My name is Nicole Kappel. I have been involved in education since I was young. My first experience was tutoring general coursework for students grade 3-5. After that, I continued tutoring friends who needed help with math coursework for many years. After I began college, I started working at a Children's Museum helping Biology Education students create lesson plans to teach science to students age 11-14 and also to give them the tools to teach those topics to younger children later on. While pursuing my Master's degree in Biology, I taught several college level laboratory courses including "Bio 101", "Biological Diversity", "Botany", "Economic Botany", and "Ecology & Conservation of Plants". I have also worked as an Environmental Educator teaching ages 4-10 about science, nature, and other related topics.
I love to teach and to help students to understand concepts as well as to become independent learners. My strengths in teaching Math, Science, and testing will be an asset to any student. I look forward to using my skills to help students to succeed.
