About Yamil

When classes are fast-paced and instructors are unable to attend to the needs of students, the ultimate goal of education -- which is to promote understanding -- is often lost. As a tutor, my primary goal is to correct that. I accomplish this by simplifying complex concepts through the use of examples and basic problems and explaining why the concepts we study are actually useful in the first place. I am willing to work with students of all backgrounds and skill levels. I graduated from Florida State University with two Bachelor's degrees in Political Science and Psychology, and a PhD in Political Science and Government from Stony Brook University. At Stony Brook, I taught a PhD level Statistics course, so Statistics is my strong suit. However, I am also knowledgeable about Psychology, Political Science, Government, and Computer Programming.

I am currently a tenure-track professor at a top 20 university in the Northeast.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

College Counseling

I am an assistant professor at a prestigious university in the Northeast. I can help you craft your application materials so that you put your best foot forward, and relay what makes you unique. I can help you edit your application and discuss which schools you have the best shot at getting into. In addition, I can advise you throughout the process as you receive acceptances (and rejections) from universities.

Political Science

I am now a tenure-track professor at a Top 20 university in the Northeast. I received my Ph. D. from Stony Brook University's Department of Political Science and double majored in both Political Science and Psychology at Florida State University. I have taught numerous political science courses.

Probability

I have taught PhD-level courses in statistics and probability theory.

Python

I received my Ph.D. from Stony Brook University, a school known for its focus on quantitative methods. I have been programming in Python for five years, building a computational model of immigration politics in the United States. The model takes in information about the Census and uses it to simulate interactions between immigrants and native-born residents. The code used to implement the model is rather complex, relying on iteration, list comprehensions, dictionaries and many of the language-specific components of Python. That is to say, I know the programming language pretty well and because I am not a computer science student by training, I can easily break down the concepts for people who are just starting to program while also being advanced enough to work with more intermediate students.

R

I have taught undergraduate and PhD-level courses on statistics, all of which have employed R as the primary programming language. I have over six years of experience working with the language and have developed scripts and packages. I am also up to date with what is going on in the R programming world and frequently attend meetups.

STATA

As a social scientist by training, I am routinely working with data. Throughout my coursework, I have had to use STATA frequently and know how to run various models as well as interpret results generated by those models. I have tutored students using STATA and have helped them solve various statistical/programming problems.

Statistics

I have taught a PhD-level course on statistics and am well versed in analyzing all kinds of data structures. I have a considerable amount of experience tutoring students of all backgrounds in statistics.

Great tutor!

Yamil has been an excellent help for me on multiple occasions. I am in a data analytics program and often need help understanding the more difficult concepts, and Yamil does a great job explaining what I need to understand in simple terms. He is very reliable and easy to get in touch with. I highly recommend anyone who needs help with math or computer science to email Yamil!
