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!

Very knowledgeable about Biostatistics and SPSS and very patient and great at explaining!

James was available when I needed immediate help with an assignment. He was very helpful and patient, and was great at going though the steps and working out the problems. I highly recommend James!

Studying for Final Stats exam

Wonderfully knowledgeable and very patient. A great teacher. I wish that I had spoken with James earlier in my course as he is able to break down the subject into smaller more understandable parts and then build on them.

Lynette, 1 lesson with James

Knows The Stuff!

I am currently in the dissertation process of my doctorate. James was able to assist me in understanding my own research design. HE quickly grasped my point, and was able to correct my direction with understanding and clarity. I feel fortunate to have James on my team. He was able to explain the need for and configure my a priori power assessments. Previously James helped me get through and pass my graduate level stats III course. He is a life saver.

For all psychology students in statistics

This gentleman knows his statistics for psychology. He is a good tutor when it comes to organization, focusing on one concept at a time, knows SPSS and other statistical software, and encourages those who work with him to apply statistics to things that you are interested in in the real world. I recommend him for undergrads and grads!

Proficient and patient tutor!

James does a superb job of explaining the world of statistics to me. He responds to me promptly if I am stuck on a problem, or if I just need to review. With his help, I am not so "intimated" by statistics, especially because James tailors his responses several different ways so that I can grasp the concepts behind the formulas successfully. Also, he is friendly and patient. With his guidance and expertise, I am confident that I will do well in this class. Thank you, James!

Denee, 6 lessons with James

Our daugher is very posive regarding James. I have the impression that James is an excellent tutor for her

The reports from James correspond to that what James taught to our daughter. We agree to his plan. Important is the conversation and she will become more courage to speak. We appreciate James as tutor very much.

Gerhard, 10 lessons with James

Excellent stats knowledge

James worked with me on my dissertation, which received final approval last week. He has also coached me for my orals, which happen next week. Although I took many stats classes during my curriculum, James was an excellent instructor. He made sense of the reasons and could explain the complexity of stats at my level. Thank you James for a job well done.

Richard, 7 lessons with James

Just the help I needed

James is very pleasant, professional and dependable. I appreciate all the help he has given me in my Post Masters Statistics. I would recommend him 100%.
