« I found Paul through google search after a meeting with my supervisors, which left me anxious and scared. I knew what I needed to do but I had very little confidence in myself. After only one session with Paul, I regained my confidence, and I started progressing in my experiment and writing my disertation. Paul has a unique approach in teaching, I have never experienced such an effective way of learning before. He would explain the logic behind the methods and guide me through SPSS at the same time he would allow me to practice what we covered in the session. He was very patient and dedicated during the sessions and showed continuous interest and support till the end. After completion of the sessions, I find myself very confident with the quantitative methods, SPSS and preparing the data. I also scored the highest among my classmates. »

Paul is a fantastic tutor. Really personable, and very knowledgeable about statistics for social sciences and SPSS. He helped me work out the most appropriate analyses for my research project and spent a lot of time with me walking through the analyses and ensuring I understood the meaning of what I was looking at, as well as what to look for. Highly recommend.
