« Fabulous! As part of my master's program, I have had to struggle with quantitative methods especially panel data modeling. Through a long session with Syed, I was not only better been able to understand how to interpret statistical results on Stata but also improved my understanding of model estimates, and how to generate more respectable hypotheses. I strongly recommend Syed for those struggling with quantitative methods and regression modeling, as he explains technical things in an understandable manner. »

Quantitative, and Qualitative aspects of Research Methods, in Social Sciences & Humanities subjects.

Methodology

Following are elaborations on how I approach and formulate my teaching preferences:

Avoiding bounded rationality, determining the relevance of methodological paradigm and the methodology: I prioritize illustrating the relevance of research methods and paradigms using examples of researched and researchable topics.

Furnishing a creative and indigenous stance: As faculty of research methods and as research supervisor I have to make sure that the research notion is indigenous. Researchers need to carefully differentiate between obsolete, contemporary, and forthcoming designs. Such a critical assessment is needed so that the intellectual worth of the proposed research may early be evaluated. In order to do that effectively, we have to rely heavily on key databases of academic literature such as the Jstor, Science Direct, Springer Link, Sage, etc. so that any research notion may strongly be grounded in literature.

Synchronizing hypothesis with research design: While furnishing the design of research, I carefully inspect that the choice of methodological tools, justify the needs of the data and the stated hypothesis.

Structuring the thesis: the special emphasis is laid upon how to structure the thesis into a detailed table of contents, how to conduct and write a review of literature, in a way so that the incidence of plagiarism may naturally be avoided.

Making data collection choices: How to make choices of the data collection methods among primary data collection in form of designing semi-structured or fully structured questionnaires, deciding about the selection of variables for specific analytical needs using databases of statistical information in a time series analysis, and how to pool the data.

Supplementing digitalized resources: to facilitate digitalized learning in online tutoring, I supplement all the stated packages through screen sharing, so that all steps and procedures related to the data management and the analysis of the data, may directly be visualized. In addition to that if there is a further need of making graphs, and writing equations, the digital tablet is used with the Microsoft Whiteboard and screen sharing options, so that student(s) get the similar feel of a live classroom.

Research reporting: How to report findings and results, how to interpret results and how to specify limitations of research.

Fabulous! As part of my master's program, I have had to struggle with quantitative methods especially panel data modeling. Through a long session with Syed, I was not only better been able to understand how to interpret statistical results on Stata but also improved my understanding of model estimates, and how to generate more respectable hypotheses. I strongly recommend Syed for those struggling with quantitative methods and regression modeling, as he explains technical things in an understandable manner.
