Vi har flere flotte lærere. Rangert etter profilens kvalitet og erfaring innen deres felt. Syed vil med glede organisere deres første Leksehjelpkurs.
Following are elaborations on how I approach and regulate my research supervision experience:
For researchers’ who plan to do academic research for the first time, it is important how to devise a literature search strategy, so that a rather naïve research notion may be furnished into a well-structured proposition and the hypothesis. In order to do that effectively, 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.
The prime focus is laid upon how to choose an appropriate research design that can closely approximate the statement of the research hypothesis. Constantly, we are in the urge to make the statement of the research hypothesis, more scientific in appearance and testable. 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.
While furnishing the research design for a proposed study, I carefully inspect that the choice of methodological tools, justify the needs of the data and the data instruments, thereby minimizing biases that arise due to the choice of inappropriate research designs.
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).
Special emphasis is laid upon how to structure the thesis into a detailed table of contents, how to conduct and write a review of the literature, in a way so that the incidence of plagiarism may naturally be avoided.
How to make choices of the data collection methods among primary data collection in form of designing semi-structured or fully structured questionnaires, deciding about the selection of variables for specific analytical needs using databases of statistical information in a time series analysis, and how to pool the data.
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 Stata, SPSS, Minitab, and Nvivo, for analysis of the data.
How to report findings and results, how to interpret results, and how to specify limitations of research.
Task management and scheduling research activities, using Gantt charts, etc.

Perfekt! Perfekt! Superb teacher, excellent coach and a reliable mentor. Fortunately, I managed to seek his guidance on methodological issues including modelling of the panel data, using varying and fixed coefficients approach. It was a nice experience for me to practice everything on Stata software. Thanks
- Svar fra Syed : A person with good manners and determination to acquire quantitative skills.
Perfekt! A passionate person with lots of academic expertise and the ability of communicate effectively through examples and case studies. His diversity and depth of knowledge in Social sciences, humanities and quantitative research methods, enables him to guide on rather complex issues. This was the second time that I sought his expertise and coaching. I can mention that students who are doing thesis or in process of learning quantitative skills, he is a matchless choice.
- Svar fra Syed : Capable person with the drive to seek diversity in competing methodological tools.
Perfekt! I can absolutely recommend Syed to students that are struggling with quantitative methods and statistics (or just if you want to extend your knowledge in these topics). He is a really good teacher and explain things in an easy manner. I have learned a lot from the tutoring with him.
- Svar fra Syed : Good hardworking person with good learning attitude.

Super experience with Syed, while we worked on how how to analyze the qualitative and quantitative data using SPSS. It was great to see how the analysis is specified, and how results are interpreted. This was my first experience to learn how numbers in ANOVA, and regression have a meaning. Great experience to learn from a gifted teacher.
Jeg er veldig fornøyd med undervisningen jeg har fått. Dette er en meget profesjonell og kunnskapsrik lærer som virkelig kan sine saker. Syed hadde gjort et grundig forarbeid før vi møttes og detføltes veldig betryggende. I tillegg var han meget tålmodig og han har en god evne til å formidle sin kunnskap. Jeg fikk akkurat den hjelpen jeg trengte! Jeg kommer helt sikkert til å kontakte Syed for hjelp i fremtiden. Anbefaler denne læreren på det aller sterkeste.
I reached out to Syed because I needed help with descriptive statistics, regression models and the use of Stata. Already after the first class I gained a much better understanding of quantitative reasoning. Syed is a tutor with amazing pedagogical skills and can explain things in a simple way, so you will understand everything even if your English is not on a great level. He is also a very calm and knowledgeable person. He tailored our lessons to my needs and helped with my assignments. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a professional help with quantitative methods course.
Great experience with Syed:
an excellent teacher, very humble, and makes you feel confident in your skills, just after a few lessons.
Being a student of Psychology, quantitive methods and statistics are amongst the core courses of my studies. I started the lessons with dread and had no prior knowledge of quantitative methods, statistics, and SPSS. Syed made things easy to understand and apply. Now I am very confident and optimistic.
I highly recommend Syed if you need to learn Statistics and SPSS for Social Studies and Psychology
I had a great experience with Syed as my Superprof teacher. I needed help with an assignment in a course about statistical methods, and his explanations of regression models and how to interpret statistical data really helped me both in understanding the assignment but also in applying the knowledge I had acquired. He is pedagogical and knowledgeable about his subject and has a good teaching method adapted to the needs of the student. I recommend him to anyone looking for help with their statistics course, whether on an advanced level or entry level.
