About Nicole

I am currently a senior at Florida State University and I am studying Philosophy and English. My English degree is focused on Editing, Writing and Media, however I am proficient in creative writing as well. I am in the process of Graduate School applications; I plan to pursue English via Rhetorical Theory and Composition.

I have been the Copy Editor of several publications, including two that I have helped start, and I plan on using my extensive knowledge of grammar and syntax structure to enhance the general public's understanding on language in relation to reality.

I believe that every student possesses the ability to understand how language works, because it is intuitive in nature. My tutoring style gives students a chance to come to this realization on their own, making them more confident about what they are struggling with in order to overcome the challenges along the way.

Tutoring is as rewarding for students as it is for myself. I make sure that students, at least for the time spent with me, are passionate about how language, vocabulary or grammar relate to something they are interested in. Merging subjects makes harder concepts easier to grasp by taking away their unfamiliarity.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have studied English since high school. In college I majored in English with a concentration in Editing, Writing and Media. I have taken more than 30 English courses during my academic career. I currently write for three publications and edit for another, giving me enough experience to help students edit, write and read more effectively.

Grammar

In college I majored in English with a concentration in Editing, Writing and Media. Because of this education history, I am well versed in grammar and sentence structure. I currently am a copy editor for an online tech magazine, giving me more than enough experience with grammar to help students understand it.

Reading

I have tutored several third graders in Reading and Writing within the last four years in Tallahassee. I am able to teach a variety of ways, with workbooks, notecards and sample reading tests.

SAT Writing

In my experience applying to colleges, I took the SAT seven different times. This enabled me to become extremely familiar with the layout, grading and question style of the test. Having majored in English in college, I am able to help tutor other in grammar and syntax, two major components of the SAT writing exam.

Vocabulary

As a child, my parents would have me copy the dictionary whenever I complained that I was bored. I grew up using multi-level vocabulary words at an early age, and it has continued to manifest in my written and verbal communication since. In college I majored in English, exposing me to many uses for vocabulary and how to teach it to others.

Writing

I currently write for three publications and have written over two dozen poems and several short stories. I am also currently working on a novel. Because of my BA in English I have learned about writing in many forms, professional and not, making it easy for me to better students' ability to write creatively and professionally.
