My teaching has been at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. I can tutor in almost any sociology course, but most of my teaching experience has been in criminology.

My tutoring focuses on three areas -- sociology/criminal justice, English, and SAS/SPSS programming. I have a PhD in sociology and 11 years of experience teaching full-time at the university level. My teaching has been at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. I can tutor in almost any sociology course, but most of my teaching experience has been in criminology.

I have worked with a number of students individually and really enjoy it. In addition to subject matter tutoring, I can help with term papers, research projects, theses, and dissertations. I can also help with English reading, writing, grammar, and ACT/SAT test preparation in these areas.

Effective writing has always been crucial to my work as an academician and researcher. I have helped many students improve their writing skills.

In addition, I have found that many students in the social sciences struggle with research methods and statistics more than any other courses. I very much enjoy helping students unravel the mysteries of these topics. My experience in research is not merely academic. For about 10+ years, I conducted research full-time. I can, therefore, bring real-world experiences to students who need help in these areas. My research experience also includes a number of years experience with SAS data management and statistical analysis programming. Learning SAS can be daunting, but I can help.

My general approach is to first understand your goals and expectations for the tutoring experience. Then we can determine the best approach(es) and tools to overcome any obstacles and to ensure your success. If a certain approach isn't working, we'll try something else until we find a solution. I'm not about what works for me. I'm about what works for you.

Knowledgeable, friendly, tutor

I went to Amy pretty lost about how to approach a big project for a graduate-level research methods class, and left feeling not only more confident in my understanding of the expectations of the project, but also in my ability to break what I needed to do apart into manageable pieces. Amy was patient, clearly very knowledgeable of the material, and yet still made sure to give me agency over how I wanted to structure my project so as to foster both a sense of responsibility and also empowerment. I would definitely recommend her to others!

Alexandra, 1 lesson with Amy

Very knowledgeable

Amy is very knowledgeable and patient. I was struggling with an introductory programming course and she helped me understand the basic concepts in a way that everything made sense after the session was over. I highly recommend her.

Eli, 1 lesson with Amy

Very knowledgeable

Very good at discovering what your weaknesses are on a subject and focusing on that. So you are getting help where you most need it!

Colleen, 2 lessons with Amy

Good Job

She was patient and answered my questions. I was very intimidated by SPSS and totally confused. After the tutoring session, I felt much better.

Nancy, 1 lesson with Amy

Worth every penny! Thank you, Amy!

Amy is willing to give of her time and expertise, knowledgeable, qualified, intelligent, detail-oriented, MAD formatting skills! Not only is she willing to help, she did it on the spot for me, and I appreciate it more than I can explain. I feel so fortunate to have gotten such skilled help.
