I've used SPSS statistical software for a number of years, writing specialized programs, and even own my own copy. I've been a luncheon speaker at a SPSS users group.

I'm a research psychologist and Ph.D. statistician. I'm easy to work with, and have a sense of humor! I've used SPSS statistical software for a number of years, writing specialized programs, and even own my own copy. I've been a luncheon speaker at a SPSS users group. I've worked on a great many applied research and program evaluation topics. These have included a wide range of topics, including: equal employment opportunity, employment discrimination, personnel research, organizational climate, and educational/training/bilingual/longitudinal program evaluation.
I am well-versed in attitude measurement, rating scale development, survey questionnaire design, not to mention a solid working knowledge of sampling methods. I know how to size up research issues, apply univariate and multivariate measurement techniques, program the analysis, set up statistical tables to display the major findings, interpret the results, and write a clear report summarizing those findings.
I've also written funding proposals for a number of consulting firms that bid on government contracts. Thus, I consider myself able to express myself and have a solid command of grammar. I've given seminars and invited luncheon speaker talks on using SPSS. For several organizations I've been a technical resource on research methods, including SPSS use, to fellow employees, and served as a methodology advisor on two doctoral dissertation committees. I've also worked with a number of graduate students on their masters theses or doctoral dissertations, strengthening their research designs, and how statistically defensible was their work.
On the side, I do a lot of volunteer work: I have experience singing in three choruses and have written press releases for a nonprofit organization for a number of years which have been sent to local newspapers and other publicity settings. I was the varsity basketball game PA announcer at City College of New York for 7 years, and for 20 years announced swimming/diving meets during summers at local recreation clubs,
Amazingly brilliant and humble tutor
Milton is simply wonderful! Not only does he know his stuff, but he's incredibly patient with someone who has little experience with statistics and tends to be overwhelmed with data analysis processes. His sense of humor is greatly appreciated and his skill set and knowledge base are exceptional. Yet this very intelligent and knowledgeable person is not the least bit condescending. Milton differentiates his instruction based on the person's comfort level with challenging or abstract concepts. He is the perfect tutor for anyone needing assistance with statistical analyses and especially SPSS. My confidence and comprehension have both benefited from my tutoring experience with Milton. He's the best!!!Cynthia, 3 lessons with Milton

Milton was extremely knowledgeable about SPSS. He came to the lesson prepared and was able to help me through the SPSS process for my senior thesis without problem in just two lessons. I’d recommend Milton to anybody who needs SPSS help!Taylor, 1 lesson with MiltonTutor responded:
Taylor, I thoroughly appreciate your glowing testimonial! There's a good reason that I come prepared to tutor students: because I want them to BENEFIT from working with me! And yes, it also helped that due to my years of using and tutoring SPSS, I was able to 'size up' the best ways of harnessing SPSS features to meet your needs. Thanks again, and much success to you in the future, Milton
Milton was able to take the "foreign language" of statistics and translate it into English for me. We completed some SPSS basics as well as worked through statistical work problems looking for meaningfulness.Nicole, 2 lessons with Milton

Milton is going to save my GPA!
We worked on the basics of SPSS. Walked through how the software does the analysis and on a few examples. I was able to get caught up on the last few weeks confident to go into the next few, even more confident that I can hire Milton again if I run into any problems!Katymarie, 3 lessons with Milton
Knowledgeable and kind tutor
Milton and I went over an ANOVA problem and he taught me very thoroughly step by step how to go through the problem. He's very keen on details and can you tell anything and everything about every step and concept!Yureea, 1 lesson with MiltonTutor responded:
Thanks very much, Yureea--it was a pleasure tutoring you. And the most important thing occurred--our step by step going over each part of the ANOVA problem worked, and you also saw how similar those steps were to the steps needed in the other similar ANOVA problems! You learned!! I'm very pleased at that, continued success in your schooling!
I would surely use his tutoring services again. He has a great way of explaining statistical terminology, making them easy to understand. He comes prepared with documents that helps with the tutoring session. And he is friendly, easy going.Emecca, 1 lesson with Milton
