About Emery

I have been a tutor since 2013, mostly teaching at undergraduate level. Since then, I have assisted more than 200 students achieve their potential, progressively developing a good reputation of the being one of the best tutors at the University of the Western Cape in Cape Town and Monash University in Johannesburg.

I have a Master's of Science in Biostatistics. I have worked more than a year as a Biostatistician consultant at the Research Office.

I have also tutored recently (from 2014 - 2015) at postgraduate level, acting as a Biostatistician Consultant at the Research Office of the Faculty of Health Sciences at Wits University in South Africa. I helped privately more than 100 junior and senior researchers analyzing their data using different statistical packages including SPSS, Stata and Statistica. My tutorials have always been rated "outstanding," which makes me become the main reference in terms of statistical analysis of research data.

I grew up in the Democratic Republic of Congo and attended the main University of the country (University of Kinshasa) where I graduated with distinction in Economics. Thereafter, I went to South Africa for further postgraduate studies. I first attended Special English for Academic Purpose at Stellenbosch University, completing the Advanced Level.

Secondly, I attended the University of the Western Cape for a Bridging program in Economics, where I passed with an A and was the Laureate. Finally I attended the University of the Witwatersrand of Johannesburg for a Master's degree in Epidemiology and Biostatistics with a specific focus on Biostatistics. I graduated as the laureate for the 2015 cohort.

My aim as a tutor is to create and deepen self-confidence in my students so that they can use French confidently, as a second language. For those interested in using SPSS, my aim is to create a genuine understanding of the software so that they can use it with confidence as well.

My tutoring approach varies constantly depending on the student's needs, the topic and learning style. I first take the student through an assessment exercise, which determines his/her needs and gaps. Thereafter, I encourage the student to think through using real-world examples where possible. For instance, for French learners exercises will includes grammar rules, pronunciation, speeches, passive and active voices whereas for Biostatistics or SPSS exercices topics include coding, data management, data analysis and understanding of different menus of the software. To keep track of what we have discussed, a take home exercise will always be given and feedback will be provided 24 hrs after submission with more details.

I am available for tutoring everyday from 9 am - 9 pm, except Sundays. My charges vary from $30 for online session and $60 for an in-person session. For students who want to receive a course package, materials will be provided electronically for free.

I look forward to hearing from you and take you through this exciting experience.

Very knowledgeable, patient, and overall fantastic! — Emery helped me with STATA commands running simple and multiple logistic models and explaining concepts. He was very helpful in explaining concepts and the reasonings for how data should be carried out. In addition, Emery was able to explain the data in a context which I can understand and how it should be presented! He made statistics very easy to comprehend! Highly recommended! ...
