About Scott

Whoever said "nothing worth doing is easy" probably didn't take statistics or research methods.

Do you want to learn skills or deepen your understanding of difficult concepts? Do you need to prepare for a quiz or test? Perhaps you want to have a homework assignment explained to you.

Even if it's last minute, I can help you with all of your learning needs. My most recent student emailed me at 11 PM for a midnight class deadline. I sent her a targeted tutorial and she scored 100% on her quiz!

For more than ten years, I've taught a wide range of students topics in education, psychology, research methods, and statistics. I consider it a great honor to help students learn, so get in touch now.

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.

Elementary Math

I've been teaching early math for almost 20 years, and I've learned to teach math in a way that makes sense to young students. I've worked with students who need to catch up, keep up, and get ahead. When you work with me, I give a diagnostic assessment that tells me exactly where to focus our time, which will be spent with fun and engaging activities and TONS of high-fives, fist-bumps, and encouragement. Each one of my students gets a learning plan and progress reports, too!

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have over 700 power points in my archives that I've created. I can make you a master in PowerPoint and make your presentation the BEST in class!

Microsoft Word

I use Microsoft Word every day for at least 3 hours of writing and editing. I know the functions very well and can make you a master of MS word in a short time!

Psychology

My doctoral degree is a Ph.D., and is accredited by the American Psychological Association. I have taught close to 20 different courses to undergraduates and graduate students since 2005. I can ensure you master your subject or AP psychology exam.

SPSS

I know SPSS better than I know some members of my own family. I use SPSS almost every day, and during the football season, I play with SPSS to see if I can predict teams that go to the playoffs. Let me use my expertise with SPSS to help you with all of your needs!

Statistics

If you need help on analyses or exams, I am sure I can help you succeed. I have been teaching, learning, and using statistics for over 10 years mostly in the social sciences. I am an actively publishing doctoral faculty member and teach research methods as well.

Writing

I have over ten manuscripts published in rigorous peer-reviewed journals. Some of these journals are scientific and some are practitioner journals, the latter of which require a more prosaic style rather than a technical expository style. I taught MLA and APA style for multiple classes about writing in the social sciences at East Carolina University and at two UMass campuses. I understand and can teach the fundamental mechanics and applications of word use, sentence formation, paragraphing, essays, and longer pieces.

Effective and efficient tutorials!

Scott created tutorials based on the concepts and problems I had difficulty with. He identified the problems I had and clearly explained each problem thoroughly. I highly recommend his service! I feel much more comfortable with Statistics.
