Thanks to your mom for connecting us! Really enjoyed working with you! Let know if I can be of further help!

Statistic Tutoring

Janice helped me tremendously by providing me with great study tips. Her suggestions of concentrating on the equations, using previous tests as a guide for mid term was excellent. She guided me in looking for key words in the questions and how to break down the information so comprehension was easy. She restored my confidence level by the tips and advise she gave me during our sessions. I will continue to seek her help and advise and also recommend others to try her because she is patient, and does not make you feel bad about yourself but gives you hope.

Most Excellent Tutor

I am a doctoral candidate with an extreme fear of statistics and the use of the Software Program for the Social Sciences (SPSS). Janice has guided me through the SPSS program and has instilled into me the confidence to effectively use this program to collect date, input data, run analysis, and understand the output. With her unsurpassed level of knowledge Janice is guiding me through advanced statistics bringing me to a level of understanding that I have not experienced with any other source. Janice's demeanor is very calming and soothing. When I finish a session with Janice I feel like a weight has been lifted from my mind. She has definitely improved my knowledge and ability to understand and use advance statistics in my doctoral research. I will definitely use Janice as a confidant as I progress into my doctoral study. I highly recommend her to any student looking for a high quality tutor in the field of statistics and the use of the SPSS software. She is excellent and worth every penny of her time. She is always prompt and well prepared to conduct a meaningful session.
