About Nicole

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.

Absolutely awesome!! — Nicole has been absolutely fantastic. Our college age daughter is getting great grades on her homework and a better understanding of the Algebra process.
