Hi! My name is Nicole and I'm a 2013 graduate of Harvard University with a Bachelor's degree in English. I'm currently an MBA student at Syracuse University majoring in marketing. My tutoring expertise lies in English (reading skills and comprehension, spelling, grammar, etc.), elementary school math skills, and (P)SAT reading and verbal prep. I'm also a singer and a recreational writer. I have experience in editing and copywriting, so I can also help edit and refine course and college application essays!

I have been working with children for 10 years and pride myself on being able to connect to elementary-aged children in an effective way. When I tutor and help children with their homework, I break apart the question (whether it is a word they are struggling to read or a math problem they must solve) into small, manageable pieces and gradually ask the child to combine these manageable pieces into the correct answer. I do not give the child the answer; I work with them and guide them to find it themselves. I firmly believe that, if I merely provide the child with the answer and explain it rather than helping them to find it themselves, the child will not learn or be able to eventually do it themselves. My younger brother is autistic, so I have experience working with autistic children and helping them to verbalize their wants, needs, and difficulties. I hope to be able to help with whatever you need!

Fantastic Tutor, Bright, Insightful and Patient — Nicole M. has been a great tutor for my 17 year old son. She is extremely bright, patient and insightful. After meeting with him for only one session she was already able to see areas where he needed help. She has been very supportive in helping my son prepare for the SATs and deal with some of the anxiety that comes with a testing situation. My wife and I feel extremely fortunate to have found ...
