I am a Masters student with a 3.9 GPA studying Industrial/Organizational Psychology. I have taken many years of statistics, both at the undergraduate and the graduate level, and have years of tutoring experience. As a high schooler, I independently tutored a young girl in both reading and math for several years. Separately, I also tutored two young women for whom English was a second language.
In my undergraduate career at UCSD, I was a teaching assistant for an upper division psychology course. As part of my graduate assistantship, I also assist or instruct (depending on the semester) for undergraduate statistics. I host office hours and SPSS-based labs, grade assignments, present material, provide study tools, and act as as a support system for my students. I have experience writing graduate school application essays and reviewing others'. Lastly, I have a wealth of scientific writing experience thanks to years of research and Master's thesis work.
I am passionate about helping people achieve that "A ha!" moment. I have a true love of learning - it has propelled me to pursue a graduate degree and to assist others in doing the same. I enjoy building relationships with those I can assist, seeing them grow and make strides. There's nothing quite like the confusion of feeling lost in one's classes. I understand this feeling, I empathize with it, and I commit myself to lessen and, ultimately, eliminate it for others.
It would be my pleasure to assist you in gaining confidence with all aspects of research methods! If you're interested, please reach out to me.
