About Mike

I taught college-level psychology, research methods, and statistics for over 25 years, and won several teaching awards in that time. In my course evaluations, I got the most praise from students for being friendly, knowledgeable, and organized.

I love to learn new things myself, and I love to help students learn. Nothing is more rewarding for me than seeing that moment when "it all clicks together."

I taught probability and statistics to psychology majors, so I am good at explaining these concepts to students with little math in their background, as well as students who are not confident in their math skills. Additionally, I don't just know probability and statistics as an academic subject, I used them directly in my research.

I have 25+ years teaching psychology courses, from Introductory Psychology to honors and graduate-level courses. I am most familiar with Cognitive Psychology, Sensation and Perception, and Research Methods, but having taught Introductory Psychology, am familiar with at least the basic concepts across the whole field.

Professors do a wide variety of writing, especially if they spend time as an administrator, as I did. I used MS Word to format a wide variety of documents, from APA formatted manuscripts to handouts, brochures, conference presentations and newsletters.

Please contact me with questions about your specific needs. After 3 sessions, I give a 15% discount for every additional session in a 30-day period.
