About Stephen


Bio

I am a PhD economist with 19 years of University-level teaching experience. I have taught economics, statistics, and professional writing at Harvard (4 years, as graduate student), Duke (2 years, in firstyear writing program), and SUNY Albany (13 years, in public policy).

I am a PhD economist with 19 years of University-level teaching experience. I have taught economics, statistics, and professional writing at Harvard (4 years, as graduate student), Duke (2 years, in firstyear writing program), and SUNY Albany (13 years, in public policy).

Teaching in an MPA program means working with students who haven't touched math since high school and really hoped they'd never see math again, and...oops, now they're taking microeconomics or statistics with me. I have over a decade's experience helping students terrified of math succeed at the college or masters level, and I can help you too. I have also been teaching a Stata workshop for 19 years, and have presented at national conferences on how to teach statistics-based writing.

I have directly taught econometrics at the college and masters level, and the economics I teach relies on algebra and precalculus. I have been helping students solve systems of equations for a decade.

I would be happy to provide University-level help in economics, statistics, econometrics, algebra, Stata, or college/professional writing.

Econometrics

Econometrics is what I do. I have a PhD in economics (Harvard, specialties in health policy and behavioral economics) and have taught algebra-based econometrics-style statistics at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral level. I have particular expertise in teaching Stata.
Microeconomics

Microeconomics

I have a PhD in economics from Harvard (2007) and have been teaching economics at Harvard (as a graduate student), at Duke (as a fellow in writing across the disciplines), and at SUNY Albany (as a faculty member in public policy). I mostly teach economics for MPA students, which means working with a broader range of math backgrounds than you'd see in a typical economics program. My own classes emphasize the traditional material, plus economic justice and inequality, asymmetric information, and behavioral economics.

STATA

STATA

I remember in 2002, when I was a teaching assistant in Harvard's econometrics course, I was passing out cookies in the dining hall at midnight when I came across a group of students from my class, desperately stymied on their metrics homework. I pulled them into the computer lab for an impromptu Stata workshop, which I then offered for 4 years. At SUNY Albany, I have been teaching our doctoral intro Stata workshop (RPAD 688) for the last 8 years.

Statistics

I have a PhD in economics (Harvard, 2007), which for me largely means being a professional statistician. I have been teaching statistics at Harvard (as a graduate student for 2 years) and at SUNY Albany (as a faculty member in public administration for 13 years). At SUNY, I have taught undergraduate statistics with Excel, Masters statistics with Stata, doctoral statistics with Stata, and advanced doctoral statistics with Stata. I have also supervised several statistics-based dissertations.

Knowledgable and prepared!

Working with Stephen has been great - he really goes the extra mile by preparing materials and looking over my problem sets before our lesson, which I super appreciate. I feel like our time is productive and helpful - he knows his stuff, especially with STATA. He has a deep understanding of the material, and he was able to teach me at the graduate level in an easy to understand way. I really enjoyed working with him, and I recommend him to anyone who is considering him!

Very Helpful

Was stuck on some concepts for my econometrics problem set and Stephen cleared them up for me and allowed me to work through the problem set. He even helped out with some tips on Stata!

Excellent

Stephen was patient and good at explaining a difficult subject (microeconomics). He was on time, communicative and timely when messaging. The technology worked flawlessly, too.

Knowledgeable, helpful and patient.

Professor Stephen W is patient and kind. I learn a whole lot every time we meet. I get lost a lot especially in computations but whenever we met, his explanations become really helpful. I would learn how to work on problems on my own even after doing just one sample problem. Most times, he goes overboard to make you understand without complaints or extra charges. Truly thankful for his impact and knowledge.
