Service Description

Statistics
I have experience as a Teaching Assistant for basic statistics and research methods courses in the Social Sciences. This involved creating lesson plans and leading statistics labs in which I taught statistical methods to university students. I also have experience as a statistics tutor.
I can determine the appropriate way to analyse your data, then complete the analysis using either SPSS or R, and provide a complete write-up of the results.

Academic Writing
I am an experienced academic writer with 4 peer reviewed publications (see CV for a complete list and article references). I am most confident in APA formatting (commonly used in the Social Sciences), but I have experience in reformatting papers to suit journal-specific requirements. I can write academic articles for you, or proof-read articles that have already been written.

Grant Writing
I am experienced in writing grants for the Tri-Council (NSERC, SSHRC, CIHR) as well as smaller, institution specific grants.

Research Ethics
I have experience writing Ethics proposals, as well as evaluating research proposals as to whether they comply with institution ethics requirements. If given your institution's specific requirements, I can provide feedback on what methods might result in concerns from the Ethics Board.
