About Christal

I am a current first year PhD student in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Missouri. I graduated from the University of Mississippi with my Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and a minor in sociology. I maintained a 3.98 GPA throughout my undergraduate career while working 30+ hours a week, and I would love to help you out with getting closer to your own academic goals. Beginning my freshman year on campus, I worked as a tutor for numerous student athletes, tutoring in a variety of subjects. Working with athletes, I learned how to maintain students' interest and increase confidence in learning among diverse groups, including those with learning and attention deficits. The main subjects I have been successful at tutoring for the past four years have been writing, psychology, sociology, and statistics. I have worked with numerous college students through my Wyzant tutoring and also with two private tutoring companies in Oxford, MS. I truly enjoy making a difference in students' educational experiences.

I strongly believe that being tutored should not feel like a chore. Learning should be interesting and fun! It's my philosophy that learning should not feel like work, and I do my best to make sure all of my tutor sessions remain interesting yet productive for students. I believe in respecting the students I work with and garnering their respect and attention as well. I feel that the students should find in me an encouraging spirit and a dedication to their excellence. A tutoring experience should always be a positive one!

Thank you for your interest in working with me! I encourage you to get in contact with me and schedule your first session on the path to your academic success and independence!

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.

ADHD

As a tutor for the athletic department at my university for the past four years, I have worked with numerous students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and other learning disabilities. I have developed various strategies to help maintain the attention of these students and help them succeed in their courses. As a private tutor, I have also worked with multiple students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and have had great success at helping them improve their scores in their courses.

Dyslexia

Working as a private tutor, I have gained experience with several students diagnosed with dyslexia. Because of the unique frustrations that come with this diagnosis, I have become adept at reducing students' worries and helping them become more confident and independent in their learning abilities. I have also done well with encouraging students to take advantage of accommodations to help ease the issues involved in having dyslexia.

Psychology

I am currently a doctoral candidate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Missouri. I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a 4.00 GPA in my major (psychology). I have tutored students in psychology since my freshman year of undergraduate. I can tutor any psychology subject, as I have both broad and more specific knowledge in the area.

Sociology

I graduated with a sociology minor at the University of Mississippi. I completed 18 hours in sociology courses and tutored courses outside of my previously completed courses as well. I have also served as a student athlete tutor in the subject of sociology for four years.

Statistics

I have worked as a statistics tutor since my freshman year on campus. I have tutored athletes and regular students alike. I am currently completing graduate level coursework in statistics at the University of Missouri, where I plan on receiving a graduate minor in statistics.

Writing

I was hired to work at the Writing Center on campus. I also have tutored athletes in Writing 100, 101, 102, and 250.
