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, Honors Chemistry, and AP Chemistry at several tutoring centers, and privately for over 10 years. 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 over 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 teach High School Chemistry, SAT Chemistry, AP and College level 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 children over the age of 6, High School 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. I always strive to adapt to the needs and goals of my students.

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!
