About Kimberly

Having trouble with SPSS or Excel?

Do you have data but don't know what to do with it to complete a project, thesis or dissertation?

I can save you a lot of time and torment. I teach by example, and believe that when it comes to using software, learning by doing is best. I will walk you through everything you need to know, and then some.

I am a full-time, work-from-home statistical programmer-analyst for a major Midwest-based consulting firm, where I do predictive analytics. I've been an Excel user since the software was first introduced in 1985. It is a primary tool for my professional and personal life. I have been an SPSS user since programs were sent to mainframe computers on punch cards. That said, it won't surprise you to learn that I am also a grandma.

I am an experienced professional who made my way through graduate school teaching both introductory and upper-level college courses. I have a PhD, but please don't be intimidated by that or biased against me because of it. People find me young-at-heart, down-to-earth and easy to talk to. I am patient, accommodating and good at explaining concepts.

End anxiety, frustration, mistakes and wasted time. Hire me!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Microsoft Publisher

I am a very experienced user of Publisher. For several years I used Publisher to produce my church's 12-page monthly newsletter. I have also used Publisher to produce flyers to promote events, such as a once-a-month, themed, coffeehouse, an auction fundraiser, and an annual pledge campaign. I have also used Publisher to produce banners and other communication materials. I can send examples of my work if interested.

Social Studies

I believe I am qualified to tutor students in social studies because of my extensive education in the subject. My college major was social science. I was DIVISION SCHOLAR for University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown's 1984 graduating class. A Division Scholar is the top graduating senior in a subject area.

My undergraduate courses included: Introductory Sociology, Foundations of American Democracy, American Political Process, World Politics, Introductory Social Science, Economic Geography, Sociology of Family, Sociology of Aging, North American Indians, Ethics, Classical Sociological Theory, Personality, Social Research, Introductory Economics, Sociology of the Child, Social Stratification, Social Change, Contemporary Sociological Theory, and Latin American Politics.

I continued my education in social science at the graduate level, earning both an MA and PhD in sociology. My focus was demography. My coursework included: Classical Sociological Theory, Seminar in Teaching Sociology, Modern Social Theory, Social Change, Fertility and Family Planning, Population and Society, Sociology of the Future, Public Administration and Public Policy, Social Conflict, Social Psychology, Migration, Population of Third World Countries, Urban Geography, and Market Demography.

I was awarded teaching fellowships during my graduate education and adjunct teaching contracts afterward. I've taught courses at the college level, including: Introduction to Sociology, Sociology of the Family, and Population and Society.

I believe I am exceptionally qualified to tutor students at the high school and college level in social science.

Patient, thorough, and Just Awesome! — Kim helped guide me through SPSS after a 13 year hiatus. The way she guided me made me feel as if I never had a break in using it! Using Skype and the "Share your screen" feature, she helped guide me to figuring out what I was doing wrong and right, and helped explain what was wrong when applicable. She was very patient with me, very thorough in her descriptions and in wanting to see me perform th ...
