About Nicole

Hello! My name is Nicole and I am currently studying Developmental Psychology and Education Studies at UC San Diego. My interest in education has been strong since childhood; I have always wanted to learn as much possible in all subjects.

Since high school, I have developed and refined my philosophies on education. As a summary, I believe every person has the capacity to master any subject with one thing: effort. Although the journey may be more challenging for some, all students can succeed with determined effort. I also believe in the power of the arts to provide alternative thinking styles that progress a student's success in "academic" subjects. With this in mind, I strive to provide encouraging, innovative, constructive aid in my students' subject areas with learning methods specific to the student.

Each session I seek to explain the material with patience, observe and understand the student's learning style, provide achievable challenges, and lead a goal-oriented study.

Although I have been trained by a variety of professionals in education, I am always looking to improve my approach to teaching. Therefore, I am very eager to hear constructive feedback from my students!

I have a very flexible summer schedule; please contact me to plan a session!

Algebra 1/2: I have taken and aced Advanced Algebra 1 and 2 as well as precalculus and calculus. I have two years of experience in tutoring for Algebra 2 and enjoy finding new ways to approach tough mathematical concepts.

Elementary (K-6th): I have taught a diverse range of elementary school students over the past six years. I spent five years as a Kindergarten and First grade and one year as a Third grade Sunday School teacher at Green Valley Community Church. I also spent one year as a teaching assistant at El Toyon Elementary School in San Diego as part of an Education Studies class at UCSD. I

Swimming: I spent four years on my high school swim team. I understand stroke technique and have experience administering swim tests for the Boy Scouts of America. I taught beginner swim lessons at UCSD. I also spent one year as an assistant coach for the Special Olympics of Northern California Swim Team. Finally, I have experience as a trained lifeguard and certified Professional Rescuer (Adult and Infant CPR, First Aid, AED).

Although these are my specific interests, I have experience in a variety of different subjects. Please contact me with any academic need and I will help if qualified; if not, I will direct you to someone more qualified. Thank you for considering me as your tutor and I genuinely wish you the best in your education.
