I have been blessed in my tutoring journey to form great relationships with students and families that transcend reaching the next grade level, going to a new school, or facing a personal challenge. I consider myself to be more of a "coach" than a tutor- rather than presenting new information, my role is to help students develop their God-given talents to enhance their own educational experience.

I have been blessed in my tutoring journey to form great relationships with students and families that transcend reaching the next grade level, going to a new school, or facing a personal challenge. I consider myself to be more of a "coach" than a tutor- rather than presenting new information, my role is to help students develop their God-given talents to enhance their own educational experience. Math can be a discouraging subject without understanding, but through connecting ideas and building a strong foundation of skills, one of my greatest joys in tutoring is seeing attitudes change. Every student is unique, so I develop a personalized approach to lessons for each one. I absolutely love teaching in this capacity!
My undergraduate degree is from Auburn University, where I studied business with a focus on entrepreneurship, while also earning an accounting certificate from Auburn University Montgomery. I have owned a small photography business, lead children's ministry, worked as a game/app design instructor, designed summer mathematics workshops, and helped with church database administration... but tutoring has been a common thread in my life for 17 years! I am currently homeschooling my two littles, so spots are limited!
Blast from the past:
*I was president of Mu Alpha Theta (Math) Honor Society in high school!
*1st place in Algebra/Geometry at the Florida Association of Christian Colleges & Schools competition in Jacksonville, Florida (2003)
*1st place in Advanced Math at the Dothan, Alabama Tri-State Math & Computer Science Olympiad (2004)

Not only teaches Algebra, but also how to learn and how to study!
We could not be more pleased with Nicole. From the very first email through each session Nicole has shown the utmost professionalism, knowledge, organization, passion to teach and the ability to connect with my daughter. After each session my daughter would come home excited about what she learned and how she learned it. My daughter's grades, study habits and interest in school overall have improved a lot since we started working with Nicole. I would highly recommend Nicole as a tutor. Not only is Nicole a great teacher and communicator but also a great example for my daughter to learn from.Joe, 12 lessons with Nicole
I found Nicole through Wyzant online and left her a message to contact me about tutoring my daughter. She contacted me the next morning and set up a meeting to meet me and my high school child. Nicole was very professional and organized. It was obvious she has experience. Nicole worked with my child the entire semester and was always on time with appointments, easy to reach with questions on non tutoring days, and most importantly she has great patience. My daughter never felt like Nicole got frustrated with her. I know there were times she could not understand the material the first time around but Nicole would back up and try a new approach with her. I would highly recommend Nicole due to her knowledge, patience, and trust worthiness. I also felt like she wanted my child to succeed as much as I did and for that I really appreciate her. Great tutor and outstanding person.Julie, 43 lessons with Nicole
Great tutoring experience for us!
Nicole H. has really helped my daughter this semester with Bridge math (a review of Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2). She is good at explaining and giving examples until she sees there is understanding of the problems. We are having a positive experience and it's nice to see our daughter getting more confidence with math skills. She even has a 95 average as the semester is ending. Thanks Nicole!Stephanie, 25 lessons with Nicole
My daughter worked with Nicole H. last semester for geometry. They were a perfect fit. Nicole has the perfect balance of explaining the material and then allowing her to work the problems on her own. She is forward-thinking and has great ideas to help her not only stay on track with current material, but also work on previous instruction so that she was ready for her tests. I highly recommend Nicole!Amy, 26 lessons with Nicole
We started using Nicole at the end of the school year. My daughter was very close to failing Math. Math has always been a very difficult subject for my daughter. In a matter of a few lessons with Nicole I could see a difference. My daughter went from 50's on her Homework, Quizzes, & Tests to 80's. Nicole has been so patient with my daughter, and has gone above and beyond to help her. Thanks to Nicole my daughter passed math this year and she could not have done it without her help. I would recommend her help to anyone having trouble with math. We love working with Nicole and look forward to using her this summer to prepare for the next school year.Leann, 87 lessons with Nicole
Nicole H. is a Great Math Tutor!
Greetings. We have had Nicole H. Tutor our daughter for about 10 weeks now. We can only say great things about her teaching skills. She has helped my daughter improve her math grade dramatically in 9 weeks. I would recommend her to anyone having trouble with their child's Math grade. My daughter enjoys spending time with her and she is a very pleasant lady.Sandy, 28 lessons with Nicole
Very patient and easy to work with
I recently had a need for some trigonometry help for math 1720. I contacted Nicole and she made time for me immediately. I was able to get the help I needed. and I received the study help for my test.Heather, 1 lesson with Nicole
