It is a wise student who asks for help.
I returned to college as an adult and found navigating the college environment challenging; through persistence and dedication to learning, I graduated from my undergraduate institution summa cum laude, and with distinction from my graduate program. I have great compassion for students that struggle to master the academic process. As I was fortunate to have caring professors guide me, I made it my mission to do the same for others.
I began tutoring various topics in psychology
as an undergraduate. After earning my graduate degree I became a professor and have experience teaching many courses in the psychology curriculum over the past ten years. I also continued tutoring students who had difficulty in their courses.
My favorite class is statistics
for psychological research. While students typically begin a statistics class with a great deal of "math
anxiety" they leave my class with a new found confidence in their ability to master the topic. I am patient with my students and rephrase concepts until they "get it." Having tutored statistics for the past 15 years, I have lots of experience in presenting difficult concepts in the most easy to understand language
and provide many ways to approach relevant topics. By providing examples related to the real world, the subject makes more sense and becomes more relevant.
My area of expertise is industrial/organizational psychology. However, I have taught many different areas such as introduction to psychology, social psychology, experimental psychology, theories of learning, origins of human nature, etc.
I look forward to the opportunity to help you in any way I can.
