About Nazli


Bio

I specialize in SAT and ACT testprep. I also support my students with Physics, Chemistry and Math, including AP Calculus AB. My students have gone on to colleges and high schools of their choice including Harvard University, Princeton University, Berkeley University, University of Chicago and Phillips Exeter Academy. I work with students of all levels and backgrounds so that each of them achieves their goals and full potential.

I specialize in SAT and ACT testprep. I also support my students with Physics, Chemistry and Math, including AP Calculus AB. My students have gone on to colleges and high schools of their choice including Harvard University, Princeton University, Berkeley University, University of Chicago and Phillips Exeter Academy. I work with students of all levels and backgrounds so that each of them achieves their goals and full potential.

My Specialities:

Test Prep: ACT, SAT, PSAT, CLEPP, Accuplacer, GED, ASVAB.

My students scores usually increase by at least 2 to 4 points (ACT) and 150 to 200 points (SAT). My highest scoring students typically score over 31 for ACT and 2100 for SAT. Test taking strategies are custom tailores to each student. No cookie cutter one size fits all strategies that many TestPrep services offer their students! Many students struggle with stress and test taking anxiety. I help my students manage their anxiety using mindfulness based stress reduction techniques.

Math: Algebra - Pre-algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus including AP Calculus AB & BC

Science: Physics, AP Physics 1 & 2, Chemistry

My experience:

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.

My Education:

Mount Holyoke College, BA in Physics
University of Michigan, PhD in Geophysics
Research Assistant at Princeton University and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.

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., CO

"Nazli is a quiet wonder. She has the gift of instilling calm and confidence in her students. My son used her for Chemistry. She not only helped him pass this class with a solid B, but helped him enjoy it. As a result, I believe he will retain more of the information. If my son had not worked with Nazli, I believe he would have had very different "chemistry" experience." LJ - Denver

"Nazli helped me with SAT prep. She kept me calm and focused. I was really pleased with my test results and so were my parents." RJ - Denver

“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., Denver, CO

"Nazli N. has been a wonderful tutor for my son and my daughter. My son is a current 12th grader and he studied for the PSAT and SAT with Nazli last year. As a result of his PSAT score he is presently a National Merit a semi Finalist. He took the SAT only once and achieved his goal of a perfect math score. His overall scores was 2300. He was recently admitted to his first choice school, Princeton University. My 11th grade daughter is currently studying with Nazli. She just got her PSAT scores and she has the exact same overall score as her brother which should result in National Merit Scholar recognition. We are still studying for the SAT but Nazli's calm steady confident manner is infectious and perfect for the task of preparing students to successfully master the exam. We can't thank her enough!!" - AJ Jones, CO

Flexible and patient.

Nazli is a great tutor. She is able to adjust her lesson plan to accommodate what my daughter needs and is very patient and encouraging. Update: We are very impressed with Nazli. Since working with Nazli my daughter's confidence has really improved and we've seen an increase in her test scores. Highly recommend Nazli as a tutor.

Treva, 25 lessons with Nazli

Excellent tutor. Very professional.

Nazli has been helping my daughter with physics concepts for the last month. She has accomplished more in 6 sessions that my daughter's teacher did all semester. Nazli is thorough, patient, knowledgeable and very interested in her students' success. She is prompt, reliable and flexible. I would highly recommend Nazli for your tutoring needs.

Pam, 9 lessons with Nazli

Very good tutor

My daughter really appreciates the tutoring from Nazli and her grades have really improved. She especially likes the way the Nazli works with her to understand the concepts involved for long term success!

Patty, 22 lessons with Nazli

Very patient and great insight!

Nazli has not only been very patient with my son but she quickly recognized his strengths and weakness and designed a tutoring format to meet his needs specifically. My son really enjoys his sessions with Nazli as she helped him to feel more confident in his approach to assigned math tasks.

Shanta, 5 lessons with Nazli

Just what I was looking for!

After 20+ years since I was in a math class, I was intimidated at the thought of revisiting the subject. I waited until I absolutely had to take the required math class for my BS and I wasn't sure how I was going to learn enough to test into the course I needed. I looked into the tutoring route. I had no prior experience finding a tutor, so I just googled it. I came across WyzAnt, but more important I found Nazli. She is wonderful and exactly what I was looking for. She is patient, soft spoken, approachable, and friendly. She is also knowledgeable and a great teacher. I am on my way of reaching my goal.

Tanya, 5 lessons with Nazli

Great tutor

Nazli has been tutoring my son on the ACT. She has provided him with test taking strategies and help in areas where he is deficient. She has been helpful in both math and English. I appreciate that she has been flexible with scheduling. My son says that she is helpful and feels his skills are improving.

Lisa, 11 lessons with Nazli

Excellent Physics Tutor.

Our daughter was introduced to Physics by Nazli. It was such a wonderful experience to see our girl show interest in such a challenging subject. Nazli's impassioned attitude, knowledgeable background as well as her eloquent demeanor lets us have the comfort of knowing our daughter is learning from such a caring, qualified tutor.
