Kip’s qualifications in specific subjects below.
I recently completed my graduate program in Clinical-Community Psychology. During my graduate school experience, I taught undergraduate students a variety of topics in psychology. I also served as a resident tutor in dormitory and a program assistant for a program dedicated to helping undergraduates get into graduate school.
I successfully defended my dissertation in Clinical-Community Psychology in June 2013. I have taken classes in several psychological topics including social, developmental, neuroscience, cognitive, and research methods. I have also served as a Teacher's Assistant for several of these topics at different times during my graduate career.
I was a Teen Reporter for CBS affiliate WTKR news in Norfolk, VA in 1995 at age 12. For the rest of my middle school career, I gave speeches at local elementary schools. In high school, I was paid by local non-profit organizations to lead trainings and co-facilitate family therapy groups. In college, I began public speaking to present my research findings at conferences and symposiums. I have won several competitions and formal debates with my oratory skills.
I taught a class called Laboratory of Psychology at the University of South Carolina for two years. In this class, I taught students how to create databases, conduct correlations, two types of T-tests, and three types of ANOVAs.
In my own research, I have conducted exploratory factor analysis, hierarchical linear regression, and power analyses. I am comfortable with both quantitative and qualitative research methods.
I am finishing my studies in Clinical-Community Psychology now. As an undergraduate, I took two courses in statistics. Later, I took two required courses for statistics in my graduate program. I have also taught an undergraduate level statistics course.
I have completed my graduate program in clinical-community psychology at the University of South Carolina. I used a variety of study skills to pass my classes and comprehensive exams, including mnemonics, study partners, and general repetition. I have found that having conversations about the material and including pop culture and real-life examples are the best study skills for young people.
I am writing my dissertation now. My MA thesis was on Hurricane Katrina and included more than 115 pages. My research comprehensive exam (a large paper I had to write with no one's help) included more than 70 pages.
