About Nicky

I have loved being an early childhood teacher for the past 7 years, and was inspired to teach by my own wonderful experiences growing up. I may not have been the top student, but I had a lot of heart, and respect, for my teachers and the learning process.

Through running my own classroom, tutoring for a couple of summers before becoming a mom and in the graduate classes I have taken, I have discovered that the most fruitful learning does not just come from a lesson; it is driven by the connection between teacher and student! I have acquired countless moments of pride in my students over the past 7 years. I strongly believe that the genuine care those students felt from me, coupled with their enthusiasm and desire to learn, made each of those successes happen.

My love for literature has been lifelong and my respect for the written word runs deep. In my classroom, my students know that 'books are our friends' and our 'teachers', too. I use literature in countless creative ways to not just make my students successful, but enthusiastic and connected, too! Writing has always been my strongest, and most enjoyable, skill and I am proud of the patience and teaching style I possess to work with written language in the ways my students need me to.

I provide a caring, patient and positive style of tutoring for elementary students with a genuine love for all the elements of the written word!
