If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I recently graduated with distinction from Swansea University in Wales with a Master of Science degree in Research Methods in Psychology. I majored in psychology as an undergraduate at Denison University. I have experience in many honors and AP classes. While in Wales, I acted as a peer tutor in statistics and writing.

My desire to tutor comes from my lifelong love of learning. I am comfortable working with all ages and I believe that it is important to take into consideration the learning process of the student before formalizing a studying method.

I look forward to helping you in your learning process,
Alison

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Proofreading

I have experience proofreading papers at the Master's level and below. I have mostly worked with students studying in the sciences and writing in APA format, but I am also familiar with other formats such as MLA and Chicago-Style.

Psychology

I have lots of experience in both general psychological coursework and experimental psychology. I recently finished a Master's of Science degree in Research Methods in Psychology and graduated with the highest honors. I also have a Bachelor's degree in general psychology from Denison University.

Statistics

I have taken multiple courses in statistics on the undergraduate and graduate level and have tutoring experience for statistics and research methods at the Master's level.
