Mustafa M. Eisa's Summary

Currently en route to completing the microeconomics and econometrics core of the economics PhD at the University of Chicago. Thereafter, I may continue with the economics doctorate—likely focusing on econometrics—or switch to doctoral programs in either finance or statistics. I also intend to spend any free time honing my skills with softwares taught in finance, statistics, and computer science curricula, that is, Python, MatLab, R, C++, and SQL.

  • Adjunction: Tutoring Programs and Academic Performance

    • Berkeley, CA
    • October 2013
    Authors: Mustafa M. Eisa

    Data on 17,188 university students enrolled in five different calculus courses was used to estimate the effects of a tutoring program on grading outcomes. An ordinal probit regression model reveals that participation in the program is associated with a significant decrease in the probability of receiving a D or F letter grade and an even more significant increase in the probability of receiving an A or A+ letter grade. Pathways to causality were not established due to the limitations of the dataset. However, a difference-in-difference estimator suggests that there is a slightly positive, latent treatment effect that follows program participants into the next calculus course they take.
