About Sylvia

I am currently an Assistant Professor conducting research at Northwestern University, and I am excited about the possibility of tutoring someone part time. I received my PhD in psychology, and minored in statistics and methods. I am particularly skilled at various statistical methods (including correlation, ANOVA, chi-square, and regression), study design and development, and research writing and editing.

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.

Grammar

I can edit and provide feedback on papers. I am particularly skilled at providing feedback for technical and scientific papers written in APA style.

Psychology

I received my Ph.D. in psychology with a concentration in Social Psychology. I am open to helping with all things psychology related.

SPSS

As a social psychologist, I use SPSS daily to analyze data I collect for my research. I am particularly skilled at running correlation, regression (linear, hierarchical, logistic, multinomial, moderated, mediated, moderated-mediated, etc), and ANOVA analyses, but I can do other things as well. Just ask!

Writing

As a social psychologist, I have written and published several chapters and publications in refereed journals in the fields of (social and personality) psychology, psychology and law, medicine, and public health. Additionally, I have written several large grant and fellowship proposals (that were all funded). My expertise lies in writing for scientific and academic audiences, and I am particularly skilled in APA style.

Great!

Sylvia walked me through my open ended questions, and used an example dataset to illustrate tests of inferential statistics and when they are appropriate to use. Pretty sure she is a genius. Thanks a bunch!
