About Ekarin

I earned my M.A. in Psychology in August 2016 with an emphasis in Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience at San Diego State University. I completed my graduate coursework with a 4.0-grade point average. In addition to my coursework, I taught the undergraduate statistical methods in psychology laboratory (PSY280L) and was the teaching assistant for the master's level course in advanced statistics (PSY670A/B). For my teaching assistantship, I was recognized as an outstanding teaching assistant by my faculty during the fall '15 and spring '16 academic year.

Additionally, I earned my B.A. in Psychology from California State University, Northridge in December 2012 while concurrently taking pre-medical courses. I graduated with a grade point average of 3.4 (3.84 in Psychology). I was also on the Dean's List for academic achievement during the Fall 2007, Spring 2010, Fall 2011, Spring 2012, and Fall 2012 semesters.

I previously worked as a tutor for over 3 years between two educational companies. I worked one-on-one with high school students in math (Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Statistics), chemistry, and biology. I also created and lead lesson plans and activities to help students comprehend the material. And most importantly, communicated with parents about their students' progress.

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.

Biology

I can help tutor college introductory biology and high-school biology as I have taken many biology courses (i.e., Biological Principals [BIO106/L and 107/L], Human Physiology [BIO281], Genetics [BIO360], and Cell Biology [BIO380] at California State University, Northridge.

Chemistry

I can help tutor college introductory general chemistry and high-school chemistry as I have taken general chemistry (CHEM100, 101/L, and 102/L), organic chemistry (CHEM333/L and 334/L), and biochemistry (CHEM464) at California State University, Northridge.

Psychology

I can help tutor psychological courses, research, and writing. I have experience assisting undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral students with their APA-style research papers (e.g., class papers, theses, and dissertations), especially the methods and results section. I can also assist in brainstorming and explication of research ideas and design for implementation. Please also see my statistical analysis and SPSS software experience.

R

I can help tutor analyses of both descriptive (e.g., mean, standard deviation, standard error) and inferential statistics (e.g., one-sample t-test, two independent-samples t-test, two dependent [related/matched/paired] samples t-test, AN(C)OVA, correlation, regression) in R. I have experience working with R and R-Studio, which provides a powerful user interface for R. Please also see my statistical analysis experience.

SPSS

Can help tutor and perform:
- Descriptive Statistics (Mean, Standard Deviation, Percents, etc.)
- One-Sample T-Test
- Two Independent-Samples T-Test
- Two Dependent (Related/Matched/Paired) Samples T-Test
- One-Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)
- Factorial ANOVA
- Repeated-measures ANOVA
- Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA)
- Mixed-Model ANOVA
- Linear Regression
- Multiple Regression
- Mediated/Moderated Analysis
- Hierarchical Linear Models (Multilevel Models)

Statistics

I can help tutor descriptive statistics (e.g. measures of central tendency and variability) and inferential statistics (e.g. one-sample t-test, independent and dependent samples t-test, AN(C)OVA, correlation, linear/multiple regression, moderation, and mediation analyses). I can also help tutor performing these inferential statistics in statistical programs such as excel and SPSS. I have taken both undergraduate statistics (i.e., Statistical Methods in Psychology [PSY320/L] at California State University, Northridge) and graduate statistics courses (i.e., Advanced Statistics [PSY670A/B] and Multivariate Statistics [PSY775] at San Diego State University). More importantly, I instructed the undergraduate laboratory section in statistical methods in psychology (PSY280L) and was a graduate teaching assistant for the master's course in Advanced Statistics (PSY670A/B) at San Diego State University.

Smart, Patient and Nice!

Ekarin is a fantastic tutor. He helped me organize and analyze my data after I was feeling burned out and unmotivated to finish my doctoral project. We are meeting again next week to do more work together.
