Temple University (MEd)
I have over six years' teaching and tutoring experience and a Master’s degree in Educational Psychology, which emphasized learning theory and motivation as well as statistical analysis and research methodology. I teach adolescent development and child development at a local university; combined with my math skills, this make me the perfect tutor to teach your child math or SAT preparation.
At the college level, I have tutored undergraduates in precalculus and assisted a professor with a precalculus class at a community college. I have tutored graduate students in statistics and have consulted with doctoral students on methods and procedures for analyzing dissertation data and on the use of the SPSS statistical computer package. I have also taught a beginner’s computer class as a volunteer for the Center for Social Policy and Community Development at Temple University. I have over twenty-five years’ experience working on mainframe and personal computers and am proficient in Word, Excel, SPSS, Windows and general computer use.
I have always wanted to be a teacher but I was persuaded to pursue a degree in a mathematical field since I always excelled in my math classes. I have recently retired after twenty years as a research professional at Temple University and would consider it quite an opportunity to be a tutor and share with students what I have learned from my studies and my work experience.

I offer discounts for multiple hours or multiple students per session.
Lorraine is a wonderful tutor. She is patient and works at a pace that is convenient for the student. This is my second time working with Lorraine and she jumped right in where we left off a couple of years ago. She has a great, user friendly disposition in terms of explaining statistics in laymen's terms. I would highly recommend her.
I worked briefly with Lorraine and although my needs were extensive, she was very helpful. She is flexible, courteous and gets back to you in a reasonable amount of time.
My son said it was a "great" session! I'm very happy and appreciative that she was able to meet with him at such a short notice. Worked with him at a slow pace and thoroughly explained everything (per my son, who's a hard sell). Thank you Lorraine, I am looking forward to working with you again.
I contacted Lorraine in order to get help with my Computer Assisted Data Analysis of Psychology (statistics) class, but she also is a great help with my Testing & Assessment and Research Methods in Psychology classes. Lorraine has a great deal of real world experience to back up her wide range of knowledge. In fact, after only one hour with her during our first meeting, I left with a much better understanding of the material. I definitely recommend her!
Lorraine is a wonderful tutor. As a doctoral student with a life-long phobia of statistics, Lorraine patiently mentored me through several months of introductory stats. She has a great personality and an ability to demystify the arcane language of stats. It is also evident that she really enjoys the power of statistics, and that joy translates into a constructive, fun, learning environment. On the practical side, Lorraine is flexible with scheduling, as well as with the curriculum, i.e. she knows how to adapt to the needs of different students. Moreover, she spends time in between classes identifying materials that will further enhance learning on the topic at hand. I highly and enthusiastically recommend Lorraine!
I am a bit late in writing a review about my previous experience with Lorraine. Since I needed help in somewhat advanced SPSS techniques, I was very concerned about whether she would be able to satisfy my needs. Surprisingly, she was more than I have ever expected. She knew what are the important factors in using SPSS and statistics in general. She helped me learn some of the important procedures while showing me how to use SPSS. She was very focused, bright, and able to articulate her points in everyday language. I got done everything I needed to get done in time as she was able to answer and demonstrate every question I asked her. She is also very good at being on time, which can be a plus. I definitely recommend her to anyone who has a problem with their statistics. I look forward to getting some more help from her in the future.
My classmate and I met with Lorraine for two hours to get help with a research proposal for our Nursing Research course. This woman knows anything you need to know when it comes to writing research papers. She anticipated our needs and told us what we needed to do to get an A+. She guided us every step of the way. I just can't say enough about how great she is. She explained everything in a way that was so easy to understand. If you want the best you must choose her.
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.
I have been using mainframe and personal computers for over 25 years. In 1985, I started using the DOS operating system and have used all the Windows operating systems that have been developed since then. In February 2011, I upgraded from years of using Windows XP Professional to using Windows 7 Ultimate. In September 2011, I took a Temple University computer seminar in Windows 7 to solidify what I had learned on my own and to discover facets of Windows 7 that I might have missed. I now have extensive knowledge of Windows 7 structure and use and am confident that I can teach it in a way that will be easily understood effectively utilized.
I have a master's degree in Educational Psychology, which emphasizes learning theories and teaching methods. I teach courses in adolescent development and early child development at Temple University in Philadelphia. Both of the courses prepare potential educators to take the Praxis exam. I also tutor general math, algebra, geometry, statistics, and research methodology.
I have over 20 years' experience as a research professional at the Institute for Survey Research, Temple University. In this position, I have become proficient in statistics and the use of SPSS for data analysis.
I have over five years of tutoring experience. I have attended numerous workshops that teach college professors how to apply evidence-based principles to help their students learn. This semester I will begin teaching a class at Temple University. From my own experience as a student and from my teaching experience, I can help improve study skills and offer suggestions on how to improve one's performance in the classroom.
