My teaching methodology so far has been to boil down the concepts to their most basic application. A lot of psychological, sociological and statistics courses offer very basic ideas that are made more complex by the reality of academic language and technical jargon. The core lessons tend to get left behind, as a result. What I offer is a return to the basic building blocks of what these concepts are built upon. Once those more basic fundamentals are in place, more complex ideas can be built with ease.
My name is Joshua 'Rocky' Marks. I have designed and conducted psychological, sociological and law-based research for 3 years, with 7 poster presentations, 1 paper presentation and 1 publication. At the University of Washington Tacoma, i graduated Magna Cum Laude with a 3.96 within my field, and with extensive statistics training, I am sure i will be able to help any student within these fields.
Cancellations will be subject to half the cost of the planned lesson.
