Wesleyan University (College of Letters)
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. I am a Wesleyan graduate who currently teaches Statistics for Psychological Research at Hunter College.

Adam guided me through all the exercises and impressed me with his profound knowledge, respect, and great energy. I would highly recommend him to students seeking guidance in statistics and using SPSS.
Adam was great and very patient. He gave me different ways to view a solution of a problem and I remembered a lot of stuff while we were going through. Totally recommending him as a GRE tutor.
I wouldn't have been able to figure out my daughter 's math homework in s million years. Adam explained it to her over the phone very well and she understood. We will definitely use him again
He really wanted to make sure that I understood the basic statistics before going on with harder more complicated problems. We were practicing solving problems with a pen and paper as well did some 4 or 5 quizzes online.
As other reviewers commented, he was patient and precise. I was nervous about my subject to study, and he helped me feel more at ease with the material by explaining step by step. With a noisy environment, he tried to concentrate on the subject. I could see his passion for his work. I would recommend him to anyone struggling with psychology.
Adam was very knowledgeable in behavioral statistics and was able to help me understand the SPSS system. During our lesson we worked on completing an SPSS assignment and Adam was very helpful in my understanding the work.
Adam helped me understand standard deviation and z scores a lot better. I was very nervous about the content of my Statistics course but he helped me feel more at ease with the material . I would definitely reccomend him to anyone struggling with math.
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.
