My tutoring focuses on three areas -- sociology/criminal justice, English, and SAS/SPSS programming. I have a PhD in sociology and 11 years of experience teaching full-time at the university level. My teaching has been at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. I can tutor in almost any sociology course, but most of my teaching experience has been in criminology.
I have worked with a number of students individually and really enjoy it. In addition to subject matter tutoring, I can help with term papers, research projects, theses, and dissertations. I can also help with English reading, writing, grammar, and ACT/SAT test preparation in these areas.
Effective writing has always been crucial to my work as an academician and researcher. I have helped many students improve their writing skills.
In addition, I have found that many students in the social sciences struggle with research methods and statistics more than any other courses. I very much enjoy helping students unravel the mysteries of these topics. My experience in research is not merely academic. For about 10+ years, I conducted research full-time. I can, therefore, bring real-world experiences to students who need help in these areas. My research experience also includes a number of years experience with SAS data management and statistical analysis programming. Learning SAS can be daunting, but I can help.
My general approach is to first understand your goals and expectations for the tutoring experience. Then we can determine the best approach(es) and tools to overcome any obstacles and to ensure your success. If a certain approach isn't working, we'll try something else until we find a solution. I'm not about what works for me. I'm about what works for you.
