##### About Nicole

I am a student at Salem State University, graduating in 2016. I will be obtaining a degree in Elementary Education and Psychology. During my time at Salem State University I have had the opportunities to work with children and adults of all ages and abilities while I was student teaching at Horace Mann Laboratory School and Saltonstall School, volunteering for the Ford and Salem State Together program (F.A.S.S.T.), working as a Resident Assistant and Desk Receptionist for Salem State University Residence Life, and as a peer tutor for the Center of Academic Excellence at Salem State University.

During my student teaching experience, I developed and implemented two-week curriculum sequence on immigration, geometry, historical fiction texts and expository writing. These units involved collaborating with three other fourth-grade teachers at Horace Mann Laboratory School. While working as a peer tutor on campus I have learned that it is important to work with students and their abilities. Everyone has their own pace and level of understanding, which means it i the job of a tutor to adjust to every student they work with. One thing that I love about tutoring is that the students a striving to get better. They are there because they truly believe that they can learn more and develop a better understanding of the content. Working with students who want to learn is a true blessing.

I have been tutoring in Elementary Mathematics for the past year and I absolutely love it. Math is one of my favorite subject to both learn and teach. I have passed my Elementary Mathematics MTEL and plan on getting my certification in mathematics in the near future.

Students education needs a strong vocabulary base to help them develop. With hands on activities and standard work any student can develop a strong vocabulary. I feel that I would be able to help students with that.

My degree is in Elementary Education and in the past year I have worked with elementary students of all ages.
