I worked with James over a period of several months on a masters-level dissertation in economic policy. He was an invaluable support not just through the statistical work, but through the entire analytical process. What impressed me the most was his ability to work across disciplines and to research the best statistical solutions for the topic at hand—even those that involved econometrics. Of course, this is not entirely surprising since his own educational credentials are of such high caliber. And, in practice, he is a true perfectionist and extremely committed to those he works with.
I found James at the point of nearly giving up entirely on the dissertation. It was being undertaken within the context of a long-distance program with minimal support. Indeed, being on the East Coast, in order to work with James (and benefit from his LSE experience) I had to be tutored on the telephone. This worked out very well. With his knowledge and patience, James was able to turn the entire learning experience around for me. Ultimately, tutoring was something I looked forward to—not just useful but enjoyable. James is also extremely pleasant, kind, flexible, and fair-minded. I could not recommend him more strongly.
"Very knowledgeable about SPSS"
- Zach, Seattle, WA on 1/22/15
James was able to demonstrate SPSS to me clearly and get me back up to speed (after a six-year hiatus) in about two hours, from an initial frequencies test to more complex multivariate and cluster analysis. He delivered exactly as promised and I will use him again soon.

James seems to have been very helpful to my son in understanding statistics. He is prompt for his lessons and my son feels like he is well prepared.
"Great, patient SPSS tutor"
- Margaret, Mercer Island, WA on 12/8/14
James D. has been a great help. I had a last minute assignment that went wrong and James came to the rescue and showed me how to work it all out. He is very good with SPSS and the computer, but also very patient with the student. Thanks, James!

I loved the tutor appointment, if I need a tutor I will email him. I should be ok for now. He is very smart.
- Mr.Leon, Olympia, WA on 9/21/14
Mr. James was very professional and patient with me. I had to leave college for two years and he took his time to help brush me up on my academics as I had not applied them in a long time. He also took the time to work with me on a one on one basis to instruct me and show me some new learning techniques that will help me be a more successful student in the future. I would definitely give Mr. James the utmost respectful recommendation to anybody.
"Knowledgeable, Thorough, Responsive, and Professional "
- Patrick, Tacoma, WA on 8/27/14
The 3.5 hours I spent with James was worth every millisecond! During this time, we accomplished what I struggled to for weeks. He called me within an hour of my request and scheduled a time to collaborate virtually later the same evening. I am no statistician, but I understand data and am very knowledgeable of the data under study. I have not been this refreshed and excited in MONTHS as I suffered with data fatigue and the dissertation blues.
Going to rest a few hours now and wake up hitting the ground running to complete the remaining milestones ahead of me. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND James D! SPSS is like a second language to him. He was able to carefully listen to what I needed and tailored his solutions to those requirements. I cannot put into words my delight with his tutoring. If you are looking to get more done in 30 minutes than what you have accomplished in months, give James a call!
"Excellent Statistics for Psychology Tutor"
- Chantel, Tacoma, WA on 7/5/14
James D. was an excellent tutor. From the beginning, he was timely in responding to my request. I was having some challenges in understanding some of the material and he helped me to get a better grasp of the material. I feel he is patient and showed a genuine concern for my academic progression. I will definitely recommend him to my closest friends and family. Thank you, I appreciate your assistance.
"Highly knowledgeable and helpful"
- Max, Renton, WA on 5/31/14
James helped me understand and explore the different options I can take in analyzing the data from my thesis study and did so at my own pace. James is proficient in statistics and SPSS and has a great ability to clearly explain complex concepts. I highly recommend James as a tutor in statistical data analysis and SPSS.
- Linda, Seattle, WA on 5/15/14
James has been assisting me with stats help for my PhD work for over a year. He is very sharp, easy to work with, and very responsive.
- Lezly, Tacoma, WA on 4/26/14
James is a great tutor who takes his time to explain the concepts. I was able to achieve the grade that I wanted from my Master's level Biostatistics class. The concepts were easily explained by James, and I received great scores on my assignments. The tutoring was so valuable that I had weekly sessions. He was punctual and was able to tutor me on my schedule demands. James was always easy to reach and he responds in a timely manner. I highly recommend this tutor!
- Eva, Lakewood, WA on 3/27/14
James is absolutely amazing with helping my son in AP Statistics. My son was not excited about getting a tutor, but now he looks forward to his sessions with James.
James takes the time to listen to my son's needs and always comes well prepared.
"An excellent statistics and SPSS tutor"
- Dena, Renton, WA on 2/28/14
James provided excellent statistics, coding approaches, and SPSS tutoring. With his help I understood the concepts, and received a grade at the high end of my desired range. I feel very satisfied with his services, professionalism, and fee.
I appreciated his prompt, and thorough communication, attention to detail, availability to review, and flexibility with meeting on ground or communicating virtually. He knows how to explain complex concepts with what I needed to know, and with patience and pleasantness. He helped tone down the fear I initially felt when I first started the statistics course. I highly recommend James. I have already hired him again to assist me further with statistics.
- Nicole, Seattle, WA on 2/5/14
James definitely knew his material when it came to statistics and was very prepared. I appreciated how he took the time to research the material beforehand, so when we met we could just jump right into the assignment. He gave clear explanations, and additional examples. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is having difficulty in learning statistics.
"Exceptional Tutor!!! Rare Find!!!"
- Danielle, Lynnwood, WA on 7/3/13
I have been working with James for 3 weeks now and have had 6 lessons so far.
The class he is helping me with is university level, Psychological Statistics. I honestly cannot say enough good things about my experiences thus far, I am still in the middle of my statistics course and look forward to more upcoming sessions.
I am so fortunate to have found James because he is an absolutely remarkable tutor!! I have accomplished so much so far because of his help and knowledge.
Not only am I receiving help in understanding and going through my assignments but James puts everything that I am doing, learning and answering in perspective for me to give me a whole new and better understanding of the subject matter. He is extremely patient with me and seems to have an unlimited supply of how to address things until I fully understand.
He is very flexible with time and has been able to work with me at any time of the day for as long as I need. Currently, we are doing 2 - 3 hour sessions and accomplishing A LOT in those sessions, more than I ever would have expected. I like his tutoring method, where we work together on my assignment as opposed to him teaching me and then I do my assignment which honestly would defeat the purpose because I am already being taught in school and because I am having difficulty, James works with me pointing out where things are in my textbook and why things are the way they are whilst I complete my assignment, it is really a very unique way of tutoring which is geared more to benefit me as the student with my current assignments as well as helping me to grasp concepts that I will later remember. He focuses on exactly what I need help with and not everything as a whole unless I ask. I have learned more about Psychological Statistics from James than I have in school itself.
James has excellent communication skills with a very easy to understand British accent. He is a very nice tutor. He is patient and will take the time to explain things in many different ways until you understand without hesitation, he has a willingness to help you that other tutors I have found lack. He is very professional by treating me with respect, always being well-prepared and shows genuine care for my success. James is very punctual, right down to the exact minute.
James is very effective, efficient and has many areas of expertise, he is knowledgeable in many areas and very well educated, this can be seen within the first 5 minutes of speaking with him. In closing, I would like to say that James is absolutely phenomenal and has helped me to produce a much higher achievement within my class. Again I am very fortunate to have found him as well as grateful to him for all his help.
