I have a BA in English Education and minored in Psychology. For the past 4 years I have been a high school teacher in The Bronx. I am currently taking 3 undergraduate courses that are prerequisites for the masters program in Counseling Psychology; which I will be applying for again in the fall. One particular course, Statistics, is becoming more and more of a challenge everyday. My brain does not like math (as I was an English teacher) so is there any advice out there that would help me? My future as a counselor is at stack if I don't do well in this course. A teacher needs a tutor or help!!please!! :) thank you -ps99

Hi, have you tried going to the library to get a book or two on word problems or algebra? They helped me with statistics.
My college also has a study lab that was open late for non-traditional students. You might want to check that out.
You might be able to talk to a tutor at your school about what you might be having problems with. Also, if you got a bad grade on the first test, don't worry. When I went, my class had a mean grade of 69.7 and a median grade of 75. I had one of the 69's and ended up with an A in the class.
Don't hesitate to ask questions. That's why teachers tell you when they are available. wink

You might check out the Cliff\'s Review of Statistics & and The Cartoon Guide to Statistics for an easy to understand overview of major statistical methods.
