Hello Barney, We just want to thank you for all the help and support you have given our son Mark. You have helped him tremendously - your tutoring excellent. Mark had excellent marks, more than any other subject he has taken and what a relief it is for him and for us too. He can now continue his course and with a lot more confidence. Thank you very much, you have certainly made a difference. Regards, Rob ( Marks parents)

"I cannot even begin to express my gratitude for Barney. I am a postgraduate student who had been a first-time SPSS user and someone absolutely terrified of statistics and maths of any kind. Prior to starting my tutorials with Barney, I knew nothing about statistics and was clueless as to how to use SPSS. Thanks to Barney’s excellent quality of tuition and professionalism I gained statistical knowledge, theoretical grounding and plenty of hands-on experience of SPSS. Barney is an extremely knowledgeable tutor and his methods of teaching maths and statistics are fantastic. Barney explained difficult issues in a simple and easy-to-understand way, illustrating complex stats by providing plenty of examples relevant to my subject area – something that most of the statistics and SPSS books and manuals recommended by my university failed to do. But perhaps most importantly of all – Barney is a really friendly tutor who made me feel relaxed and comfortable despite my repeatedly silly questions and limited mathematical abilities. After just a couple of tutorials with Barney I found myself actually enjoying the subject which I had previously been dreading and having nightmares about. The results: I achieved top-marks in my statistics assignments. Barney is very accommodating and flexible, prepared to help out with last-minute panic moments - something that as a disorganised student on a tight schedule I really appreciate. I can honestly say that Barney has greatly helped me to overcome my statistics-SPSS phobia. I now have the confidence to utilise all aspects of quantitative methods in my current research and to look forward to using stats in my future academic projects. Thank you so much Barney!"
