About Nicole

I truly love teaching. It's the one thing I've always known I wanted to do since I was a little girl. I have experience working with students at all levels: elementary, middle, high school, university, and homeschooled students. I began studying French in the 7th grade and have actively focused on perfecting my knowledge ever sense. I have an advanced high proficiency rating in both oral and written French. Additionally, I have extensive cultural experience since I have lived and worked in both Paris and Southern France, where I taught English to elementary school students.

French is both my passion and my profession as I am currently a high-school French teacher here in Central Ohio. I have also taught French courses at the college-level. As a French tutor, I focus on grammar and conversation through readings, cultural ideas, and communicative activities. I actively work with parents and students to address which issues and topics they would like covered along with my consultation regarding important topics and areas that need additional treatment. My students can expect to speak and learn in French in an non-intimidating and encouraging setting.

For English, I can focus on grammar, literature, and writing structures. I have extensive experience preparing presentations, essays, and academic articles and can use this experience to help guide students to read and write more in-depth and articulate essays and presentations.

Aside from my life as a teacher, I love cooking, running, playing with my dog, and restoring my historic home. :)

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

I am qualified to tutor English because I have a B.A. in English literature. I also am in the process of obtaining my master's of education in French Foreign language education, which also focuses on larger teaching strategies. Finally, I have written and defended two different theses (one undergraduate honors thesis and on M.A. thesis) in English and am well-versed in structured, academic writing and planning for successful writing and researching.

French

Teaching French is both my passion and my profession. With both a B.A. and an M.A. in French, I am very knowledgeable when it comes to the French language, grammar, and culture. I also am in the process of obtaining my M.Ed in French Foreign Language Education. I currently teach French 1101 and 1102 at Ohio State, so I have experience both in the classroom as well as working one-on-one with individual students. As proof of my proficiency in the language, I have also passed the ACTFL oral and written proficiency tests with Advanced High ratings. Lastly, my experience living and working in France—where I taught Elementary school English—allow me to use relevant cultural knowledge and experiences when working with my students.
