Hi! My name is Brandon. I completed my undergraduate degree in Mathematics (3.72 g.p.a) at Seton Hill University and completed my Master's in Statistics (3.47 g.p.a) at North Carolina State University. In addition to my degrees, I have passed an actuarial exam (Probability). Since graduating college, I have held multiple positions where I have developed many different skills in addition to my education background. I look forward to tutoring in algebra 1&2, calculus, statistics, Microsoft Excel, and R programming!

I have 5 years tutoring experience and have done both online and in-person tutoring. I have worked with students of many different levels. I have mostly worked with students one on one; however, in some instances I have tutored small groups online using blackboard collaborate. Through this experience, I realize we all learn differently! This is why I constantly adapt my style to individually meet student's needs. I have a lot of patience, so there is never a reason to feel frustrated in our sessions. Students are always treated with the highest level of respect. I strive to make every tutoring experience a pleasant one. I typically introduce the material in a simplistic way, follow up with examples, and then allow students opportunities to practice with my guidance. Questions are always welcome and encouraged!

It is my mission to help students be successful. I welcome any comments, suggestions, or feedback you may have. I am easy to reach and will always provide timely responses! Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions or would like to schedule a lesson!

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel

I’ve used MS Excel almost every day at work for the last 6 years. I have taken many trainings in addition to my work experience. I’m highly skilled using many of the functions (vlookups,sumifs, if statements,etc.), pivot tables, and I also write macros very frequently. Whether you need help comparing datasets, analyzing them, or summarizing them, I can help!

R

R

I’ve used R extensively throughout my master’s degree and at work. I really enjoy R and just how dynamic it can be! I can help with programming basic, writing functions, plotting with ggplot2 or plotly, and many of the statistical functions used in regression, time series, design of experiments, and machine learning.

Great R tutor

Brandon assisted me with an R Markdown project that I was struggling with--he was very knowledgeable and helped me piece together the concepts I was struggling with. I would definitely recommend him to others needing assistance with R!

Best tutor for Machine Learning and R Programming

Brandon made complicated subjects easy to understand. I am new to machine learning methods in R and he made it ENJOYABLE! I highly recommend him and will be using him again!

Awesome teacher

I wasn’t aware of the loop concept in r programming while working for machine working,but brandon introduced me this concept.. so that it gives my predictions more accuracy He really helped me to diagnose the problem in my existing code and make it work I enjoyed learning from him

Sunanda, 1 lesson with Brandon

Brandon is great!

Super experienced and really breaks everything down simply. Could not recommend Brandon more if you are stuck on a problem in R and need someone to work on it with.

Awesome Tutor

This review is for Brandon who is a wiz at R statistical programming. He has helped me so much with my R HW in my graduate level studies as well as helped me with data science projects. He is like an encyclopedia of knowledge for R coding and he's especially helpful when he uses the coding feature on the whiteboard. He is great at problem solving in my multiple and simple linear regression graduate homework. Even if he doesn't know the answer to a question, he researches it and gets back to you with his interpretation of the problem as well as the solution. He never talks down to you and is patient enough to explain when you've hit a road block in order to get that "aha" moment after your frustration and confusion. His knowledge as well as super friendly nature makes him a great tutoring candidate for one of your graduate or undergraduate course. I would highly recommend! Thanks Brandon

knowledgeable and a great teacher

I asked Brandon to help me with R. I took a junior level analysis class that required us to program in R, which I had only been learning for a month and a half. He was very patient, and explained things in a way so that I remembered everything. He even showed me quick ways to getting info I needed to look at in regression without going the longer way taught in class. He even answered questions I had between the tutoring sessions via email. Because of his help, I got a 100 on my homework. And I was able to replicate what he taught me, apply it on my final (2 parts), and got a 94 and a 100 on it.

Knowledge and Patient Tutor

Brandon is very well versed in R programming and data analysis. He helped me prep for my final exam and R project by reviewing multiple assignments/codes with me and explaining complex concepts in digestible ways. He has helped with everything I've asked and patiently answers all the questions considering I am completely new to programming. Thank you Brandon! He has helped with everything I've asked and then some. Very patient considering I am a beginner at programming and explains topics and concepts well.

Friendly and helpful tutor

Brandon helped me create data frames using R and brainstorm how best to graphically display my data. The session was efficient and painless. Thanks, Brandon!!

Emily, 4 lessons with Brandon

Very helpful and a great tutor!

Comprehensive RStudio review! Brandon helped me understand a lot of the basic functions with R, such as t-tests, the wilcox test, boxplots, and histograms. He was very helpful and knew a lot about the material that I was working on.

Awesome!

Brandon was awesome and gave me a thorough review on linear regression for my research (with notes as well). He was very patient and willing to reiterate information for me.
