Nicholas Valentini

After graduating from Temple University, Nicholas accepted a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship in Guatemala. During the Fulbright grant experience, Nicholas designed English language curriculum for middle-school students, and SAT and TOEFL exam preparation for Guatemalan high schoolers pursuing higher education in the U.S.

Currently, Nicholas is a graduate student at the University of Pittsburgh in the School of Education and the School of Social Work. As an educator, Nicholas encourages his students to explore how they connect to content on a personal level. He believes that a student’s existing knowledge and experiences are the primary means to understand and retain new or difficult information. For this reason, he seeks to help his students connect to academics in a manner that is meaningful to them as individuals.

*Nicholas possesses all current Pennsylvania clearances.
