##### About Nicole

I believe that every student can learn. I have worked with students of all ages and competencies, and have experience differentiating instruction so that every student can be successful. While working with students, I observe each individual to see how each student learns, and then teach the student the way that will work the best for him or her. This may change based on subject matter or concepts.

I am a certified teacher for students Preschool through 8th grade, with additional certifications in Special Education and Middle School Mathematics.

I encourage students to work through problems, and offer guidance or direct instruction throughout when needed. Parental input on student struggles and strengths are also important to the success of each student. Positive reinforcement during tutoring sessions allows students to feel more comfortable, and gives them the confidence to transfer new knowledge to the classroom, which is ultimately the goal of all tutoring sessions.

I am certified to teach math through 8th grade.

I understand the Common Core standards and look for ways to make the standards accessible for students. Working through easier problems, and then increasing the difficulty makes the Common Core easier for students to understand.

I have taught 4th-6th grade in the public schools, and tutored students starting in Preschool with reading and math readiness skills. I not only focus on current lessons, but can help students improve on base skills to improve overall achievement in school.

I worked with students in the Special Education field for 8 years. Helping students to maintain focus and repeating information for these students is important to help the students become successful.

Watching students succeed makes tutoring the most rewarding job that I can have, as I get to specifically help students achieve success on a regular basis. The small steps in a one-on-one session make the larger leaps after repeated sessions extremely rewarding.
