Let me start by telling you a little about myself. I have a BS degree in Architecture as well as a MS and Ph.D. in Psychology with a focus on statistics and psychophysiology.
Now to the important stuff! I have been teaching behavioral statistics as well as mathematical statistics for about 10 years. Although both ultimately answer the same questions, the teaching methods and focuses are different. The good thing about this diversity in teaching methods is that it allows me to teach multiple ways of doing the same type of analysis thus I am able to tailor the tutoring to the strengths of the individual. I have been teaching statistics for 10 years now and also teach advanced statistics as well as research methods (experimental method protocols). I enjoy teaching statistics because it is not a course most students look forward to taking - I try to make it fun and meaningful by using real world examples (sports, real estate, psychological testing, finance, etc. anything to get to get a student to understand what is commonly thought of as "dry" material). Statistics can be fun as well as valuable. It can offer insight into less than informative news articles, medical research, internet polls and more. Once a student understands statistics, he or she is capable of critically evaluating those things people take for granted. Even statistics knowledge is power. Thanks for reading a little about my views and I hope to get some tutoring going.
As an option for students enrolled in the same class (Fundamental Statistics perhaps), I can offer special pricing for groups. This is particularly helpful if you and colleagues/co-workers are getting together for a study group and need an extra professional point of view. Let me start by telling you a little about myself.

As a 4.0 GPA graduate student in my final semester attending one of the most prestigious universities in Wisconsin — if not the most prestigious — (top 100 U.S. Ranking), with interest in becoming a doctoral candidate, I was lost and desperate for tutoring in my final course as it relates to statistics and SPSS software for research. Feeling lost, burnt-out, and worried about making it to graduation, I turned to Google searches and Craigslist looking for tutors. I came across WyzAnt and their personalized customer support was very helpful. I was put in touch with Jeff, who teaches several classes at a very reputable university. I am also a sworn Police Officer here in Wisconsin and considered extremely resourceful — always exhibiting investigative qualities: diligence, caution, and research. Jeff is the real deal. With his assistance, I earned a 97% on my Midterm while the second highest score in the class received an 84%. I went from being completely lost to obtaining the highest score while learning what really matters most. Jeff will work with you and help you get through the course. No need to research looking for another tutor — take it from a soon-to-be doctoral candidate, police officer, and business man – Jeff is the real deal and will help you get through the course and you will be able to breathe and lower your blood pressure.
Jeff is very knowledgeable about Statistics, Biostatistics, and SPSS program. Jeff helped me to master Biostatistics concept to become successful in my Biostatistisc Graduate course. I never used SPSS program to analyze data before taking my graduate course in Biostatistics, and felt anxious to submit my assignments. Jeff helped me to become confident in this course. Jeff uses different strategies and a lot of examples in order to explain contexts. He provided additional resources that helped me to understand contexts better. I highly recommend Jeff as a tutor and as a faculty for both undergraduate and graduate levels in Statistics and Biostatistics.
Jeff did an outstanding job tutoring me in statistics. He has a lot of patience and takes great pride in his occupation. He is friendly and easygoing. He is very effective in getting students to give it heir best effort and succeed! Highly recommended!
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.
