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 2

I have taught high school math since 1989, including Algebra 2. I am a retired Texas certified high school math teacher.

Calculus

I have now taught calculus since 1989. I am a retired Texas certified teacher.

Differential Equations

I have taken differential equations (DIFFEQ) courses--both ordinary and partial--in undergraduate school. Furthermore, I had to apply these in my major courses in both undergraduate and graduate school courses. The most important prerequisite knowledge for DIFFEQ is integrals and techniques for evaluating them, and I have taught BOTH integral calculus and tutored DIFFEQ since 1989.

Flute

I have taught flute and clarinet lessons since the mid-'80s with many students placing very high in local and state competitions. I am also very experienced as an orchestral soloist. I use proven lesson studies to help students improve musicianship step-by-step including Pares Scales, Rubank Studies/Duets, and various Etude study books.

Physics

I Emphasize CONCEPTS so you know why the equations are set up the way they are. I do demos in your home as well. I can teach you physics with or without calculus.

Awesome Tutor! — Mr. Nichols was an amazing tutor! He really helped me understand Physics 2 by going over concepts and real world examples. He was also extremely easy to get ahold of when I had questions and had a very flexible schedule. I highly recommend him for anyone having trouble with physics! ...
