Are you struggling in school? Does it feel like everyone else "gets it" except for you? Do you feel hopeless? What if I told you that you weren't necessarily the problem? What if there were a better way to learn? A method that goes beyond memorizing facts and figures, helping you understand why what you are learning is essential and how you can apply that knowledge to real-world situations? I will help you develop the critical thinking skills you need to succeed in any field.
With a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California, I have more than twenty years of experience working with students at all levels in both the US and Canada. I am a generalist, with areas of specialization including research applications, data analysis, criminology, social inequality, and the population determinants of health. Aside from these areas, I can help improve your writing, presenting, and research skills. Adult learner or working professional? I can assist with grant proposals, reports, technical writing, and popular computer applications. Let me show you how to work smart, not hard, when using applications like Excel, PowerPoint, Word, SPSS, STATA, and SAS.
Are you studying French? I am bilingual French-English and have taught in both languages at the university level, as well as helping high school students prepare for the International Baccalaureate Exams.
Thesis students are of particular interest for my work as a tutor. I have successfully mentors more than 20 MA/MS and 6 PhD theses with students who have gone on to careers where their writing and analytic skills stood out among their colleagues.
Whether you need assistance with a specific subject or want to get ahead in your studies, I can work with you to create a personalized learning plan that meets your needs. Together we will get you from scared to prepared.
