Jim McGinley helped me learn how to use some statistical tools (like MPlus) to analyze data that I had never used before. With Jim’s help and support, I am now much more confident using new data analysis techniques, which has improved my own research and my confidence in reviewing papers. Jim is clear, patient, and extremely helpful. It is amazing to have someone that you can go to with statistics questions and trust that he will spend the time to help you become confident approaching the problem on your own. I found working with Jim a much more efficient use of my time than trying to learn the software and techniques on my own, and I will not hesitate to reach out to Jim in the future if I ever want to discuss statistical issues with another highly skilled person.
