes in SAS programming. With his help, I'm going to finish with an A in my course and will be 1 step closer to my degree.

Bryan, 12 lessons with Markku

Clear and Consistent

Markku surpassed my expectations. He is punctual, dependable, and conversational. He is comfortable to talk to when troubleshooting statistical analysis presentations. A go to resource for learning how to think about writing code in SAS. His tutoring style feels like a mix of mentoring, coaching, and an "office hour" all in one.

excellent at explaining

I went into the session completely clueless. I left being able to complete an assignment on my own, and get a perfect score the first try.
