Hello! My name is Nicole. I am a former history teacher turned full-time mother who works as a private tutor. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Gettysburg College with a degree in history, and I have a Master's Degree in Education from Rutgers University. I worked at Chatham High School as a history teacher for 8 years. Most of my experience is in teaching AP US History, and I had great success with my students. In fact, over 99% of students who took my class passed the AP US History test, and the vast majority scored a 4 or a 5!
Currently, I am working part-time teaching English online to students in China.
As a certified history teacher, I am very familiar with helping students compose well-structured essays and papers. In my classes, I assigned essays frequently and have also provided private tutoring to students in writing for over five years. I have attended College Board's seminars for AP US History teachers and thus am familiar with the requirements for AP History essays. I know the rubrics and can coach students and help them develop their writing. My goal is for all the students I work with to improve their ability to write and earn a top score on AP History tests.
The history classes I taught included AP United States History, Honors US History, regular US History, and World History.
I love to build relationships with my students and watch their skills grow and develop! I work with my students closely so that they truly master a subject and not just memorize it. Being a teacher and tutor has been a very rewarding experience. Please contact with with any questions that you may have and we can see if I am a good fit for you!
