Hello math students and future educators,

With my BS in Mathematics, BA in Education, and almost 20 years of tutoring experience, I am able to help you pass the Praxis, improve your SAT/ACT score, or help you through that difficult math class. I have been licensed to teach in New Jersey, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania; College Board certified to teach AP Statistics; and current in all 5 PA required clearances with copies available upon request.

Hello math students and future educators,

With my BS in Mathematics, BA in Education, and almost 20 years of tutoring experience, I am able to help you pass the Praxis, improve your SAT/ACT score, or help you through that difficult math class. I have been licensed to teach in New Jersey, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania; College Board certified to teach AP Statistics; and current in all 5 PA required clearances with copies available upon request. I taught public school for many years and switched solely to tutoring while raising my children. On the side, I am currently pursuing my MSEd in Instructional Technology with hopes to return to the classroom in about 5 years.

My local students often come from Mt. Lebanon and Upper St. Claire. However, half of my students do not live by me. Thanks to Wyzant’s best online interface, I have helped students from San Francisco, CA; New York, NY; parts of Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey; and more.

The high school subjects I most often cover are Precalculus, Calculus, Statistics, Algebra 2, and blended courses that include Trigonometry. For students looking to pass the Praxis Core 5732- in some states this is 5733 (which is the mathematics section of the 5751), Middle School Mathematics 5158, Elementary Mathematics 7813, or the Praxis II Subject Test: Mathematics 5161, I will help you reach your state/territory/agency’s required test score. Most commonly, this is a score of 150.

I look forward to helping you achieve your goal, online or here in the suburbs of The Burgh at the Mt. Lebanon Public Library.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or set up a session,
Nichelle P.

To succeed in statistics the student must have strong math skills and strong critical reading skills. I am able to teach both. I have professionally taught this subject for three years and tutored it for over 10. My students were high school, college, and graduate level. I am CollegeBoard certified to teach AP Statistics and I worked for Kaplan Inc. as their AP Stat exam guru. I can help demystify this subject for you.

AP Stats

Nichelle is patient with her students and explains the concepts in a way that is easy to understand.

Sandi, 4 lessons with Nichelle

Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic tutor

Nichelle was able to teach my daughter several pre-algebra concepts to help her with her math class at school. Nichelle reviewed the concepts quickly and with the whiteboard walked my daughter through a problem and then had my daughter do several problems along with her. Very good tutor, we will book another session with her next week!!

Robert, 2 lessons with Nichelle

Knowledgable and great at explaining

Nichelle did an outstanding job tutoring my high school daughter in Pre-Calculus this year! She explained really well about not only how to get the correct answer but to understand why. She was very patient with my daughter and adjusted the lessons to fit her pace. She was also flexible with scheduling when needed. There is no way my daughter would have received a great grade in her Pre-Calculus class without Nichelle's tutoring. Nichelle is exceptionally fantastic!

Rebecca, 60 lessons with Nichelle

Patient and Thorough

She was able to help my son prepare for finals, literally from 68% avg test grade to 90% on final. Taking the time to review and correct bad habits or shortcuts is making a difference.

Chris, 20 lessons with Nichelle

Patient and Thorough Tutor

My daughter had midterms in Algebra II Honors and she described the session with Nichelle as very helpful. She went over everything very thoroughly and patiently and my daughter reports "getting it."

Holiday, 19 lessons with Nichelle

Build knowledge and confidence in the subject

Nichelle taught my daughter about AP Statistics and is helping her catch up in class. She is a confidence-builder as well as being knowledgeable on the subject matter. We look forward to our next lesson and continue progression for our child.

Erica, 10 lessons with Nichelle

Wonderful Tutor - Highly Recommend!!!

Nichelle is an excellent tutor!! She has taught me so many unique, easy, and fun ways to solve math problems! Nichelle also did an amazing job at explaining and breaking down math problems that were challenging for me. I definitely have a lot more confidence for solving math problems after working with Nichelle. She has helped me achieve a passing score on my Praxis Core: Math and I couldn't thank her enough!!

Stefanie, 4 lessons with Nichelle

Provides New Insight

Nichelle has provided me with new insight to what I previously would have viewed as too challenging for me to attempt. She has helped me a lot in the math section of the SAT and has also helped my writing, she really knows what she is talking about and I am happy I picked her to tutor me because now I feel that my SAT score will be so much better thanks to her help!

Kim, 14 lessons with Nichelle

Fantastic tutor!

Nichelle has a way of explaining difficult material, and breaking it down so that it is easier to understand. I learned a lot during our tutoring session!
