Steve Poulin’s career has been a journey from social science to data science and back. 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 transitioned 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. In 2022 he became a full-time faculty member of the Northern Kentucky University School of Social Work.
With 25 years of using SPSS Statistics and teaching statistics courses, Dr. Poulin can offer an unparalleled level of expertise with the software and the statistical techniques it offers. He also loves teaching research, statistics and data science.
The best tutor!

Great tips and very easy to work with!
Steve made me (anxious wreck) feel so at ease and eliminate all my stress surrounding using SPSS. While I may not know the answer to every question, he helped me understand the uses of certain tests and showed me a few tips that made the program that much more user friendly. Will definitely be booking again!Veronica, 1 lesson with Steve
