Bio

I have over 10 years' combined experience in teaching high school, college, graduates and postgraduate students in research methodology skills. These skills vary from healthcare research, social sciences, epidemiology and clinical research. I teach various levels; from basic/introductory statistics, biostatistics, statistical software packages to advanced methods such as categorical data analysis, survival analysis, hierarchical modeling and advanced regression techniques.

I have over 10 years' combined experience in teaching high school, college, graduates and postgraduate students in research methodology skills. These skills vary from healthcare research, social sciences, epidemiology and clinical research. I teach various levels; from basic/introductory statistics, biostatistics, statistical software packages to advanced methods such as categorical data analysis, survival analysis, hierarchical modeling and advanced regression techniques. I hold a master's degree in biostatistics and have worked on several US-government funded clinical research projects at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City.

However, my all time passion is teaching. My satisfaction comes from that AHA! moment when a student finally gets a concept or skill. Over the years, I have realized there is a difference between being a subject matter expert and being able to effectively pass on that knowledge to others. Therefore teaching is not for everyone. For me it is something that I both love and am good at. As a result, my students have excelled in the past.

Statistics and biostatistics are subjects that need a strong understanding of its basic tenets and theorems simply because it builds up as you progress. I have a decade of teaching introductory and advanced statistics. As a result of, I am quite aware of the various blind spots that usually throw off students. My approach is to figure out the student's abilities and concepts they struggle with first and learn about the best way to illustrate or teach them. In statistics, there isn't much of memorization compared to application. I teach my students how to apply different tools to tackle problems in different situations. In other words, I offer what the student needs at the right time.

In addition, I explain why specific methods may be chosen over others. It starts off from the very simple; e.g., why choose a t-test instead of ANOVA, or why the Wald test instead of the likelihood ratio test or like why the Bonferonni instead of Turkeys. Students need to be taught how to make the right decisions in order to apply concepts and solve problems effectively. Lastly, I have a repository of problemsand solutions I have used over the years. Hence I use these extensively for the student's practice. Just like math, the student will do well with practice. It is not so much about the final answer, than the process to get to the final answer. If the process is correct, the answer will almost always be correct.

Software skills are increasingly becoming in demand in today's economy. Thank God you don't have to be a developer to master and understand software packages. Over the years, I have taught students how to use and optimize software packages in their research. I teach SAS, R, SPSS from scratch to expert level within a reasonable amount of time. Although there are a lot of online courses on these, there is no substitute for the one-on-one tailored experience. This is the surest way to master and realistically gain a new and useful skill.

Subjects

Computer

GIS,

GIS

Have worked multiple projects that have used ArcGIS to map spatial relationships. I received formal training in ArcGIS at Columbia University 6 years ago. And since then I have tutored and mentored students and colleagues who rely on this software.
SAS,

SAS

I am SAS certified and have used this program for several years now. I have advised doctoral students and faculty members on how best to easily and efficiently operationalize their data using SAS.
SPSS,

SPSS

I have been tutoring students in SPSS, R, SAS for many years now. Each day I use these software packages in my own research projects as well as in graduate level courses I coteach. My approach is usually customized to the students needs; in other words I provide the students with simplified tools, skills and procedures they need to master the software for life. More so, within a short period.
STATA

STATA

I have used STATA for several years now and have tutored and advised master's students, PhD candidates and faculty conducting NIH funded projects. I have provided statistical consulting and published in high impact journals.

Statistics

Statistics

I have tutored undergarduate and graduate level stastistics and biostatistics for 8 years. Most of my students have found my one-on-one tailored approach to be very helpful in terms of their understanding of concepts. I can teach anything from basic classical statistical approach to more advanced regression and hierachical modelling techniques. Along with the statistical knowledge, I also teach use of statistical packages such as SAS, SPSS and R.

Knowledgeable!!!

Taught me the beginning staging in Biostatics and had a lot of patience with me. Instead of going to what I did not understand he wanted to see my syllabus, so he can get and idea on what I should know. He explained everything thoroughly and gave me a breakdown which was very helpful, because I was able to understand it better. I have scheduled my next appointment. Definitely recommend Him!
