EducationI am an Italian Clinical Psychologist (Ph.D.) expert in Psychometrics and Clinical Health Psychology. Currently, I am a post-doctoral research associate at Columbia University.
ExperienceSince my MS in developmental psychology minor in Psychometrics, I developed greater interest and expertise in data analysis. I taught psychometric (SPSS) for two years at MILANO-Bicocca University and recently at Columbia University. Furthermore, I taught research methodology (Parma University) for a semester. I have developed excellent expertise in data analysis using SPSS AMOS and Mplus. More recently SAS and I am learning R. I like to help students and researchers with their data analysis plan.
I have tutored students (doctoral students, undergraduates and graduates) all over the world for three years, in person or online (Skype, which made very easy to keep in touch with students around the world). I like to build a good relationship with my students, understanding their needs and doubts. Teaching statistics is not easy, but it's a wonderful challenge!
Professionally, I am author and co-author of international papers, and presentation to conferences. I like to learn new methodologies, and thanks to the experience as a tutor (and thanks to my students!!!) I learned a LOT!
HobbiesI am outgoing and patient, that is why I am a good teacher. I like to make sure my students understand what I am teaching.
I am Italian, I am proudly Italian! I love to laugh and to travel, of course (very stereotypical) I LOVE food and eating.

I met with Andrea twice. He was very flexible with scheduling and meeting places. When we met, he really made me feel comfortable, and if I did not understand something, he slowed down and explained things in a different way. He was very patient. In addition to helping me run my analyses on SPSS, he carefully explained what the analyses meant within the context of my study and beyond. It was very clear that he knows statistics and SPSS very well. Overall, Andrea has a lot of experience in the field of psychology and was a pleasure to work with. If I need help in the future, I will without a doubt reach out to him again.
Andrea helped prepare me for an important interview in which I needed to learn all about the basics of SPSS. Andrea not only made me feel confident in my ability to master SPSS, but he showed me that statistics can be a lot of fun. Andrea simplifies everything and takes you step by step through the process of learning statistics. He also shows you great shortcuts that will be important in the future. I absolutely recommend him to anyone!
This guy is the best - I am so happy to be working with him! I did not think I would ever finish my PhD due to the challenging statistics involved and now I truly believe I will because of his help. He is smart, patient, funny, and kind. We have worked together now for weeks and I honestly can say he is awesome and extremely knowledgeable about a range of topics, not just statistics. He is A+++
I would not hesitate to work with Andrea again in the future. I highly recommend him as a tutor. He walked me through a number of different analyses in Mplus and Spss. He was very knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. We met via Skype and to my relief it was not a hinderance to our sessions.
NIAndrea is one of the smartest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with, and he’s exceptionally gifted at translating difficult statistical and mathematical knowledge in ways that are accessible to others. I enlisted his tutoring services while completing several sets of sophisticated analyses using SEM--and in a software program I had never used (MPLUS). We met regularly for roughly six months, sometimes twice a week. I learned SO MUCH through the process. He was incredibly helpful and patient with my learning curve, which was steep at times. We conducted the tutoring sessions via Skype (audio). Through the screen sharing feature on Skype, which I had never used before, he was able to see my computer screen. Specifically, he could review my code and/or watch me writing the code within MPlus, or assist me in reading and interpreting the output--provide real-time feedback every step of the way. I was consistently impressed by his command both of statistics and statistical programs; if ever he didn’t know the answer, which was rare, he would immediately search for and locate the answer, as well as provide additional resources for me. It was an incredibly helpful and efficient process from start to finish. I found Andrea to be exceptionally responsive via email, generous with his time, and flexible and accommodating with my scheduling requests. Beyond his intellectual prowess, Andrea is just a wonderful person. He is affable, thoughtful, interesting, and has an incredibly positive outlook that makes the entire tone of the tutoring sessions engaging and enjoyable. I highly recommend his and his services. He far exceeded my expectations. L
Very knowledgeable, hard working and understanding. Andrea is able to explain the most complicated things in an easy to understand way. If you need help, this is your guy!
Andrea was very attentive to my project and expertly answered my questions, thoroughly explaining each step along the way. He took great care in his teaching process, and I would recommend him to everyone as a tutor!
I met with Andrea three times for help with the methodology on my dissertation. He quickly caught on to my research and what I was trying to do and offered very easy to follow instructions and guidance. He was also available by email after our sessions if I had questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Andrea has provided good one to one tuition over Skype on how to analyse data with Mplus. I'd definitely recommend him.
Andrea is a great tutor. I would recommend him for any statistics related subject. He is very proficient with the use of IBM SPSS statistical software which is a must especially for graduate level courses involving research. Andrea is very passionate about psychometrics and statistics. He helps students even days after the tutoring session through email and phone contact to make sure they are alright and comfortable with the material. One last thing, very affordable and easy to communicate with. Thanks for everything, Jas.
