Nicole…has a casual, friendly, encouraging attitude that students are likely to enjoy. She includes her own techniques for remembering concepts—mnemonics, tricks, silly songs. She makes the lessons lively!

Cathy Duffy, Cathy Duffy Reviews

I listened to my husband talk through simple probability with my daughter. As the frustration built, I gained access to the portal of glorious videos on Nicole the Math Lady.  In the span of five minutes, we went from utter confusion to content understanding. It was wonderful to have a third party tutor step in and diffuse the moment of stress between teacher and student.

Betsy Strauss, Family Style Schooling

Nicole’s videos are awesome. She doesn’t make corny jokes or overly try to be funny.  She just seems to have a naturally engaging personality that comes through in her videos. While she’s upbeat and engaging, she’s also quick and to the point. Another huge plus!

School is done, for now, but I want to thank you for your help in eighth grade math this year with Lydia. My child does not like math, but after we subscribed to your service, she looked forward to hearing from you every day. Her daily work was on and off, and I thought we’d need to start ninth grade with more pre-algebra. But, out of curiosity, I tried the placement test, and she knew how to do almost every problem through Algebra readiness. Today I got her Hewitt standardized test back, and she placed very high–in fact, she hit the 99th national percentile! When I look back over her elementary scores, that is a dramatic increase! Saxon, and you, made all the difference.

I want to thank you.  I want to let you know how grateful I am to have found your video series for Algebra 1. My daughter has transitioned to a private high school and is no longer homeschooling, and on her placement test she did indeed move up to an integrated geometry/Algebra 2 class as a freshman! So your program is effective! It was so helpful to have each lesson to lay it out for her by an actual math teacher instead of her just doing it from the book.  One of the reasons I think your videos are successful, aside from being truly helpful instruction, it that you are not boring!!! You have a way about you that is interesting, engaging and even funny – but in a genuine way, not a ‘trying to be funny’ kind of way.  And that works well with the tween and teen set!  I have suggested your site to anyone I know doing Saxon Math and will continue to do so.

You are an asset to the homeschooling community and I wish you tremendous success.  Thank you again.

Math videos from Nicole the Math Lady will help you balance work and homeschool by giving you another tool to foster independence and give them the tools to succeed in math!

Amy Lanham, Life as Lanhams

She has tips and tricks and mnemonic devices that make understanding complex math concepts a little easier. These NICOLEisms take her math instruction to a level I can’t provide. And, they make the lessons engaging for kids who don’t want to have to ask mom for help.

If you’ve been homeschooling for a while, you’ve probably gotten the question, What’s one thing you wish you would have known when you started homeschooling?  Well, here’s mine:  Nicole the Math Lady.
