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...

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

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.

Extremely helpful, I'll be back!

An extremely knowledgable and helpful tutor. He not only helped me learn to code (in RStudio), but he also taught me how to research my problems myself to be able to work more independently in the future. I'm sure I will have more sessions with him in the future!

Best Tutor Ever!

I am SO lucky to have found Steve. I am in graduate school and really struggling with my R course. Steve walked me through my homework and took breaks in between questions to explain the "why" behind each code. He also challenged me to think outside the box and come up with alternative ways to achieve the same answer. Its been a long time since I've been back at school and Steve made a very intimidating subject easy to digest and understand. I wish I found him sooner!

Very knowledgeable

Excellent feedback and suggestions on my STATA do-file, research project, and statistical methods. Will be using him regularly for feedback and sounding board for my research projects.

Steve is an amazing Tutor. Very patience and prepared. The best tutor I’ve worked with! I will certainly continue to use him and recommend him highly. You will be very happy working with him.

Great Teacher

Steve helped my daughter with Statistics, she took several lessons with asteve and we are very happy with his knowledge, punctuality and integrity. I will not hesitate to refer him to other friends.

Helpful and Patient

Steve was able to help prep me for my final in my Applied Linear Regression class. He took the time to explain in detail everything I had questions about. If I continue to struggle in my classes the next few semesters, I continue on planning to take lessons from him! Would recommend.

patient, good explainations

Quite a bit, we went over a little bit of everything. From basics to the details. Very good lesson though, without Steve I would be lost for my final exam

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!

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.
