This passion was reinforced by my experiences as a statistics and psychology tutor for two academic years at the Los Angeles Valley College.

I have helped college students with both applied and mathematical statistics courses as a tutor at a busy Los Angeles Valley College tutoring center. During my time there, I helped students with study skills, test preparation, assignments and projects, and developing a better understanding of complex concepts. I believe the best way to explain statistical concepts is by highlighting their application to real-world scenarios. I look forward to helping you develop mathematical thinking patterns essential for success in your statistics courses.
I have excelled in all my college-level psychology courses as I pursue a Bachelor's of Arts degree in Psychology. I plan to apply to PhD. programs in clinical psychology after earning my BA. I tutored community college students in Psychology for more than two years and thoroughly enjoyed it. In my tutoring sessions, I focus on the connection between a particular concept and the larger picture that it fits into. I look forward to helping you with abnormal psychology, cognitive psychology, social psychology, and biological (physiological psychology).
I have been using SPSS extensively in both college level courses and in guided and independent research projects. I have helped students effectively use this powerful program in their statistics, psychology, nursing, public health, and business courses for more than four years as a tutor here on WyzAnt and at the Los Angeles Valley College Tutoring Lab. Additionally, I have used SPSS for my independent research project in cognitive psychology to collect, clean, organize, and analyze the research data. I look forward to helping you navigate and utilize SPSS effectively in your psychology, statistics, and research methods courses.
In addition to having a bachelor's of science degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry, I have had extensive experience with a variety statistical techniques used in bio-statistics in both independent and guided research settings using IBM SPSS. These include fecundity analysis in ecology, probabilities in population genetics and epidemiology, validity, reliability, and prevalence analysis in epidemiology. These areas of interest include basic statistical techniques such as t-test, ANOVA using F-test, MANOVA, Chi-Square analysis, non parametric techniques such as Wilcoxon signed-rank test, Kruskal-Wallis test, sign test, etc. Finally, I have a high level of familiarity with both simple and multiple linear regression and non-parametric alternatives such as Spearman's rank correlation.
I have native level fluency in reading, speaking, and writing Hindi. I have about 8 years of formal schooling in this language along with practical experience conversing with the locals in India for more than 10 years. I can not only help you with mastering the pronunciations and grammar, but can also help you with understanding the cultural context. Whatever you learning goals may be, I look forward to helping you in connecting with about 258 million native Hindi speakers.
