University of Wisconsin, Madison
CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice (Master's)
City University of New York - Graduate Center (Enrolled)
I am a criminal justice Ph.D. student at the City University of New York Graduate Center. I have been teaching statistics and data analysis in New York City at the undergraduate level for 9 years and at the graduate (master's) level for 5 years. I have taught statistics from both a conceptual and pencil-and-paper mathematical perspective and have also incorporated the use of software, such as Excel, SPSS and R, in my teaching.
I have worked with students with a wide range of experience with statistics and computer-based data analysis, from absolutely none to students actively using statistics and data analysis in their own careers. I have also done data analysis consulting for a variety of projects, both within and outside of the college environment.
As a student, I have taken a number of statistics classes and I understand the anxiety many people feel when faced with the material. When tutoring, my goal is to help students use the material that they have been given in their classes to understand the concepts and procedures of statistics and complete assignments, as well as incorporating additional material and exercises to supplement their primary instruction.

Kirste is an excellent tutor for me, and helps me to understand the more difficult concepts of Statistics and SPSS. She is also very reliable and responds to email in a timely manner. I highly recommend anyone who needs help with Statistics to email Kirste!
Kirsten is excellent. She is able to distill complex ideas into a simple form for folks to understand and do it with patience and clarity. She also exhibits a degree of flexibility to make herself available at unusual times which is convenient for me based on my changing work schedule.
Kirste is one of the best tutors I have ever met who are able to put into practice the technical terms. She is practical and most of all sincere.
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.
I have extensive experience using SPSS, both as a teacher and as a researcher. I have used SPSS in both the undergraduate and graduate classes that I have been teaching for the last several years, and I am proficient in the use of SPSS syntax.
I have been teaching statistics for the last 8 years at a college in New York City, to both undergraduates and master's level students. I have taught the subject using both a manual approach (students calculate formulas) and a computer-based approach (students use statistical software programs). I can help students with the use of probability in statistics, as well as the process of calculating and interpreting descriptive and inferential statistical data.
