R,

R

I am proficient in R, and use R regularly for work. Learned R through R-intensive grad level stats classes (for example, computation stats), from having served twice as a teaching assistant for a graduate level advanced R programming class, from having used R for my dissertation research (for extensive data management, monte carlo simulations, optimizations, and data analyses), and also due to personal interest. Here at Wyzant, I have tutored tonnes of students R-intensive stats, data science, data visualization, predictive analytics, machine learning and data mining courses, and also pure R programming courses.
SAS,

SAS

I have used SAS for school, and work as a SAS programmer and biostatistician. In graduate school, I was a teaching assistant for a graduate level SAS programming course and SAS-intensive statistics and biostatistics courses. I am very proficient with SAS data step, proc step and macro programming.

Reviews

Great tutor

I needed a review of some key topics for an exam, and Kidane really helped me understand the core ideas of the concepts. He provided excellent explanations on several topics for my graduate course in probability theory, such as distributions of multiple random variables, joint and conditional distributions, moment generating functions, convolutions, and the delta method. Would recommend.

Nicole, 1 lesson with Kidane

Knowledgeable and patient tutor with clear expertise

Kidane's already helped me develop a more thorough understanding and intuition of the probability theory concepts at hand, and in what ways they can be applied. I'm looking forward to working with him and recommend such a clear expert.

Emil, 6 lessons with Kidane

Absolutely Knowledable and so helpfuld

Kidane helped me with a fixed-effects regression model on STATA, and alternative ways to test regression assumptions. My experience with him is positive he covered all the questions I have and provided references to go back to. Yes, I would recommend him for anyone who needs help with statistics.

Layla, 2 lessons with Kidane

Knowledgable and patient.

Very thorough and knows econometrics very well. Helped to explain various functions In R.

Chuck, 1 lesson with Kidane

Detailed, Responsive & Personable

Kidane is first of all kind and personable. Since we've worked together, he's always helped me look at important statistical theory for any analysis which I've had to clarify. He's detail oriented, which is a trait one can learn from and apply to future analysis. I would highly recommend him.

Carl, 10 lessons with Kidane

Excellent tutor!

Helped me work through and truly understand an entire assignment in R that I was dreading! Looking forward to working with him for the rest of the course. Very smart and patient.

Bethany, 16 lessons with Kidane

Experienced Instructor

Kidane provided assistance with my R project, quickly diagnosing the issue that I was having and provide a solution without any extraneous info. Would recommend him.

Rohit, 1 lesson with Kidane

excellent tutor!

Kidane really helped me understand convergence in probability and convergence in distributions. He was very patient and explained things very well. I will definitely be scheduling another session with Kidane soon.

Kelley, 10 lessons with Kidane

Knowledgeable tutor!

Kidane helped me understand how to use Rstudio to complete my assignment. I would definitely use him again. He gave me a review of the basics and a better understanding of what I needed to do which was extremely helpful.

Juan, 1 lesson with Kidane

Very Helpful

Have worked with Kidane 4 times for my statistical theory class. Has helped tremendously. He knows what questions to ask you and how to the explain tougher part of material. Very knowledgeable and passes that on which is very important. Took my exam yesterday and am very confident I did well.
