About Nicole

I am currently finishing up my Bachelor's degree in physics at WPI. I have been a lab instructor and grader, and grader and tutor for college freshman and sophomore level physics courses (I explain this in more detail below). Through that, I have needed to assist with math concepts as well.

Teaching lab and holding help sessions for students were some of my favorite experiences in college. Once I finish my degree, I intend to take the MTEL exam and get my Prelimary Teaching License. I plan on getting a Masters degree in Physics Education.

During the course of my physics education, I have taken a significant number of math courses, including calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations. My time as a physics TA has occasionally led to students asking for math related help to complete their physics work. These topics have included calculus, differential equations, and algebra.

To complete my degree, I have taken a lot of physics courses, including mechanics, electricity and magnetism, oscillations and waves, and modern physics. As stated above, I was a lab instructor and grader for freshman physics labs. This involved explaining the lab assignment to students and assisting when they had questions. I also helped with homework assignments, upon the students' requests. I have also been a grader for sophomore level mechanics, and held scheduled help sessions to which the students could go at their leisure. In those help sessions, I did anything from homework help to test review, including simply going over material to reinforce the professor's lectures.

I very much enjoy teaching. Helping a student understand concepts, and reinforcing their confidence in their own intelligence, is a truly rewarding experience for me. I encourage prospective students to contact me to learn more. I look forward to working with you.

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.
