My name is Nicole and teaching is my passion!
I have been a career educator since 2001 and have taught middle school through college. I hold a Colorado teaching license with a dual endorsement in secondary math and general science and currently teach 7th and 8th grade math and science at a middle school in Golden. Although I teach both math and science, math is my true passion; I can't imagine life without solving really cool equations with my students and challenging those students to develop a confident, enlightening understanding of the problems they solve.
When I taught college prep math to military veterans at Metropolitan State University of Denver, I taught algebra and geometry using real-life scenarios so the students could understand some direct applications of math. When I taught English Composition at Metro, I would ask my students to use their personal experiences to draw parallels to characters in novels and create expressive, thoughtful essays detailing their responses to the novels we read in class. I believe if students can understand academic content on a practical and personal level, then they can develop the confidence in themselves to tackle whatever content they choose.
Obviously, every student learns and comprehends at his or her own pace, and I have developed a persistent patience with my students in order to help them avoid giving up on challenging material. Learning takes time, patience, and practice.
My specialties are tutoring math, ACT and SAT prep, and English; however, I tutor many other subjects. Please feel free to email me with any questions and thank you for considering me as your family's personal tutor.
I am currently accepting new students, so please contact me anytime. I tutor students every day except Saturday. Thank you!
