About Kip

Hi,

My name is Kip. I have completed my graduate program in Clinical-Community Psychology at the University of South Carolina, and I am now interning at Boston Medical Center. I have completed my dissertation, a program evaluation on a school-based intervention for at-risk high school youth. I have taught several classes in psychology, but I really enjoy teaching beginner-level statistics and APA writing skills. I have presented at conferences across the country, so I have expertise in designing posters that stand out. I also have experience teaching and mentoring elementary and middle school age kids.

I would describe my tutoring style as a three-part process. First, I try to listen as much as possible to what the client's needs are. I want to hear what they feel strong about, where they need help, and what they need to think out loud. Second, I repeat back what I have heard to make sure we are on the same page. This gives me a chance to brainstorm on how I can use use what I know to assist. Finally, together, we discuss how I can help. I am confident I have a broad set of skills that my clients find helpful.

I look forward to meeting with you soon!

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.

College Counseling

I recently completed my graduate program in Clinical-Community Psychology. During my graduate school experience, I taught undergraduate students a variety of topics in psychology. I also served as a resident tutor in dormitory and a program assistant for a program dedicated to helping undergraduates get into graduate school.

Psychology

I successfully defended my dissertation in Clinical-Community Psychology in June 2013. I have taken classes in several psychological topics including social, developmental, neuroscience, cognitive, and research methods. I have also served as a Teacher's Assistant for several of these topics at different times during my graduate career.

Public Speaking

I was a Teen Reporter for CBS affiliate WTKR news in Norfolk, VA in 1995 at age 12. For the rest of my middle school career, I gave speeches at local elementary schools. In high school, I was paid by local non-profit organizations to lead trainings and co-facilitate family therapy groups. In college, I began public speaking to present my research findings at conferences and symposiums. I have won several competitions and formal debates with my oratory skills.

SPSS

I taught a class called Laboratory of Psychology at the University of South Carolina for two years. In this class, I taught students how to create databases, conduct correlations, two types of T-tests, and three types of ANOVAs.
In my own research, I have conducted exploratory factor analysis, hierarchical linear regression, and power analyses. I am comfortable with both quantitative and qualitative research methods.

Statistics

I am finishing my studies in Clinical-Community Psychology now. As an undergraduate, I took two courses in statistics. Later, I took two required courses for statistics in my graduate program. I have also taught an undergraduate level statistics course.

Study Skills

I have completed my graduate program in clinical-community psychology at the University of South Carolina. I used a variety of study skills to pass my classes and comprehensive exams, including mnemonics, study partners, and general repetition. I have found that having conversations about the material and including pop culture and real-life examples are the best study skills for young people.

Vocabulary

My wide vocabulary is a result of reading a lot of books throughout grade school, writing essays in college, and conducting research in graduate school.

Writing

I am writing my dissertation now. My MA thesis was on Hurricane Katrina and included more than 115 pages. My research comprehensive exam (a large paper I had to write with no one's help) included more than 70 pages.

Absolutely wonderful!! — Kip was amazingly patient and broke the information down into easily digestible chunks. He listened to what I needed and provided clear, concise explanations for some pretty difficult information. He even provided me with resources to take home after the lesson. Best 2 hours I've spent learning statistical analysis and how to utilize SPSS software yet!! ...
