To make an appointment for a consultation

  • If you do not know who can help you, e-mail with a detailed description of your problem

Data Services has full-time professional faculty members who offer consultations by appointment to the Mason community as well as workshops and classroom presentations in their area(s) of expertise. There are also several part-time staff members who consult. There is no cost for these services.

Assistance is offered to faculty, staff, graduate students, and undergraduate students working on class assignments, theses, or independent research. Our role is to guide you through your research question while teaching you relevant skills that you can use in the future.

Initial contact is usually by email to make an appointment. Early contact is encouraged.

For tutoring, see the list put together by the Counseling Center.
Statisticians-for-hire are available from the Statistical Consulting Center.
