I have 8 years of on-ground teaching experience. Since last two years, I have teaching Economics, Statistics and Econometrics online.
I worked as a TA at the University of California and worked at different universities in Turkey (Bilgi, 29 Mayis, Galatarasaray universities). Hence I have experience in teaching. While teaching, I give examples from daily life and make students think about these which makes learning process more participating.
IB Extended Essay Tutor
IB Economics HL & SL Teacher
Over 255 hours of tutoring online. Have taught at the University of Strathclyde as a tutor to small groups while completing my doctorate.
I believe that a good tutor combines teaching and mentoring in a way that encourages students to use their own thinking and ability, set their own ‘agenda’, ask questions and then works with them to improve their self- confidence and ability in the subject.
I have degrees in Mathematics, Statistics and a postgraduate certificate in Teaching. I focus on teaching Mathematics and Statistics at Advanced, Foundation and University levels to a variety of students.
I teach A-level Maths and Statistics at school and also tutor students studying for AS, A2, IB exams under various boards (OCR, CIE, Edexcel, AQA, MAT/STEP, GRE). Topics covered have been in Core Maths, Further Maths and Statistics. I have certificates from MEI for teaching Further Maths across all syllabuses,
I have taught courses in Maths and Statistics at Universities. Also I have tutored University level students on topics covering Probability and Statistics, Linear Algebra, Complex Analysis, Numerical Analysis, Fluid Dynamics, Quantitative Methods in Business, Actuarial Maths, Financial mathematics.
I have over 6 years of tutoring experience, both online and offline, and I absolutely LOVE teaching. Nothing gives more joy than being able to share your knowledge and allow others to reach their true potential!
I am a neuroscientist and psychologist by training. The nature of my professional qualification allows for my broad knowledge of natural science, psychology, neurobiology, research methods, and academic writing. Additionally, my PhD at the moment deals with how our brain integrates senses when we see products and labels, so I also have avenues of knowledge and expertise in Marketing and product design.
I have tutored psychology, neuroscience (cognitive, behavioral, neuropsychology), research methods (design, acquisition, analysis, understanding) and academic writing (being able to put all of the above into the high standard writing required from the academic community).
As an Oxford graduate, I can also consult on Oxbridge applications and help students successfully entered their Oxford University career with my help.

I have tutored up to and including the Masters level. I have never failed to guide a student to their target grade. I have always begun with an assessment of the tutees level of understanding with regard to a specific subject matter and then crafted lesson plans to strengthen their fundamentals before progressing onto more complex subject matter.
I have found this to be the most effective method, having used it in the past to take a student without mathematics beyond GCSE to Achieve a merit on an MSc level "Statistics & quantitative Techniques" exam. I also like to tailor the experience to be compatible with the most effective learning style for each particular student. I have used more visual means for those with attention difficulties to ensure constant engagement with the subject material.
After completing my PhD, I taught research methods (including introductory and advanced quantitative methods) for four years as a full-time Teaching Fellow and Associate Lecturer in the Sociology Department at the University of York.
I convened a 150 student Social Research Methods module for 3 years and set and marked undergraduate and postgraduate coursework and assignments on a variety of different topics relating to research methods, SPSS, and data analysis. I've marked thousands of pieces of undergraduate coursework, as well as Masters coursework using advanced data analysis methods, such as regression,cluster analysis, factor analysis and many more.
As a supervisor at York I supervised around 40 undergraduate dissertations, and about 10 Masters dissertations. A good proportion of these students achieved 1st and starred 1st grades.
As a private tutor over the past two years I have tutored over 1000 hours with University students, University staff and professionals. Most of this work has been focused on helping undergraduate and postgraduate students with research methods and statistical analysis in SPSS.
I remain an active researcher within academia. My areas of scholarly interest are health, food, and quantitative and innovative methods. Two of the academic articles I have published in peer reviewed journals are listed below. The first paper in the list below was nominated for and awarded the Sociological Research Online award for Excellence and Innovation.

I have a PhD in Econometrics/ STATA and more than 15 years tutoring experience and classroom teaching in statistics/econometrics with college and graduate students. I am passionate about helping my students make a difference in statistical and econometrics learning, for instance understand concept quickly, test hypotheses, run regression, work through multiple examples and achieve the best results. In addition, with more than 15 years of tutoring and teaching experience in STATA, R, SAS, Tableau, econometrics/statistics with people in different disciplines, from college students to researchers/analysts in market research, economics, finance, business, etc. I have helped people analyzed complex dataset, bring out useful insights, run econometric regression to provide supportive and robust statistical results for their final thesis, dissertation or projects.
