About Robert

I am an alumnus of the Master of Science in Economics degree program at The University of Texas at Dallas, which is where I also have received my Bachelor of Science in Economics degree. My graduate concentration was applied econometrics.

My tutoring subjects are economics (Principles and Intermediate), undergraduate and first-year master's econometrics, research writing and proofreading, basic-to-intermediate Stata, basic SPSS, and Microsoft applications in Excel and Word. I provide the following services:

1. Assist with understanding problem sets, as well as review concepts;

2. Proofread, critique, and give guidance on research papers and projects, including explanations on how to interpret and diagnose statistical results (if applicable); and

3. Teach Stata and SPSS/PSPP software, as well as troubleshoot coding problems.

My hope is that you not only do well in your course, but that you build confidence and a love of learning!

In the seven econometrics and statistics courses I have taken and passed exceptionally, I saw many of my classmates struggle with interpreting a regression model or putting econometric axioms into layman terms. Because the professors were often busy with their research and administrative duties, some of these same classmates came to me for help. By the end of our meetings, they have recognized and corrected their mistakes, being able to think like an applied statistician or econometrician. If you also struggle with statistical/econometric concepts, I can translate the complex mathematical language into layman terms--and translate it back to help you understand the language!

My academic career demanded a lot of research papers from me. All of my economics courses beyond Principles and well into my M.S. economics program involve lengthy paper assignments, so I have quite a bit of experience with writing and proofreading--including helping my classmates with their work! My course papers have been published online and are available upon request.

Being experienced in Stata and SPSS/PSPP, I can guide you on how to use the software and help you troubleshoot issues you may have, such as correcting syntax errors, interpreting tables, managing data, and simple programming through Stata's do-files and SPSS's batch mode processing option.

I can also help you with Microsoft Excel and Word applications. For Excel, I can review your spreadsheets for errors (e.g. misspellings, formatting, etc.) and suggest techniques such as formulas to streamline your project. Similarly for Word, I can aid you in formatting your papers and reports so that they meet the guidelines of your superior. In general, I provide basic proofreading and troubleshooting for these Microsoft products.

Please see my schedule availability for lessons. I am able to travel within the Collin County, TX Area either to your location or a quiet, public place of your preference, whichever is more comfortable for you. I am also available for online tutoring.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! I look forward to helping you!

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.

Econometrics

I have received an average grade of A across all my undergraduate and graduate statistics/econometrics courses. These courses have covered a variety of modeling techniques, such as categorical data analysis and time series. I have written several papers using these econometric methods.

Economics

I have undergraduate and graduate degrees in economics from The University of Texas at Dallas. I have consistently received overall grades of A's and A-'s in my major courses.

Microsoft Excel

I have worked in the 401(k) administration industry from 2007 to 2015, using Excel as the primary reporting and data management tool. Additionally, I have used Excel to modify data, such as averaging variables and transposing rows/columns. Overall, I have the ability to tutor in Excel on the basis that I have experienced many problems that students and practitioners face today; thus, I can pass on my knowledge to them so that they may improve their Excel abilities.

Microsoft Word

I have worked in the 401(k) administration industry from 2007 to 2015, using Microsoft Word as the primary word processor. Additionally, I have used Word for my research papers, which can be viewed upon request.
