About Debra

Hi, I recently graduated with IIa Honors from a Bachelor of Psychological Science degree in Australia and now live in Los Angeles. Psychology is a huge passion of mine and I will be pursuing a PhD in the subject next year. If you are struggling with psychology, want to improve your grades, need help with scientific writing or statistics I can help.

I've been helping my fellow students throughout my entire academic career and have previously worked in positions where I trained staff and clients. I'm very patient and like to break down the specific problems and goals my students have. My four year course that focuses solely on psychology so I was able to develop my knowledge extensively in this area. Since graduating I have continued to follow the literature in social psychology (my field of interest) and am preparing to apply to graduate schools next year.

My specialty areas are scientific writing, conducing literature searches, and social psychology. I do have a background in several fields of psychology (developmental, clinical, org psych). My goal is to give you the skills to excel in psychology rather than feeding you information to memorize. Scientific writing is a skill that can be learnt like any other. Several of my academic papers have been used as examples of writing students should aim for by my past teachers which is something I am very proud of. I also previously worked at a small publishing company where I was proofread books before print.

Contact me if you want to talk more about your studies in psychology.

Approved subjects

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.

Proofreading

I've had a lot of experience in a wide range of proof-reading. I've written and edited a wide range of papers from argumentative essays to scientific research reports. Several of my papers are now used as example essays for students to reference when looking for how to write.

Psychology

My specialization in my degree was in social psychology, though I took several classes in statistics, clinical psychology, developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, behavioral psychology and neuropsychology. One of my cognitive psychology essays is now used as an example of good academic writing for students to reference.
