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.
I currently work as an economist at the Bureau of Labor Statistics and utilize econometric techniques every day. I have a strong working proficiency in both STATA programming and SAS programming and can supplement student's learning with programming help. Additionally, I completed the entire economics curriculum at the College of William & Mary which included several econometrics courses. I frequently attend economics conferences around the country and present economics research that uses these techniques.
SAS is my secondary statistical package of choice. All internal processes at the Bureau of Labor Statistics are run using SAS and a large part of my job is improving the programmatic efficiency of the programs in the office. I have taken and completed several SAS training programs with Destiny Corp. and am comfortable teaching best practices.
STATA is my statistical package of choice. I produce sample code for the programs at the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Additionally, I frequently participate in conferences and workshops as a presenter utilizing BLS data using STATA programming. The econometrics courses at William & Mary were all taught using STATA.
