About James

I am a British citizen and I am a recent immigrant to the US.

I have a degree in international relations from the London School of Economics, and for most of my life I have worked as a writer. I have had several books published by mainstream publishers, and I have written articles in the UK national press.

I have undergraduate and masters degrees in psychology, as well as a TEFL qualification from the University of Washington.

I can teach statistics, particularly from a social sciences point of view, and I am comfortable with both SPSS and R.

I have taught English in Slovakia and Poland, and I have also taught an undergraduate psychology course.

As a teacher I am patient and knowledgeable. I set myself high standards, and I know how to present complicated information in a simple and straightforward way.

At the same time I am able to teach psychology, of course with particular emphasis on statistics!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Biostatistics

My main tutoring subject is statistics, and many of my students are working in healthcare, and are focusing on subjects such as epidemiology. I am familiar with odds ratios, survival studies and control groups, and to further my knowledge, I have taken and passed online courses in biostatistics. Furthermore, I am familiar with R, a statistical program which is widely used by biostatisticians.

Social Studies

I have a thorough grounding in social studies. I have a degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and I have studied politics and economics. Furthermore, I have two degrees in psychology, which have included components relating to social psychology. At the same time, I am familiar with the statistics that are commonly used to understand society and its problems.

Sociology

I have a thorough grounding in the social sciences. I have a degree from the London School of Economics, and I have two degrees in psychology. These last two degrees had a quantitative bases, and allowed me to study social psychology. I understand the basics of sociology, and I am able to tutor the subject at an introductory level.

SPSS

I am up to speed in the main modules of SPSS, and I have a wide experience of providing one-to-one tuition in the use and application of this program. I am very patient, and I always tailor my tuition to fit the individual needs of my students.
