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 understand that many students struggle to make time for studying. As a result, I am very flexible with scheduling.

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 received a Bachelor's Degree of Mathematics with an Education Concentration...

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 understand that many students struggle to make time for studying. As a result, I am very flexible with scheduling.

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 received a Bachelor's Degree of Mathematics with an Education Concentration at Wright State University in 2018.

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, checking in with the student along the way to gauge their understanding of the material. In my experience, I have found that many students are visual learners, so I find this method to be very 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 welcome texting as a primary method of communication with my students, but they are also free to use other communication methods.

Subjects

Corporate Training

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 since 2013. During that time, I have developed easy ways 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 completed the Math Education Program at Wright State University. I have tutored many students in math, specializing in algebra. I like to show students why conjugates are useful, tricks to 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.
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 have tutored in a math lab where many students come 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 been tutoring SAT math since 2014. I have also proctored SAT testing and have led SAT practice sessions in the classroom.

Math

ACT Math,

ACT Math

Since 2013, I have helped many students prepare for standardized math testing. We have met in small classes, in groups, and in a one on one meeting. The type of math that shows up in the ACT is my specialty, and my students and I have worked together to ensure their success with the test.

Finite Math,

Finite Math

I've obtained 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.

Nik is an awesome tutor!

Nik was very patient with me being an older student that is out of practice. I appreciated his sense of humor during the lesson and the fact that he is very easy to understand. I learned so much and he made sure that I understood what he was teaching. I’m really looking forward to working with him in the future. He tutored me for my business calculus class.

Fantastic tutor

Nik has been a wonderful tutor for my freshman. He knows his material well and is very encouraging. He is patient and follows through. He is fun to learn from even when he is teaching difficult concepts. Highly recommend him.

Elizabeth, 7 lessons with Nik

Great experience!!!

Nik did a great job helping my son prepare for his first statistics unit test. Very patient and great communicator. We really appreciate all of his help. Thank you Nik!

Demetrius, 1 lesson with Nik

very helpful

great teacher, very patient and knowledgeable. he went out of his way to help me prepare for my pre calculus final.

Elinor, 5 lessons with Nik

Great Tutor !!

I was struggling a lot for my business calc exam and I learned more in 1 lesson with Nik than I did all semester with my professor.

Eric, 5 lessons with Nik

Great Teacher

I didn’t know anything before my tutoring session but in just 1 hour I became more comfortable than I’ve been since I started Finite Math

Aliyah , 3 lessons with Nik

Exellent tutor!

We contacted Nik in a last minute crisis (failing algebra just prior to graduation..). He understood our sense of urgency, jumped right in, and made an immediate connection with my daughter. He was extremely helpful, motivating, and built her confidence. After just a few sessions, she aced her final exam!

Rachel, 3 lessons with Nik

Easy to understand & engaging

My daughter said he made Algebra 2 clear and easy to learn. He was funny and engaging. Nik also has good communication skills and is flexible to work around your schedule.

Jenny, 1 lesson with Nik

Best!!

Great sense of humor, patient, and explained things really well! Honestly just amazing! I feel way better about my midterm after only one session. He really seems to love teaching, would totally recommend. :)
