About Nicole

I have a very varied background and teaching experience. I hold a BA from Rutgers University where I graduated with High Honors and a MS in Chemistry from Cornell University. I started teaching after graduating, building on the teaching experience that I acquired while being a graduate student. Also I have worked at Educational Testing Services helping to prepare High School tests. I have over 7 years teaching experience in High School and have tutored SAT Chemistry, High School Chemistry and Honors Chemistry at several tutoring centers for the last 9 years. I have also helped with AP Chemistry. Through these years I have helped many students, both struggling students and honors students, to develop their own potential and confidence.

I also teach French: I have native fluency and graduated from a French High School with Honors before coming to the USA. I have much experience teaching French, having taught at the Alliance Française in Boston and also teaching French to private students of all ages for about ten years. I have also taught SAT French through a tutoring center.
Here is how one of my own private French student, Joan H. of Ridgewood, NJ feels about my French classes:
"Nicole is a great French teacher! She's a native French speaker and a trained and skilled teacher who prepares lessons to meet the student where she is. I've been studying French with her on a one-on-one basis for about five years. There is no question my French has improved significantly during our time together. She works on all aspects of learning a language: speaking, understanding, grammar, reading and conversation. She makes it lively and interesting by tailoring the class to my own interests. I highly recommend her."

Regarding Chemistry, I specialize in High School Chemistry, and SAT Chemistry. I am very patient and students feel comfortable asking questions. I strengthen problem solving techniques by teaching how to use their knowledge in order to solve problems. I try to develop the student's confidence in his ability to tackle the problem at hand. I adapt to the student's needs so as to help them to develop their own potential and confidence. Regarding French, I teach students and adults, at the beginner and intermediate levels. The teaching technique depends on the level and the age of the student. I often emphasize learning via a conversational style.

As a tutor I really enjoy feeling that I am helping my students and making a difference. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Excellent Tutor!

Nicole is a great tutor,very helpful and knowledgeable. Olivia is full of confidence after working with Nicole. Never having used a tutor before, our daughter was hesitant to start, but immediately felt a connection with and found confidence in Nicole. Nicole did a great job of answering my daughter's questions on the material and reviewing everything that my daughter was uncertain about. She is
