Consultation Hours (Student Rate)

StatsWhisperer takes a special interest in working with students who are often learning the fundamentals of statistical research through completing a thesis, dissertation, or an equivalent program requirement.

Subsequently, we have set aside a limited number of consultation hours that are available at a special student rate, which is approximately half the usual academic rate (50%) to make services more affordable for students. Hours may be retained in 8, 16, 24, and 32 hour blocks.

Commentary from prior students includes:

I highly recommend William O’Bannon. I contracted Dr. O’Bannon to work with me as a statistical consultant on my research as I worked toward earning my DNP. The quality of Bill’s work was exceptional. I felt entirely confident in his knowledge and expertise in research methods, statistics, and analysis. His analysis was very thorough and he produced exactly what I needed to answer my research questions. His write-up and summarization of my findings was excellent, with an appropriate integration of text and supporting tables.

Bill was always available to me, very responsive, and was great with follow-up. The way in which Bill explained all of the statistical methods he used and the results of the analysis was clear and understandable. Bill was a pleasure to work with – always pleasant and sincere, with a great positive attitude. Even in the final hours pre-defense, he was available for support and questions.

I am sure he would be an ideal asset to anyone needing a methodological or statistical consultant for their dissertation or research project. I certainly plan on continuing to work with him regarding future research projects.
