About Nik


Bio

I love to learn, and I love to teach even more. I became a tutor at a community college in 2012. Working at a community college, I realize and understand that most students struggle to make time for studying. As a result, I am very flexible.

I graduated from Sinclair College with an Associate's Degree of Liberal Arts and Sciences in 2013 and I have also received an Associate's Degree of Mathematics in 2015. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree of Math Education at Wright State...

I love to learn, and I love to teach even more. I became a tutor at a community college in 2012. Working at a community college, I realize and understand that most students struggle to make time for studying. As a result, I am very flexible.

I graduated from Sinclair College with an Associate's Degree of Liberal Arts and Sciences in 2013 and I have also received an Associate's Degree of Mathematics in 2015. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree of Math Education at Wright State University.

My methods of tutoring range based on the needs of the student. My preferred method is to give "mini-lectures" using a whiteboard to illustrate examples. In my history of tutoring, I have found that the majority of students are visual learners, so I find this method to be most beneficial. I also like to watch my students work out problems so that I may learn where their weaknesses lie, then work to improve them.

I am a very practical and modern tutor, and welcome texting as a primary method of communication with my students.

Proofreading,

Proofreading

I wrote many papers as a college student, and I had one professor go so far as to say that I should take up a profession that involves writing. I have helped many students proofread, and have many tips that can help students get the best grade possible.
Statistics

Statistics

The math involved in statistics is mostly beginning and intermediate algebra, but the concepts themselves can be difficult to grasp. One of the most important ideas to understand in a statistics problem is that the numerical "answer" is only half of the solution. The interpretation of that result is just as important. I have tutored students taking various statistics courses for two years. During that time, I have developed easy way to learn the empirical formula, confidence interval estimates, and other common topics found in a statistics class.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

This is my favorite subject to tutor. I have helped many students to understand how to define a function. I have also helped students learn how to simplify rational expressions with exponents of different signs. I can also help students solve inequalities as well as absolute functions.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I am currently in the Math Education Program at Wright State University. I have tutored many students in math; algebra being my specialty. Specifically, I like to show students why conjugates are useful, tricks to quickly factor polynomials, and how to demystify algebraic word problems.
Calculus,

Calculus

I am constantly challenged with tough calculus questions, so the material is fresh in my mind. I also help students with their calculus homework, so I am always active with integration, arc length, etc. I am especially helpful in partial fraction decomposition, integration by parts, and optimizing area/volume functions. I am also familiar with business calculus.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I love math, but Environmental Engineering was my first major in college. I excelled in both general chemistry courses and have been tutoring chemistry ever since. In my experience,I have found that some of the hardest topics for students to learn is electron configuration, intermolecular forces, and acid-base reactions. I have developed methods that make it much easier to learn these topics.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have been successful in helping students understand the various theorems of triangle congruence, such as Side-Angle-Side and Hypotenuse-Leg theorems. I especially enjoy teaching ways to prove congruence in general, such as line segments, angles, and triangles. I can also make it easy to understand how to bisect angles and line segments, as well as demonstrating tessellations.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Pre algebra coursework prepares you to face problems with variables and helped you to understand why solving for x is useful. I have helped many students with the order of operations and how to remember them. I can also help identify what is useful in a word problem and how to use the information to isolate a variable.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I tutor in a math lab in a community college. Many students come into the lab with precalculus questions, such as determining shifts of a graph, finding zeros of polynomials, and applications of trigonometric functions. I have been able to help these students by providing simple answers to difficult questions that are easy to both understand and apply.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I am familiar with all math at the high school level and have bee tutoring SAT math for four years. I have also proctored SAT testing and have led SAT practice sessions in the classroom.

Finite Math,

Finite Math

I recently obtained an Associate's Degree of Mathematics in 2015. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree of Math Education. Finite math covers a wide variety of mathematical concepts including, but not limited to, algebra, business, and other real-world applications. I can explain how do reduce matrices to upper echelon form as well as develop and solve systems of equations for a real world application. In addition, I can also help you understand business functions involving compound interest and continuous interest.

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra focuses on solving multi-variable problems using matrices. I have tutored several subjects that involve using linear algebra, including finite math, engineering calculus, and elementary linear algebra. As a student, I have taken linear algebra as well as two abstract algebra classes.
Logic,

Logic

As a math education, I have taken many proof-based math classes. These include abstract algebra, hyperbolic geometry, real variables, and proofs itself. I have helped students with True/False tables, logic statements and strings, and Boolean algebra. I can also help students learn how to efficiently use existential and universal quantifiers.

Knowledgeable and patient

Nik was very knowledgeable with probability and breaking down intersections and unions down. He wrote down all the information on paper and allowed me to keep them for my notes which I was able to study for my test with.
