I have a BS in Biology with experience in teaching/tutoring adult students. I employ visual learning techniques as well as project-based learning to help students grasp abstract concepts with deeper understanding. All lessons are tailored to the students learning style and lifestyle.
I was a teaching assistant for the genomics and bioinformatics course at my university for 3 years. I have been a part-time tutor for 3+ years, teaching various math and science subjects to high school and college students. I have tutored earth science, biology, and pre-algebra students.

Nicole has always been a well grounded individual since as far as I can remember. She was always willing to help other student in her school and neighborhood; volunteer tutoring. At the age of 10 she became the youngest reader for the Youth Summer of Reading in the Public Library; there she read books to the neighboring children in the children's department during the summer. She later became the youngest to perform duties in the adult department at the said library. Nicole has always had a heart for helping the less fortunate; she continues to spread her knowledge of education to any individual who request her assistant. While in 8th grade she was in the advanced programs and then began to take classes at the Syracuse University. She became a member of the Medical Magnet Program in middle school. In fifth grade, she wrote an article on asthma, and was published in the newspaper. Along with many other achievements and participation, she went on to City College of New York where she became the Professor's assistant, during her studies. Nicole wrote lesson plans for college, she teaches, and was sent to other states to give presentations. Nicole wrote and publish articles for the college. She continues to do voluntary service in Doctor's offices, Hospital, and Clinics, medical center/Red Cross; there she performs various assignments; Just to name a few! There is no doubt that Nicole will be an outstanding candidate in your program.
