About Steve

My undergraduate degree is from Princeton, and I have a Master's degree in Statistics and a Ph.D. in Geography, both from the University of Minnesota. I homeschooled my son for his three middle-school years. I've been tutoring for several years now.

While I specialize in teaching math and statistics to both children and adults, I have experience tutoring in other areas such as high school science, language arts, Japanese, and preparation for standardized tests like the ACT and SAT. I prefer to tutor in or near my home near the U of MN.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biostatistics

In addition to getting a master's degree in Statistics, I have taken courses in Biostatistics, specifically Survival Analysis and Clinical Trials. I have also tutored Biostatistics students in the past.

STATA

I've used Stata in my dissertation work, which involved combining data on firms, their industries and their locations and running a series of logistic regression models. As part of this work I programmed Monte Carlo simulations to analyze the residuals from the models. I have used Stata extensively since the mid-1990s.

Statistics

I have a master's degree in Statistics in addition to a PhD in Geography and have taught statistical methods as a adjunct faculty member at the U of MN.

I also recently worked as a statistician at Apple in California.

I currently have my own statistical consulting practice.

Great experience

Steve did a great job working with my daughter. She has special needs, and Steve seems to have accommodated them adeptly. My daughter enjoyed the experience and is much less nervous about her Statistics class. She looks forward to working with Steve in the future, and is very much relieved to have this resource available to get through what is proving to be a challenging class.
