About Lindsay

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, 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 a thesis or dissertation. Descriptive and inferential statistics, including mean, standard deviation and variance, skew, normal distribution, probabilities, t-tests, Chi squares, ANOVA (MANOVA and repeated measures), regression (including linear, multiple, polynomial, logistic), mediation, moderation, reliability, validity, power analyses (using G*Power), 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.

Statistics and SPSS: The quantitative minor with my PhD included teaching Masters and PhD students to theoretically understand and perform advanced regression analyses in SPSS, and assisting undergraduates to run analyses in a research lab course. I used SPSS in a market research analyst job prior to graduate school and as my primary statistics tool for graduate school. I have also done extensive statistics consulting and tutoring online. I have used SPSS for 12+ years. I also use G*Power / GPower for power analyses. Excel is also a handy tool, and I can help you use it in statistics contexts.
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 also work in R and can help you if your questions are more of the underlying statistical understanding (I just do not want to tutoring someone to learn R coding from the absolute ground up as it can be a steep learning curve for some and I am not sure the best way to approach that).

Writing: I have a strong background in research writing, and I am interested in helping you with similar kinds of non-fiction writing such as expository, persuasive, and research reports or critiques, or helping you with editing and feedback on the structure, organization, and arguments of your thesis or dissertation (I do not do tutoring to help with descriptive or creative or narrative writing, although I can assist you if you are looking primarily for help with peer copy editing). I have co-authored two academic book chapters and three research journal articles, and I won the award for best undergraduate psychology paper at my undergraduate institution. I have worked with hundreds of undergraduates to help them refine research critiques, proposals, and reports, I have assisted colleagues with the structure, organization, and arguments in their own research papers, and I help Master's and doctoral students work on their theses and dissertations.

Psychology: My field is social psychology, with some overlapping topics in political science, marketing, and industrial/organizational psychology. In my role as a PhD student I also served as a teaching assistant for developmental psychology, social psychology, and introduction to psychology. I also have a strong academic and working background in clinical and abnormal psychology.

Contact me for more information or to begin creating a tutoring plan to reach your goals. I am very flexible on scheduling, highly responsive and able to schedule appointments very quickly. I am only available for online tutoring, but the WyzAnt's site provides excellent tools for the one-on-one meeting like a whiteboard for visual graphs and formulas, a text editor to collaborate on writing, instant file sharing, and screen sharing to - for example - show steps or output in SPSS.

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.

Psychology

I have a PhD in social psychology, and in my role as a graduate student I served as a teaching assistant for developmental psychology, social psychology (three times), and introduction to psychology (three times). I also have a strong academic and working background in clinical and abnormal psychology.

I have used SPSS for 12+ years. I have taught SPSS for statistics to undergraduate, Master's, and doctoral students in both classroom and online tutoring settings, and have assisted colleagues with its use.

She is the main reason why I passed two college Statistics courses

I have used Lindsay for two Liberty University courses. PSYC 354, and 355. She is very knowledgeable in SPSS. She without a doubt is the reason why I was able to pass both classes. She has the heart of a teacher. I cannot thank her enough for helping me get closer to obtaining my bachelor's degree. Thank you!
