Information about Jason
Hello, my name is Jason and I tutor undergraduates and AS students on psychology, SPSS, research methods and general study skills.
A little about me:
Prior to my return to education, I had a long and successful career in IT. I was an IT/IS manager for a very large market research company (Network Research and Marketing Limited) in London as well as Director of Operations for PC Solutions. During this time, I worked on high-level projects for a diverse set of clients including the National Library of Wales, the Thompson Group, House of Lords, Microsoft, Intel, and Volvo amongst others.
I returned to university to undertake a BSc in Counselling Studies and Psychology (BPS approved), leaving with a First Class (Hons) degree. I then achieved a distinction in Research Methods in Psychology (MSc), and as of October 2019 I am working towards a PhD in Detection and Prevention of Online Child Sexual Abuse: Understanding childrens vulnerabilities and strengths, researching my first book on Parametric and non-parametric tests by hand as well as providing consulting services in relation to protecting children from being groomed online.
Post degree, I worked within the charity sector for Waless primary mental health charity Hafal, working on a stakeholder inspired, National Lottery funded project advising the current Welsh Government administration, the NHS and organisations within the public and private sector on mental health policies in relation to psychological (talking) therapies.

Feedback For Jason (13)
Mr Jason was a very good teacher. He is very knowledgeable and he does his best to help his students. Best tutor Ive had !
By far the best tutor i have had! I would 100% recommend to anyone needing help with Psychology. He explains everything so well and definitely goes the extra mile to help you with whatever you need. I struggled with SPSS and i can`t thank him enough for helping me understand it and making me more confident with using it in the future.
Jason helped me with my dissertation. His feedback was very detailed and it definitely helped me to make necessary improvements.
An amazing tutor. Helped me with my stats assignment last minute and managed to get a better grade than I could`ve hoped for. Thank you so so so much, Jason. Really appreciate it.
Jason was a star, very rapid response and could not have been more skilled or helpful
Jason was so helpful in looking at my SPSS data for my dissertation - so glad I got in touch with him or I wouldve been lost! Thanks Jason. :)
Jason is a great tutor. I probably would have failed my assignment without his help and guidance. He is also happy to go the extra mile for his students whether that me and arranging lessons late at night or extending sessions to make sure you are confident enough. Highly recommended.
Professional and friendly, he explained concepts well and I intend to have more lessons with Jason in the future.
A genuine tutor that is fully innvested. Jason is willing to go above and beyond to assist and empower his students.
Very professional and courteous tutor. Patient with great practical experience with SPSS. Highly recommended.
We met for my final dissertation and he has been a lifesaver. Would recommend.
Jason, helped my daughter with some degree level work and she now has a better understanding of the topics. Jason was punctual and professional at all times.
I was completing my dissertation with little understanding of SPSS. Jason was amazing and helped me more than i could have asked for, without Jason`s help i feel that i would have failed my dissertation. I would recommend him to anyone, and again, thank you so much.
