I'm also firm believer in using simple examples to bring complex topics down to an understandable level.

My name is J.T. and I have a passion for statistics and teaching. I obtained my Master's and PhD in Statistics from Virginia Tech. Following graduation, I spent two years teaching at Bucknell University and I am now a Data Scientist. I really enjoy simplifying the mathematics to make statistics easy to understand and intuitive. I'm also firm believer in using simple examples to bring complex topics down to an understandable level.

I am familiar and comfortable teaching most areas of statistics. I have taught university classes in Introductory Statistics, Statistical Inference (calculus), Probability & Statistics for Engineers, Biostatistics, and Regression Models. I also have experience with Bayesian statistics, Machine Learning, and coding with R and Python.
