Bio

I am interested in helping you develop your statistics and quantitative methods / research understanding, including with SPSS or R / RStudio (and sometimes Excel). I can also help you with your academic or research writing skills or editing, including learning how to present and write up statistics results.

I am interested in helping you develop your statistics and quantitative methods / research understanding, including with SPSS or R / RStudio (and sometimes Excel). I can also help you with your academic or research writing skills or editing, including learning how to present and write up statistics results.

I tutor to help people understand course material, but I also particularly specialize in helping people who need assistance working through the analysis and writing of independent research projects, including helping graduate students working on a thesis or dissertation or more broadly dissertation coaching and advising.

Descriptive and inferential statistics at Advanced placement (AP), undergraduate, and graduate levels: central tendencies and variability, standard deviation and variance, skew, histograms, 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 (including G*Power), non-parametric tests, factor analysis, and higher level statistical models as well. Just ask!

I received my PhD in social psychology with a quantitative methods (aka statistics) concentration 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 for 7+ years. 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: ** Online tutoring only! **

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.

R,

R

There are many different uses for R / RStudio and many different styles of approaches to it (no one tutor has used all of the thousands of packages!) - so if you want tutoring help in R just let me know a bit about your course in terms of the statistics topics and they way they use R, or attach some examples so I can assess if I'm a good fit for you (i.e., Does your course focus on any particular packages aka library() such as tidyverse, dplyr, ggplot2 or does your course only use base R? Do you work from some general structure of provided codes or you need to create your own? What aspects are you struggling with? What kind of course is this, and what kind of tests/analyses are you running?)
SPSS

SPSS

I have used SPSS for over 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. Highly experienced with syntax as well, if needed.

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!

Writing

I have a strong background in research writing, including helping students figure out how to report their quantitative/statistics results, how to tie those back into their broader themes, how to make logical structure and flow to their arguments, and how to apply APA style. 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.

Amazing, patient, and an expert!

If you need help with graduate level statistics, she's the one! Doesn't just immediately analyze the data, helps with outlier checking too. She is also quite direct to the point and maximizes the time you have with her. Knows a lot of theory to back the analysis up. Thanks Lindsay!

Toni, 4 lessons with Lindsay

Spss

Lindsay was beyond exceptional!! She clearly demonstrated mastery of the content. In a short time l, she helped me understand concepts that I was struggling to understand.

Kendra, 8 lessons with Lindsay

Very knowledgeable

We ran SPSS tests and reviewed how to read data. She knew SPSS very well and even gave me tips on how to use it more efficiently than my professors I would definitely use her help again :)

Miquela, 3 lessons with Lindsay

Knowledgeable and able to explain concepts

Lindsay has been extremely helpful in explaining concepts. She has reviewed linear regression, correlation, and SPSS with me. She has offered examples while helping me understand.

Kendra, 8 lessons with Lindsay

Knowledgeable and came through when needed.

Lindsay was walked me through an assignment dealing with R and went step-by-step in a clear and logical way. I would have been lost without her help. Thank you so much!

Whitney, 2 lessons with Lindsay

Knowledgeable tutor who helped me prepare for undergrad Multiple Regression class

Lindsay helped by giving me a broad overview of a 100-level stats course but was also able to go deeper when I asked. She was prompt and generous with her knowledge. Highly recommended!

Mars, 9 lessons with Lindsay

Extremely helpful, knowledgeable and patient.

A ++ Lindsay is truly an expert in statistics and other math topics. She has been an invaluable asset in my doctoral course in statistics. Her willingness to work through the basics of SPSS has allowed me to feel confident in completing this course. I will definitely reach out to her in the future if I need any help in these areas.
