About Nichole S.

How can I help you?
I offer tutoring services via skype. In these sessions we will:
-establish goals
-make a plan
-work towards our learning goals
-have a lot of fun!

I can help you with your personal language learning goals. I can also help you with a bigger goal like taking the GRE or applying to an American university.

Who am I?

I’m a nomadic supernerd who has lived, worked and taught in 5 countries. I love learning new languages and being immersed in new cultures. I LOVE to read. I love to try new food. I love the outdoors. I love my amazing supportive family. I write and perform poetry. I believe that thinking positively is powerful. Bright colors make me smile. I love working with kids. I love that moment when it “clicks.” I love the idea that everyone can make a difference in the lives of others.

In January I will be returning to school to get my MA in Education Policy. I want to continue working in education while I am studying which is why teaching online is a perfect situation!

What is my experience?

Since 2006 I have worked with students ages 2-adult. I’ve also managed a small international kindergarten, worked in academic development (writing textbooks and exam questions), and as a teacher trainer. I’ve worked as a consultant helping Chinese students apply to universities in the United States. As a volunteer, I’ve written curriculum, trained teachers and planned after school programs. When I was a kid I worked as a Barrista, so I can also make a mean cuppa coffee!
