I've been teaching and tutoring in Colorado for many years; teaching at Colorado State University and the University of Denver as well as tutoring with nationwide tutoring agencies. Teaching is my passion and I excel at one-on-one tutoring.
I'm not the typical "homework helper." My approach to one-on-one tutoring is to guide my students with acquiring content skills as well as help them develop the confidence they need to succeed. I listen carefully to my students and work with them to devise strategies that work for them. Every student is unique and every session is personalized depending on where the student is at during that session.
With Math, Physics and Chemistry tutoring, my students learn to appreciate real-world applications of the concepts they grapple with making learning fun and relevant. What may appear to be a complicated problem at first, quickly becomes something quite easy to solve, much to the relief of my students!
Many parents have asked if I would work with their children to challenge and reignite their sense of curiosity and wonder of the world they live in. My students and I have worked on quantum mechanics, Einstein's theory of special relativity, biotechnology and a myriad of other student driven projects. They become active learners, guiding each session with their own curiosity and questions. Most importantly, they learn how to learn, a key skill to have in today's rapidly changing work environments.

What parents are saying about me:
“You have turned around my daughter's abilities in math and I believe in addition to your math and related knowledge you have a gift for instilling confidence. That is so, so unique!” - Diana B.
“Our son started working with Nazli this past June (2011) with the goal of increasing his starting ACT score of 25 as much as possible in order to apply to some very prestigious universities. During the 3 months we worked with her, she was always on time, very prepared, positive, patient, and knew exactly what skills to teach. The end result was a 6 point increase on the September ACT (a composite score of 31). We were thrilled since this puts our son into an entirely different category of applicants. I would not hesitate to recommend Nazli to any family. Thank you for everything you have done for Lane." – Shawna F.
