My Background

I earned my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at UT Dallas in 2018, specialized in developing new statistical methods. During my 7 years in the PhD program, I taught intro and advanced (big data, aka multivariate) statistics, programming in R, experimental research design, and received extensive training in academic writing, presenting, and project management.

Since graduating, I have worked as a statistics tutor and data science consultant, and travelled in my van, "Pam", visiting friends, family, and forests.

In this time, I've also been an active student of positive psychology, peak performance, motivation, emotional awareness, nonviolent communication, etc. I also bring these skills and experiences, because operating at our best is not just about learning ideas - we also need to feel safe, creative, and motivated.

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.

Very patient teacher

Michael can explain statistics and teach R programming to a non-quantitative thinker and beginner programmer like me in a way I could finally begin to understand it. He was my lifesaver.

Tania, 10 lessons with Michael

Michael is very knowledge, and professional

Michael, taught me, the solution of problems applying R programming, in a clear and simple way, from the beginning step by step. After the training I was able to do it by myself.

Jesus, 3 lessons with Michael

Great tutor

Michael has helped me over several years in multiple subject from Criminal Justice Statistics and regular statistics to writing a term paper for a very picky Social Diversity professor. He has always been very patient and very helpful. He explains things in a way that makes sense to me. As someone that thought they would never get statistics that says a lot. I highly recommend Michael.

Trent, 11 lessons with Michael

Amazing teacher

Michael was extremely helpful in helping me prepare for my consumer research exam. I went in knowing barely anything and I came out with a strong grip on the subject in the matter of a little over an hour. I would highly recommend using him if you need help because he is great!

Matthew, 1 lesson with Michael

Knowledgable and Patient

Helped me clarify the scope of my dissertation topic and offered relevant suggestions. Spent 45 minutes with him and it helped me to get focused and clarified the steps I need to take to come to my research questions. Will definitely hire again.

Carol, 1 lesson with Michael

Exceptionally smart and savvy tutor

I have been tutored for statistics and R programming by Michael and think he is an extraordinary teacher. He is beyond bright but very talented at helping his students with the concepts and in guiding their work. In what was my first coding class, Michael played an essential role in the simplification of the material and helping me work through the daunting assignments. As a result, I got an A in the class and now have dramatically more confidence about taking additional coding courses! -Matt, 8 lessons with Michael

Organized and Structured

Statistics Instructions are of a high level of expectancy. I would recommend DR. MIKE THE MATH MAN, to any person doing this for the first time. Thanks for your consistency.

intelligent and patient tutor-excellent

Michael has been a huge support in learning Statistics and R! His patience and ability to breakdown the process in an easy to follow format are unmatched by most educators. I will be requesting his assistance rebought the duration of my graduate statistics course. He’s truly an asset to those seeking to learn statistics!

Shawna, 18 lessons with Michael

Great tutoring experience

Michaels understanding of statistics and programming helped me make one of my most difficult problems manageable. He helped dissect a couple of statistical functions I was having trouble with. His exceptional knowledge made the equations seem easy. I would recommend Michael.
