I'm Niccole! I have a Master's degree in English, specializing in Rhetoric and Composition, as well as a B.A. in Biology with a minor in Spanish. I have been teaching at Kent State University for the past two years, and have been tutoring for the past four. With my experience tutoring and teaching, I've realized that the best learning comes when students are encouraged to make the breakthrough themselves. My style is to provide students with all the tools to succeed, to create a framework of learning, to demonstrate when necessary--but to encourage them to come up with the final answers, to strive to be creative and write like themselves, not like a template. Real understanding comes from problem solving and working together, not from being given answers or pure rote memorization.

As a tutor, I build off what I do as a college teach, providing a mix of fun and practical activities, depending on the nature of the student's preferences and what skills need to be learned. There are more ways to practice English than just through pure reading and essays, and I enjoy working with students to find the best combination for learning. But I'm also happy to discuss homework assignments to help students find success in that arena. My tutoring style is all about engagement and effort in the moment, and not about giving them extra worksheets to take up time they don't have!

I have over three years experience with tutoring students in writing, both in groups and one-on-one. I am experienced in tutoring at all levels of writing and writing skills, from brainstorming and working on novels to ESL skill work. I have been teaching English composition at the college level for the past year. I am also experienced with tutoring ACT English and Reading. I believe in adapting my tutoring style to each student and listening to their needs in order to create the best curriculum.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions; I'm easy to contact and happy to discuss any requests. I look forward to our first lesson!
