Hello. My name is Adam Witham, and I am a university economics professor. I have tutored for universities and privately since 2015. I hold a B.A. in Mathematical Economics and Applied Mathematics, M.A. in Economics, and my Ph.D. in Economics.

In 2020, I was identified as a Top 10% tutor with Wyzant. I have background in econometric testing and programming with Stata, R, and EViews. I primarily tutor econometrics, microeconomics, macroeconomics, and applied economic fields; however, I also can tutor courses in statistics, mathematics, and writing.

I enjoy helping students discover how economics applies to the world around them. I look for new ways to progress through material with students in a method that best works for them. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out, and I look forward to working with you!

STATA

I have experience with teaching Stata to students in econometrics and statistics. I have a Ph.D. in economics, and I use Stata extensively in research projects. In Stata, we can review data analysis, how to check for errors like serial correlation and heteroscedasticity, hypothesis testing, and regression analysis. We can also look at how to interpret Stata results economically.

Writing

At Hampden-Sydney College, I took coursework in rhetoric and passed the Rhetoric Proficiency Exam (RPE) to graduate. This well-known requirement at the college involves students taking a several-hour written exam. An individual must evaluate a claim, provide supporting or opposing evidence, and formulate a logical argument. The faculty readers must unanimously decide whether a student passes the exam. To further my experience in writing, I have published in an academic journal and regularly write papers for economics research.

Knowledgeable and helpful

Adam helped with the AP exam review online. He was very knowledgeable and clearly explained questions for the test. He helped build confidence and I would recommend him to others.

Jay, 4 lessons with Adam

Brilliant.

Adam is absolutely the most refreshing person to work with. He has this amazing ability to sense that you are completely lost without you having to say a thing. He writes everything down...the step by step process, helpful notes...he labels everything and it is crystal clear while your in session and reviewing the work he sends you post session. He really is the most patient person. I asked him to explain how to deal with exponents to me like an 8th grader even though I’m in a double masters program and he didn’t even blink and eye. If you think his price is steep well I can assure you I learned more from him in 1 hour than half a semester in my economics class. There are many ways to “skin” some problems however he teaches you the easiest way to understand -it’s usually the quickest but not always because sometimes the best path takes longer but gives you the tools and the foundation needed to solve more problems. I could go on and on but TAKE HIM. He’s worth it.

I was skeptical at first. However I quickly learned in my first session he is one of the best. Definitely recommend to anyone trying to improve their academic performance.

Lesson on Monopolies : Very patient and helpful with any questions!

I learned about monopolies vs perfect competition. Adam is very patient and explains things in real world terms with real life examples that make the topic easier to understand.

Highly Recommend Adam for Econometrics I and Intermediate Microeconomic Theory

Adam has been the best tutor I found on Wyzant. He can walk me through a problem set from start to finish in record time and allow me to understand the topics right after he explains. He is knowledgable in both econometrics and intermediate microeconomic theory, and is in charge of money & banking at Clemson University. Online lessons with Adam are extremely helpful and we use our time well. I am 95% confident that I will pass econometrics thanks to Adam!

Katie, 9 lessons with Adam

Extremely helpful

Adam helped me to get organized for a college-level economics final. He came to our meeting fully prepared and helped me to really outline everything I needed to do. I am much more confident about my final following our tutoring session!