Superb! Nice and humble person with lots of knowledge and pedagogical skills. Highly recommended for quantitative methods, statistics and the applied regression. Bra
Fantastisk! Great experience of learning Econometric models: Poisson regression and the Negative Binomial regression in context of peace and conflict. How Syed suggested model specification and interpreted model estimates was new to me. Takk
While working on my master thesis in sports physiotherapy, I got invaluable help from him in applied regression modelling, using SPSS. In choosing suitable regression models, validating, and evaluating models he was of great help and showed excellent pedagogic skills in making complex things simple. He was engaged, motivating and always made me feel that my understanding of the topic was his first priority. Very grateful for his help.
Now, during my MBA studies it was my first priority to seek help from him again when I needed help with quantitative analysis and decision making, regression modeling and how to report the findings. He showed outstanding commitment to his work, always structured in his teachings, and made sure that I understood both what was on the surface and beneath. Always professional and is highly recommended.
Superb experience of learning, as I grasped lots of thoughtful know-how from your guidance ! It really helped me understand the difficult stages of my research proposal and concepts of quantitative methods, such as regression and ANOVA. The way you explain things is clear, direct and self explanatory. I really like your style of guidance as it makes me comfortable especially at difficult stages of my thesis. Now I am really looking forward to the next sessions on the analysis/ interpretation part.
I learnt 'Advanced Regression analysis' from Syed and later, while preparing for a Research proposal for my master's dissertation I sought his help in application of Stata. He has excellent command and strong foresight in furnishing research designs, in assessing academic worth of methodological choices, and how to advance a rather naive research notion into a well structured hypothesis. He has published in rather diversified and interdisciplinary domains of social sciences and humanities.
Much recommended for beginner's in research and for persons who are struggling with quantitative underpinnings of research designs
Positive, composed and determined person, with good aptitude of quantitative reasoning! I sought guidance from Syed, while preparing for an aptitude test at a financial firm. I had to prepare topics in Mathematics, Descriptive Statistics and in Bayesian Probability, which Syed planned in a manner that I gained lots of confidence and proficiency in around 2 weeks’ time. He is such a skilled and resourceful person. A much dedicated person who recognizes stakes of students in a respectable manner.
Syed is passionate, competent and stable headed. Manages time and difficult situations ,effectively. Highly recommended for trouble shooting as part of research/ thesis or in domain of quantitative modeling.
Syed er en fantastisk veileder, som er fleksibel med valg av sin benyttede teknikk, ettersom han innser mangel på studenten sin: lærer matematiske verktøy med forklaring om deres relevans, veldig forståelsesfull og omsorgsfull mann, som bruker tid og forklarer emner i pensum på en enkel og god måte. Til å begynne med var jeg skeptisk til å tilbringe timer med ham gjennom webkameraet, men han klarte ting ypperlig. Det var som om jeg var sammen med ham under samme tak. Syed er en veileder jeg vil anbefale på det sterkeste, og du vil ikke angre et øyeblikk.
An incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and so calm person! So much support I received along the way and with positive feedback which gave me the confidence that no matter how difficult some courses are, it goes with right help. I sought help in quantitative methods to ensure my proficiency. Everything just seems so simple when right person helps and explain it. This right person was Syed. Best teacher.
Passionate and Superb! Syed is a competent teacher with diversity and depth. I managed to grasp many technical concepts in domain of advanced regression. Highly recommended for quantitative methods and economics courses!
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.
Syed er fabelaktig og utmerket i sin coaching og problemløsning innenfor forskning og kvantitative metoder. Han er veldig dedikert.
Han gir faglig støtte, veiledning og hjelp til problemløsing på en enestående måte. Det er ingen tvil om at hans faglige kompetanse er på et veldig høyt nivå, og han er samvittighetsfull og ryddig, og jeg opplevde ham som oppriktig opptatt av å ønske og gjøre sitt ytterste for å hjelpe meg til å bli så god som mulig. Han svarte raskt på alle mine henvendelser, noe som gjorde at jeg hadde en god fremgang i arbeidet mitt med emnet. Han har en god skriftlig fremstillingsevne, og det er til stor hjelp når det gjelder veiledning med tanke på oppgaver og / eller forelesninger.
