About Nick

Hello,

It's great to hear from you. I really enjoy tutoring and am looking forward to working with you. Whether you dislike math, have forgotten it, or simply need to brush up, I am sure I can help.

A little about me- I've taught remedial math courses for Tarrant County College but tutor almost any math course from elementary school up to upper division college, math major only classes. Also, I teach chess to elementary school children in an after-school program.

I tutored a high school student in Computer Science (a subject outside my specialty). He went from an F to an A over the course of the year. I tutored at the UTA math clinic for a year. I got my Bachelor's in Math at UTA in 2001 with a 3.5 GPA in my math classes. A few years from now, I'll probably be teaching full-time hopefully at a community college.

My available times vary. Call me for more days and times. How much material do you need to cover? My preference is to get together earlier in case something comes up, or you end up needing more tutoring. At the moment I also have Friday, Saturday & Sunday afternoon.

Also, tutoring works best if you have a list of topics you'd like to cover. I know nearly all levels of math, but need to focus on the specific topics you need. Bear in mind, this may change if we need to cover background and foundation material.

I'm looking forward to meeting you.

Happy tutoring,
Nick

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught this material with Tarrant County College.

Algebra 2

I taught Algebra II as a full-time teacher in the public school system for a semester.

ASVAB

I tutor anything and everything math. I know a little bit of the science, auto repair, electronics, English topics.

Bible Studies

I have been studying the Bible for 25 years. I have been in church my whole life, nearly 40 years. I am currently active in two church communities which are both focused on seeing people set free of issues holding them back. I considered getting a Master's in seminary, but decided living out the knowledge I currently have is much more important than obtaining more knowledge.

Calculus

I've successfully tutored calculus many times before. I'm highly effective with Engineering Calculus, Business Calculus and high School AP Calculus, etc. Calculus II & Calculus III are usually higher rates.

Chemistry

I tutor 9th & 10th grade non-AP Chemistry students.

Chess

I have been teaching chess to elementary school children in an after school program for 3 years.

Computer Programming

While earning a Math degree at the University of Texas at Arlington and Austin including 30 hours in Computer Science, I learned & applied computer programming.
I primarily tutor C and Introduction to Computer programming.
For two years, I also wrote software while developing databases.

Computer Science

I have 30 college hours in Computer Science including some Computer Science engineering. For 5 years I did highest level technical support, computer repairing & building. For the past 20 years, I have been using computers between 20 & 40 hours per week for work & home.

Differential Equations

I tutored a student through Differential Equations successfully helping him get a good grade in the class.
I worked a hundred or so Differential Equations questions simply to review the subject for future students. I also have a very strong background in Calculus I & II which serve as the basis for Differential Equations.
I am familiar with the following ODE's & topics:
Linear/Integrating Factors, Exact, Separable, Bernoulli, both types of Homogeneous, Wronskian, existence of solutions, etc.

I also took a full semester of Linear Algebra so am well prepared to tutor that aspect of the combined Linear Algebra/Diff. Eq. course most engineers take. Differential Equations will likely be higher than my usual rate.

Discrete Math

Last year, I worked a hundred or so Discrete Math questions simply to review the subject for future students. While earning my Math degree, I took a course titled Advanced Discrete Math, a course titled Logic and a Computer Science course titled Theoretical Concepts. The degree included 21 more hours of Computer Science which included applications of discrete math such as Boolean Algebra, recursion and Venn diagrams.

DOS

I have been using DOS since 1990. I have a minor in Computer Science. I still use DOS when it is more effective than other methods.

Geometry

I taught geometry in a public high school. I've been tutoring off and on for 5 to 10 years. I earned my by Bachelor's in mathematics from UTA.

GMAT

I have tutored multiple GMAT Math students in the past. I have also taught classes for GRE preparation, the more general test to get into graduate schools, for several years. I have significant expertise in math & specialize in higher level or college math.

GRE

I have taught GRE Math classes for several years. I know the GRE Math expectations inside out & upside down.

Linear Algebra

While earning my B.S. in Math at the University of Texas at Arlington, I earned an A in Matrices & Linear Algebra. I refreshed some of it in a related graduate school course. While tutoring high school & college students, I regularly use or know how to use nearly every matrix function on the TI-83/84 calculator.

Logic

I studied logic for a full semester at University of Texas at Austin. While earning a Math degree at the University of Texas at Arlington and Austin including 27 more hours in Computer Science I learned & applied logic extensively.

Microsoft Access

I have a minor in Computer Science and have been using Access since 1994. I took a college course in database design and use Access if I need to work with large datasets. My friends and family frequently ask me for computer advice.

Microsoft Outlook

I have a minor in Computer Science and have been using multiple versions of Windows since 1994. I used to administer email accounts for 140 remote computers. My friends and family frequently ask me for computer advice.

Microsoft Windows

I have a minor in Computer Science and have been using multiple versions of Windows since 1994. My friends and family frequently ask me for computer advice.

Physics

I have tutored several students in first semester physics. As of 2014, I am tutoring math students with an electrician school. My first semester physics is fine, but electricity and magnetism from second semester would be a significant stretch at this point.

Precalculus

Precalculus is one of my specialties. I excel where the material gets complex because I love pulling students up to a higher level of math understanding.

Statistics

Statistics has many levels from UT Arlington's freshman statistics course, which I know very thoroughly to graduate level statistics for social science programs. Courses on the college junior level and higher, I would function more like a study partner than a traditional tutor.

TAKS

I passed the TExES content test to teach math in 2011; this is one step to becoming a fulltime, certified teacher. I have continued to used those skills regularly. I currently tutor many core subjects at a local high school.

Trigonometry

I have tutored multiple students specifically in Trigonometry. I particularly enjoy the higher level classes like Trigonometry because the students are more mature and the material is more challenging.
