I had excellent grades in high school math and science. At Harvey Mudd College I had good grades in physics (2 semesters), chemistry (2 semesters) and calculus (3 semesters). At the University of Missouri I obtained a BA in psychology with a high GPA, and a Masters degree in Statistics. At Carnegie-Mellon University I obtained a PhD degree in statistics with an emphasis on statistics in psychiatric research.
I have tutored in high school and in college: mathematics, statistics, chemistry, physics.
I have mentored PhD clinical psychology candidates in statistical design, statistical analysis, SAS and SPSS.
I have lectured in statistics at all undergraduate levels and in industry.
I try to coach students on how to exercise what they know or at least have studied, in order to learn how to learn what they are studying next; rather than repeat what is in the texts and lectures, and online.
I emphasize to drill to mastery after achieving understanding, and as a way to deepen understanding. And I emphasize explaining back to the tutor as a way to impress memory and deepen understanding.
