Bio

Hi, my name is Nicole and I am a current graduate student in Special Education with a Bachelor’s Degree in Humanities. I am a tutor with 15+ years of experience working with students at all levels of the spectrum.

Hi, my name is Nicole and I am a current graduate student in Special Education with a Bachelor’s Degree in Humanities. I am a tutor with 15+ years of experience working with students at all levels of the spectrum. As a tutor, I have worked for two different professional tutoring agencies, one specializing in SAT and ACT tutoring, and another specializing in K-12 subject tutoring. I have also worked with a county-based literacy council, working with both adult literacy learners and elementary students struggling to learn to read.

My tutoring style has been described as engaging, encouraging, and adaptive. I received a 2300/2400 on the SAT, and full scholarship opportunities to Yale and Wellesley. I am a flexible and adaptive tutor, whether my students are applying to college, studying for the SAT/ACT exams, or require specialized tutoring support in a specific school subject.

I am committed to helping the intimidated student become the confident student. I am particularly adept at helping students build strategies for successful test-taking, as well as understanding the material necessary to correctly answer the questions. It is important to remember that standardized tests follow a set pattern and employ the same strategies throughout; understanding how to navigate that pattern is key to a good score.

The skills and techniques I teach have a far-reaching and long-lasting impact on a student’s general knowledge and confidence. Incorporated into my lessons are reading, writing, and math fundamentals that provide review and enrichment. I work with each student to create an individualized plan of study, taking into account each student’s unique strengths and abilities. It is my goal to create a fun and dynamic learning experience that can motivate any student and enhance their love of learning. I believe that through positive thinking and consistent practice, a student can achieve their goals.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I am a current graduate student in Special Education with a Bachelor’s Degree in Humanities. I spent a year when I was in high school working with a 7-year-old girl diagnosed with ASD. She struggled with reading and explaining what she had read to another person. She was capable of comprehending, just not particularly skilled in communicating her own understanding. I also spent a year working with an 11th-grade boy with ASD in reading and math. He struggled with time-management, and also putting his thoughts down on paper. I talked through his answers and ideas and quizzed him on vocabulary. We met twice a week.

Knowledgeable, fun and patient tutor.

My nine year old daughter struggled with reading and she was hesitant to read on her own. Now, she looks forward to every class and over the last weeks she definitely improved her reading skills. Nicole is a very fun tutor and they both seem to have fun during their sessions. I hear them laugh a lot during the class. I would highly recommended Nicole as a tutor!

Patient, organized and helpful!

Nicole has been tutoring my high school aged daughter daily for a few weeks and helping her get on top of her homework load. She is a consistent and calm presence, and a great counterbalance to my ADHD daughter, who is academically capable but needs a lot of hand holding through the executive functioning aspects of juggling all of her high school workload. I highly recommend Nicole!

Amazing SAT Tutor!!!

Nicole is tutoring both of my sons to prepare for their upcoming exam. Nicole has been extremely helpful and talented at guiding them through problems that may at first seem complicated. It’s incredibly clear how much my sons have improved with her practice problems after only a few weeks.

Knowledgeable, Patient and Works great with children on the spectrum.

Nicole has been working with my daughter for several weeks to improve her reading. My daughter is 12 and has Autism. Nicole has helped to build her confidence and prompts her periodically to ask her questions about the story. My daughter has improved so much and enjoys working with her. I strongly recommend Nicole.

Great tutor!

Nicole is helping my daughter with her HSPT exam and she has been great. Very patient, always on time and allows my daughter to feel comfortable with any question that she has. Will definitely use her for tutoring moving forward even after the exam

Great Tutor who makes online education easy

Mrs. Nicole is very nice and patient. I like when she plays games with me, they help me learn in a fun way. Sometimes in my school classroom Zoom meeting it is hard for me to stay focused but with Mrs. Nicole I don't ever have trouble. Time flies when you're having fun.

Kind, fun, amazing tutor!

Nicole did wonderful work with my 3rd grader! I was initially hesitant about putting him into online tutoring since online school wasn't going so well for him, but now I am glad I did. Over the course of their session, I could hear my son laughing in the other room, as well as giving answers to math questions as they worked. He was able to draw on the screen, to use write out his math problems, and then Nicole sent images of the screens after the session so that we could easily transcribe the work they did to his homework sheets. My son loved the session, and I loved not having to spend stressful hours trying to teach him math I barely remember! Online tutoring is not like online school! It's one on one, it's interactive, and with Nicole, it seems to also be fun!
