What do others say about the StatsGuru® and his teaching methods?

Here are just a few of the unsolicited comments given by former students

“I was never a math or a stats person. I had to go through 3 years of stats for my applied science psychology degree and it was difficult and hard at first. @YourStatsGuru helped me to go through these difficult times and I managed to get a Distinction for my final thesis! Thank you Matthew Ovens”
Adi (Psychology @ RMIT)
“Love opening a stats study guide for a second year subject just to find all of the things I learnt back in first year. If I’ve learnt anything it’s that Matthew Ovens is a fantastic teacher :)”
Kristina (Psychology @ RMIT)
“THANKYOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! I seriously couldn’t have passed without the help of tutoring. I am forever grateful for the help I have received. You kinda learn to like maths after a while…but shhh no telling. THANKS”
Kellie (Education @ Vic. Uni.)
“I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for spending the time to teach me in a way that made sense and most of all for showing me how to appreciate the field of statistics, leading a student like me with a long time weakness in math to pass”
Stephen (Bus. Law @ La Trobe)

The StatsGuru®

Our goal at is to help you discover the true power and beauty of mathematics and statistics. Maths and stats are not simply a set of boring repetitive exercises in a textbook, rather they are the very language that helps to describe our world and help us to predict the future. Without maths and stats, we would have no way to measure temperature and therefore no way to identify if it is getting warmer or colder. Without maths and stats, you wouldn’t be reading this webpage either as there would be no way to reliably generate electricity or produce electronic devices.

Understanding and mastering maths and stats, like any language, is not an overnight process, rather it is a journey. Like any journey, there are times when you desperately need a guide to find the path while at other times the path is clear. Take the StatsGuru® as your guide and along the journey you will hear stories from the development of maths and stats; stories of danger, heroism, intrigue, success and some monumental goofs.

Why study Maths or Stats?

Well aside from the fact that we all use maths and stats in our everyday lives and have done so as a species since our cave-dwelling days, knowing more about mathematics and/or statistics can help you:

  • Make better choices, particularly when buying products or services
  • Open up many more career and further study opportunities
  • Understand sports better (yes, even soccer players use trigonometry and calculus)
  • Identify how marketing, advertising and even store layouts are used to try and influence your purchasing
  • Recognise how mathematics and statistics are used everyday in many different ways (even bees use mathematics to communicate with each other)
