About Nicole

Certified ESL teacher-tutor with 10 years of experience. I have taught classes and conducted one-on-one tutoring sessions. I am skilled in writing, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. Experience ranges from assisting a high school student with SAT essay preparation, college essay enhancement, and editing term papers, to helping adults strengthen speaking skills, by way of correcting pronunciation, reviewing grammar rules, and doing whatever it takes to help them feel confident.

I really enjoy creating lesson plans that are customized to the needs of my clients. I am flexible and able to change tactics quickly if needed.

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.

Career Development

Prior to moving to North Carolina, I worked for 5 years at an Art College in Atlanta. My title was Career Services Advisor and I assisted our graduates in finding employment opportunities within 6 months of graduating.

In this role I assisted them with writing cover letters, resumes and thank you notes. I also coached them on interviewing skills and how to dress properly for the interview.

Additionally, I marketed our graduates to local employers, sending out resumes, assisting with setting up interviews, as well as planning job fairs.

ESL/ESOL

In the early 2000s, I taught ESL for 4 years on a volunteer basis. My class was the advanced speaker class, the highest level of achievement in the organization I taught for. I worked with predominantly Hispanic students, but also had students from Poland, France, Brazil and Uzbekistan. We worked on vocabulary, enunciation, proper verb usage, listening skills, etc.

Since 2010, I taught ESL briefly for a local ESL program in Raleigh, and I worked with a Korean WyzAnt client for two years. We did grammar, SAT prep (English and Reading) and I assisted him with high school term papers and college essays.

Spanish

I fell in love with Spanish when I was introduced in junior high. I took more classes in college and decided to major in languages (French and Spanish). I am conversational, and have been told that my accent sounds native, but I am working on perfecting my conditionals, future perfects, and other future tenses.

Writing

I have been working with my ESL student editing research papers, helping him study for the SAT writing portion and now assisting with college application essays.

The best tutor for you!

Nicole has been teaching me since 2010. At first I had poor grades at school due to lack of English skill. After I have met Nicole and worked together, however, I can saliently notice my improvement in English grammar, vocabulary, and writing skills. She enjoys teaching and feels responsible for her students. This unique characteristic distinguishes her from others. Even if I ask her a question ou
