About Chetan


Bio

I am passionate about tutoring because it allows me to combine my love of learning with the sheer joy of helping students gain a better understanding of the particular subject matter. This passion was reinforced by my experiences as a statistics and psychology tutor for two academic years at the Los Angeles Valley College. During my time there, I helped students of varying age groups ranging from freshmen to adult learners with varying levels of understanding of the subject matter.

I am passionate about tutoring because it allows me to combine my love of learning with the sheer joy of helping students gain a better understanding of the particular subject matter. This passion was reinforced by my experiences as a statistics and psychology tutor for two academic years at the Los Angeles Valley College. During my time there, I helped students of varying age groups ranging from freshmen to adult learners with varying levels of understanding of the subject matter.

I realize that due to the technical nature of statistics, students tend to memorize formulas and concepts, but become frustrated when they encounter problems that require them to apply variations of those particular formulas or concepts. In general, I address this issue by explaining the concepts in terms of relevant real world scenarios. Specifically, I first determine whether students are having difficulties with understanding the connection between a particular concept and its application to the problem or with the concept itself by asking them to solve alternative scenarios of the same problem. Then, I explain each step of the problem as it relates to the concept(s) in the context of relevant real word scenarios while confirming that they truly understand my explanations. Finally, I assign problems that involve applying the concept(s) in similar ways to the ones with which they were having difficulty but also in different ways that require a firm understanding of the concept(s).

During this process, I have seen students' facial expressions change as they realize that they are more than capable of mastering the subject that they previously thought to be insurmountable or even boring. What was required was a change in how they thought about the subject matter which we were able to achieve over the course of our tutoring sessions. As a tutor, I have seen this noticeable transformation in their thinking patterns and attitudes about the subject matter being reflected in dramatic improvement in their scores on tests and assignments. I will strive to help you achieve academic success that I have helped many other students achieve in the past.

I love helping students with statistics and research methods as it allows me to demystify complex topics by boiling them down to connections between fundamental concepts. I have excelled in college level applied and mathematical statistics courses and have helped junior or community college students with various algebra and statistics courses for more about more than two academic years. The reason I particularly love helping students with these courses is that I have noticed them to perceive some or all of these courses as dry or in the case of algebra as even, irrelevant to the real world. I strive to resolve this issue by using a lot of relevant real world examples in my explanations. I find this to be the best way to master complex concepts in algebra and statistics. I look forward to helping you develop mathematical problem solving skills that will ensure your success in your algebra and statistics courses.

I love learning about and helping students with psychology because I love studying what makes people tick. I have excelled in various college level psychology courses such as General Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Social Psychology, and Biological (Physiological) Psychology and plan to pursue the doctoral degree in clinical psychology. I have tutored General Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, and Social Psychology in a community college setting and have helped students with both understanding complex concepts and their applications to real world scenarios in Abnormal and Social Psychology. I look forward to helping you succeed in your psychology courses.

I conduct both online and face-to-face tutoring sessions and require at least 1 hour notice of cancellation for any reason. I look forward to an opportunity to help you succeed in your academic journey and help you reach the "aha" moment that I have helped many other students reach in the past.

SPSS

SPSS

I have been using SPSS extensively in both college level courses and in guided and independent research projects. I have helped students effectively use this powerful program in their statistics, psychology, nursing, public health, and business courses for more than four years as a tutor here on WyzAnt and at the Los Angeles Valley College Tutoring Lab. Additionally, I have used SPSS for my independent research project in cognitive psychology to collect, clean, organize, and analyze the research data. I look forward to helping you navigate and utilize SPSS effectively in your psychology, statistics, and research methods courses.

In addition to having a bachelor's of science degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry, I have had extensive experience with a variety statistical techniques used in bio-statistics in both independent and guided research settings using IBM SPSS. These include fecundity analysis in ecology, probabilities in population genetics and epidemiology, validity, reliability, and prevalence analysis in epidemiology. These areas of interest include basic statistical techniques such as t-test, ANOVA using F-test, MANOVA, Chi-Square analysis, non parametric techniques such as Wilcoxon signed-rank test, Kruskal-Wallis test, sign test, etc. Finally, I have a high level of familiarity with both simple and multiple linear regression and non-parametric alternatives such as Spearman's rank correlation.

Very knowledgeable and patient!

I had a very extensive SPSS assignment that I just did not understand how to interpret the information. Chelan went step by step with me to help me understand. Thanks to him I have a better understanding and I recieved an A!

Karen, 2 lessons with Chetan

Highly Knowledgeable and Patient

Chetan was very well versed with all aspects of my statistics assignment. He was able to explain statistics with ease and walk me through the steps required to analyze and compute data. I highly recommend Chetan.

Nestor, 5 lessons with Chetan

Excellent tutor

Chetan was a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. He was able to help me not only reinforce the knowledge I gained from my studies but helped me apply that knowledge in SPSS to not only complete my assignment but also produce a quality product. I will definitely be using Chetan again in the very near future. Thanks, Chetan!

Dan, 6 lessons with Chetan

Knowledgeable tutor

Sometimes talks too fast for me to catch on, but I will ask more questions and ask for him to repeat concepts sometimes. I really am a slow adult learner but like that he repeats concepts!

Dian, 2 lessons with Chetan

Thorough and very helpful at the last minute. Appreciate his willingness in short notice!!!

Chetan was available last minute when I needed help, and helped me understand the many different ways to come to a conclusion for my practice assignments.

Great Tutor!

I am very happy and fortunate to have found Chetan to tutor me with Biostatistics. The future seems brighter and my anxiety with this subject has very much been alleviated thanks to Chetan's methodology in teaching and his patience.

Satyaprasad, 7 lessons with Chetan

Knowledgeable, patient, and able to help!

I was feeling very overwhelmed by a final report for a graduate statistics course. Chetan was patient as he helped to guide me through the steps to work through the analysis. He took the time to make sure I was comfortable interpreting the outputs and even made sure I knew how to correctly report them in APA format. I would recommend Chetan to anyone looking for help with analysis on spss!

Morgan, 2 lessons with Chetan

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Chetan has a deep understanding of Hindi grammar. His approach is bottom-to-top, in a sense that he helps to learn the basic of the grammar first, before introducing a lot of vocabulary. I am grateful for his help.

Oksana, 8 lessons with Chetan
