Demystifying: Statistics, Data Analytics, and Economics
I love teaching and look forward to sharing and promoting the fascination of Economics and Statistics with you. Every student is unique, and I have enjoyed spending hundreds of hours discussing Economics and Statistics with students around the world. I don't use a lot of jargon - I like to simplify the complex by improving clarity and conciseness. Over time, you will build a sense of intuition, on best practices to use when approaching problems. I adapt my teaching style to a student's unique...
I love teaching and look forward to sharing and promoting the fascination of Economics and Statistics with you. Every student is unique, and I have enjoyed spending hundreds of hours discussing Economics and Statistics with students around the world. I don't use a lot of jargon - I like to simplify the complex by improving clarity and conciseness. Over time, you will build a sense of intuition, on best practices to use when approaching problems. I adapt my teaching style to a student's unique needs and goals. This helps build confidence in the material - - we are in this together.
I don't come from a family filled with accolades and degrees. I am a first-generation college graduate and had to work very hard to get to where I am. My hard work paid off and got me a B.S. in Economics with minors in Marketing and Business Analytics from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I have gone on to pursue my Master's in Business Data Analytics at West Virginia University.
Spending my post-grad career first as a Stock Trader at a Fortune 500 company and then as a Marketing Analyst at a tech start-up helped hone my communication skills. What makes you stand out is not your ability to analyze data. It is the ability to look at multiple perspectives and build a narrative around your findings that leads to a functional solution. This is what has led me to start my own company where I combine my love of collaboration, economics, and statistics. I coach businesses on how to take control of their data and begin writing that narrative that will amplify the narrative behind the numbers, and increase productivity.
Entities I've worked with include:
The House Outdoor
The Combined Federal Campaign and USDA
and I've coached staff at universities on how to analyze clinical research.
-I can assist you with Excel, R, SPSS, and Tableau projects.

James is such a patient and knowledgeable tutor! I really enjoyed my first session with him and I can't wait to continue learning more from him throughout the semester and see how far I've come with my grade! I have always had trouble with Math and when I first started my sessions with Wyzant Tutoring it didn't go as I expected which is why I'm so grateful that James is compatible with my learning level. I would highly recommend James to any student!Maha, 17 lessons with James
James is an amazing fun caring teacher and really helped me not only understand the questions but helped me relate the information to really world problems and because of him I did great on my first Econ exam. Thank youBella, 1 lesson with James
Knowledgeable, Patient and Professional
James and I worked on my Statistics homework together in which I started to have an understanding of it. Statistics is new material for me and I have been very discouraged but working on the homework together gave me some confidence.Buttons, 2 lessons with James

Stats Tutor - Highly recommend
James was very dependable, thorough and patient tutor. He brought my son's college Stats grade from a D to a solid B. This was a huge accomplishment and James worked with my son diligently to ensure that he understood the material and greatly improved his Stats grade. We will definitely continue to work with James and highly recommend him.Bridget, 16 lessons with James
This was the funnest lesson I have ever had. Not only that, but James is also very knowledgeable on my topic and has lots of patience. I can very much recommend this tutor and have my next lessons booked already.Annette, 10 lessons with James
OMG! James is a FANTASTIC tutor! He was very engaging and provided me with work outside of class and was extremely open to my questions throughout the process. He would answer my questions and listened when I just was not getting the concepts. He is very supportive and patient, which is extremely important when working with a tutor. He gets my WAY 2 GO Award. Again, FANTASTIC and SUPPORTIVE. i would recommend him today, tomorrow, and next year.Jacquie, 6 lessons with James
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
I was really struggling to understand things in my Macroeconomics course. But James made things simple and broke the concepts down in a manner that made it easier for me to grasp. Right from our first meeting, we developed a sense of trust. He showed great patience, commitment, flexibility, and enthusiasm. As badly as I needed to pass the course he seemed to have just as much eagerness. No doubt, it's a great feeling to know that you have someone in your corner other than yourself who has a personal stake or vested interest in your success and supports your efforts every step of the way. In fact, one of the qualities I admired most about James is that he is very approachable and didn't make me feel as though I was stupid at times when I had questions or when he had to explain things more than once. I would definitely recommend James as a tutor to anyone needing help. The bottom line is he provides quality service! And when it comes to the things to look for in a tutor he checks all the boxes!Donnell , 10 lessons with James
