Our study support
1- on 1 tutorial
Do you know the so-called stumbling blocks? Or do you have trouble studying for exams? Our team of professional tutors will be happy to help you with 1-on-1 tutoring. Before you start with tutoring, we first schedule an consultation call with you. You can have a free consultation call with one of our MatchMakers. They will help you find out how they can help you in the best way possible. Their advice immediately gives you an idea where you currently stand. After this conversation, you will usually be linked to a tutor within 1 day. The tutor is also specialized in your field of study. Together with your tutor you will schedule the tutoring hours.
After the free consultation call, we will match you to a tutor within your field of expertise. This is often possible within one working day. Together with your tutor, you will figure out in what area you need study guidance. In addition, you will agree on how often you meet. Appointments with your tutor can be made by phone, Skype, e-mail or at a rendezvous point. This makes it easy to work from home. Also, nothing will be delayed because you do not have to wait for a long time for feedback.
Your personal tutor is the first point of contact. He or she will also keep an eye on the progress of your study. For example, your tutor will help you with writing summaries. In addition, your tutor ensures you that you can learn in a structured way. Your tutor will adhere the structure that you have drawn up together.
During your entire study, the tutor will function as a big stick. Your tutor ensures you that stress will be reduced. In addition, he or she will ensure that you have sufficient time for social activities with your friends. Of course, other forms of guidance can be used during the personal coaching process.
Statistics and SPSS tutoring
If you have to deal with statistics during your study, there is a good chance that you need to work with SPSS. Working with a statistical programme can be quite complex. Many students get stuck during this course. For example, ‘what questions do you want to answer with the help of data? And ‘which ones are answered by secondary research?’ Guidance for statistics can offer a solution to such uncertainties. The lecturers at Slim Academy will be happy to help you get started. This will help you map out these difficult questions. In addition, you and your tutor will make sure that you pass your exams!
1-on-1 tutoring in statistics
Together with your tutor, you will make an inventory of the questions you have about this subject. The focus will be on learning techniques. This will enable you to continue your work yourself. So it is not the intention that the tutor will provide you with output. Or, for example, clean up your dataset. In short, our statistical advisors will show you how to proceed. With the aim that you actually learn a lot from it. Both with qualitative and quantitative statistical research we can help you on your way.
Statistical tutoring for research subjects
Help with SPSS saves you a lot of time, money and effort. With the help of Slim Academy, you can be more focused and work on your own questions. You can also work on your exams. Do you have to carry out your own research? And do you still have to collect data? We can give you concrete advice about this as well. This can be done, for example, when drawing up questionnaires or surveys. Other questions that we often receive are, for example: what can or cannot be done with your collected data? Once you have collected the data, we will look at what you can or cannot do with it. We will show you how to clean up your dataset. We will also check assumptions together. In addition, we will explain to you what you have to do before you can analyse the data.
– Are you going to remove missing values?
– Do you still have questions that need to be recoded?
– Do you need to create scale scores (or new variables)?
– Are they reliable?
– How do you perform a factor analysis, and how do you calculate Cronbach’s alpha?
– How do you analyse and how do you interpret the results?
From this point on, we will start to work on the actual data analysis. Once we know which variables we need to be able to answer your questions and which tests we are going to use to do this, there will not be much work left.
There are a number of standard methods of analysis that we can help you with: Single and multiple regression analysis, mediation and moderation analysis, correlation analysis, variance analysis (ANOVA: one-way, two-way, repeated measures), t-tests (one sample, independent samples, paired samples), Chi-square, factor analysis, reliability analysis (Cronbach’s alpha), logistic regression etc.
