Steve Poulin’s career has been a journey from social science to data science. He has a Ph.D. in social policy from Columbia University, and from 1999 until 2010 he was part of a research team at the University of Pennsylvania, preparing and analyzing survey and administrative data. However, he became increasingly involved in statistics and data science when he began working as a trainer for the statistical software company SPSS, Inc. in 1997. Dr. Poulin completed his transition from social science to data science when he began working for SPSS full-time in 2010, which was purchased by IBM during that same year. He left IBM in 2014 to work with smaller data analytics firms, and returned to IBM in June of 2019. During his tenure as a trainer, he taught nearly every course offered by SPSS and IBM SPSS, and as a trainer and consultant, he has worked with more than 250 organizations. Dr. Poulin loves teaching statistics and data science.

I have been a trainer and consultant with SPSS statistical software products since 1997.

With 25 years of using SPSS Statistics and teaching statistics courses, I can offer an unparalleled level of expertise with the software and the statistical techniques it offers.

Amazing!

Steve is incredibly patient, so helpful, and REALLY knows how to navigate SPSS. I’m grateful for his help, and I know I will contact him in the future. If you’re looking for a great tutor, look no further. Steve is who you’re looking for.

Extremely helpful and great teacher

Steve knows his subject inside out and was a massive help to my son. We can’t thank him enough for his support and encouragement. Can highly recommend Steve as a tutor.

SPSS Master; Active Professor; Incredibly patient and kind person

Wow! I'm an adult learner, and I've used the Wyzant platform over the last couple of years as I've tried to hone skills around R, Tableau, and now SPSS, and while I've had some wonderful tutors, I've never had a tutor as truly masterful in their art as Steve. You can read his bio and see he has all the credentials of someone who'd know - and be able to teach - SPSS (e.g. worked at IBM, is a professor), but to experience his genuine interest is something else. Aside from a sincere introduction where he really aimed to get to know me and understand my SPSS needs, throughout the lesson, he would insert tips - unprompted - in ways to make the syntax more efficient, all while making sure I conceptually understood why. That's someone who genuinely cares! He's not just answering my questions; he's going above and beyond to be helpful and have me become the best SPSS user I can be. Also as my focus in on getting more comfortable writing (and reading my boss' SPSS syntax), this was a skills initially difficult to find someone on the platform who was either comfortable with this (many simply use the user interface) or lived up to their boasted credentials. Steve has spent decades with SPSS and should be anyone's go-to for more syntax needs and/or challening analysis (or even basic statistical analysis, he can do it all) . AND he's affordable to the average human. Wow. I feel so lucky he's on this platform!

Excellent

Excellent tutor for doctoral level students in IBM SPSS. He explained processes in terms that helped me understand not only how to run analysis but how to interpret results.

Outstanding

Dr. P was an outstanding tutor and I plan on meeting with him again for my biostatistics course. He was extremely knowledgeable about SPSS and taught me a lot of helpful tips for using the software as well as understanding statistics better. I cannot thank him enough!

Steve was AMAZING!!

Steve is incredible. I had so many question and he answered everything. Very knowledgable in SPSS. He is patient and understanding. I had so much anxiety about finding the right methods for my thesis, but he certainly eased the feeling. I am so grateful. I plan on booking regular appointments to learn more about SPSS. My session was fun and learned so much. He was also very accommodating. I booked him for 3 hours and time flew by because it was so enjoyable. If you want to learn SPSS, learn it with Steve! :)
