Statistics (looking for classes in english)

hello!

I will be starting a master in september and my program includes a statistics course. I would like to take some statistics classes before the program starts (at least the basic)...does anyone know someone that teaches or can teach statistics in english? that will help me a lot since I don't want to be kind of lost and overwhelmed with that course during the program!

I'm in zurich.

many thanks for any information!

Re: Statistics (looking for classes in english)

I don't know of any appropriate courses, but there is quite a lot of free online information about statistics, the Wikipedia article Wikipedia reference-linkStatistics lists a number at the bottom, and a Google search may turn up more sites. For more assistance here, the term "statistics" is too broad, you should be more specific about what type of course you are looking for, or at least which subject your Masters will be in.

There are some free statistics learning resources at http://www.conceptstew.co.uk/PAGES/freeresources.html. Concept Stew also produce a basic introduction to statistics which is not at all technical, and would serve as a good beginning before your Masters stats classes. You can download a demo from the site as well.

Re: Statistics (looking for classes in english)

many thanks ChrisW and Jill for the help!! I'll check those sites.

I will be doing a master in environmental sciences and the statistics course will cover 1) R language; 2) R graphics; 3) regression; 4) analysis of variance and 5) analysis of covariance.

if someone knows anybody who can teach these please let me know.

thanks again!!!

Re: Statistics (looking for classes in english)

Hi ballena,

I am a university student studying at undergraduate level. I am just about to complete my course in business statistics and as I taught myself the course through correspondence I have a range of resources which may interest you, however this course is called "business statistics" and is a prerequisite to further statistics courses, which I imagine is what you will be studying. That said you may find some of the information helpful. I move back to Zug in July so if you want some help, Im sure we can meet up

good luck!

Re: Statistics (looking for classes in english)

Do you need to learn R specifically? (The statistical programing language R)? In addition to general statistics? I know some students who use it - I can see if they know anyone in Zuerich - send me a PM if that's what you need.

Re: Statistics (looking for classes in english)

Not a tutor, but if anyone is looking for information on classes in English... There is a social entrepreneurship company that just started offering free online courses from prestigious universities in the US, only 4 months ago. I had a look myself today - looks very good.
www.coursera.org
They added 12 more universities in July (I think) and offers 120 courses.
I came across this while browsing through TED speeches, and one of the founders had given a speech about online education and the philosophy behind making education available to everyone.

Almost forgot to add - and it offers intro stats class
