About Adam

I am a Wesleyan graduate who currently teaches Statistics for Psychological Research at Hunter College. Students in this course are taught both general statistical concepts and statistical concepts of especial relevance to psychology and trained in the use of SPSS. Before I became a lecturer at Hunter, I was a post-baccalaureate student there and served as a tutor and teaching assistant for the class I am now teaching.

I am very comfortable with mathematics and quantitative reasoning, having received an A+ as a student and again the following semester as a tutor in the above-mentioned statistics class, a 5 on my AP Calculus BC exam, and a perfect 170 on the Math section of the GRE. In addition, I have received a score in the top 1% on the Verbal section of the GRE (169), on the GRE psychology subject test (850), on the LSAT (173), and on the SAT (1590, on the old version out of 1600).

My bachelor's degree from Wesleyan is in philosophy and literature, but I have spent the past two years immersed in the discipline of psychology, taking fifteen psychology courses at Hunter during this period, of which I received a grade of A+ in twelve and an A in the remaining three. My coursework has covered every major sub-field within psychology, including cognitive, abnormal, social, personality, neuroscience, and experimental methods. At Hunter and at Wesleyan, I received training in a range of styles of academic and creative writing, from APA-style psychological writing to expository writing to short story writing. This year, I coauthored an article on introspection and phenomenology that will appear in the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Phenomenological Psychopathology.

But this educational experience and test-taking ability would be worth little here if it weren’t coupled with a love of tutoring. Tutoring is a thrill for me, and I think that manifests in my tutoring style. I love empowering a tutee to deal with material that they previously found daunting, even overwhelming. I'm patient, and I make an effort to meet the tutee at their level of understanding.
