About Nicole

Hi, my name is Nicole and I just recently moved to the Phoenix area from Las Vegas. I graduated from the International Baccalaureate program in high school with a 4.4 GPA and was a Commended National Merit Scholar. I went to the University of Nevada of Las Vegas where I graduated with Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering with a GPA above a 3.0. As a tutor, I have worked with students from middle school through college. My tutoring career had many different types experiences including one-on-one tutoring, drop-in centers, and teaching lessons in a classroom setting.

Throughout college I worked as a tutor at the Academic Success Center Tutoring Center at UNLV. This was a drop-in tutoring center where students from the university could come in and get help for their classes. Here I tutored subjects in math up to calculus as well as chemistry. During my last two years at UNLV, I worked as an instructor in the Academic Success Center's Math Bridge program. This program helped incoming freshman and college students that are struggling in math prepare to take a math placement test to help them move forward in school. The Math Bridge program was set up as a class that met on a regular basis. I provided lessons and gave practice exams. I catered my lessons to those subjects in which people were struggling the most. During this, I could see where each student individually was struggling and worked with them on and one-on-one basis. Outside of these jobs, I also have experience with private one-on-one tutoring with students from middle school through college.

I understand that not everyone learns the same and I do my best to change my tutoring styles and the method in which I approach problems to best fit the students. I can tutor in a way that is almost like a teacher, creating lesson plans and giving lectures. I can have the students really interactive and doing problems on their own while I guide them. I can use real life examples to help them relate to what they are learning. I pass on tips and tricks that I came up with myself or that I have learned along the way. Sometimes I like to switch methods up to see what works the best or as the student progresses in understanding.

Tutoring has probably been one of my favorite jobs. I really enjoy math and chemistry and tutoring has given me the opportunity to share that with others while also helping me improve. I think my favorite part of tutoring is the look students get when the material clicks, the happiness they have when they finally understand what they've been struggling with.

Here are a list of subjects I have tutored, but please feel free to ask about subjects that are not mentioned below:

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
