My research interests lie in social, personality, clinical, and positive psychology. My undergraduate thesis examined the effects of music therapy on bipolar disorder. My master's thesis examined the effects of a primary preventive program on attitudes towards intimate partner violence. My PhD dissertation is examining gender differences in creativity, persistence, prudence, gratitude, and hope within the context of positive psychology.

My tutoring strategy is to provide guidance and clarity so students can determine exactly what they want to learn and accomplish with their project.

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 served as a reviewer for several psychological association's conference proposals and a beta manuscript for a book.

Psychology

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology, and a PhD in General Psychology.
