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.

ACT Science

I have an undergraduate degree in Geology from Princeton and obtained a National Science Foundation fellowship for my graduate studies. I'm a "science geek" who knows how to communicate. I've successfully helped students prepare for the science portion of the ACT.

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.

MATLAB

I'm a statistician adept at using MATLAB. I've been successfully tutoring students in MATLAB over the past several months.

R

I used R exclusively during my graduate program in Statistics at the University of Minnesota. My master's paper involved writing R programs to compare various classification methods. I regularly use R along with Stata in my consulting business.

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 an adjunct faculty member. I also recently worked as a statistician at Apple in California. I currently have my own statistical consulting practice.

Knowledgeable and Professional

Steve has been tutoring me in Biostatistics and is very knowledgeable in this subject matter. I have had many sessions with him over the past 30 days and have learned a lot from him. I owe him many thanks and kudos for helping me pass my first two stats exam. I am truly grateful for his expertise and guidance!
