About Milton


Bio

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...

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, and winters at local high school meets. I also narrated a nationally distributed video on dealing with hate crimes. I've tutored first grade reading (to a student whose second language was English, first language Spanish). I'm proud that he definitely benefited from my working with him.

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 Milton
Tutor 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!

Very Knowledgeable

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

Helpful tutor for SPSS/Stats

Milton really helped me with research analysis using the SPSS statistical data software package. Without him I would not have been able to complete my project. However, after spending two hours with him I was able to feel confident about the entire thing. I would recommend for anyone needing statistics help, SPSS help, or research analysis help, especially as it coincides with the social sciences.

Rachel, 1 lesson with Milton
Tutor responded:

Rachel-- Thank you very much for your feedback. It really was very easy to work with you: you readily grasped how to harness SPSS features AND statistical methods, as two research tools for meeting your data analysis needs. So it really was my pleasure!

Excellent tutor!

Milton is extremely knowledgeable with SPSS but the best part is that he can explain the process in terms that beginner can understand. I was unsure of not only the “how” but as well as the “why” when it came to a process in the system and he was able to teach and guide me so I was able to understand. I would recommend Milton to anyone regardless of his or her level as he is able to adjust accordingly to the student. Excellent tutor!

Ron, 1 lesson with Milton
Tutor responded:

Ron-- I appreciate your thoughtful comment very much! Your comments hit on probably one of the most important yet not always appreciated qualities of a tutor--- can they COMMUNICATE? It's not always the knowledge that a tutor might have (that some students take for granted), but can they express it at a suitable level, and patiently enough to meet the student's sometimes multiple needs? Again, thank you very much, and I look forward to working with you again!

SPSS data analysis and follow up, literary reference

Milton helped me understand more about t-tests, the t distribution and median split halves for small sample sizes. He explained it slowly and thoroughly. His output print out is easier to read because he formatted it in Microsoft Word. He was very helpful in a very short amount of time because I had a time crunch.

Lori, 2 lessons with Milton

Very Knowledgeable

I had an hour long phone discussion with Milton about a project I am working on. I found him very knowledgeable in statistics and he provided me good feedback on the work I am doing. He answered my questions and gave me some good ideas about how to conduct my analysis.

K, 2 lessons with Milton

Milton the Personable Tutor

Milton was very nice and generally wanted me to get the concepts. When I logged into my class I realized that I did the questions correctly. I knew the concepts but could remember all of the complex parts of statistics. It seemed like Milton and I worked together and learned together. He is very personable and worked to connect with me Thanks

Phillip, 1 lesson with Milton

Excellent at SPSS

He help me refine and recode my data. He showed me how to analyze the data. I would recommend him. He is flexible with meeting places/time. He is a patient teacher that explains things well. I felt comfortable when I left the session that I could try to do some things on my own.
