About Marta


Bio

Hi, I'm Marta. I have a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from UC Berkeley and have worked as a psychology professor for 30 years. As a professor I have extensive experience with one-to-one tutoring and mentoring of students, both teenagers and adults. I have worked with students from many different cultures and language groups. After many years teaching I have found that the most gratifying part of my work is one-to-one instruction. My tutoring approach is individualized to meet the needs...

Hi, I'm Marta. I have a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from UC Berkeley and have worked as a psychology professor for 30 years. As a professor I have extensive experience with one-to-one tutoring and mentoring of students, both teenagers and adults. I have worked with students from many different cultures and language groups. After many years teaching I have found that the most gratifying part of my work is one-to-one instruction. My tutoring approach is individualized to meet the needs of different students. I begin with exercises developed to assess the student's current level of understanding and any roadblocks that have made the topic particularly difficult them. For writing instruction I give extensive feedback to the student for revision and rewriting. For statistics, which many students find very difficult, I present real world examples and demonstrate how the concepts and equations statisticians use enable them to address real world problems.

As a professor I have spent years teaching critical reading and writing as part of various psychology courses. I have also taught courses in basic statistics. My teaching techniques have been adapted and revised over time to meet the needs of students at different levels. For each class I met with students individually and in small groups for intensive instruction to ensure that they were comfortable with the material. With a Ph.D. in Psychology I am available to tutor Psychology at any level. I am also available to meet for instruction in conversational English.
I am eager to meet you, hear about your educational goals, and begin working together on you achieving those goals. I will respond quickly to any inquiry and my schedule is quite open. So please feel free to contact me!

Patient and Gifted Statistics Tutor!

Marta L has a special gift for translating hard to understand information to understandable text and applications. She has the patience and kindness of a true teacher who just wants you to learn and digest the material presented. I feel lucky to have found her through Wyzant as I'm a returning student post 18 years of not attending college. One of the requirements to apply for grad school is statistics, so I registered with Wyzant and started tutoring sessions with Marta. With her help, I earned an ‘A’ in inferential statistics! Yes, an A. I put in a lot of work, but I had Marta’s wonderful help and encouragement throughout the semester. I’m currently using her services again for my GRE prep. Thank you, Marta!

Big help with intro to statistics

Marta has a lot of experience teaching, and did a great job helping me with an intro to statistics online class that definitely did not feel like "intro" to me! We reviewed concepts I didn't understand and she helped me to get a good grade on my quizzes and group project. I got a 93% as my final grade in the class!
