About Nicole

I am a college professor and professional academic tutor. My academic background is in writing, creative writing, literature, and women's and gender studies, although I have a wide variety of interests, which makes me more adept at helping students with paper writing and research across disciplines.

Since Fall 2014, I have taught writing and literature at Essex County College, and have had the pleasure of working with a diverse group of students who have a wide range of ages and life experiences, as well as experience working with students with disabilities or special needs, and ESL students. I have tutored my own students to ensure outcomes success as well as worked with the writing center on campus to coordinate our efforts to help students reach their goals. There is nothing more gratifying than seeing someone succeed under your care and guidance!

Additionally, I am a Professional Writing Tutor for Berkeley College, and work with students in all disciplines and at all stages of their education (including graduate students). As a tutor for the Writing Center at Passaic County Community College, I tutor students in writing intensive and college level courses. I have privately tutored younger students down through the 5th grade, and am particularly good at working with students in the Middle School- College/Graduate School range.

What I love about tutoring is the way I can trace an individual's growth and enjoy their accomplishments with them. When my students succeed, I succeed! Tutoring is a wonderful way to make sure a person reaches their individual potential, and it's why I enjoy it so much!

I have extensive experience in English, Literature, Proofreading, Reading, and Writing. My experience is unique because it is not just academic, it is hands on! My hands on experience comes from teaching and tutoring, but also from my experience as a freelance writer and as an office administrator (that's where I learned what makes a good resume, and why so many people have entrusted me to help them shape theirs).

If you're looking for a tutor who can identify and help you reach your individual potential, and work with your unique needs as a student or writer, I'm the tutor you're looking for. To see if we are a good match to work together or to schedule an appointment with me, please message me!

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

My experience as a college professor is as an English professor. I am currently working on finishing my master's degree in English, and majored in Literature as an undergraduate.

Grammar

Grammar is an integral part of effective communication, particularly in writing. I have a proven track record of helping students identify patterns of grammatical errors, and teaching them how to address the issues.

Reading

My background is in English Literature, and being a good reader is an important part of this. I have integrated reading skills into the syllabi of my college courses, as this is an incredibly important skill to have. I have been a lifelong avid reader, and enjoy reading books, poetry, news articles, and many other forms of writing.

Writing

Writing is one of my major areas of expertise. I have taught writing courses at a community college since Fall 2014. I am a professional academic tutor at a 4 year college and regularly work with graduate students on their writing skills as well. Additionally, I have a strong history of successful writing in both graduate school and college, and have presented my writing and research at many academic conferences.
