About Leyla

Hello. My name is Leyla. I’m a psychologist who loves to teach as well as keep on learning. I studied psychology at Duke University as well as New York University, where I received my Ph.D. Since 1998, I’ve been an instructor in the psychology department of a major university in New York. I teach classes on subjects as varied as research methods, cross-cultural psychology, traumatic stress, and romantic love. I have mentored many students throughout their educational process, and helped them through thesis and paper writing.

In addition to teaching, I also work as a researcher and have worked at several non-profit agencies that deliver social services to individuals and families who experience psychiatric disabilities and homelessness. I’m highly proficient in SPSS and statistical data analysis. Through this work, I've mentored student interns on how to conduct research, use statistics to analyze data, and write class papers and theses.

On a more personal note, I’m also a long-time practitioner of tai chi, bagua and meditation, and a certified medical qigong therapist and instructor of Earth Qigong for Women. I come from a multicultural background and am multilingual in English, Turkish, and some French — plus a smattering of Italian!

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.
