I am a PhD candidate at University of South Florida in Biostatistics. I have found that students learn best when the teacher approaches the lesson like a conversation rather than a lecture. This helps the student be engaged in the material and allows the instructor to better determine how well a student knows the material. I do my best to be able to explain or display every topic in at least three different ways, because it ensures I now the material extremely well and when a student is st...
Markku helped review basic stats with me. He was extremely patient and made sure that I understood all the basics of the homework problems we were reviewing before we moved on. He made it easy to understand the concepts and I look forward to our next session together!

Markku was great in helping me understand how statistics are used in real life research situations and analyses. Will definitely book again!
- Regina A. from Nokesville, VA
Markku was a wonderful tutor and helped me understand complex concepts using SPSS. He didn't just provide me with answers, and rather explained why I was completing a certain tasks or command, which helped me complete problems on my own. Once we were finished with my sessions, he also provided academic and career advice, which was extremely helpful. Highly recommend Markku as a tutor!

Markku helped me to understand some of the most difficult coding processes in SAS programming. With his help, I'm going to finish with an A in my course and will be 1 step closer to my degree.
- Bryan S. from Murrieta, CA
Markku surpassed my expectations. He is punctual, dependable, and conversational. He is comfortable to talk to when troubleshooting statistical analysis presentations. A go to resource for learning how to think about writing code in SAS. His tutoring style feels like a mix of mentoring, coaching, and an "office hour" all in one.
- Matthew W. from Rohnert Park, CA
Markku did an excellent job working with me on my biostats homework. Explained things in a way that I could understand and was very patient. He even helped me get a SAS for Academics account set up. Looking forward to working with Markku again.
- Marie S. from Hugo, MN
I HIGHLY recommend Markku, his sessions are ABSOLUTELY worth trying and I am sure you WON'T be disappointed. I have had the pleasure of taking few sessions with him and I am looking forward to continuing throughout this semester. His teaching simple as well as advanced concepts are TRULY SUPERIOR. He has excellent commination skills and a DEEP knowledge and passion for the subject matter. You will see all the top qualities of a great teacher in Markku including deep knowledge, approachability, superior listening skills, effective communication skills, patience, friendliness, and humility. ?The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires? Markku TRULY INSPIRED ME.

I went into the session completely clueless. I left being able to complete an assignment on my own, and get a perfect score the first try.

Markku is the best tutor I have had so far for these topics. He understand concepts and is able to explain all parts of the statistical and SAS portion of my questions. I have worked with tutors in the past that know sas or statistics but struggled to combine the two. My class is moving to R so I will continue to work with him throughout the semester.

Best R tutor I?ve had. I learned so much. Definitely worth the investment. Broke things down in a way I can understand.
- Liz P. from New Brunswick, NJ
Markku M. Gave me great examples that helped me under what a question in probability or binomial are asking.
- Angelica B. from Brandon, FL
Markku has some knowledge of SQL and he can clearly explain it and he is nice and patient and we had a pleasant class for the first time. But, something that happened next made me really disappointed. The second time we on Thursday 10 am. I double made sure on Wed night that we will have a meeting in the morning at 10 and he replied at night and said yes. However, in the morning, he did not show up and he did not send me any message to tell me that he could not make it until almost 4 pm in the afternoon, he said he had a bad sleep and sleep over the alarm. This is ridiculous. From this, I don't think he treats this tutor seriously. In the real world works, this kind of action can not be tolerated and this is super disrespectful. And even in his own policy, he will charge you $15 dollars for not showing up or cancel before 3 hours ahead. But for himself, he will pay nothing for you if he did not show up and just ignores ur schedule. I asked in this case, will I get 15 credits back and he stops replying to my message. As a friendly reminder, girls and boys, try not to make a session with him in the morning since he could sleep over again and mess up your schedule
- Marina N. from Piscataway, NJ
Markku did a good job of asking me questions to see where I was at before just steam rolling me with information, he also made me think for myself and also cheered me on in my studies which was greatly appreciated.
- Tyler C. from Logan, UT
Markku was an excellent tutor and helps you easily understand the material with his vast knowledge of stats. He challenges you and works out the problems with you with ease. Thank you for all the help Markku!
- Trevor S. from Palm Harbor, FL
I?m not very good with SAS but he definitely helped me a lot with great explanations. Worth the money and time
