I lead my students to the answers and do my best to ensure that they’re learning, and not just doing their homework. Also, because of my background in positive psychology, I implement a lot of encouragement into my sessions to decrease anxiety. Statistics is a complicated subject for almost every psychology student, so anxiety is abundant. Even when the material is learned by the student, anxiety can prohibit students from recall. Building confidence and breaking down the perception that statistics is impossible is as important as teaching statistics itself.
I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and I’m working on a graduate degree in applied sport psychology. I tutored intro to statistics for psychology students for three semesters. I have also been involved in three separate research studies, two of which received awards. I’m currently a graduate assistant for my schools tutoring and testing center.
Christian was my Supplemental Instructor (turbo tutor) for Statistics several times. He really knows the material and communicates it well. The feedback from students was very positive. He definitely helped them.
Christian Corah is an outstanding instructor and should be considered a top choice for anyone seeking support in psychology courses including statistics and research methods. Based on Christian’s exceptional performance in statistics I invited him to be my Supplementary Instructor (SI) for the next semester’s course. This job is similar to a teaching assistant, except that his role was supporting instruction rather than grading. The responsibilities of being an SI include attending all lectures, labs, and holding office hours and study sessions each week. His passion for statistics and learning was displayed weekly with his engagement and ability to teach concepts to students, and I was particularly impressed with his balance of supporting students while never doing the work for them. His work habits are superb; he was prompt, reliable, knowledgeable, completed tasks efficiently and with attention to detail. The students rated Christian high in all aspects of his evaluations including availability, knowledge, communication, respect, and using multiple examples to explain a statistical procedure.
Christian has strong written and oral communication skills. His oral communication has been developed through his leadership training and experience working with students while being a residence assistant (RA). In particular, he has extensive experience mitigating conflict and managing crisis with other students and facilitating problem solving in an effective and diplomatic manner. Christian is well known with the students on campus for this kindness and leadership as an RA. His superb written skills are evidenced by the multiple papers he’s written while taking classes with me—he always received the highest or one of the highest grades on assignments.
Beyond his academic accomplishments, Christian has outstanding work ethic and he has accomplished a great deal more than just his academic and research skills. He is always respectful, conscientious, and thoughtful. I recommend him without reserve!
