Are you taking statistics and finding the material challenging? Not quite sure when to use which formula, and just as unsure about how to apply or develop it? Are you in the dark when it comes to interpreting SPSS output? No idea what to do with those tables at the back of your book? Wondering why you keep failing your exam?
Many students quickly fall behind in statistics. If you’re struggling with it at home, it can be difficult to work through it on your own and even more difficult to maintain interest and stay motivated. Regular meetings with a coach keep procrastination at bay and give you the additional support you need to truly understand the material and make progress.
What’s the key to our approach?
You’ll start by meeting up with your statistics coach. We will take a good look at your strengths and your study ambitions. You’ll use your own book and practice material during the tutorial, so you’ll be fully prepared for your exam. We will work through your assignments step by step and delve deeper into the more challenging sections. Are you completely new to the world of statistics? No problem, we will go through the material at your own pace. You’ll not only learn what to do but also why you’re doing it. Stumbling over complex statistics assignments will become a thing of the past!
How often should I schedule tutoring?
As often as you want or need. We advise scheduling regular tutorial sessions so that you remain familiar with the material. Some students come once per week, while others come twice. It is also possible to schedule sessions longer than one hour. One-off tutoring sessions (for a single challenging component, for example) are, of course, also possible.
We offer tutoring in the most common statistics subjects, descriptive and inferential statistics, for HBO and university classes alike:
- measures of central tendency (mean, median, mode)
- measures of dispersion (range, variance, standard deviation)
- measures of association (chi-square, odds ratio, Spearman and Pearson correlations, covariance)
- normal distribution
- binomial distribution
- poisson distribution
- chi-square distribution
- confidence intervals
- hypothesis tests
- nonparametric tests
- ANOVA (one-way, two-way, repeated measures)
- regression (linear and logistic, simple and multiple, working with dummy variables)
- interpreting or reporting SPSS output
We are familiar with most statistics textbooks. These are some of the most commonly used textbooks:
- Agresti and Franklin – The art and science of learning from data
- Agresti and Finlay – Statistical methods for the social sciences
- Twisk – Inleiding in de toegepaste biostatistiek
