I have taught a range of undergraduate courses including: Introduction to U.S. government (Fall 2017), and Quantitative Research in Political Science (Spring 2018). The latter course introduces statistics, data science, and programming in R for social science research.

The latter course introduces statistics, data science, and programming in R for social science research.

I also have extensive experience in test prep and college admissions. I have taught SAT and GRE courses (all sections) for The Princeton Review for over 6 years. I was also graduate school admissions advisor for three years at a top 5 public university.

With me you will get expert tutoring from someone who not only knows the material in-and-out, but also enjoys (and is skilled in) teaching.

Knowledgeable and patient

We went through a homework assignment in R. We covered the subset() and tapply() functions, barplot arguments, compared means for different vectors, and talked about the difference between vectors and variables. Serge is a great teacher!

Knowledgeable and wants to help.

I am new to R coding and analysis and had difficulty on one of the assignments. Serge looked at my code and made recommendations to assist me. My course is a Data Science class that jumped into R on day 1. He has been extremely helpful in getting me up to speed and I am much more comfortable with it now.
