I am a graduate student working on my PhD in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. I am capable of tutoring in many fields, but my areas of specialty are in psychology and statistics. I am proficient in SPSS. I have written extensive conference papers, and I am working on journal publications.
I have taught undergraduate classes, and I have a background in training and development for education and corporations. I have some experience providing one-on-one tutoring sessions in statistics and undergraduate writing. I have recently tutored two undergraduate psychology students in research design, writing empirical papers, and understanding basic statistical concepts.
My approach is to understand what the needs and areas for improvement are in my new students. I work from there, explaining concepts, answering questions, and helping the students to learn the material. If I give an answer to a question, I explain how I came to that decision. I believe in the utility of practice. Ultimately, I want my students to develop expertise in the areas in which we work.

Jill is Awesome! She really knows SPSS and how to explain it. We were experienced technical difficulties at first, otherwise, I give Jill an A+ rating. She responds quickly! Thanks Jill!
Jill was the perfect tutor for me. I was a graduate student and needed to publish my research thesis. I have nothing but great things to say about her. She is a phenomenal tutor! I went from having an incomplete to have an A in my class plus publishing my thesis in the Criminal Justice Praxis Journal, a scholarly journal. Jill is good at research, writing papers, editing them and making sure I understood the concepts. I was having difficulty with the statistics for an assessment and the stats which my professor wanted. Jill solved them with me and my problem went from "Well that presentation was a fiasco" to "You did an excellent job on that paper!" My professor eventually would give me an A and I was able to graduate. I loved having Jill as a tutor and would rate her an A+.
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.
Providing beginner's knitting lessons. Learn how to make slip knots, cast on, knit, purl, seed stitch, ribbing, and more.
I have been knitting for over 7 years. My approach includes starting out with foundational work. The student will learn how to make a slip knot and cast on their first row. The first lesson will be dedicated to learning this. Repetition is key with craft work, and it is a big part of each lesson. Next, we will work on making a swatch (a large square of fabric). After we have mastered the swatch, we will pick a simple project (hat, scarf) and apply the skills developed in initial lessons.
I have worked extensively with proofreading on student papers.
I have an MS in Psychology and have completed coursework toward my PhD.
I have been working with SPSS for several years. Whether you need help with t-tests, ANOVAs correlations, or factor analysis, I can help.
Study skills is necessary for academic success at any level. I will use my knowledge of cognitive psychology and experience as an individual with a professional degree to help students develop their study skills.
Lessons will incorporate work on the following:
- analysis of attention.
- development of attention skills
- test-taking best practices
- getting organized
- developing a study plan
- learning how to pace out study time
- the difference between memorizing material and learning it
- the importance of practice.
I have assisted many students with writing on homework assignments, major projects, theses, and dissertations.
