About Nicole

My name is Nicole B. and I am an experienced tutor who is new to the Birmingham area. I just recently finished my PhD in Chemistry from Louisiana State University and since I am new to city I am looking to again build up my tutoring business. I am able to tutor most subjects, however I do specialize in math and science. I also can help with Spanish. I have over 10 years of tutoring experience and have the ability to work with any student, ranging from grade school to adults. I am very patient and efficient, and love it when I am able to help students grasp difficult concepts.

What I feel makes me an outstanding tutor is the fact that I really focus on getting to know my students so that they are not only more comfortable and receptive to the material at hand, but also so that I can modify the way in which I get them to understand the information. This is because I am very aware that each student is different in that the way in which they learn may differ from the next.

I not only hold a B.S in chemistry from Winston Salem State University, I also hold a PhD in the field of Analytical Chemistry from LSU. Thus, not only am I am expert in my field, I have, in addition to my studies, been active in tutoring privately as well as establishing a free tutoring program at my church which is still ongoing. In my experience in tutoring chemistry, as well as other science courses, I have acquired the talent of breaking down the concepts into more manageable step that will help the student in grasping the information better.

I hold a minor in Spanish, and I also took some of my upper level courses during a semester abroad in Alicante, Spain. I am able to help with writing, speaking, as well as will learning the many verbs and conjugations of the tenses.

Math is probably my favorite subject to tutor and I also hold a minor in this field. I can tutor most upper level math courses, but I especially like to work with children on the basics. In my experience I have encountered many children who lack the basic mathematical skills necessary to excel in upper level courses, and have seen first hand how discouraging it can be. Thus, I really get joy from teaching the basics in order to help build the strong foundation needed to be successful in more advanced coursework.

My credentials alone indicate my capabilities and knowledge in the field of math and science, but it is my love for teaching, moulding, and readying young minds that really make me the most qualified. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions and I will be happy to answer them. I hope to hear from you!

Geometry

Nicole B. taught my daughter's first online tutoring session. It was successful in that my child quickly acclimated to Nicole's tutoring methods and was able to quickly grasp several concepts making the most of our hour long session. After only one session she stated "I realize I've been overthinking this" She looks forward to continuing sessions with Nicole B.
