Hello! I'm Joseph M. and I provide tutoring lessons in five subjects: college-level mathematics, statistics, econometrics, Microsoft Excel, and Stata. I graduated magna cum laude with three bachelor's degrees in mathematics, finance, and economics and studied for two years in an interdisciplinary statistics and operations research PhD program with a concentration in computational finance. As both an undergraduate and graduate student, my elective coursework was concentrated in probability... [more]
I?ve used Excel on a regular basis for the past 10 years for a variety of purposes. I have extensive experience with most Excel formulas/functions, the ?what if analysis? tools (e.g., Solver), pivot tables/charts, and custom finance-related add-ins for Excel. I have the most experience with table lookup formulas (i.e., VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, INDEX, and MATCH) and tools and functions commonly used for financial (e.g., discounted cash flow) and statistical (e.g., regression) analysis.
Between college and graduate school, I've taken around a dozen courses in statistics, mathematical statistics, and applied statistics topics. I use statistics on a daily basis and regularly tutor students in this subject area (specifically, in regression analysis and survival analysis). I'm open to tutoring in statistics and topics in applied statistics at the high school, college, and graduate level.
I studied econometrics and financial econometrics as an undergraduate and took four additional semesters of econometrics courses as a graduate student in an interdisciplinary statistics and operations research PhD program. I have extensive knowledge of cross sectional, panel data, and time series regression models (e.g., OLS, FGLS, DID, fixed effects, autoregression, VAR, ARCH/GARCH, logistic, multinomial logistic, and Cox, among many others) and experience with estimating, specifying, and validating these models on datasets in Stata.
I studied econometrics and financial econometrics as an undergraduate and took four additional semesters of econometrics courses as a graduate student in an interdisciplinary statistics and operations research PhD program. The only statistics software that I used consistently for data analysis and econometric research while attending a university was STATA. Consequently, I have about 5 years of experience with scripting in STATA and using the software to estimate cross-sectional, time series, and panel regression models on financial, economic, and sociological data sets. I own a perpetual, single-user STATA license for personal use, so I can provide lessons involving this software literally anywhere.
