I believe that statistics is a foreign language to most. Therefore as a tutor and teacher of statistics, I know the material needs to be broken down into simple terms and taught to students from their strengths and their interests. When I tutor, I tutor from my student's frame of reference I cater to their strengths in order to make the material simple and easy to understand.
I am currently a professor and have over 5 years experience of teaching statistics. I have taught everything from introductory statistics to advanced graduate statistics. Through my experience teaching and consulting I have become well versed in SPSS and Excel.
Please feel free to contact me at any time. I am very flexible in my time and meeting places. If you would like some examples of my tutoring style tailored for you please reach out.

I found Michael to be extremely helpful in helping me to grasp statistics I a conceptual and real way. I am not one to whom math or statistics comes naturally and my statistics class is thus very daunting. Michael was able to work with me and put the problems into terms I could better understand, which had the effect of not just helping me get through each section but actually retain and build upon the information we study, a skill that is extremely important in this case. He also has been excellent working with my disability and in giving me test taking strategies and tips. Overall, my success in this class is due entirely to him.
Michael was fantastic. He really tries to understand how you think by using your interests to make math more understandable. He really went above and beyond. He’s really nice and makes jokes so that’s always a plus.
Michael was a fantastic tutor and would definitely use his service again If needed. I took intro to business statistics in a 4 week rushed class and Michael was able to coach me through it and really help me learn the concepts. Highly recommend.
Michael simplified concepts into small bites, little by little. After one session I was no longer intimidated by my coursework and was ready to try my problems.
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 have been tutoring and helping students prep for the GRE for 10 years. I have always been able to help my students increase their scores and most get into their top school choice. The key for me for the GRE is teaching you how to take the GRE once you understand that the questions become easier.
