I am a patient person who is very passionate about learning. I just recently graduated from St. Norbert College with a bachelor's in Science with a biomedical concentration and a minor in Psychology; I received Cum Laude honors while finishing my degree in three and a half years. I have previous experience tutoring at St. Norbert College, and I have extensive experience in the sciences. While tutoring biology, chemistry, psychology, and other courses, I had the exceptional opportunity to do cancer research and present at the AACR conference. I was able to convey my research findings with other science-minded people and learned a great deal about how to best share my learning experiences and results. I truly enjoy working with people and feel as though I could offer a lot to students that were struggling or wanted a firmer grasp on specific concepts in academia.
I like to take a direct approach while tutoring students. What this means is that I like to present the material in a manageable way and bridge the gap between new material and previously learned material; I have found that this makes the learning process a lot more concise and conducive and there is an overall higher level of learning that occurs. Creating real life examples utilizing the concepts taught in classes also gives each lesson a more concrete feel. I would love the opportunity to share my knowledge and skills with anyone that could benefit, and being an easy person to get along with, I think it would be easy to build strong tutor/student relationships that could only result in a stronger learning environment.

Patient tutor for struggling student
Niki covered atomic structure and some of the basic math for chemical combinations. We are trying to work out a regular weekly schedule.Elyse, 1 lesson with Nicole
Great organic chemistry tutor
Niki was great! She knew her stuff! I highly recommend her. She is very nice and sincere. She was well-prepared and easy to talk to and get along with.Kay, 2 lessons with Nicole
Niki was a great fit for my son. He was lost in Geometry. We decided to get him a tutor and after reading reviews, we decided to give Niki a try. I am soooo glad we did. She was thoroughly prepared and quickly understood why he was confused and how to help him. I wish we could hire Niki for his teacher! Niki is a great tutor and we will continue to work with her in his future math and science classes.Tonya, 4 lessons with Nicole
I cannot even describe what an amazing experience it has been to work with Nicole. I have heard so many horror stories about biochemistry and how people rarely pass the class, so I knew I needed to reach out for help. Of course, she was excited and ambitious to help. I told Nicole I needed a B in the class to get accepted to my program of choice and she told me I would earn an A. That is exactly what I did. Every session with Nicole I learned a great amount of information, new study habits, and even had fun doing it. Her free spirit and energy made it easier and more comfortable to learn and I am so lucky to have found her. I look forward to working with her for some of my other science courses down the road.Jessica, 7 lessons with Nicole
I needed help with an Intro to Biology course and have only met with Niki twice. But each time I walked away knowing a great deal more than when I walked in. She is very patient and has a great attitude. I connected well with her methods of teaching (real world applications, diagrams, and over all explanations). I provided her with the material and questions I had and she was able to help answer all of them. If you are worried about the price you should take this into consideration, I have met with three other less expensive tutors (again I provided them with the material and my questions) and each time they were less prepared and less effective as Niki was. If you're still on the fence just give her one chance, you will not regret it. I have a test in a few days and I feel twice as confident this time. All thanks to Niki.Hollis, 4 lessons with Nicole
Down to earth
Incredibly patient and great to work with. Is willing to work with any teaching style that best fits you. Very caring and helpful. Definitely recommend her to anyone in need of some help!Kali, 2 lessons with Nicole
Personable and engaging
Our 16-year-old son had his first lesson with "Niki" and enjoyed her relaxed and communicative style of tutoring. It made him feel especially at ease. My first impression of her was that she was very warm, confident and engaging. Together with her solid knowledge base, it was the best of both worlds and I knew she was a good fit for us, on every level.Cindy, 7 lessons with Nicole
