*If there is a change in my office hours, I will announce it on the Brightspace Psych Help Desk Announcements page.

I can help you make sense of the statistics material you are struggling with. I can provide you with guidance on how to work through a problem using Excel, JASP, SPSS, or by hand. I don’t have the answers to your homework, but I can help you figure out how to get there.  

Despite the seemingly all-encompassing title “Psych Help Desk,” I do not have access to your course material on Brightspace, I am not involved in grading in any way, and I can’t answer questions about things like enrollment or psychology concepts unrelated to statistics and research methods.  

If you email me to set up an appointment, help me out by explaining as much as you can what the problem is, and make sure that when you meet with me, you bring the instructions for the assignment you’re working on, your textbook and any other information that might make it easier for me to help you. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you are struggling with any statistics/research methods concepts. I am happy to help!
