About Nicole


Bio

I graduated from Drury University in 2008 with a major in Mathematics. While I was attending Drury, I tutored both high school and college students in math. Since graduating college I have tutored students of all ages from 4th grade through college. I have tutored students in pre-algebra, algebra I, algebra II, college algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, statistics, geometry, and ACT Math. I am more than happy to tutor younger children too.

I graduated from Drury University in 2008 with a major in Mathematics. While I was attending Drury, I tutored both high school and college students in math. Since graduating college I have tutored students of all ages from 4th grade through college. I have tutored students in pre-algebra, algebra I, algebra II, college algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, statistics, geometry, and ACT Math. I am more than happy to tutor younger children too.

The style of tutoring that I use most frequently is to start with some basics of mathematics to make sure the student has a solid base of understanding to build on. From there I can either help the student with school assignments and making sure the student has a firm understanding of the subject matter taught at school and/or I can create lesson plans to help the student develop specific mathematical skills needed. I am very good at adjusting my tutoring style to coincide with the best learning style for the student. I try to incorporate visual, hands-on, and explanatory tutoring.

One student I tutored in college algebra came to me with a failing grade in the class at mid-terms. I met with her 4-8 hours a week for the rest of the semester and she ended up getting an A- at the end of the semester.

A student that I tutored in calculus came to me a few weeks into the semester after learning she was getting a C at that point. I met with her about 1-2 hours a week and she got an A in the class at the end of the semester.

I recently had a student that I was helping to prepare for the math section of the ACT. I created my own lesson plans and met with her two hours a week for four weeks. Her math score raised from an 18 to a 22.

I had another student that I met with just four times. She had failed a test so her Mom called me. After four sessions she was back on track and did not need me for the rest of the semester. I spoke with her Mom the following semester and she had received an A on every test she had taken since we finished tutoring.

Geometry

I have been tutoring Geometry for more than 10 years. I help student understand the basics behind proofs as well as shapes and formulas for finding area, surface area, and anything else that is covered in Geometry. I once had a student who was not doing well in Geometry and we met just a handful of times. The skills I was able to teach her not only helped her to get an A in the class, but also helped to raise other grades in subjects we did not cover.

Excellent tutor!!

Exactly what we were looking for. Nicole is great at reviewing procedures and getting our daughter to then solve algebra problems on her own.

Excellent tutor, cannot believe we are almost done with our sessions. She has been unbelievably helpful to our son and just all around a really great person to know!

Last Minute Angel

I recently needed an Algebra Tutor in a hurry. My son was flunking Algebra 1 Summer School and only had 8 days to try and get at the very least a passing grade. I submitted requests on WyzAnt Tutoring on a Thursday and heard back from every tutor within 24 hours. I was drawn to Nicole C. and my intuition was correct. She came to my home less than 48 hours of my request and spent over 5 hours with my son this past weekend. He feels much more confident and better about himself as a student. She listens, read all of his past issues and makes the student do the work to be sure they know it. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone. I consider her our Angel!!

Really Great Tutor, worth the time and money.

Nicole has helped me a great deal in my college math courses. I'm now an A student due to her working with me. Really enjoy her sessions.
