Teaching and tutoring are things I enjoy. At MSU, I received the University Alumni award for graduate teaching, as well as several College of Business awards for teaching and have taught undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral classes. I've also taught at University of Texas and University of Alabama, before coming to MSU.
I've taught undergraduate business statistics and have been invited to contribute to several textbooks. The second course emphasizes use of Microsoft Excel in solutions. I also teach an MBA course in statistics that uses Excel. The doctoral business statistics classes I teach use SPSS.
For stats majors, I have a PhD in Statistics and specialized in Linear Algebra and multivariate statistics for most of my academic research. I also have a PhD in finance and an MBA with concentration in finance. Teaching and tutoring are things I enjoy.

We worked on data analysis using SPSS. He helped make the process manageable. He also made notes during our session as a guide.
Joe is a very patient tutor who has a great understanding of statistics and research design. Also, he is very easy to get in contact with and responds to emails and phone calls promptly. Easy to talk to and understand during tutorials, I would highly recommend Joe to anyone needing help in statistics.
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.
I have a PhD in Statistics, with doctoral level courses in linear algebra (4.0 GPA), and most of my academic research has involved multivariate statistics. I would be happy to share copies of my academic credentials and transcripts upon request.
Before retirement I taught MBA courses in statistics and decision science using Excel as the computational software. In addition, I wrote Excel VBA macros to give students (and myself) additional functionality not present in native Excel, such as highlighting outliers in data and adding a footer with your name with a single click. Also taught how to create effective exhibits using charts and pivot tables, as well as data tables and advanced query.
Before retirement, I taught both quantitative methods courses for college of business Ph.D. students, teaching how to use SPSS in both courses. I have a Ph.D. degree in statistics and teaching evaluations for Ph.D. courses consistently 5 out of 5, with several awards from the college and university for graduate level teaching.
Master's degree and PhD degree in statistics (and also in Finance). Taught business statistics at the undergraduate, master's, and doctoral levels at Mississippi State University for 18 years. I previously taught engineering statistics at the University of Alabama and finance at the same university. I received the university-wide alumni award for recognition of teaching excellence as well as multiple awards from the College of Business.
