Dr. Tra did a fantastic job reviewing with me what I consider to be advanced statistics however I am sure it was elementary to her. Nevertheless she was very patient and answered all my questions in a way that allowed me to easily apply her teaching to my specific needs. Thank you so much, looking forward to working with you again!
Dr. Tra is a great tutor. I gave her five stars because she knows what she is doing. I had major problems with statistics getting ready for an MBA program but with her help I ended up doing very well in class. I sincerely do not know how to thank her. She helped me a lot.
Yolande was the best she knows her statistics ,I was very impressed with her teaching approach ,she was very detailed and patient with me . I will defiantly recommend her to family and friend . She is a very pleasant person .
Yolande, If you were here, I would hug you! I'm just getting back from taking my final. My score was 82% so I definitely learned a lot from you! You have to remember that my last math class was algebra I in high school. I could barely figure out how to use the TI calculator. You should see me operate that calculator now. This grade kept my final grade an 'A' in the class!! If our paths had not crossed, my 4.0 GPA would have taken a nose dive...that is one thing I am sure of. Thanks again. Wishing you and your family a safe and enjoyable summer. Lynn (50+ year old, Registered Nurse. Returning to college for my BSN. Taking and passing Intro. to Statistical Methods with a solid A...thanks to Yolande)
Yolande was great. She helped me with mapping in R and taught me some basic R language. She was ver patient and helpful with any questions I had regarding the program I plan to keep studying R with her.
Yolande was amazing. She has extensive knowledge on statistical analysis. I would not have understood the homework without her. Thank you Yolande!
Yolande is fantastic! She is patient and able to explain complex principles and statistics in a manner that you can grasp and use. She is an EXPERT! I was particularly impressed with her thorough understanding of my class work and assignments. I am pleased with the progress that I made while working with Yolande. I am able totally able to recommend Yolande!
I am very grateful to Yolande for all her efforts and assistance. Even though I contacted her last minute she made herself available and adjusted her schedule so that she could help me with my project. She was very patient and took her time teaching the topic, and with her detailed explanations and data breakdown, I was able to comprehend the information. For anyone looking for a Statistics tutor I highly recommend Yolande. She is great!!!!
I highly recommend Yolande to whoever is looking for more explanation of material. She tutored me in Statistics, and her assistance in explaining the material helped me achieve grades much higher than had I not seeked her help. She was extremely knowledgeable in this topic, and was able to convey the information in a way that was easy to understand.
Dr. Tra is a phenomenal tutor!!!! She really knows her statistics. I needed help in my Statistics and Business course at the undergraduate level, and received the upmost best results after having worked with her. My grades in the course were almost impossible to turn around with 3 weeks until graduation, but I ended up receiving an “A” overall. If it was not for Dr. Tra, I would not have been successful in the course at all, nor would I have grasped the key concepts of the course material. Thank you Dr. Tra. You are the best! Dr. Tra is very quick in her response times. I initially emailed her at work mid-day and received an email responding to my needs the same day (really within hours). I really appreciated all of the hard work she put forth in making sure I felt comfortable in the subject area. She was a VERY helpful tutor! If I take up Stat or Mathematics in the graduate level, I will definitely use her as a reliable source of reference/extra help. SHE GETS MY VOTE! :)
Very helpful! Gave me the math text I was searching for for free and I only had to pay for additional questions. Plus I had been struggling to find this math text for some time and that she helped me find it was great!
