    Oak Tier
  • Highlight:

    Italian speaking university student offering a wide variety of IBs and IGCSEs.

Nicole attended elementary and middle school in Italy. She obtained her IGCSEs and IB certificates at an international school in Italy (English International School of Padua). She tutored for almost one year in a public middle school in Italy. She is now tutoring in London.

Nicole believes that her teaching style should be based on the student and his/her learning method; for example, if a student is a visual learner, she will focus the lessons on diagrams or photos in order to improve both the quality of the lesson and the level of understanding of the topic. Despite the learning style of the student, the base of the lessons will be mutual trust and respect, allowing a strong connection to be established.

Nicole is currently studying criminology and psychology at university, so everything to do with the study of crime and its relation with the human brain fascinates her. Additionally, she also loves to experiment with different cuisines from all around the world. Another passion she has is the one for music, especially Italian: both modern and 80s/90s. Nicole speaks fluent English. However, Italian is her first language, so she is happy to offer both grammar/vocabulary lessons and conversation sessions. She also studied Spanish for seven years (middle school, IGCSE and IB), in which she is fluent.
