About Nicole

Growing up, I knew I wanted to become a teacher because of how much I thoroughly enjoyed tutoring my classmates. It was not simply the gratification that a student I had helped performed well on a test but more a feeling of pride that I had helped explain something in a way that made a difference to someone. To this day that feeling has not subsided as I continue to find enjoyment and excitement when I can help a student turn on that light bulb of understanding!

I studied education at William Paterson University and became a science and math teacher as those subjects have been my passion since I was a child. Through not just teaching but tutoring as well, I have been encouraging students to build confidence in these subject areas.

Since I was a child, I have been tutoring my peers in math and now that I am a certified middle school math teacher, I feel more blessed than ever to be there to help my students and tutors every step of the way!

Although I do have a 24 hr. cancellation policy, I do encourage tutors to contact me to reschedule if and when a conflict arises. I look forward to hearing from you and being the person you rely on to help you be successful in the field of mathematics!

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.

ACT Math

In addition to previous ACT tutoring, I have tutored many high school students in math such as Algebra 2, Pre-calculus, and Trigonometry.

Algebra 1

I've been tutoring algebra 1 for at least 6 years and have helped many students understand better and improve their grades.

Algebra 2

In addition to previous ACT tutoring, I have tutored many high school students in math such as Algebra 2, Pre-calculus, and Trigonometry.

Prealgebra

Currently, I teach 6th-grade math in which the curriculum includes general pre-algebra concepts. I have been tutoring pre-algebra for at least ten years, including my peers while still in school! It is extremely important to gain a strong base knowledge of pre-algebra in order to be successful in algebra later on in your school years. My style of tutoring is to be very thorough and give easy to understand explanations so as to achieve the goal of strength and confidence.

SAT Math

I used to work for a Learning Center where I was qualified to teach SAT Math prep. Since working there, I have tutored many other students in preparation for this important test. It is my job to help my students/tutors achieve the best score they can to help prepare them for bright futures!
