About Claudia

I have studied and conducted Psychology research academically (earning a BA and an MSc in the field) and professionally. Though I primarily tutor statistics to graduate and professional learners, I can tutor a wide range of subjects, from middle school math to advanced neuroscience. When working through tough concepts, I always make sure learners are able to understand and explain it in layman's terms. There is no point in memorizing a formula if you don't know when to use it.

It is important to me that subject material is learned both practically (can you use the right techniques and arrive at the right answer) and intuitively (why is that the right technique and what does that answer really mean). Being able to understand concepts in a way that is personally meaningful is a priority in every tutoring session I conduct. All sessions are tailored to the individual goals of my students. Contact me to discuss your goals and create a plan to achieve them.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra forms the foundation of my work. When I first studied the material, I had no idea that I would come to use it so frequently. I wish I had been able to make the connection between the formulas and my goals. With my now broader perspective, I like to help students to embrace algebra on a personal level instead of depending solely on rote memorization.

Microsoft Excel

As a certified Microsoft Office Specialist and Microsoft Excel expert with hands-on Excel experience in both academia and business, my knowledge extends from handy shortcuts (did you know you can autofit columns?) to advanced techniques such as macros, solver, and pivot tables. Because this software can be used in so many ways, my lessons focus directly on what is relevant for my students' goals, such as analysis, visualization, or organization.

Microsoft Word

I am a certified Microsoft Office Specialist experienced in tasks such as creating styles, tables of contents, and sharing options. With these skills, students and professionals gain the ability to make Word documents that fulfill their visual goals while maintaining a high level of consistency and easy updating.

Psychology

Psychology is my passion. I have a neuron tattooed on my arm, which has proven to be a convenient diagram when I randomly end up explaining neuroscience to friends and family. Graduate studies have allowed me to delve deep into learning, cognition, pharmacology, hormones and neurotransmitters, and cultural phenomena. A liberal arts undergraduate education has provided a well-rounded base, including humanities, anthropology, sociology, language, logic, and biology. I think both research and theory are great fun, and I'll help you to find the excitement in them!

Public Speaking

In completing my undergraduate dissertation, I defended my work with a 45-minute presentation of my work, followed by 15-minutes for questions. This prepared me to later present a poster in addition to two conference presentations of my graduate research for my MSc dissertation. Though I was once nervous, I now love speaking to an audience and helping other people to find their public speaking voice as well. Having tutored a wide variety of students and communicated findings to technological novices, development teams, executives, students, and more, I enjoy tailoring presentations to the target audience.

SPSS

SPSS has been my primary analysis tool in research, including descriptive statistics, multiple regressions, ANOVAs, MANCOVAs, t-tests, normality tests, and more. I have used SPSS for undergraduate and undergraduate coursework in addition to my own research and love to help students make the most of this statistical software.

Statistics

With over 8 years of research experience and a year of tutoring at PhD, Masters, and professional levels, I tailor lessons to the unique needs of my students. Statistics was once my greatest weakness, and is now a strength. Statistics are a tool for learning rather than a roadblock, and my goal is to make that transition easier for my students.
