I have always truly loved learning. Teaching and sharing this passion has just come as second nature.
I have a PhD in Aquatic Animal health/Aquaculture/Conservation/Fisheries from the University of Tasmania, a Master of Science in Marine Biology from the University of Maine and a B.S. in Marine Science and Biology with minors in Environmental Science and Chemistry, from University of Miami. I have also won several awards for science communication, both at the national and international level.
I have 9 years of teaching experience, including 6 years at the University level and 3 years teaching children and young teens. I enjoy the challenge of connecting my students to their subject, and motivating them to want to learn more. Science and Maths are my specialty, in particular biology and statistics. I have also published several peer-reviewed publications and can assist with scientific methods, scientific writing and several computer programs such as statistical packages (SPSS & R), Microsoft Office products (Excel, Word, PowerPoint).
I endeavor to tailor my classes, tutoring sessions and/or learning experiences to each students' own learning style and interests. I also welcome any and all feedback, from both parent and student, to enhance my teaching ability. Tutoring sessions can either take place in a private room at a local library (FAU honors and PBSC are both open until late) or at a location which is most convenient for the student and parent.
Looking forward to hearning from you! I have always truly loved learning. Teaching and sharing this passion has just come as second nature.

Nicole has been just wonderful tutoring my two teens on pre-calc. Very reliable, on time, and great communicator. Definitely recommend!
My son just took his ACT test and felt he did much better on the science portion which is mainly what Nicole has been helping him with. Nicole has been very accommodating and I would highly recommend her.
Nicole is the only reason I am able to accomplish what I am. She explains SPSS statistics in a clear and understandable way. I look forward to each unit now. I hope she can help me with other subjects. She is fantastic.
Good news. I just found out Nicole is also an expert in my next statistics course. I can breathe easily now. I'm so lucky to have Nicole as a resource.
Originally I contacted Nicole to help my son with statistics which she did very effectively. Later I asked her to include some algebra review and some introductory pre calculus which my son has found to be very useful. Nicole is not only an excellent tutor, but also very obliging and responsive to changing needs. I highly recommend her.
Nicole is a strong instructor who is very clear. She immediately "diagnosed" my sons algebra 1 weaknesses and has been working to strengthen ever since. She has remedied misconceptions and given tips for moving through multiple step problems faster. She is a delight.
After just the first meeting, my daughter's confidence and optimism has soared. My daughter's immediate response when I asked her how it went was "I absolutely love her." She is really looking forward to working with Nicole to tackle the difficult subject of genetics. Thanks Nicole!
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.
Algebra 1 is one of the most important stepping stones into complex mathematics. It is also difficult for many, with the introduction of several new concepts. I have been a University lecturer and tutor in maths for many years. I have developed techniques to not only teach the concepts of Algebra 1, but to also inspire students to want to continue into complex mathematics.
I completely understand how math can be challenging. I have 8 years of teaching experience, 5 at the University level. From teaching hundreds of students, I have learned several techniques to help inspire students understanding and learning.
I have taught university level data handling and presentation as well as quantitative methods to biological scientists. Both at the undergraduate and graduate level, 5 years of experience. I also have several peer-reviewed statistical publications and commercial statistical consultancy experience.
I enjoy teaching statistics and helping solve research questions, and believe statistics can and should be taught using real world situations and everyday language.
As a University lecturer in marine biology, botany was an important part of the general biology unit I instructed. Classes I have instructed include plant reproduciton (including contrasting the three different pollination strategies- water, wind, and animal-mediated), taxonomy, evolution, natural selection, and energy and nutrient webs among others. From Mendel's experiements to GMO's, botany continues to be an important part of modern science education.
Finite math is a catch all term used to describe many mathematics fields outside of calculus. It is usually required for business type majors. I have not only been granted a minor in mathematics, I have also taught mathematics at the University level. Recently I have also taken math for MBA's, i.e. finance, accounting, and operations management statistics. Tutoring in maths and sciences is my specialty. And I have several years tutoring experience with finite math specifically.
I have taken both an undergraduate and a graduate level course in genetics. Genetics has also become a part of my teaching, within general biology and statistics at the Undergraduate level. As well as a small component of my research.
To me, teaching genetics has two components (1) relating genetics to the students using specific examples and (2) some of memorization is required. Genetics is difficult, but understanding the basics will allow most students to reason out problems.
I have learned tremendously from the hundreds of students I have taught math, and completely understand how it can be challenging for some students. Understanding not every person learns in the same way, I have come up with some tricks to help inspire even the most struggling students.
I am an international award winning science communicator, winning the Fresh Science 2013 science communication competition for all of Australia as well as the Australian Society of Parasitology best oral presentation award in 2012. Along with my Fresh Science award, I received over a week of intensive media training with several international media and business outlets including the ABC, Associated Press, the Science minister, a large hedge fund investor group, and numerous educational outlets (i.e. TV, radio, print, in person presentations, and business meetings). As a result of my skills and training, I have presented to tens of thousands of people, and been featured in hundreds of international press pieces all around the world.
I enjoy teaching statistics and helping solve research questions. I believe statistics can and should be taught using real world situations and everyday language. I have taught University level data handling and presentation as well as quantitative methods to biological scientists. Both at the Undergraduate and Graduate level, 5 years experience. I also have several peer-reviewed statistical publications and commercial statistical consultancy experience. I find when students begin to understand why we need to do statistics, they see it can be our friend rather than our foe.
