Hello wonderful students, I'm Dr. Nicole! I was selected as a Top 10% Tutor on Wyzant in 2020. I have a PhD in Health Psychology from the University of California, Irvine, and I served as a professor of psychology for several years at California State University, Fullerton.

Expert-Level Coaching:
As my student, you will get first class service because I've had over 15 years of experience as a professor, mentor, instructor, researcher, published author, and grant awardee. This means that you will get the same coaching from me that you would if you could schedule tutoring hours with your professor or academic advisor. I have the insight and experience to teach you how to compose a strong, logical, and compelling dissertation, thesis, or research paper.

My Teaching Style:
I am a patient and friendly teacher who understands that research does not necessarily come easily to everyone. I therefore breakdown all steps of the research process in an easygoing way that is accessible to every student.

My Online Teaching Services:
One of the ways I coach students is through face-to-face online lessons. Online sessions typically involve coaching on how to write a strong and logical academic paper.

My Editing/Proofreading Services:
I also provide professional editing and proofreading services. Students email their papers to me, and I provide detailed and thorough comments, suggestions, and edits using Track Changes with Word documents and Suggested Edits with Google Docs.

Competent Tutor

Nicole knows what she is doing with dissertation editing. I can see she would have been great to have all along the way as a dissertation coach. She has a positive, approachable personality and is a natural mentor.

Professional Development

This session focused on interpreting results for a regression on SPSS. She also recommended the best tables and figures to use in a poster and APA paper. Nicole also took the time to talk about her experience as a psychologist. She offered me advice on how to go about securing research positions in research labs.

Amazing Tutor!

Nicole is super fun to work with! She's very knowledgable about research and writing and she has a great personality. Nicole turned my final research project into a very focused and contextualized paper. Nicole answered all my questions very thoroughly and took the time to help me with my project. I am looking forward to working with Nicole again in the future!

Paper Editing

I have had the pleasure of working with Nicole for nearly a year. I have seen positive improvements in my Psychology courses, so much so that students have been coming to me for help! I am much more confident in test taking as well. She did a great job in building up my confidence. We have currently been doing offline edits on internship applications where she offers her critiques for my essays and I edit and send them back for further critiques. I think this is a great way to have a strong and competitive application. These are the services that Nicole offers!

Brilliant & Down-to-Earth

Nicole's kind, warm, and light-hearted approach to teaching certainly made my research methods assignment much more tolerable. She was able to explain concepts I was struggling to understand in a clear manner without being intimidating and was a huge help in helping me articulate my thoughts! :)
