I am currently an educational/statistical consultant for SPSS, an IBM Co. I am an IBM Certified trainer in SPSS and Modeler and teach SPSS and Modeler classes part-time for IBM. I retired from IRS in Dec. 2007, after 32 years with the U.S. Federal Government.

At IRS, I was known as “Mr. DIF” because of my leadership, oversight, and hands-on development of IRS’ discriminant function (DIF) statistical models for selecting all types of tax compliance workload. At IRS, I also accumulated extensive experience in: 1) other case selection and resource allocation modeling using regression and decision tree (CHAID, CART, & C5.0) methods; 2) tax gap and tax compliance research analysis and economic modeling; 3) business measures development, monitoring, and analysis; 4) sample survey design and analysis; and, 5) customer satisfaction survey design and market segment analysis.

I have exceptional leadership, project management, and statistical analysis and modeling skills, and I am very proficient in IBM SPSS (using it for statistical analysis and modeling) and Modeler software (using it for statistical analysis and modeling and for text and data mining). I am also proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Visual Basic.

My degree is in Statistics and I spent 32 years at IRS conducting various research projects---10 years as a mathematical statistician and 22 years as a research manager. Currently, as an independent contractor, I teach SPSS and Modeler for IBM. I teach 22 different classes, ranging from simply how to use the SPSS and the Modeler software to how to use SPSS to conduct complex statistical analysis and modeling and how to use the Modeler software to do data mining and text mining. I have been teaching these subjects since June 2008, after I retired from IRS.

Since June 2008, I have been teaching numerous advanced statistical analysis classes for IBM, including the class entitled Advanced Statistical Methods for Healthcare Research. This particular class covers many biostatistical methods such multi-way and multivariate ANOVA, linear & logistic regression, discriminant analysis, and t-tests. In addition, I have been tutoring many students in advanced statistical research and analysis---consistently receiving the highest ratings.

Great teacher!

I needed help with an SPSS assignment for school and he knew exactly what to do to guide me through it!

Blake, 1 lesson with Donald

PPS analysis

Donald is very patient and knowledgeable. Also responds quickly. Tries to be very accommodating in scheduling. I can definitely recommend him when assistance with statistics is required.

Steven, 4 lessons with Donald

Excellent tutor

I need an overview of SPSs and Don provided me exactly what I needed. He systematically demonstrated SPSS features and incorporated any questions I had into the demonstration.

John, 1 lesson with Donald

Knowledgeable and great tutor

Donald and I went over the basics of SPSS, the different functions and how it operates using sample data. We discussed data quality and how to manipulate and massage data

Adam, 2 lessons with Donald

Great SPSS ANOVA tutor

An extremely productive session. I feel prepared for my exam and have a grasp of concepts that were difficult for me too understand. Great instructor. Very knowledgeable.

Alisa, 1 lesson with Donald

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I am at the start of an advanced inferential statistics class. Don has been a patient and knowledgeable tutor. He is helping me to put the pieces together between the previous statistics class and the current curriculum. This semester will be a lot less stressful with his guidance. I am looking forward working with him each week to give context to the lesson being taught.

Tim, 12 lessons with Donald

We had a great lesson

Our session was a refresher course in statistics and SPSS. We reviewed chi squares, ANOVAs, types of variables and SPSS shortcuts. He verified that my content analysis was on the right track, but also gave me ideas to improve the study. The hour with him saved me many hours of grief. I plan to work with him again.

Lori, 2 lessons with Donald

SPSS Modeler Professional

Mr. Donald helped me with my data mining using SPSS modeler. He was patient and he took his time to explain every thing in details to me. I will surely recommend him and will use him again. I really learnt a lot today. Thanks
