Student Success Coaches:
Hi everyone! My name is Gemma and I'm a junior at Barrett, the Honors College, majoring in Psychology with minors in Sociology and Anthropology. I also work as a research assistant in the Emerging Minds Lab, a developmental psychology lab here on campus that studies young children and infants. I am a TA for Dr. C's PSY 101 (Intro to Psychology) and PSY 366 (Abnormal Psychology) classes this semester, so I am very comfortable tutoring students in those courses, as well as Research Methods, Social Psychology, Introduction to Statistics, Abnormal Child Psychology, Intro to Cognitive Neuroscience, Memory and Cognition, the Psychology of Love and Intimacy, and more! Also, as an honors student, I'm happy to help generate ideas to fulfill honors credit through your psychology courses. I'm an avid reader and writer as well and can help with formal academic writing/essays
Kiana Guarino is a senior undergraduate at ASU where she is working to complete her Bachelors of Science in Psychology with a minor in Statistics. She is currently a part of two labs on campus, the Research in Prevention Lab and the Social Addictions Impulse Lab, and is a great resource for those interested in getting involved with research. She attended the Society for Prevention Research 2022 academic conference in Seattle, where she had the honor of presenting her original research poster as first author. Kiana is interested in pursuing a PhD in quantitative psychology and hopes to one day work for a research university. If you need extra help in PSY 230, PSY 290, PSY 330, or any upper division statistics courses, Kiana has the most
experience in these topics and is happy to help.
