About Michael


Bio

I have extensive tutoring and teaching experience in math, statistics, data science, and psychology. I am a current professor of statistics at both the undergraduate and graduate level. I have over 10 years experience of tutoring and teaching. My first job was as a math tutor for middle school and high school students (e.g., Algebra, Geometry, ACT/SAT prep). Then, during my PhD, post-doctoral, and professor positions, I have taught a variety of college courses (e.g., Statistics, Research...

I have extensive tutoring and teaching experience in math, statistics, data science, and psychology. I am a current professor of statistics at both the undergraduate and graduate level. I have over 10 years experience of tutoring and teaching. My first job was as a math tutor for middle school and high school students (e.g., Algebra, Geometry, ACT/SAT prep). Then, during my PhD, post-doctoral, and professor positions, I have taught a variety of college courses (e.g., Statistics, Research Methods, many different Psychology courses).

Learning is a collaborative process, so my favorite aspect about tutoring is helping students uncover knowledge or skills that they did not know they possessed or could achieve. This is especially the case when it comes to math and statistics, both of which can be intimidating for students at times. Making students realize their true potential when it comes to these and related subjects is what I love most about tutoring.

I have used statistics on a daily basis for the past 10 years. This includes my statistical training during graduate school; I earned a certificate in Advanced Quantitative Methods in addition to my PhD. By then conducting research throughout my graduate and post-doctoral careers, I have become extremely familiar with a wide range of statistical analyses and data science techniques. It has also lead me to become proficient in a variety of statistical software packages and programs (e.g., SPSS, Excel, R, Stata). Whether you need help in a college- or graduate-level statistics course or if you have a data science project you need assistance with, I look forward to using my extensive statistics training and experience in helping you achieve your highest goals.

Additionally, I received my Masters and PhD in Psychology with a focus on Cognitive/Experimental Psychology. However, I have familiarity with all areas of the discipline, including social psychology, developmental psychology, quantitative and research methods, and neuroscience. Whether it is a high school, college, or graduate-level psychology course you are taking, I would have the training to tutor and assist you in any way necessary.

Thanks for your interest in my tutoring services! If you have any questions or want to inquire more about my training or tutoring philosophy, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be more than happy to assist you in any way I can!

Research Design Proposal and statistics

Michael has such a thorough understanding of the end to end process of Research Design. Not only is he an expert in statistics but Michael can talk about all aspect of an approach. Michael was able to address questions related to overall planning, design, theory, sampling, causality as well as internal an external validity. What I appreciate most about Michael is his friendly style and personal approach. Never change, Michael!

Joy, 7 lessons with Michael

Knowledgeable & personable!

As a tutor of English, I have discerning tastes in tutors and a critical eye. Michael is an outstanding tutor! He is kind, patient, and extremely knowledgeable! I highly recommend him for anyone like me who has difficulty grasping statistics concepts!

Mark, 6 lessons with Michael

Personable, knowledgable and professional

Help with SPSS intricacies and test interpretation is invaluable. I would recommend to make an appointment, completing as much as you possibly can on your own and Michael will help you identify where the gaps in your understanding are.

Denise, 3 lessons with Michael

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Michael is an extremely kind, patient and well learned instructor. He made me feel very comfortable in "meeting me where I was at" in our session. He was most encouraging and provided strategies for organizing my saved work as well as the specific rules for data entry and retrieval in SPSS. He always stressed the underlying conceptual aspects pertaining to the data as well. I am very grateful to have met him.

Clare , 14 lessons with Michael

Knowledgeable, explains it well!

Michael has helped me several times with difficult PhD level statistics courses. I'd be lost without him! He is always prompt, has great availability and has helped me became more adept at SPSS.

Juliana, 13 lessons with Michael

Awesome SPSS Tutor!

I was struggling to understand my stat and SPSS assignments, and Michael explained everything really clearly and quickly. He is a wiz with SPSS and took me through the set up and analysis like a champ. Will definitely be working with him again. Thank you, Michael!

Grayce, 2 lessons with Michael

Very knowledgeable!

Was able to explain complex information in simple terms, which made it quick to understand. The basis of the lesson was primarily theoretical and laying the foundation for the heavy lifting analysis that needs to be done.

Maribel, 4 lessons with Michael

Super helpful tutor

Michael helped me complete a portion of my thesis using SPSS. He is so knowledgeable and helpful. He even offered to answer some questions and concerns offline. Definitely recommend!

Michael was right to the point! I wish I knew about this website earlier. Especially when I took the stats class.

Hayet, 1 lesson with Michael

Gifted and Talented Tutor

Michael is a gifted and talented tutor. He was patient with me not only in regards to learning statistics but also with my time restraints and scheduling considerations. I have already recommended him to my fellow classmates! Thanks again, Micheal, I did very well on the test!! I was overly prepared thanks to you.
