People are the most fascinating thing in the world. psychology is the scientific study of behavior and statistics is the major tool used in the analysis of behavior. These ideas have always driven my passion for the subjects and I endeavor to pass that enthusiasm to students. I have a B. A. in psychology and a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology from the University at Buffalo. I have 14 years experience teaching at the college level. I taught psychology, cognitive psychology, research methods in psychology, consumer behavior, and marketing courses.
Psychology has a much broader scope than most people think it has and it is much more scientifically oriented than most people believe. Statistics is no where near as complex or as scary as most people expect it to be and it is far more useful than most people imagine it to be.
