About me

My expertise and experience are much greater than you are likely to get with many other private tutors. My background is in Psychology (BSc) and Sociology (MA and PhD) but I've taught students from a variety of different social science backgrounds on the following modules (as well as many others) as a full-time Teaching Fellow and Associate Lecturer at the University of York:

Undergraduate Social Research Methods
Introduction to Quantitative Methods
Advanced Quantitative Methods

I convened a 150 student Social Research Methods module for 3 years and set and marked undergraduate and postgraduate coursework and assignments on a variety of different topics relating to research methods, SPSS, and data analysis. I've marked thousands of pieces of undergraduate coursework, as well as Masters coursework using advanced data analysis methods, such as Regression, Cluster Analysis and Factor Analysis.

As a supervisor at York I have supervised around 40 undergraduate dissertations, and about 10 Masters dissertations. A good proportion of these students have achieved 1st and starred 1st grades.

I also remain an active researcher within academia. My areas of scholarly interest are health, food, and quantitative and innovative methods. Some of the recent academic articles I have published in peer reviewed journals include:

Chappell, P., Tse, M., Zhang, M. and Moore, S., 2017. Using GPS Geo-tagged Social Media Data and Geodemographics to Investigate Social Differences: A Twitter Pilot Study. Sociological Research Online, 22(3), pp.38-56.

Jenkins, L., Cosgrove, J., Chappell, P., Kheder, A., Sokhi, D. and Reuber, M., 2016. Neurologists can identify diagnostic linguistic features during routine seizure clinic interactions: results of a one-day teaching intervention. Epilepsy & Behavior, 64, pp.257-261.

Uprichard, E., Nettleton, S. and Chappell, P., 2013. ‘Food hates’ over the life course: an analysis of food narratives from the UK Mass Observation Archive. Appetite, 71, pp.137-143.

On top of all this, I'm also very friendly, approachable, and keen to help! Also modest. Get in touch and we can discuss how I can support you in your studies.

Highly recommended

Written by Ellen J
I highly recommend Paul Chappell, he is very approachable and friendly but more importantly he is extremely knowledgeable around SPSS and Stats offering the correct support tailored to each individual. I would not have graduated without him.

Outstanding tutor, highly recommended

Written by Merran T
It's been my privilege to work alongside and in collaboration with Paul for the past five years. As a colleague in the sociology department where I work, he has been a source of inspiration and had led by example as someone who is deeply committed to his students - both in terms of their academic outcomes and their personal and professional development. Paul coordinated and taught (among other things) social research methods modules at undergraduate and postgraduate level and provided a wide range of students with one-to-one supervision, including supporting their independent dissertation projects. Paul is hugely knowledgeable in a range of social research methods, with a specialism in quantitative methods. As a qualitative researcher, I have been very fortunate to have Paul to turn to in this regard. He was a co-researcher on a recent funded research project, which combined qualitative and quantitative methods. Paul was exceptional in how he handled the process of 'translation' across the different approaches, and his ability to explain his statistical work to the qualitative members of the team was impressive. He has an excellent capacity for explaining complex concepts in a way that is easy to understand, without losing the complexity. He is level-headed, very calm under pressure, wonderful to work with, warm, thoughtful and supportive. I recommend him without reservation.

Outcome:
Paul has routinely received excellent feedback from his students and is sorely missed by his colleagues back in his old department!
