Hi, I’m Michael! I earned my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience from UT Dallas in 2018, specializing in the development of new statistical methods. During my 7 years in the PhD program, I taught introductory and advanced (multivariate) statistics, programming in R, experimental research design, and received extensive training in scientific writing and project management. 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.
Since completing my doctorate, I’ve been working as a freelance tutor and consultant, continuing my learning independently in order to 1) help students with a broader range of statistical methods, and 2) adapt my academic skills for application in business–advising and/or conducting business analytics for data-driven decision making.
I love tutoring statistics because it’s often so painful to learn,
and it doesn’t have to be!
Around my 4th year of teaching statistics, I began to recognize the patterns underneath the equations and processes I had been teaching and learning. It turns out, there are really just a few fundamental ideas that are slightly adapted to generate the whole field of statistics. And these ideas can be explained using simple visuals. I wondered, why didn’t any of my teachers just explain it this way?!?
So that’s what makes me unique as a tutor–I suffered through learning this stuff, and now I love explaining it in a way that just clicks!!
Once you grasp the big picture, all of the various details and equations become intuitive; After all, the equations are just different ways of pointing to the same few basic patterns.
Maybe you think this doesn’t apply to you? You’re too confused?
