    Question about "for example"

    Dear Teachers,

    Did I use "for example" in the sentences below correctly?

    The classes that I am attending help me a lot. For example in studying psychology, I learn how people think.

    The first sentence uses "for example" ok - it would be better still if you add the comma and said "by studying..."

    The second sentence is wrong.
