About Nicole

Aloha,

My name is Nicole T. and I am a current undergraduate student at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, on schedule to graduate Spring of 2017 with a major in Marine Biology and a minor in Mathematics. My passion is invertebrate biology, and my goal is to work with Coral Reef conservation efforts. I have two official years of experience tutoring, but a lifetime of experience helping others to learn mathematics. I have two younger sisters- the youngest of whom has severe dyscalculia. She is 8 years younger than I am, so by the time she started learning math I was old enough to be the one helping her with all of her homework. Because of this I have experience helping people to understand the complex concepts that are present in the math world. I also have experience working with kids who have learning disabilities like dyscalculia, and understand how frustrating it can be to try to make sense of numbers that won't stay still. It takes a greater level of patience, but anyone can excel at math.

I am comfortable tutoring others in a large variety of subjects such as algebra, geometry and elementary math. I also preformed very well on my SATs, receiving a score of 2000 overall, and a perfect on the mathematics section of the test. I honestly love math, and really enjoy tutoring kids of all ages to help them understand how great math can be! I find that more often than not, people struggling with math need to be reassured that it is okay. One of the great things about mathematics is that there is more than one way to come to every answer. It's just a question of finding the method that works best for the individual.

Although I have the most experience helping people with math, I am also comfortable with many other subjects. As a biology major, I have taken classes in all range of science- from geology to chemistry to ecology and more- I love science and everything related to it, and I love spreading my knowledge to the next generation.

In general, I have a well rounded education. I went to high school in Maryland, graduating in the top 10% of my class, and started at a liberal arts college working towards a biology degree. While at this school I dabbled in English and Literature. After a year and a half I became homesick for Hawaii, and so I moved back to be closer to my family and home. I transferred to UH Manoa to continue my education, and I started tutoring other college students.

I legitimately enjoy learning- in all fields- and I love being in school. I look forward to working with others to help them further their education and perhaps even build a relationship with education.

Cheers, and hoping to work with you soon.

Nicole

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Ballet

I was a competitive gymnast with required cross-training in ballet for 8 years. I then quit gymnastics and moved to ballet full time. I attended an arts Highschool in Silver Spring Maryland to focus on ballet and piano. Although I was forced to quit dancing at 16 due to a severe knee injury, it is still a passion of mine and I have 15 years of experience dancing.

English

I am a college level English tutor and a published writer!
