About Theodore

Hi! I am currently a graduate student at Rutgers University - Camden pursuing a thesis-track Master's degree. Throughout my undergrad, I was hired by Tusculum College as a psychology/English tutor. More recently, I am a substitute teacher for Source4Teachers with a substitute teacher certification for grades pre-K to 12th throughout New Jersey.

My teaching/tutoring style focuses on encouraging reflective judgment so that my students are able to answer questions like "Why do I need to know this?" "Why is this important?" and "How is this useful?" I believe that it is important for all of my students to be able to understand the information being taught to them, and I also encourage students to try and find flaws in what is being taught.

I also believe in portraying information in a manner that is most interesting to the students. Chances are, I can tailor lessons based on subjects that the student finds interesting, academic or non-academic. I believe that this not only allows the student to become more engaged with the material, but to also better relate to what is being taught so that they retain it for a longer period of time.

I have been doing psychological research and tutoring since 2012. Additionally, I have extensive knowledge of different educational psychology theories to better teach students, as well as the experience and flexibility to find ways to help students understand complicated material.

I am well versed in APA-styled writing, and have some experience with MLA-styled papers. As an undergrad, a focus on writing papers within short time frames was emphasized, therefore I have written dozens of papers that have been consistently improving with each new paper.

If you would like me to be your tutor, feel free to contact me! I generally have a flexible schedule and am willing to meet at any place of your choosing. If you have any needs or concerns, I will try my best to accommodate you.

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.

Psychology

I am a Psychology major with extensive research history in terms of social, cognitive, and behavioral psychology. I was hired as a tutor for Tusculum College for two years before pursuing my Master's at Rutgers University. I tutor based on the person's interests, using those interests to help facilitate a better connection with the material.

SPSS

As part of my psychology studies, SPSS was an integral part to conducting research projects and understanding the studies surrounding psychology. I have knowledge of how to use the program, as well as how to help individuals interpret the results they may get. I refer to external materials such as the SPSS Survival Manual to help individuals further understand the complexities behind the SPSS program.

Writing

I have written numerous papers based on APA-format psychology journals, therefore my writing expertise is centered around academic papers rather than creative writing papers. To help with an individual's writing, I proofread their work, highlighting some (but not all) mistakes, and suggestions on how to improve their writing overall.
