Hello! If Athanasios is too long and cumbersome, please call me Thanos :)
I am 31 years old and have a strong background in statistics and applied empirical research. I graduated with two MSc. degrees in Behavioural and Policy Economics from Erasmus School of Economics and a micromasters certificate in Statistics and Data Science from MIT. I am currently working as a data science consultant in Amsterdam, helping business units implement data science solutions.
I am passionate about data modeling and teaching! Through multiple academic courses and industry work, I have studied and implemented a wide range of methods and techniques, from descriptive analysis and data visualization to econometric and machine learning models. But, what I love the most is helping people appreciate the art of statistics, using simple explanations and appealing to their intuition.
I have received more than a thousand student evaluations over the years, which have helped me recognize my strengths as a tutor. According to my students, I am very patient, can provide intuitive and clear explanations of technical concepts, as well as create a safe environment where they can ask all their questions. In my classes, students are placed in the driver's seat and learn at a pace that is optimal for them and their needs.
I am looking forward to seeing you in class!
6+ years of teaching experience in statistics and quantitative research methods at Erasmus University Rotterdam, incl. small scale interactive classes, lectures, thesis supervision and coordination of large classes with 200+ students. Ranked as top statistics tutor for 3 consecutive years based on according to students evaluations.
- Quantitative Research Methods & Analysis with R
- Intermediate Statistics I & II
- Introduction to Statistics & SPSS
- Applied Econometrics
- Behavioural Economics
- Comparative Politics
- Empirically oriented BSc. theses
I have a strong background in the fundamentals of statistics/econometrics and programming, both in theory and practice.
Here is an indicative list of topics I can help you with, but please note this list is not exhaustive:
- Hypothesis Testing, Analysis of Experimental Data, Power, Effect Size
- Parametric Inference and Estimation (i.e., regression, t-test, chi-square test)
- Causal Inference with Observational Data (i.e., instrumental variables, difference-in-differences, regression discontinuity)
- Probability Theory (i.e., LLN, CLT, probability distributions, Bayes theorem)
- Non - parametric and Machine Learning methods (i.e., supervised classification/regression techniques, unsupervised/clustering techniques)
- Quantitative methodology and evaluation of analysis results
In addition, the class may cover programming and coding in R, Python or SPSS.
Overall, I can help and guide you in the implementation of any statistical and econometric analyses pertaining to the disciplines of psychology, economics, policy evaluation, management, political science and sociology.
Excellent lesson on Power Analysis. Thank you Thanos.
Thank you for your help regarding SPSS and helping me to understand the statistical tests I will need to use. Very patient and clear - thank you.
Great Lesson on Mediation Analysis.
clear and good explanation about what I needed
Athanasios is extremely patient, and able to break down statistics concepts in a way that is understandable and practical, and caters his teaching to your strengths and your current understanding. Excellent tutor.
Fantastic meeting once again, could not recommend Mr. Athanasios to other students more!
Class was great, Thanos is helpful and kind!
