About Kidane

Relevant background include a PhD in Biostatistics, an MSc in Statistics, extensive experience as a teaching assistant for statistics and biostatistics classes, and research experience as a biostatistician. Here at Wyzant, I have assisted graduate students with their statistics (biostatistics) classes and projects, PhD students with the statistics aspects of their dissertation research, and researchers with their projects. Courses that I worked with tutees include all kinds of introduction to biostatistics (statistics) courses, predictive analytics courses, SAS programming, R programming, probability, mathematical statistics, and time-series analysis.

I have a flexible availability and I hope to hear from you so that I can assist with your learning needs.

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.

Biostatistics

I have an MSc in Statistics from Washington State University and a PhD in Biostatistics from University of Pittsburgh. I have been a teaching assistant for undergraduate level classes in statistics and graduate level (including PhD level) in biostatistics. I can assist any student in any statistics or biostatistics-related class.

Probability

As part of my training in statistics and biostatistics, I have taken probability courses ranging from the very basic to measure-theoretic probability courses.

R

I am proficient in R. My R knowledge primarily comes from R programming taught in some of my stat courses in graduate study (e.g. computation statistics, genomics), having used R for my dissertation research that included extensive simulations and also personal interest. I was also twice a teaching assistant for an advanced R programming class for graduate students in biostatistics. I regularly use R for work. Here at Wyzant, I have tutored several students stats courses using R.

SAS

I have used SAS for work and for school for over 8 years. Work using SAS included where I was employed as a SAS programmer. I have served as a teaching assistant for SAS programming course at the University of Pittsburgh.

SPSS

I have more than 10 years of SPSS experience. I have used SPSS as a student, a teaching assistant and tutor for SPSS-based stats classes, and as a statistician for work.

STATA

Some of my graduate level courses in biostatistics were taught using STATA. Actually, half of my PhD qualifying exam (the applied part of the exam) involved 6 hours of performing data analyses using STATA. Here at Wyzant, I have helped several students with their stats classes using STATA.

Statistics

I have a PhD in Biostatistics and an Msc in Statistics. I have been a teaching assistant for many undergraduate and graduate statistics classes. Courses I have TA-ed include Elementary Statistics, Probability and Statistics for Engineers, Statistical Methods, Introduction to Biostatistics, Mathematical statistics, Applied Linear Models, Theory of Linear Models, Longitudinal Modeling, Logistic Regression, Applied Mixed Models, Advanced Statistical Inference, Multivariate Analysis, SAS Programming, Advanced R programming.
