Hello!

My name is Tina and I have several years of teaching and advising experience in higher education. I have worked at several colleges across the country, to include Arizona State University, Purdue University, University of Phoenix, Tulane, UCLA and others. I have a B.A. in Sociology and a minor in Psychology and a masters degree from Purdue University in Counseling and College Student Affairs. Additionally, I have a masters in Law from Arizona State University College of Law. I continue to take psychology courses each term. I enjoy being a lifelong learner and am very passionate about the subject of psychology!

I enjoy having fun with students and working to adjust to their learning styles so that they gain the most out of a session and really absorb, learn and retain the material, rather than just memorize it for a test or paper.

My favorite subjects to teach, tutor and learn are psychology, law/criminal justice, sociology, cultural diversity, writing, proofreading, literature, study skills and many others!

I think everyone has the capacity to learn and master any subject and I would be honored if you chose me to help you achieve your academic and intellectual goals!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Criminal Justice

Several years of education and experience in criminology, victimology, criminal justice, bystander behavior, crisis intervention/prevention, conflict resolution, cultural diversity, juvenile delinquency, theories and criminal law.
I have both a BA in Law and society and an MS in legal studies, with a focus on criminal law. My true professional passions are both criminal justice and psychology. If there is a subject in which you need help, please let me know. I would be glad to help and learn more with you in the process!

Study Skills

For several years I have taught academic success courses at Arizona State University. I have developed the curriculum for the bulk of this course and truly enjoy teaching study skills because they can absolutely change one's academic path. The course I taught covered the following topics and more:

Time Management
Motivation
Listening Skills
Memory Skills
Relaxation Skills
Test-taking
Note-taking
Reading Skills
Goal Setting
Proofreading
Paper writing
Professional Communication
Resume development
