Steve Machlin

Statistics Tutor

Meet Steve Machlin:

Georgetown Grad | Experienced Statistician.

I am a recently retired professional statistician with teaching experience who enjoys helping high school and college students understand the subject of statistics and appreciate its applicability to real-world problems. In addition to an undergraduate degree in business statistics, a Masters’ degree in biostatistics, and many years of professional experience as a statistician, I have taught several semesters of undergraduate and graduate-level statistics classes at universities in Washington DC (Georgetown and George Washington) and tutored high school students. I’ve also enjoyed my experiences working with kids in other capacities, including as a swim instructor/coach and as a Big Brother volunteer.

I have an affable style that generally makes both shy and extroverted people feel comfortable working with me. As an adjunct professor at Georgetown, I consistently received positive reviews from my students for my approachability and ability to explain challenging statistical concepts and applications in a clear and down-to-earth manner. I believe that statistics is often taught in an overly rigid and dry manner which does not promote understanding that there is not always an exact black and white solution to every problem involving data. Consequently, I make a special effort to use relatable real-world examples when explaining concepts and applications.
