About Kenton

I just graduated with my master's in I/O psychology and have two years of tutoring under my belt! I have a passion for learning and can't wait to share that with you! My approach is to personalize the sessions to individuals, which starts with your goals and the course syllabus. Please share these with me to get started!

If you're not familiar with I/O psychology, it stands for industrial and organizational psychology. It's beginnings can be traced to the World War's when psychologists were used to develop selection systems for the military, which still has a robust relationship today. After the Civil Rights Movement and following legislation, it was accelerated even more because individuals could not not be discriminated against and psychologists stepped in with methods to reduce bias during the employment process. We use a lot of parametric statistics to validate measures, assess personality, predict performance and reduce turnover.

I bet you never knew that statistics were used to make the world a more equitable place! Let's unleash that power together! The world needs your ideas.

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.

Microsoft Excel

Excel is the backbone of a lot of the other work I do in SPSS, R, Tableau, etc. I've cleaned dozens of datasets, created +$100,000 budgets, and innumerable tables/ graphs. I'm very efficient with vlookup, pivot tables, and other formula functions. Together, we can help you understand the basics, solve your problem and make you an Excel 'Wyz'ard in no time!

Psychology

I am a masters of industrial and organizational psychology and have guest lectured for introduction to psychology and developmental psychology courses as part of my graduate assistantship. Other psychology courses that I have taken include experimental, statistics, selection and assessment, principles of learning, occupational health psychology, individual psychological assessment, and organizational psychology.

R

I used R for applied psychology research during my master's education. I have conducted and have scripts for performing ANOVAs, ANCOVAS, CFA, EFA, correlations, means, multiple regression, tables, t-tests, and power calculations. I have used R and R Studio ( a supplemental platform). I understand the environment, how to load and update packages. There are 1000s of add-on packages and I feel confident that I could successfully use most of them.

SPSS

I have worked with datasets as large as 26,000 cases in SPSS, ran basic statistics (t-test, anova, regression), but also advanced stats such as (mediated/moderated regression, and factor analysis). I have strong data management skills and prefer to use syntax over the point and click method.

Statistics

I have taken the following statistics courses: Business Stats I & 2, Marketing Research, Business Intelligence, Inferential Statistics, Multivariate Statistics, and Psychometrics. The last three were at the graduate level.
