About Evan

I graduated from with my BS in Psychology from University of North Florida at age 20. I am your tutor for hire!

My interest and education in psychology has taught me a lot about how and why people act the way they do.

I graduated my psychology classes with a 3.75 GPA and am eager to pass down what I've learned, and maybe learn some more! I love psychology and my knowledge extends further than what normal college curriculum teaches.

I plan to teach english as a second language in a foreign country within the next year. Furthermore, Psychology focused on a lot of writing with little room for error, so I know how to write out thoughts in a concise (the most important rule of writing) and clear manner. I'm also learning Korean, which helps a lot with insight towards your own native language.

I could have never gotten straight A's if I didn't learn discipline, study methods, and memory techniques. Psychology also inadvertently helped my study skills.

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.

Study Skills

Coming from a psychology background, I understand how the mind is "programmed" to hold on to certain things. For example, the biggest one, association, is our bread and butter for memorizing things. Associating facts or scenarios with a song, person, quote, smell, etc, will help us grasp onto concepts with ease. Association can also hinder learning. For example, studying in the same room you sleep in subconsciously hurts learning. Furthermore, creating an apparent need for memorization by making the material relevant to you will instantly help one hold onto concepts. If I'm learning a new language in a new country, I will quickly learn the most useful phrases, such as "where is the bathroom?" Our brain dedicates it's energy to hold on to these things when they're relevant to our "survival". Though they can get the job done, spaced repetition methods are generally boring and ineffective. As far as motivation goes, my bottom line advice is this: You have a job in front of you that needs to get done. Are you going to let it control you or are you going to control it? Are you going to go your whole life without learning this? Make it happen now.
