Nicole is our secret weapon! My four year old son started reading the very first day he worked with Nicole! Our two year old daughter is so advanced for her age... she can count to 30, knows all of her letters, and is starting to sound out words with Nicole's help.
Nicole is so proactive, develops the lesson plans and all of the materials that go along with it. I have never been anything short of impressed.
If I had to pick between preschool and Nicole, I would definitely choose Nicole.

Nicole has been such a blessing for my daughter (6th grade). My daughter has struggled with math & taking direction from myself in math since the 2nd grade & always passed with an assisted grade. In the few short months she's been working with us my daughter has a high C all on her own. Nicole plays fun interactive games involving numbers that really get my daughter thinking & keeps her open to learning. I look forward to the continuing progress & would highly recommend her!

My freshman just started working with Nicole, and his attitude after the first session was so upbeat! The very next day he earned a B on his math quiz...his first this year! So glad we found you Nicole :)

Tutoring Experience

After acing a statistics class during my freshman year in college, my junior college asked to hire me as an academic tutor for mathematics. I tutored students from 18-65 years old. 

After tutoring at the college for a year, I began to tutor students of all ages in a private setting. I went on to finalize my business by acquiring a business license. During the time I was finalizing my business, I was a physical education teacher as well as a substitute teacher in a private elementary school.
