I have experience teaching at renowned liberal arts colleges and universities in the US, Canada, and Austria. I have taught both undergraduate and graduate courses in sub-disciplines in psychology as well as research methods and statistics.

Prior to these teaching experiences, I was trained for and delivered one-on-one tutoring sessions at teaching and learning centers at both my undergraduate and graduate institutions, often with ESL tutees. I also have extensive experience assisting individual or small groups of students during my courses. I enjoy tutoring and teaching because I value seeing the moments of insight, when things start to "click."

My earliest teaching assistant and tutoring experiences were in statistics and research methods. Since then, I've taught stats to undergraduates and R and psychometrics to graduate students. I have been using SPSS for 15 years, and R for over 5.

I have longstanding passion for psychology and the sciences that drove me to both get a PhD and tutor and help others along the way. I have a track record of peer-reviewed publications that indicate my success in conducting psychological science.

Baseball

I began learning baseball as a child and played through my youth. In high school I played for a team at the highest level of competitive traveling baseball in my region (American Legion). I was primarily a pitcher, so I had to be well-versed in all of the defensive scenarios for every player on the field. I continued playing in college and for a metropolitan men's league team in my early twenties.

SPSS

Mike P. was an excellent instructor! He is very patient and through. He helped explain things that I could not understand from my textbook or professor. I wish I came to him sooner! Very helpful!! I enjoyed our lesson and will seek more tutoring help in the future.

Alexander, 2 lessons with Mike

Extremely knowledgable & Best Tutor!

Mike is amazing! He extremely intelligent and a gifted professor. Every single tutoring session we've had I have learned more than I've learned in a classroom. He is patient and very easy to work with. I was pleased by the personalized information that was given to learn SPSS for the research project I have been working on. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who needs help and wants to learn.

Great Teacher.

Mike did a great job. I have a hard time using computer software for class. In this case it was SPSS for statistics. Mike was able to guide me through the steps to be successful. I will gladly use him again in the future.
