I am Brian Harward, PhD – your new Stats Friend!

I’m highly competent, easy to understand, and most of all a nice person you’ll be glad to meet. I’ve combined my experiences as a University Professor, Statistics Consultant, and Organizational Psychologist to help organizations and students implement their best ideas with incredible ease.  I most enjoy seeing the resulting success that comes from high quality research work.

More background…

While teaching statistics I discovered how to explain difficult concepts in ways that are easy to understand. Next thing I knew the office staff was sending students with stats questions to me, then I was walking them through their projects. Through this I learned how to be a liaison between the statistics world and those who fear it (or just aren’t interested). I truly enjoy bringing clarity to my clients, watching them impress their committees, bosses, and friends. Now with years of experience I am happy to have found my niche, and look forward to helping more clients than ever before.

I received my PhD in Organizational Psychology from Walden University in Minneapolis Minnesota, and also studied previously at Wright State University in Dayton Ohio. My most recent employment was as Director of Research at San Diego University for Integrative Studies. In this role I participated in all Thesis and Dissertation defenses as the on-site methodology expert and guided students from the beginning of their project to the end.
