I am currently a graduate student working towards a masters degree in education. Prior to this degree, I earned my master's degree in clinical psychology, where I gained significant experience in statistics and statistical analysis.
I currently tutor students in business statistics, social sciences statistics, and other areas of math such as algebra, pre-algebra, pre-calculus, and trigonometry. I aid some clients in preparing for the Graduate Record Examination. I am a reliable tutor who always seeks to help the student understand course material as best as possible. I will work hard to ensure your satisfaction.
I think students find my patience, persistence and an encouraging environment motivating! I very much enjoy statistics and math, so it doesn't even feel like a job for me!
I am happy to accommodate to students when needed and I am very flexible!
I have knowledge and advanced experience with all Algebraic techniques. I am certain that I can accommodate to your needs!
Algebra 2, like Algebra 1, uses similar concepts. An integral part of the learning process begins with Algebra 1 skills and develops into Algebra 2 skills. Algebra 2 is fundamental for successful knowledge of the ACT/SAT skill set needed for testing!
I have 4 years' experience working with children with developmental disabilities and autism. All of my experience was oriented towards a behavior modification perspective through behavioral reward systems. I have found reward based systems to be highly effective in teaching children with autism and I have had a lot of success just through the identification of positive reinforcers for each individual child.
I have worked with many students in algebra to improve their grades in both high school and college. Algebra can be complex and it is important to understand quantitative reasoning and processes during the learning process. I have seen many students who were struggling find great improvement as a result of having a tutor to work with them after school or class. Algebra is something I enjoy myself, as well as, helping students enjoy themselves!
I have been an avid Macintosh user for the past 6 years. I know the ins and outs of working with Macs versus PCs, and I am confident I can help any new or experienced user with issues related to using them.
Microsoft Excel is a complex program when evaluating topics such as math and statistics. I have worked with numerous students in the business statistics arena, as well as, had experience of my own in both Excel and other statistics program such as Statistics for the Social Sciences or SPSS, which is used by most professions in the medical field. I am confident that I can aid you in understanding Excel, in addition to providing insight into the overall comprehension of statistics!
Powerpoint is an integral part of the collegiate process. Moreover, it will be needed in high school classes alike. Knowledge in this programming will aide any scholar in the pursuit for success, whether technical or collegiate. It is an asset to both have and utilize as a motivated individual who desires success in any field!
I have knowledge and advanced experience with Microsoft Word on both Apple computers and PCs. I am certain that I can accommodate to your needs!
Success in pre-algebra incorporates both algebraic and previously established mathematical concepts. I have always enjoyed the problem solving value of math. I enjoy tutoring math because I love to see how other young students are able to learn and then apply these concepts in their own mathematical solving skills. Success for students means success for me!
I have a bachelor's degree in Psychology and a master's degree in clinical psychology, so I am very experienced in all matters related to psychology.
The SAT Math may seem daunting to students who are first facing the test. I know I felt a bit apprehensive when I first took college entrance exams. However, I have the unique ability to both provide sound advice and aid in understanding the mathematical concepts that other tutors might not possess. I was very successful on the college entrance exams in which I took and I am very adept at the mathematical concepts implored on the exams.
SPSS is a complicated software program. Trust me, I know! I have aided numerous graduate students throughout the process of understanding and setting up complex statistical questions. I am also well versed in interpreting and describing statistical data output. This may sound daunting, but I am an great asset to aid you!
Some specific areas of analysis I am privy to are, but not limited to Correlation, Linear Regression, Factor Analysis, ANOVA, Multivariate Analysis and Chi-Square.
I am more skilled than other tutors in these areas since I have a graduate level education in these statistical concepts. I can tutor in various statistics areas including business, medical/nursing, and the social sciences.
Some more specific areas of analysis are, but not limited to Correlation, Linear Regression, Factor Analysis, ANOVA, Multivariate Analysis and Chi-Square.
Trigonometry was one of my favorite parts of learning algebra and precalculus in high school, so I have a vested interest in aiding other students in understanding trigonometric identities and the functions they perform in complex equations.
Patience and persistence is key for any student who begins to learn a somewhat "foreign concept" in math and I am happy to aid in the process!
Vocabulary is an essential tool for all students to possess. I know because I myself needed to learn much vocabulary as I progressed from high school student to college student, followed by graduate school. Reading and vocabulary acquisition is an important part of mastering the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). I am confident that I can enable your student to succeed!
As I progressed through college and algebra, I was not only complimented on my strength in math, but my writing ability. Writing was not always my favorite subject in high school because I tended to be more analytically oriented. However, I learned to diversify my strengths and I now find myself excellent in both areas. Should you find your student struggling, I can not only provide them my story, but inspiration for their own success and hope in the future!
