About Todd: If you had told me that I would become a stats tutor before entering the PhD program, I would not have believed you. Who would have thought you could enjoy stats without being a mathematician. I have a master’s degree from Adams State University in Colorado and have been practicing as a counselor for over 20 years with many different populations. I am currently an LCMHC in NC and LPC in VA, where I practice play therapy and other modalities with children, adolescents, and their families. I recently purchased a cabin in the woods and found serenity with the animals and the trees in WNC.
Social Change Project: Volunteer with the Red Cross Disaster Team in WNC.
Social Change Project: Trauma Counselor for Children, adolescents, and families
My Advice to Walden Students
Remember to enjoy the journey and take many breaks for time for yourself, family, and friends.
Why I enjoy my role as a peer tutor:
I have enjoyed being a counselor for the past 20 years. I find my passion for assisting others in being that conduit of change.
What students can expect from me as a tutor:
You can count on me to be thoughtful and encouraging throughout the peer tutor process. I understand that coming to a statistics tutor might not be your favorite thing to do, and you might be frustrated with trying to learn the concepts on your own; however, come prepared with questions, and we will work on the ideas to help you retain the information for your success. I realize that not everyone learns in the same ways. I will prepare in ways to assist you in a multitude of ways that I hope you might find enjoyable.
