About Jean

Hello! Would you like to learn statistics, but think it is too confusing. let me help you understand why we use statistics, what those pesky "p" levels mean, and how you can be sure you are using the right test with the right data. My specialties include z tests, t tests, f tests, analysis of variance (ANOVA) and correlations, as well as Chi Square. My students usually experience an "ah ha" moment after just a short time with me! What about psychology? Need help with your studies? I can help you with pretty much any field of psychology, e.g., your basic psychology course, your research methods course, as well as many others. My specialty is research methods; that is what my master's degree is. I also have spent 16 years working in research. Please let me help you with your studies!

I have bachelor's and master's degrees in psychology, and am working on a doctorate in psychology, as well. I have 16 plus years of experience working social research. I have also taught at the college level for 11 years. My approach is to present real life examples of the theories in textbooks for psychology and statistics. For statistics, I will show you how to solve the problems "longhand" and then show you how Excel and/or SPS can make your life easier, by doing the mathematics for you. I believe students need to understand where the numbers come from, before using a computer method to help them with the math involved. I would like information on the topic you need help with before our session, so I can be sure I tutor you on the specific topic with which you need help.

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.

Psychology

I have a bachelor's in psychology, a master's in social research and am working on a PhD in psychology. I have taught psychology since 2003 at the college level. I believe the easiest way to learn is by using differing methods, including reading, listening, creating mind maps and other visuals, etc. I truly enjoy teaching.

Statistics

I have a bachelor's, master's and am in a PhD program in psychology. I have had multiple statistics courses. I have also taught statistics since 2003. I believe that using real life examples helps people understand the concepts in statistics.

Helpful for project paper — Jean was very helpful in that she simplifies the concepts to better understand what is being asked from the professor. She is able to instruct with different points of view. If you don't understand what she is saying one way, she takes a concept and is able to help you understand it in multiple ways. She doesn't waste your time with her own 'stories', or life example that can drag a session out ...
