About Scott

For more than ten years, I have taught students ranging in age from 18 to 60 years in psychology, research, and statistics, and have been nominated as "student favorite" at East Carolina University.

As an educational psychologist, I have expertise in how people learn and I will work closely with students to personalize sessions to their needs. I start by learning what students already know about a topic and identifying a student's learning goals. Tutoring time is spent deeply engaged in learning new things and building speed and fluency with difficult ideas so that when the time comes to really perform, students won't have to worry that they can't remember what they learned. I stake my personal reputation on the experience that you or your student will receive and I will ensure a positive experience.

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.

Elementary Math

My doctoral dissertation was about creating elementary-level math tests. I had to study early math concepts and procedures considerably to understand how to construct tests. In the process, I have spent just over ten years gathering information from elementary-level students about their knowledge and using that information to help them learn more effectively.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have over 700 power points in my archives that I've created. I can make you a master in PowerPoint and make your presentation the BEST in class!

Microsoft Word

I use Microsoft Word every day for at least 3 hours of writing and editing. I know the functions very well and can make you a master of MS word in a short time!

Psychology

My doctoral degree is a Ph.D., and is accredited by the American Psychological Association. I have taught close to 20 different courses to undergraduates and graduate students since 2005. I can ensure you master your subject or AP psychology exam.

SPSS

I know SPSS better than some members of my own family. Because I am an assistant professor who does quantitative research, I use SPSS all the time. I've taught in SPSS, and have access to a wide variety of data. I am fluent in the input of data, structure of data sets, and multiple types of analyses. My knowledge of SPSS is advanced on many of the most popular functions (i.e., descriptives, means, tests of differences, tests of association, factor analysis).

Statistics

If you need help on analyses or exams, I am sure I can help you succeed. I have been teaching, learning, and using statistics for over 10 years mostly in the social sciences. I am an actively publishing doctoral faculty member and teach research methods as well.

Writing

I have over ten manuscripts published in rigorous peer-reviewed journals. Some of these journals are scientific and some are practitioner journals, the latter of which require a more prosaic style rather than a technical expository style. I taught MLA and APA style for multiple classes about writing in the social sciences at East Carolina University and at two UMass campuses. I understand and can teach the fundamental mechanics and applications of word use, sentence formation, paragraphing, essays, and longer pieces.
