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!
Kip T. 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
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!!
I went to my first lesson on SPSS statistical analysis with a bucket full of stats-anxiety. Meeting Kip, I discovered his deep knowledge base and his remarkable gift for communication and clear teaching. I transitioned, even in our first session, from "This is scary" to "I can do this!" As I drove home I had time to ponder the great fortune I have in having Kip as my tutor and in having this opportunity to learn from him. I highly recommend him to you because of his unique approach to teaching and his calm, relaxed, yet focused manner. I give Kip T. FIVE STARS!
Update: Kip finds creative ways to help me learn SPSS and statistical analysis of my gathered data. His unique approach of showing me why and how to accomplish a task, followed by my doing the same translate abstract theory into practical knowledge. He is a superb mentor!
Third Lesson Update: How is this for a teaching approach-- when Kip saw that I was not grasping some important material he first showed me how to do it; he then walked with me through it as we did it together; and then he had me do the processes alone, while he watched. This man is not only a great tutor, he has INTEGRITY-to-the-MAX, noting that his job was to put himself out of a job by making sure I learned the material correctly. That kind of dedication is worth its weight in gold! I highly recommend Kip to anyone looking for a fantastic tutor in statistics or IBM's SPSS program!]
Fourth Lesson Update: Kip consulted with another statistician on working through a formula for measuring the influence of two depending variables. When he got the information, he emailed me the materials in easy-to-read, concise information so that I understood the process used. Kip is a great teacher and great strategist!
Fifth Lesson Update: Kip continued his tradition of delivering EXCELLENCE in his tutoring today. He navigated us through the process of recoding data and in preparing data for a t-test and then executing the process do that I could understand it well enough to do the actually testing at home. Kip's ability to think through problems and come up with fresh solutions is remarkable. He is an excellent tutor! Five Stars hardly captures his superb capacity to teach!
Kip was extremely helpful, and patiently explained the statistical concepts I required assistance with. I hope to work with Kip again soon, and highly recommend him!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
