NAME: Dr. Nick Curiel
Quantitative Statistics Tutoring
About the Tutor:
After many years of working in a rewarding career in the business community, one of my goals is to work in the field of education. Having recently graduated with a Doctor of Education Degree, I am now ready to begin my second career.
My educational philosophy is based on a set of fundamental concepts about teaching and learning. I believe all students can learn when given the proper assistance. A few students do not require any supplemental instruction, but most do. Learning is a personal matter that depends on students’ assumption of responsibility and engagement. My approach is to reinforce the professor’s teaching points, by reviewing assignments and answering student questions.
During my recent studies, I offered academic tutoring to my peers. All students who accepted my assistance were able to successfully complete all course requirements. The key to our success was an academic setting that encouraged and strengthened student learning experience allowing them to avoid falling behind. I bring a depth of experience, wisdom, personal vision, and energy to any endeavor I undertake. I stay current in the field, for which I accept an assignment in.
Prior to earning my doctorate, I earned the following degrees: BS in Mathematics, MBA in Business Administration, MS in Computer Science.
