James is the tutor I've been needing for my graduate level biostats and SPSS courses. Thank goodness I've found him. He is patient, thorough in his teaching and cares that I understand all that I'm doing. I ask questions freely and always feel supported. I look forward to each session and am motivated to learn! Thank you James!
James helped me build confidence in my answers and reminded me of the fundamental needs of mastering a class. He is wise and uses the many features of the program to help me visualize math I did not see.
James is knowledgeable and helpful. He helped me create an APA designed research assignment. Formatting and proper use of scientific terminology was introduced and applied.
Taught me about ANOVA and would love to learn from him again. And we had an hour of discussion about Statistics. Awesome lesson. Thanks for the wonderful class.
James helped me with my SPSS project. He was so helpful, knowledgeable and patient. He wants to make sure you understand what he's helping you with and not just doing it for you.
We are reviewing binomial distributions and Poisson distributions.
James takes the time to explain things I do not understand , even if they are very basic. He is patient and goes through the exercises and problems with me.
James is very understanding, and understands adult learners. He is also very my technical difficulties, and is patient with me. He even bought my test book so that he could thoroughly assist me in my classes! He is an experienced educator, and knows how to restate my biostats exercises in a more simple way for me to understand. He is an asset to Wyzant!
The positive word choices that could be used to describe Mr. James are to numerous to list. After struggling with my current statistics course for the last five weeks, I finally accepted the fact that I was getting know where real quick. I was reluctant to utilize an online tutor but Mr. D absolutely extinguished any fear as soon as he began explaining the material. He is extremely knowledgeable, clearly loves to tutor people, even those as challenged with statistics as myself, and provides constructive criticism in a way that does not make you feel dejected. In just two sessions, he has helped me to better understand statistics, the SPSS program, and APA expectations. Furthermore, his gentle manner and approach to teaching makes our sessions enjoyable . Because of the positive experience I have had thus far, I will definitely utilize his services in the future and recommend him to fellow students who may also be struggling.
Managed to teach this statistic challenged individual how to input data into SPSS as well as analyze the data. Mr. D. is very patient and makes a difficult subject pleasant. I now have a better understanding and appreciation for statistics.
Thank You Mr. D.
James was very patient in explaining how descriptive statistics and how frequently observations occur with different variables and how to measure the central tendency and variability to quantitative structure we are building.
Very nice and is committed to helping me :). He is a really good teacher and I enjoy working with him. He breaks info down very well and has a really open schedule which is great!
James explained some basics about statistics, SPSS, and both quantitative research and qualitative research design. He was able to communicate to me a visual mental model of my research design. This guy has skills!
Last night we worked through the scope and sampling procedures that are proper for my study. I gained a lot of insight into some changes that are needed to make this a do-able study!
You cannot do better with a statistics tutor then James. He assisted me on Doctoral level multiple regression analysis problems. He really knows his stuff and he makes very complex subject matter easier to understand . He is a delightful, patient tutor who really wants to help you! I will continue to work with James anytime I need help with statistical analysis !!
I had a fear of statistics after returning to school for my PhD, I had to pass it. I contact Jim after four weeks into my eight week course for assistance. The material was getting more complicated and I needed support fast. Jim was available, kind and helped me understand the concepts. I would complete the assignments to the best of my ability, send them to him in advance and he would clarify and edit when needed. I'm so grateful for his help. I'm finishing the course with an A!! I will be reaching out to Jim again for sure when I need a statistics angel!
He taught me how to go through SPSS data, how to put it together and analyze the information. he is helping me understand how to put a research paper together for a Stats graduate level course. Very patient and clear explanations. He is very helpful.
James has been an excellent tutor - flexible, and going out of his way to make things as convenient as possible for me. I admire James' patience; he took time to understand my needs as a student and addressed my questions with great care. Highly recommended!
Dr. D is simply amazing! He is very patient, helpful, and kind! I needed help with Educational Statistics and not only does he explain everything in detail, but he also helps you with your assignments! He is also very understanding and knowledgeable! I highly recommend his services, you will not be disappointed!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
