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 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.

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 14 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, but let me know the detail about that (currently I 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, including helping students figure out how to make logical structure and flow to their arguments, how to apply APA style, how to report their quantitative/statistics results, and how to tie those back into their broader themes. 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.

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 or Excel.

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.

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!

STATISTICS

Lindsay is very helpful when it comes to identifying what concepts I need help on. And then reinforcing the information with helpful examples and breakdowns of each concept.

FELECIA, 7 lessons with Lindsay

Lindsay is a wonderful tutor - highly recommended

Lindsay is extraordinarily knowledgeable in advanced statistics and excellent at communicating information in a way that is easy to understand for beginners. I’m a graduate student and have found her help invaluable for my projects. Because of her, I have felt more confident taking on bigger research challenges and questions. I highly recommend Lindsay!

Lynn, 5 lessons with Lindsay

extremely knowledgeable and great teacher

Lindsay helped me conceptualize a lot of information that I was struggling teaching myself in my online class. She clarified a lot of questions I had in our one hour together. Will definitely use her for all my stats needs!

Taylor, 1 lesson with Lindsay

Awesome!

Lindsay has helped me maintain my GPA the last couple of semesters. recently, Lindsay helped me, develop my research questions, design my research survey and taught me how to run a chi square test of independence. Highly recommended.

Maribel, 3 lessons with Lindsay

Great teacher, very detailed

Lindsey was very helpful in understanding the the basic and conceptual parts of the chapters I was struggling in. I felt a better after spending just one hour with her.

Nick, 1 lesson with Lindsay

Knowledgeable and very patient

Great with SPSS and statistics resources; makes it plain for you to understand and honestly wants to make sure that "you get it". Will try more than one way to make sure that you comprehend the subject and task before she moves on.

Robin, 3 lessons with Lindsay

Knowledgeable tutor

Lindsay is really helpful, kind and easy going. Even though I really struggle with the course she was assisting me with, I was feeling more confident in the material after Lindsay explained it to me.

Kinga, 2 lessons with Lindsay

great explainer!

Helped me understand confusing aspects of the lesson! Went over things in the lesson my professor didn’t even go over!

Elisabeth, 1 lesson with Lindsay

Yes, very knowledgeable, informative and patient

I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, she was very patient with me. She helped calm me, because I really had no idea what I was doing. I'm going to continue with her.
