I specialize in helping people with STATA for long term research projects. I am the only tutor on Wyzant who has tutored STATA over 600 hours, more than the next 10 most experienced STATA tutors combined*. Most tutors on this site tutor many subjects. While I started with a several subjects, I now specialize in helping people with stata and their quantitative projects. I have used STATA professionally for 5 years and in my graduate coursework. I use STATA in my day job, as an economic analyst...
Reviews
Fantastic tutor!! Mark was incredibly helpful in assisting me with STATA for a final project at an elite university. Mark advised me as to the best way to go about collecting datasets, building my own, and importing and merging them into STATA. Would highly recommend Mark to anyone who needs help navigating the STATA environment.
- Annemarie D. from Las Vegas, NV
Mark taught me the basics of Stata. How to properly set up a do-file, run different types of regressions and interpret results. It was really useful and all within 1 hour of my time.
- Joseph G. from Merrick, NY
Mark is very reliable and knowledgable. He helped me refine the idea of my final project and taught me how to carry out the empirical analysis. He is very helpful and kind.
- Mia L. from Bryn Mawr, PA
Mark is enthusiastic, innovative, and extremely knowledgeable in applying and teaching STATA, including the analysis of complex medical research data. He is also able to easily and quickly explain the significance of outputs, and look at relationships within the data, which was very helpful to me.

I've gone through numerous tutors on here for STATA help when creating econometric models before I found Mark. Many tutors are helpful with econometrics but simply don't have anywhere near the level of understanding of STATA as Mark and that is if they use the program at all. As a grad student there is an extra level of complexity to my modeling and the STATA skill required for my work and unlike many other tutors Mark has no problem explaining concepts and coding. His tips on quick keys alone are worth a session. Throughout my experience on here I've only found one other tutor that I would say is comparable and Mark's willingness to be flexible with time simply makes him the easy choice.
- Jonathan R. from Mesa, AZ
I am a Ph.D. student and I was having a hard time to review my data and analysis. Long story short: It took me two hours to work with Mark the same things that would take 10 with some other tutors that I have tried. He is incredibly knowledgeable and aware of the needs of his students. I highly recommend him.
- Karol M. from Miami, FL
I had a very complicated project in Stata and hired two Stata experts before Mark to help me with that and none of them could help me. Mark was fast, clear and sharp in figuring out the Stata problem. I have a Ph.D. in economics and teach economics to the graduate students and definitely recommend Mark to anybody who has a complicated project in Stata.
- Farah F. from Catonsville, MD
Mark is an expert at Stata. He was very helpful in discussing potential research questions and looking at the data. Highly recommend Mark to anyone who needs help with Stata or thinking about the data.
- Richard P. from Mission Viejo, CA
Mark was very knowledgeable. He was very patient answering my basic questions one by one as I was learning the statistics skills and Stata skills at the same time. I'd recommend him greatly.
- Nelly -. from Arlington, VA
Mark responded to my inquiry within 10 minutes and we were able to schedule a meeting for him to help me with my multiple regression project and also how to use Stata. He was extremely patient with me, walked me through all the questions and topics I had, made complicated matters seem easy. Very helpful and very smart, he was very familiar with the program and he's an expert in math/statistics/regression. Goes out of his way to ensure that I understood all aspects of the project.
- tareq a. from Los Angeles, CA
I had a very complicated dataset and I contacted several STATA tutors before I reached out to Mark. He understood what I need clearly and was able to merge and clean up my data the exact way I need. Throughout the project, Mark also provided me a lot of advises on how to create variables and do comparisons to make my research argument more valid and comprehensive. He explained every step clearly and was very patient and responsive even after the lessons when I have some follow-up questions. I would definitely work with him again in the future.
- Duan L. from New York, NY
Mark patiently helped me figure out a daunting 30 page research project in STATA. Not only is Mark extremely patient, but he knows every trick in STATA possible and really helps you learn the material until you know it perfectly! Recommend to anyone.
- Naomi D. from New York, NY
Mark was extremely helpful in showing me how to organize my STATA code and learn new commands that are more efficient for conducting the analyses I need. He's helping get me back on track with my dissertation!
- Shirley B. from Montclair, NJ
Mark is a patient teacher who will help you ask questions of your data before you even know what to ask. Preparation and follow-up after sessions is thorough and prompt. You won't regret going to Mark for help with STATA and statistics.
- Jay D. from San Francisco, CA
I am a graduate student in finance and my project involved replicating a research paper. This was a very difficult paper to understand, let alone replicate. Feel free to read it before bed if you'd like: "Illiquidity and Stock Returns: Cross-Section and Time-Series Effects". The rest of the graduate class submitted poorly constructed code with incorrect results. I chose to reach out to Mark for help. Mark helped clean the data, create the variables, and produce summary statistics. While that sounds simple enough, this was an incredibly large data set, the variables were complex, the constraints confusing and abundant, amongst other things. In addition, Mark suggested skipping over a certain part (finding mean of annual skewness for 4 complex variables) that would take hours to process and have no effect on my grade. This saved hundreds of dollars and is indicative of his character and approach to tutoring.
- Navraj R. from Saint Louis, MO
Mark was very passionate about his subject, he navigates through datasets with ease and helped me to look at my research topic in different lens. however Mr. Mark did not go through my question fully which i sent via a WYZant message and it was clear that he did not read the attached word file I've sent explaining my topic and my proposed Methodology. For my first lesson on Wyzant there was also a miscommunication on both sides if the first session we had was the free consultation call or if it was the first lesson, though Mr. Mark was kind to discount 20 min or so of the total time we spent. overall I would highly recommend Mark for his subject matter. Thank you for your time.

Mark was a great instructor, I would really recommend it with stata assignments or toturinng. We spent 3 hours as we thought. He tried to finish all the major requirements to make sure that I'll be able to finish it alone. He is respectful, professional and smart.
- Hadeil N. from New York, NY
I was having a lot of trouble finding a tutor to help me with my course. Mark was the only one who proved knowledgeable in the material.
- Beatrix W. from Marlboro, NJ
Mark is an expert in statistics and economic data analysis who deep understanding of STATA. Although his asking rate is higher than what other tutors offer, Mark was able to help me much more with my thesis in an hour in an hour than other Wyzant tutors were able to help in 2 hours; I think that I will end up spending less overall, because he was so much more knowledgeable and efficient. I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone looking to learn more about how to use STATA.
- Michael C. from Los Angeles, CA
Mark was very easy to get in contact with and was also willing to accommodate to my schedule. He taught me the essentials of STATA and we managed to get everything done under the budgeted time, which was great too! I would definitely recommend Mark
