I am interested in helping you develop your statistics understanding or how to work with SPSS for statistics analyses (I also use R and can help you with Excel). I can also help you with your academic or research writing skills or editing, including learning how to present and write up statistics results.
I tutor to help people understand course material, but I also help people who need assistance working through the analysis and writing of independent research projects, including graduate level students working on a thesis or dissertation.
Descriptive and inferential statistics, including mean, standard deviation and variance, skew, normal distribution, sampling, hypothesis testing, z scores, probabilities, t-tests, chi-squared tests, ANOVA (ANCOVA, MANOVA, repeated measures ANOVA), regression (including linear regression, multiple regression, polynomial regression, logistic regression), mediation, moderation aka interactions, Hayes Process Macro, reliability, validity, power analyses (using G*Power), non-parametric tests, factor analysis, and higher level statistical models as well.

I received my PhD in social psychology with a quantitative methods (that is, statistics) minor from New York University. I graduated magna cum laude and with department honors in psychology from Northwestern University. At NYU I was involved in teaching undergraduate and graduate students, and in 2014 I received the inaugural graduate student teaching award for excellence in student teaching in psychology at NYU. I have also have been actively involved in statistics and writing tutoring online through personal referrals, and I am here to expand to more students. I enjoy teaching, and am interested in helping people through tutoring rather than a more traditional classroom role because it gives me time and location flexibility.

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel

I use Excel primarily in aiding with data management, for data analysis, for creating tables and graphs, and as a supplement to learning statistics. I use formulas and the data analysis tool and solver in Excel, but I do not use Excel for Macros or Pivot tables, so I will advise you to look elsewhere for those needs.

R,

R

I have recently been returning to using R after many years away from it, and am eager to incorporating it into my statistics tutoring. I am a highly experienced and highly rated statistics tutor, and looking for students in Intro to Stats courses who are learning R.
SPSS

SPSS

I have used SPSS for around 15 years. I have taught SPSS for statistics to undergraduate, Master's, and doctoral students in both classroom and online tutoring settings - from complete beginnings to those undertaking higher level analyses. In addition to helping students learn course material, I have tutored students through their own data analyses (everything from undergrads with learning projects to graduate students working on their dissertations), I have assisted colleagues with its use, I have used it in market research analyst job, and I have used it for independent consulting projects.

Statistics

Statistics

I particularly specialize in helping students either in (1) college level statistics (undergraduate and advanced AP students) or applied statistics courses and (2) graduate students who have to learn to use statistics in social science fields, nursing and medicine, business, education, and public policy. The quantitative minor with my PhD included extensive statistics coursework, as well as teaching Master's and doctoral students to understand and perform advanced regression analyses. In addition to tutoring for undergraduate and graduate statistics courses, I have assisted undergraduates in a research lab course to understand how analyze their own data, and I have worked with nearly a hundred graduate students needing help to understand their own data analyses. Growing up, I was generally very strong in math, but statistics was the only math-oriented subjects that at first did not quite click for me, so I feel I am uniquely positioned to understand students' struggles with it and help them get to the ah-ha moments. I have taught sampling and hypothesis testing, z scores, t tests, chi square, ANOVAs, correlations, regressions, factor analysis, reliability, and much more. Statistics can be a pretty broad term, I will not pretend to know the entire field as there can be some specialized niches, but if you are asking for help something that is not within my area of expertise I will advise you to look elsewhere - so feel free to ask!

Writing

I have a strong background in research writing, including helping students figure out how to report their quantitative/statistics results, how to tie those back into their broader themes, how to make logical structure and flow to their arguments, and how to apply APA style. I have been the primary author on three peer reviewed research articles and co-authored two book chapters, and looking back a bit further I won the award for best undergraduate psychology paper at my undergraduate institution (Northwestern University). I have worked with hundreds of undergraduates to help them refine research critiques, proposals, and reports. I have worked with nearly a hundred graduate students to help them successfully improve their theses and dissertations. I have assisted colleagues with the structure, organization, and arguments in their own research papers.

Very Knowledgeable

Lindsay is very knowledgeable. She knows her stuff. She’s a no nonsense teacher. However, her bluntness can be a little abrasive to those who aren’t as smart as her.

JULIE, 1 lesson with Lindsay

Awesome tutor!

Lindsay is so knowledgeable and patient. She was a godsend for my biostatistics courses and research project! Would recommend highly! She makes it look so easy.

Patricia, 14 lessons with Lindsay

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

I had a great experience with Lindsay. She was very knowledgeable and prepared. I specifically appreciated her use of the whiteboard and her ability to illustrate the concepts using graphs. I would highly recommend Lindsay!

Courtney, 2 lessons with Lindsay

great teacher, patient and clear

Lindsey is helping me navigate Statistics for Scientists graduate course. Math is not my strength. She is patient and clear and helps me understand things visually before working through the math. Highly recommend.

Kristin, 3 lessons with Lindsay

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Lindsay is extremely knowledgeable with statistical software and research paper editing. She is compulsive about teaching me the details of statistics in a logical manner. I highly recommend her.

Jose, 17 lessons with Lindsay

Very knowledgeable and great pace

Very knowledgeable, great pace in class, we covered all the questions I had and easy to work with. Learnt a lot in one session.

Monisha, 1 lesson with Lindsay

Knowledge, thorough and patient tutor

Lindsay takes the time to explain all questions thoroughly until you understand. She allows you try to troubleshoot your issues independently, but then steps in to show you the issue with your code or offer more efficient methods of achieving the same result. She is the best.

Boons, 7 lessons with Lindsay

A life saver!

I learned more from Lindsay in an hour of R tutoring than I had from 5 weeks of virtual lectures! She is patient and will help you reach the ah-ha moments that can sometimes be difficult to achieve with R and statistics at large.

Noah, 8 lessons with Lindsay

DNP help

My education has mainly been clinical based and research/statistics are still very confusing. Lindsay was very helpful in interpreting and correcting what statistical work I had done so far and setting me on the right path. I look forward to working with her further on my project.