Jeg anbefaler studenter på forskning og kvantitative metoder om å søke veiledning fra han.
There is a saying of Steve Jobs “It didn’t make sense to hire smart people and tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do.” The competent’ is the expression that comes to mind when I think about Syed. ”He is that smart avid person who inspires everyone in organization with his intellectual, creative, responsible, calm, witty, cool headed attitude. He was second to me in a research project. Every morning he used to come with innovative ideas and strategies. He was really a source of motivation and inspiration at that time, and we applied many of his tactics in our client’s financial and strategy plans. I was always looking forward to enjoy Syed’s capacity to influence a meeting and get people on board with his analytical ideas—even people who were initially on completely different pages.” As a team leader, responsible professional Syed earns my highest respect and recommend.”
I can absolutely recommend Syed to students that are struggling with quantitative methods and statistics (or just if you want to extend your knowledge or skills in applied aspects of quantitative skills). He is a really good teacher and explain things in an easy manner. I have learned a lot from the tutoring with him.
Syed is passionate, enthusiastic and above all, quite a stable headed person with natural inclination to approach rather complex situations, with clarity. His knowledge and exposure to deal with quantitative research seem to be deeply grounded in understanding of econometrics, statistics and mathematics, and he is used to demonstrate expertise in this regard tremendously and repeatedly. His worthy guidance, and comments may especially be seen as invaluable for research students, persons who are doing thesis for the first time in their life, and for those who seek guidance in quantitative methods.
Mr. Syed is hardworking, well organized and carries good communication skills. I have always enjoyed his lectures and formal/ informal discussion sessions. I found him very keen to develop academic and presentation skills in his students. He carries a good combination of quantitative, analytical and presentation skills. Syed has an excellent command in disciplines of business, economic theory, statistics, computing and applied econometrics.
Veldig fornøyd. Faglig sterk med lang erfaring. Forklarer pensum på en lett og forståelig måte og har en god struktur. Anbefales på det sterkeste.
Syed has always been very kind, helpful, and cooperative both in academic and personal capacities. He takes good care of his students and colleagues in academic and moral fronts as well as in their professional careers. The exceptionally well carried out role as a mentor, place him in a unique and ideal position to lead good academic organizations in teaching and research roles.
According to my information he was one of early teachers who introduced the use of statistical and mathematical software in the academia of the Punjab. I feel proud to say, I have learned basics of Econometrics from him.
As a teacher and researcher, I found him very hardworking, efficient, diligent, resourceful and full of energy. He has earned his respect among his teachers, peers, colleagues, students, friends and family due to his cooperative behavior, thought provoking arguments, resilience to embrace tough situations, good judgement and decision making. He always dig deep into the concepts and make it comprehensible to his students. He is a good listener and extra ordinary speaker. He has researched and supervised in very diverse topics of Economics and Business which shows his untiring work and commitment with his students and institution. His analytical and quantitative skills are at par excellent. He has the great ability to motivate and inspire students and fellow researcher. His ability to lead a team is exceptional. His team mates and students consider him a tough work master but still gravitates around him. He has been very focused and meticulous about the subject matter. He take his objectives very seriously and enjoy his work.
I very strongly recommend Syed, assuring that he will prove to be a great addition and asset.
Extremely privileged to have learned from Mr Syed! He is an epitome of knowledge to countless learners and a mentor for many, including me. 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 strength.

When did your interest in this subject and for private tuition begin?
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.
Tell us more about the subject you teach, about the topics you enjoy sharing with students (and possibly those you like less)!
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.
Tell us about your idols, whether it was a teacher who left a deep mark or a work of art that inspired you.
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.
Which, in your opinion, are the necessary quality to be an expert in your field?
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.
An anecdote related to your subject or education you want to tell?
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.
Despite your multi-talents, maybe you also had some difficulties at school? Tell!
I am bit skeptical that in last around one decade or so, due to extensive use of digital/ mobile gadgets and social media, we have witnessed that the ability of students to concentrate on academics has adversely been affected. Simultaneously, the habit of consulting books and libraries also witnessed slackness.
Help us to get to know you better by sharing your passions (which you might share a day via Superprof).
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.
What makes you a Superprof?
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 in the Norwegian Database of Scientific publication (NSD); was invited as International guest at Peradeniya International Economics Research Symposium in 2014; worked as a consultant on two contractual projects; and last but not the least, I have 14 International conference proceedings.
