so here's the 3 session review.
semantics out of the way first. Gordon Is a knowledgeable player and a very guy.
: Knowledge is great but without application it is worthless in a teaching aspect. fortunately i found Gordon to be very articulate as well as concise with the information he provided. He was able to break down examples and theory so that it was simple and easily accessible for me as a student.
Interaction was never a problem and gordon was very adaptable to any particular method of coaching i was looking to use. And i'll add that the information came thick and fast and never was he stuck for words when answering questions or giving his own advice.
I in short i think Gordon really does make Hu a lot easier for people.
: No negatives as such, but i think that Gordons statistical knowledge is likely undervalued.
My last session with Gordon discussing the variants within statistics was worth a lot more than i would have ever expected. So if i could recommend an improvement i would suggest that Gordon could sell this quality more to a certain proportion of his students that would benefit from it.
I will likely be looking for more sessions in future, It was extremely helpful.
