About Nicole

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.

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.


Genetics was one of my passions while in college. I truly enjoyed the subject matter and hold a very tight understanding of the intricate details of this class. I helped explain key concepts to students struggling and was able to further apply my understanding of genetics while taking cancer courses at SNC.

Organic Chemistry

I took a full year of organic chemistry as a part of my biology degree from St. Norbert College. I excelled at the subject matter and found that I really enjoyed learning about the mechanisms of organic chemistry. I feel confident that I would be able to share my joy of this subject with others and would tutor using models and diagrams like I was taught at SNC.


I have attended Bellin College as a part of their accelerated 15 months program. This meant that I was a part of their very vigorous pharmacology curriculum, and I excelled, scoring high on all exams and assessments. I also have a very long history in pharmaceuticals as I was a pharmaceutical rep. I enjoy this subject matter and have served as a resource for my peers.

Study Skills

Study skills are important to excel in school, especially college, so I think my completion of my 4 year degree in 3.5 years points toward my ability to study effectively to succeed in the classes I took. I made study guides to study off of while in school and organized my notes to be most beneficial to me as I studied continuously for my exams. Study skills differ from subject to subject, but there are underlying themes that can be learned to set students up for success, and I would enjoy to share my tips to students as they learn and study.


I was on the varsity tennis squad in high school and have since stayed active by playing in college and with friends. This is a fun way to stay active and I have been complimented for having a wicked serve. I would love to help others culture a love for the sport.
