Want to UNDERSTAND those stats tests in your class or for your project? Want help with your dissertation or thesis? If you are stuck learning SPSS or SAS, I can help.

I find research fun and make stats simple, working mostly with grad students who seek me out for thesis research +/or their classes.

Want to UNDERSTAND those stats tests in your class or for your project? Want help with your dissertation or thesis? If you are stuck learning SPSS or SAS, I can help.

I find research fun and make stats simple, working mostly with grad students who seek me out for thesis research +/or their classes. I apologize for it, but stats classes often are not taught well in understandable language. Social work or psychology students are common, but of course I am open to whatever kind of program you are in. Various students also have been in business, linguistics, auditory processing, and medicine. Statistics is pretty much the same regardless of the content area.

I’ve been tutoring and teaching since 1985 when I received my master's degree in biostatistics at the University of Texas School of Public Health. Then I received a master's in epidemiology from Columbia University in 1992. I've been doing this for a long time and I continue because I enjoy it. Explaining statistics in regular, lay language so that people can understand it and apply it is fun for me.

There is a ton of new terminology in statistics - fortunately I am bilingual and can guide you through what it all means. The funny looking symbols are just shorthand that tells you what to do with the numbers. I can show you that too.

Many classes also call on you to use SPSS or SAS to run analyses. Indeed, you’ll want to have the computer do most of the work instead of doing it by hand. But it’s one more thing to master. Learning SPSS with me is kind of like driver’s ed, where you are learning but there’s someone right there to show you how to do each step.

You may be overwhelmed with the whole concept of statistics, or simply want to more fully understand the material. In either case, contact me for a FREE phone consultation (once you are a registered student with WyzAnt). It doesn't cost a penny to talk to me and explore how we might work together to meet your needs.

SAS,

SAS

SAS is one of several software packages I use for statistical analysis. If you know another package, converting to SAS can be a bit challenging. It is like another language in how the logic is presented, so getting some help for learning it can be quite helpful. Once you know it, it's VERY POWERFUL. I love using SAS! I especially love the ability to use their MACRO language to shorten routine algorithms that you are going to do a lot of. This can be VERY HANDY.
SPSS

SPSS

I have been using and teaching SPSS for 30 years. We go step by step through each procedure. Once someone shows you how to do it, SPSS is demystified and actually becomes a handy tool.

ADHD

ADHD

I am an adult who is ADD and who has successfully navigated my way through life, including ACADEMIA. From clearing through clutter, to keeping up with appointments & assignments, to sustaining my self esteem when I could not always accomplish what I wanted to, I have learned methods for making life work. Besides all of that, I have learned to LOVE and to HARNESS those traits that originally held me back. Once the debilitating parts are addressed, the talents can be capitalized on. Like that we often have more good ideas in a day than others have in a month (sound familiar????). Or how we can see solutions that others miss. What if you could use your particular talents to your advantage?

Takes the mystery out of statistics

Finally I am once again excited about working on my dissertation. Thank you Karen for helping me understand my research and statistics. Your quick assessment of my learning style made a huge difference in relieving my frustration with my statistical work. I love the way you are able to explain the work in a language that I understand.

SPSS Statistics

This was the 6th week of a 8 week class. Karen had the full week to assist in understanding concepts that were difficult. She was diligent in appointments and follow through. She has a very good grasp of the subject and the week's result were good!

Best SPSS Tutor

Karen was able to help me understand SPSS in 1 hour. She is truly excellent. She simplifies everything and I'm able to perform the tasks. Excellent tutor.

Arlene, 3 lessons with Karen

Good teacher but...

She was good and understandable but she cares more about time and money we started 3:30 and the end was 5:00 she charged me $1.83 per minutes, I see that not fair because she spent 5 to 10 minutes to open her laptop to access WyzAnt and she could do it after the lesson or not charged me for those minutes plus she asked me some questions about different things and she showed me her necklace which brought by her brother .......anyways if she counted the minutes to gain some time then to charge more money for that she played well .. so my advice to who wants to take her next time focus on what you meet her for and watch the time minute by minute or she going to charge you more than you think...

Amazing teacher, patient, and an expert in the subject!

I was in serious danger of failing my semester of Categorical Data Analysis with SAS. I went to Karen hoping that she could somehow help me pass my class and make this particular statistics class understandable. Needless to say that after one session with her I had learned more in a few hours than I had learned the entire year. After a few more sessions my hope of passing actually started increasing and I am not lying and I never thought that I would say this, but I actually was having fun doing statistics. It's not a subject that comes easily to me but I have gained an actual working understanding of the subject matter and now the formulas have a reason for being and I have learned how to apply them. Yesterday I got the news that I passed my class and I know that I would not have been able to do it without Karen's tutoring!

Knowlegeable, patient, and very smart

Today Karen and I reviewed many SAS programming concepts and reviewed our work from our first tutoring session until I felt comfortable preparing a presentation for my dissertation committee. I can't recommend Karen highly enough. Great teaching style, extremely smart and knowledgeable about statistical concepts, and working expertise in SPSS and SAS.

Great!

Karen made a very challenging subject for me a lot more fun! I really appreciated our time together. :)

Best stats help for dissertation

Karen is a superb stats teacher. She is patient, enthusiastic, and supportive. She takes the time to explain each and every step and why. She has helped me clean my data in SPSS, replace missing data, and showed me how to effortlessly create syntax. She has also helped me to refine my research questions so I feel like I have a clearer understanding of what it is that I want to look at and what analysis is needed to answer them. She is easy to reach via phone/email and you can set up a virtual meeting or meet with her in-person. I highly recommend Karen—if you are looking for someone to teach you how to use SPSS, help you set up and interpret your data, she is the one!

Very good tutor

Patient, knowledgeable, helpful - covered what I needed, although I probably needed a more advanced skill-set to benefit from the level Karen teaches at.
