SUNY Oneonta (Psychology)
Mount Holyoke College (Master's)
I graduated from SUNY Oneonta in 2009. While a student there, I was a peer tutor through the Center for Academic Development and Enrichment. As a tutor, I met with students in a confidential location, set learning goals with them, and assisted them with all sorts of topics and materials. I tutored for courses I excelled at and assisted students with reaching their goals and potentials for classes that they believed they struggled with.
In addition to tutoring various students on various topics, I was a teaching assistant for psychology research methods while at SUNY Oneonta and also took classes to better improve my skills as a tutor. Such classes were offered by the Center for Academic Development and Enrichment so that any tutor could sign up for them and learn ways in which to better assist students. Through the classes, I achieved Levels 1-3 of the International Tutor Training Program Certification.
After graduating from SUNY Oneonta, I then went on to receive my Masters degree in Psychology and Education at Mount Holyoke College. While I was a graduate student conducting my own research and completing my own coursework, I also worked as a lab instructor for research methods for one year, and statistics my second year. As a lab instructor, I supervised students as they worked in research groups, instructed them in a classroom setting on various topics relevant to the course, and met with students on a one to one basis as needed, At the conclusion of my time as a lab instructor, I found that I have a passion for assisting individuals learn topics so that they may fulfill their educational duties, especially those individuals who choose to reach out for assistance because they know it would help them succeed.
I was a statistics lab instructor at Mount Holyoke College. As a lab instructor, I introduced and taught students how to use SPSS appropriately, relevant to whatever statistical tests and problems were being discussed in the course.
I have also used statistics and SPSS to complete my own independent research as an undergraduate and while conducting my own graduate research.
I also have experience being a teaching assistant for psychology research methods while a undergraduate student, where students learned how to use various statistical tests related to the social sciences.
I have a bachelors degree in psychology and criminal justice (a branch of sociology). Psychology and Sociology are both social sciences I am passionate about and have many facets of experience in courses and research relevant to them.

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.
