Southern Illinios University Carbondale, IL (IndustrialTechnology)
I am currently transitioning to Substitute Teaching & Tutoring full-time. I am offering my services to home school parents and college students in the area. Subjects include: English, Math, and Science. I will use the materials of your choice (Home School Parents) but will supplement when necessary so that students will achieve a full understanding of the concept.
Also coming this summer, I will be offering an Enrichment class for 8th grade students going to 9th grade, if there is enough interest. Email me to express interest. Algebra I and Geometry topics will be covered to assist students that will be taking either Algebra I or Geometry as a freshman. Topics include: Algebraic Expressions, Linear Equations, Polynomials, Polygons, Circles, Angle Relationships, etc.
I have a B.S. in Industrial Technology with an emphasis in Lean Manufacturing from SIU-Carbondale. I formerly attended University of Missouri-Rolla (Missouri University of Science & Technology) and majored in Chemical Engineering. My favorite subjects are math (especially Algebra), English, and science(s). I love tutoring math. I've tutored others, seems like, my whole life. I want everyone to understand. I love when the light bulb of understanding shows on a persons face! My math background includes Calculus and Analytical Geometry I, II, III, Differential Equations, Calculus for Business, Engineering Physics I, College Physics II, Statics of Mechanics, additionally Chemistry I, II, III (this was an additional lab) in college. In high school I took Algebra I and II, Trigonometry, Geometry, Physics, and Pre-Calculus. I have tutored elementary children, junior high (middle), high school, college students, and adults that have returned to college. I really care about the struggle some students have in understanding math. I know and understand that some instructors leave out key steps that make the difference in understanding how to solve math problems. I will go to great lengths to relate to and reach the student for their understanding. I have an 11 year old son who is basically a straight A student in math because I (we) work very diligently with him to understand the concept or process. I have a very soft spot for people who think they absolutely hate or think they just do not understand math. I am currently transitioning to Substitute Teaching & Tutoring full-time.

Nicole has been absolutely fantastic. Our college age daughter is getting great grades on her homework and a better understanding of the Algebra process. Not only are her grades going up, her self confidence in that she can do the work has improved 100%. Nicole is patient, kind, meticulous, understanding, and knows her business when it comes to Algebra. Great tutor that I would highly recommend.
The tutor we selected was really good. Based on the short turn around she covered as much as possible. Hopefully this will improve her test scores and we plan on working with her again in April.
We recently hired Nicole to tutor my son in Geometry. We have just started the sessions but Nicole is such a pleasant tutor to work with. She explains everything and answers all your questions. She also cares about her students and their success. She will find the connection that will match the student with the class so it will make it easier on them. I'm really looking forward to having Nicole help my son understand and succeed in Geometry. I know she is someone that can definitely do it.
Before Nicole, my daughter was unmotivated and not passing tests in Geometry. Since Nicole has been working with my daughter, her motivation is better and she is passing her tests. I cannot fully express how thankful I am that we met Nicole. Nicole is more than willing to work with my daughter on other subjects, to help her achieve despite my daughter’s attitude at times, which can be challenging. Not that my daughter is difficult, but she is strong willed and hard to motivate if she does not want to do something. Nicole has developed a rapport with my daughter that takes a certain set of skills in addition to Nicole’s abilities in math and her own love for learning and teaching. Even the Vice Principal at my daughter’s school has noticed a difference. She has talked to my daughter at school and then conveyed to me personally that she could tell Nicole was held in high regard by us. My child, and I, can only sing Nicole’s praise.
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 I is foundational for all future math and sciences. It provides the theorems, definitions, thought processes, and equations/formulas to define and solve for unknowns, utilizing and understanding what is known. Algebra I includes but not limited to: real and complex numbers, linear equations, linear inequalities, absolute values, quadratic equations, linear functions, slope, composite functions, inverse functions, circles, polynomials, graphs of functions...
