Making critical choices in Thesis, dissertation, and research projects (Social Sciences & Humanities subjects).

Methodology

Are you in the anxiety of dealing with technical matters of writing a thesis/ paper such as phrasing research hypotheses; finding gaps in literature; structuring the document; writing the literature review, and dealing with methodological issues to analyze the data? To ensure hands-on experience, I prefer the following considerations:

Searching for Novel stance and dealing with the creative anxiety: 
For researchers’ who plan to do academic research for the first time, I devise a literature search strategy, so that we can explore the gaps in the literature and are able to produce high valued research projects. For that matter, I heavily rely on databases of scholarly and academic literature such as the Jstor, Science Direct, Springer Link, Sage, etc. so that any research notion may strongly be grounded in literature.

Choosing appropriate research design and phrasing hypotheses with high academic value:
The prime focus is laid upon how to choose an appropriate research design that can closely approximate the statement of the research hypothesis. Assessing the academic value of the stated hypothesis, as an obsolete, conventional, contemporary, and purely indigenous narrative is always important for researchers and supervisors, particularly if they are seeking to explore gaps in research. As research supervisor I have to make sure that the research notion is indigenous, and that the proposed work is not been affected by bounded rationality (too little knowledge).

Making data choices:
Among alternative formats of the data such as the time series, cross-sectional, and panel data we need to pick something that may have a contemporary orientation. Researches that are based upon the use of the conventional dataset, without the use of new instrument and indicators may result in conventional findings that may compromise your goals to score high in research. Keeping in view the digitalization orientation of the present-day research both in the quantitative and qualitative research designs, we potentially can supplement packages such as R, Stata, SPSS, Minitab, and Nvivo, for analysis of the data.

Structuring the paper and avoiding plagiarism: 
I place special attention upon structuring the thesis into a detailed table of contents, so that the depth of the knowledge may reasonably be illustrated as part of the document. Writing a literature review and other parts of the thesis, avoiding the incidence of plagiarism is always important so that to comply with international protocols of academic honesty.

Perfect! Incredible! Syed has helped me understand my research in ways that I previously had very little knowledge of. He has been able to help me understand my own paradigm and offers solutions to understanding how to put together a strong argument together that is comprehensive and consistent throughout the paper. I will continue with him regarding aspects of methodologies, particularly in quantitative analysis. He comes as a highly intelligent and experienced researcher. I recommend him if you are in need of a little "tough love" to help you create an impactful and novel research paper. His attention to detail is very precise. He is fair and understanding of researchers from beginner to advanced. I highly recommend Syed for the dissertation, thesis guidance, and support in writing a journal paper.

Syed's response

Positive person, with a good learning attitude and a strong urge for career development.

I enjoyed a lot my tutoring sessions on topics in 'Observational data analysis' and 'Econometrics', with Syed. I've found his method of illustration, and pedagogical skills, easy for me to understand. Syed makes sure that I am fully engaged and understand all of the lessons and the course material. I am glad that we are practising every topic using Stata and SPSS packages.

Proficient and dependable! Syed is an outstanding researcher as well as an excellent mentor with lots of precision and patience in his coaching and in providing the feedback. I found him to be an extremely professional person with quality knowledge, immense proficiency in research skills and untiring nature. From adjusting my original research notions into well structured research hypothesis, to structuring research design and in choosing quantitative tools to suit research needs, he has been superb. Despite the fact that I spent quite some time while working on my thesis, I was surprised to see how the academic value of my dissertation improved within a short frame of time, because of his continual feedback. With his guidance I was able to experiment Autoregressive distributed lag ARDL models, Autoregressive Moving average ARMA models as well as Autoregressive Conditional Heteroscedasticity ARCH models, as part of my dissertation. I would highly recommend Syed, to students of research methods, quantitative modeling and to beginner’s in research who are in search of a mentor who will increase their capabilities drastically over a short space of time.

Extremely privileged to have learned from Syed! His relentless contribution and generous guide as a Research Specialist/Analyst/ Supervisor to academicians, and exceptional knowledge of both qualitative research and quantitative modeling: econometric and statistical analysis is just a small reflection of his capabilities and strengths.

Syed's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Syed — My fondness for teaching profession has traces at the stage of my schooling: when I and my siblings were used to ask parents about different occupations and professions, so that every one of us can choose a plausible career path, accordingly. I can clearly recall that my father was used to say that though prophets and saints opted quite a few professions, but teaching and health care are always being regarded amongst incredibly noble professions. I can say that the strong literary background of my parents predominantly appreciated my respect for teaching profession.

For quite some time, in pedagogical sciences it is being preferred that in order to ensure individual attention, small group of students have high efficacy, over large number of students. In recent times, theories of personality development further stress upon individualization. In this context we as academician require to assess personalized needs of students, with great diligence. In one on one coaching I carefully make use of case specific illustrations, examples, choice of analytical tools etc. to ensure in-depth understanding of the subject. If the subject in itself is rather complex, I make sure to simplify things.
I liked the Superprof. Portal as it gives comprehensive outreach to students, in form of one on one/ group caching and also through online consultation.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Syed — My learning and teaching interests include Quantitative methods: Mathematical modeling; Econometrics; and Statistics, core subjects in Economics such as Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Mathematical Economics, while heart of my academic proficiency lye in thesis supervision, in domain of Social Sciences and humanities. So far, I have supervised over 141 theses of Honor’s, Master’s and at M.Phil levels.
Regarding digitalized computational/ analytical skills, I am proficient in using Stata, SPSS, Minitab, Statgraphics, Maple, WinQSB, Nvivo and Turnitin, both in my teaching as well as in my research experience.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Syed — A strong background in quantitative skills is a prerequisite for quite some time as there has been an intense use of Descriptive and Inferential Statistics, Econometrics & Regression analysis, Mathematics of chance: Game Theory as well as of mathematics of optimization: Linear/ nonlinear/ integer/ goal programming etc, in academic curricula and in research. Secondly, I feel that a good teacher essentially should have good sense of observational psychology: within a short conversation he/ she should carefully assess personalized needs of the student. And last but not the least, a good communication skill: ability of making simplification; wide choice of vocabulary and an easy going conversation style.
While tutoring, the timing/ stage of seeking student response/ feedback is always very important: un till I feel that student has grasped something, the feedback of the student is always being invited with a pause, so that he/she can participate effectively, without losing confidence/ faith.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?.
Syed — I can clearly mention that I am providential enough that my father suggested me to opt Economics, Statistics and Mathematics as soon as I completed my schooling, as he viewed these subjects more close to my nature. Throughout my career, whenever my temperament and skillfulness is appreciated by my students or at International forums, I always thanked my late father, for assessing me so well. As I was duly equipped with different aspects of quantitative methods due to my long standing interest, I enjoyed quantitative proficiency not just in my teaching experience but predominately in my research experience as well.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Syed — At a young age of 24, I was invited as visiting Professor to teach Econometrics to master’s classes. I had to spend days and night before the semester start, to fully grasp the subject as well as to fully absorb lecture contents, as part of my understanding. Getting such a tough assignment at a young age developed my temperament, and in rest of my career this time investment amused me a lot.
Precisely, I can say that I have sizable experience of teaching in above mentioned subjects; lots of experience as thesis supervisor; have 13 journal publications and 14 International conference proceedings.
Potentially, I can manage to explain how students can be benefited through digitalization in education, specifically in domain of research. Secondly, I can arrange seminars on the incidence of plagiarism, how its incidence is being detected, how to avoid it naturally, and what legal complications can arise, if its incidence is established.
