She prepares students for all sections of the SAT and ACT tests, as well as the Literature AP. She supports students through the private school and college admission process and worked at a college admission company in New York, providing support with applications, admission essays, and interview skills.  She served as Editor in Chief at NYU’s Comparative Literature Journal during her undergraduate studies, and has published a number of articles in both English and Italian.
Nicole has received grants to study in Italy and Germany, and to present her research at Yale UC Berkeley and NYU, was the recipient of The Dean’s Scholarship to NYU, and scored in the 99th percentile on the SAT. She is grateful for the impact of her education on her own life and realizes the life-changing opportunities a quality education can have for young people. In her free time, Nicole is a passionate rose gardener, fiction writer, avid reader, and archer.”
