About Michael


Bio

Hi, I’m Michael! I earned my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, specializing in developing new statistical methods. During my 7 years in the PhD program, I taught univariate and multivariate statistics, coding in R, research design, and scientific writing. I created homework assignments, quizzes, and practice exams, led biweekly review sessions for 1-15 students, and helped students design and carry out research projects.

What makes me stand out as a tutor? Well, stats classes are heavy on...

Hi, I’m Michael! I earned my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, specializing in developing new statistical methods. During my 7 years in the PhD program, I taught univariate and multivariate statistics, coding in R, research design, and scientific writing. I created homework assignments, quizzes, and practice exams, led biweekly review sessions for 1-15 students, and helped students design and carry out research projects.

What makes me stand out as a tutor? Well, stats classes are heavy on equations because an equation is like a recipe to analyze data. But whereas most instructors expect you to memorize when to use a certain recipe, I will help you learn how to cook!

So we’ll start from what you know. Then, in order to get to what you want to learn, I’ll help you connect to the big picture of what’s going on. And finally, we’ll come in with the details and practice problems.

My experience as an educator is informed by psychology and neuroscience research on optimal learning strategies, and the beaming responses I’ve received from my students helped me recognize my love and talent for tutoring.

My goal is not only to help you get a good grade, but also to help you really connect with the material so that you can use it in real life!!

During my PhD program, I taught in courses about statistical analysis in R. As part of my dissertation, I developed new statistical methods, and in order to prove that they work, I built custom software packages in R. So, I have intimate experience working in R, teaching students in R, learning to use new functions, and troubleshooting broken code.

Knowledgeable, kind, patient and be sometimes funny tutor

Michael is working with me on statistics. He breaks down the information so I really "get it" and he provides real-life examples. I'm lucky that I found him here. Helping me to understand the statistics language in a visual way really helps me.

Alexandra, 2 lessons with Michael

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Michael allows the student to process the information at his/her own speed and understanding. He does a great job explaining the various statistical processes and lingo in a way that they make sense and can be applied to the current course work. Michael is flexible with his schedule and works to accommodate the student.

Ute, 6 lessons with Michael

Knowledgeable and patient

Michael and I planned our attack on statistics. We went over covariance, correlation, variance, standard deviation and regression. Michael is very intelligent and I am looking forward to working with him again. We also got into p-values, t-value, alpha, null hypothesis, normalization and standardization.

Dustin, 6 lessons with Michael

Super helpful, patient, and kind

Michael was very patient and receptive to my needs as a student. He helped provide me with various resources to understand the material. I feel like I have a better understanding of multicollinearity and regressions.

Ashley, 1 lesson with Michael

Lots of great analogies

Lots of experience teaching stats to make it very understandable and practical...He’s a wonderful teacher with a lot of patience for any level of student.

Patricia, 3 lessons with Michael

excellent statistics tutor

Michael is an excellent tutor and was able understand and teach very complicated material. He is one of the best statistics tutor on Wyzant.

Elijah, 11 lessons with Michael

Very thorough but concise tutor!

Michael explained statistic analysis in a way that was so simple it was shocking. Simple but comprehensive. I now have a better understanding of the building blocks to performing multivariate statistical analyses. I look forward to learning more and increasing my confidence level as a result of his helpful instruction.

Kortney, 7 lessons with Michael

Great teacher, very knowledgeable and friendly

Michael has tutored me in statistics and in R programming. He is very knowledgeable in both, as well as how they fit together. I was struggling with some basic concepts, and he was able to break down the terminology and the processes involved in ways that helped me understand the material. His teaching methods are very effective. He also makes it clear that he really cares that I succeed in my goals.

Sarah, 3 lessons with Michael

Michael knows his stuff and really helped my son catch on.

Michael is patient and knows how to build skills and confidence in just one two-hour session. We are grateful for his help and will seek out his help again in the future.
