About Norman

I am a retired university professor with a PhD in Experimental Psychology. For 30 years I taught psychology and introductory statistics for psychology students, nurses, education and other students. My tutoring during the last few years has been both in-person and online with high-school and college students. I would be pleased to take the time and care to help you discover and retain what you need to know about statistics, pre-algebra, algebra and psychology.

I do ONLINE tutoring using Skype - which may be downloaded to your computer free - as well IN-PERSON tutoring either at your home or in a public place.

Let's get your problems solved and let's both have the satisfaction of you improving your performance in these classes!

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.

Statistics

I am a retired university professor with a PhD in Experimental Psychology. I taught statistics for 30 years to university students and, since retiring, have tutored many university and high-school students in statistics.

I am always delighted when students realize that statistics is not as difficult to master as they initially thought. This realization comes because I use a very effective technique to explain the core concepts of central tendency, variability, sampling distributions, description, and inference. With a good understanding of these core concepts, you will be able to confidently complete the calculations of statistics problems and apply your knowledge beyond the tutoring sessions.

I am available to help you obtain a more thorough understanding of the material you have already covered in your statistics class so you can maximize your score on the final exam. It is best to master that material now, not waiting until the last minute before your final. I am also available to help you understand the material you are currently studying. This includes your current homework and preparation for you next midterm exam.

I look forward to working with you as your statistics tutor and helping you discover that statistics is not as difficult as you may have thought!
