About Nicole

Hello prospective students and parents.

I am currently a graduate student living in Philadelphia, PA. During my undergraduate career, I was a teaching assistant and tutor for an undergraduate bioinformatics class for 3 years. During that time, I had the opportunity to co-author a poster presentation for the 2010 American Society for Cell Biology conference. I also tutored earth science and biology part-time with Club Z! in home tutoring for a few months. I believe a strong grasp on fundamentals is key to learning. When diving into a challenging concept, it is best to build on what is already learned. To help a student learn without relying on memorization is key. This provides a sense of true mastery and confidence.

My tutoring approach varies in some aspects with each student, I observe the student and work to build a healthy tutoring relationship in order to make the student as comfortable as possible and to ensure optimal communication. I work to understand what motivates each student and what ultimately leads them to thrive. I assess their strengths and weaknesses. I am good at communicating with people and I strive to build a rapport with the students I work with and I become very invested in my students, ensuring that their success and goals are always top priority.
