About Mindy

My name is Mindy, and I can help you excel in your psychology coursework! Whether you need to score well on the GRE Subject Test in Psychology (I scored a 760 out of 800) or you need help for your AP Psychology class, I am available to guide you through it.

A little about my psychology background: I majored in Psychology at Georgetown University, then moved to LA for my graduate degree in Clinical-Community Psychology. I completed my Psy.D. from an APA-accredited program in 2014. While completing my doctoral coursework, I also served as a teaching assistant for Psychology Assessment classes and for undergraduate Research Methods and Data Analysis classes. I am especially well-versed in autism spectrum disorder, the history of psychology, psychological assessment and testing, theories of learning, research methods, and APA formatting for research papers and dissertations.

I have tutored students as young as the elementary-school level, up to doctorate level students. I enjoy teaching and sharing my knowledge. For test preparation, getting a better background in psychology, or figuring out which statistical analysis to use for your research project, I can help!

My schedule changes from week to week, so the availability I have posted is a rough guideline. Feel free to message me if you want to meet with me on a different date. Also, if you would like me to proofread for you, I can usually accommodate that at any time.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am a doctoral candidate in psychology and much of my work has involved evaluating children with ADHD and providing treatment recommendations for them. I am familiar with the educational supports that children with ADHD require for success, and I have tutored hyperactive and inattentive children.

Aspergers

I am a doctoral candidate in psychology and my dissertation focuses on children with autism. I have two years of experience working with children with autism and other special needs. I have received training in Applied Behavior Analysis, which is the current "gold standard" for intervention with individuals with autism spectrum disorders.

Autism

I am a doctoral candidate in psychology and my dissertation focuses on children with autism. I have two years of experience working with children with autism and other special needs. I have received training in Applied Behavior Analysis, which is the current "gold standard" for intervention with autistic individuals.

Proofreading

I spend 10-20 hours a week writing reports in APA format, and have years of experience with grading and editing papers in APA format. After 20+ years of schooling, I've written thousands of pages of essays, assessment reports, research papers, and even a dissertation. I have tutored others writing college and graduate school application essays - and these folks have then been accepted to schools!

Psychology

I have a doctoral degree in Clinical-Community Psychology from an APA-accredited program (University of La Verne). I scored a 760 out of 800 on the GRE Subject Test in Psychology. Both my dissertation topic proposal and my dissertation defense were accepted the first time I presented them, and I have a great deal of professional experience in the area of clinical psychology, including both assessment and individual therapy.

Specifically, I have focused my training in the following areas: children and adolescents, developmental disabilities (especially autism), psychological testing, forensic psychology, history of psychology, and research methods and data analysis. I have extensive experience writing research papers and evaluation reports.

Special Needs

I am a doctoral candidate in psychology and my dissertation focuses on children with autism. I have two years of experience working with children with autism and other special needs. I have received training in Applied Behavior Analysis, which is the current "gold standard" for intervention with autistic individuals and for children with behavioral and other special needs. My past jobs have also included work with children with emotion regulation problems, and other special needs including cerebral palsy, intellectual disability, and conduct disorder.

Writing

My experience in writing includes academic writing while acquiring a bachelor's degree, a master's degree, and doctorate. I wrote a dissertation and now tutor other doctoral students in writing methods to help them pass the dissertation defense the first time. Professionally, I work part-time as an evaluator and frequently write reports that are up to 50 pages long. These reports are read by parents, educators, school administrators, and psychiatrists. My writing style focuses on clarity and organization throughout the document.
