Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Hi. My name is Professor Robert Walker. I have a Ph.D. (2007) and MA (2001) in Transpersonal Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, with an emphasis in Transpersonal Education and Research. In addition, I have a BA in Psychology from Sonoma State University, with an emphasis in Humanistic-Transpersonal Psychology, and an AA from Sierra College, with an emphasis in psychology.

You may be interested to know that while I was a student at Sierra College and Sonoma State University, I quickly learned and developed an array of personalized college study skills; skills that helped me to excel in the coursework, 3.83 GPA. These skills were a major preparation for the high demands of intensive graduate studies, and transferable to everyday life and the workplace.

My teaching-tutoring philosophy is student-centered. As an evolving student, I believe that you have the innate capability to learn. My goal as a tutor is to help you discover and master your learning skills, while being tutored in the subject(s) area(s) you have requested guidance. Your unique learning style will determine how we intend to approach your overarching educational goal(s). After we determine your learning style, I will help you to (a) set realistic and achievable coursework goals, (b) determine the necessary steps and an appropriate pace to achieve these educational goals, and (c) guide you through these steps as you develop your mastery in the your subject area(s).
