About Nicole

I have discovered a personal passion for languages, and enjoy sharing my enthusiasm with language students. Having learned Spanish through language immersion, my goal is to bring an immersion-style learning experience to the student. Having tutored English students of all ages in Argentina, China, and Italy, I find myself back in the States sharing fun techniques with Spanish students.

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.

Business

With a degree in business administration, I have assisted many small business owners with organization, bookkeeping, and office management.

Chinese

I have lived in Beijing and continue to watch Chinese TV daily to maintain my communication skills. I am very enthusiastic about teaching Mandarin because it is challenging but rewarding. I am very comfortable teaching beginners and advanced levels upon evaluation.

College Counseling

It is quite common and beneficial for students preparing for college to have someone outside of their family, a neutral third party, assist with preparation for college.

My tutoring experience began at a private academy. The owner of the academy hired me to work with her son, not in my specific subject area, but in what seemed to be very general areas: study skills, organization, time management, and college counseling. I have since started tutoring many students in foreign languages, and it is not unusual for their parents to request that our sessions be spent entirely on topics that can be an area of tension within their family: college counseling.

From researching paths and specific programs to writing essays and effectively completing the application process, I can help your student define goals and take the necessary steps toward entering college.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL privately and in university classrooms in Argentina, China, Italy, the US and online. I have acquired specializations in Business English, TOEFL test prep, and TESOL certification training for teachers.

Study Skills

My tutoring experience began at a private academy where I taught Spanish. The director noticed that I not only helped students with the language, but I helped them evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, organize their materials, and prioritize their study time. She had me work with her son on a weekly basis in all subjects, and I now enjoy helping others with their study skills.
