Hello! I am happy to have the opportunity to tutor you. I have extensive experience (and I enjoy) developing engaging and fun course materials to help others learn. I believe learning happens through applied exercises, analogies, and engaging examples. My philosophy and my content knowledge, on-the-job experience, and teaching experience make me suited to be a strong tutor.

I received a B.S. in Psychology from Virginia Tech in 2007. I then received a M.S. from Old Dominion University in 2010. I am currently finishing my dissertation (all course-work is complete) to complete a PhD program an Industrial/Organizational Psychology at Old Dominion. While attending ODU, I taught one year of Introduction to Psychology to a class of approximately 100 students. I also taught one year of Experimental Methods (a capstone course for Psychology Majors) to a class of approximately 100 students and was the ODU College of Science nominee for the 17th Annual Old Dominion University Graduate Teaching Assistant Award. In addition, I also taught the lab portion of the Experimental Methods course for two years. My current employment (a consultant in the area of Applied Organizational Research) also necessitates a thorough understanding of psychological, experimental, and statistical principles.

I have approximately 10 years of statistics related course work, research, and on-the-job experience. My course work includes: Intro to Statistics, Probability Statistics, Statistics for the Biological Sciences, Business Statistics, Analysis of Variance, Multiple Regression, Structural Equation Modeling, Hierarchical Linear Modeling, and Psychometric Theory.

Further, I taught statistical analyses to undergraduate students at Old Dominion University as part of the Experimental Methods course.

I have also used various statistical analyses for various publications in peer-reviewed journals (references available upon request).

Finally, I am well versed in Microsoft Excel (including Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming languages) and SPSS software. For Microsoft Excel, I have extensive data analysis experience and spreadsheet experience via graduate school course work, research experience, and on-the-job consulting experience as a consultant for applied organizational research. I am familiar with basic excel functions as well as arrays, pivot tables, macros, and userforms. For SPSS, I have
Six years of extensive experience with SPSS for various research projects, course work, on-the-job work, and thesis work. Knowledge with native user interface functions as well as syntax and macros.

An example of some of the tasks I have completed via SPSS: Descriptive Statistics, Frequencies, Correlations, Cross-tabs, Chi-Square, Linear and Multiple Regression, ANOVA, ANCOVA, MANOVA, Data structuring for HLM analysis, Outlier analysis, Regression assumption analysis, Factor analysis, Data cleaning, Recoding of variables, and Composite variable creation .
