I have been a teacher for 17 years, 10 years in public school and 7 years in Christian school. Although my degree is in Spanish, the bulk of my teaching experience has been in English. I graduated from college with minors in English (36 hours), history, and business management. I have a passion for writing, and I just published my first book entitled "Beyond the Gift of Life," a book about making the commitment to be a stay-at-home mom while your children are in their preschool years.

Last year, I had the privilege of teaching two SAT prep classes, where we focused a great deal on the persuasive essay, critical thinking skills, and, of course, the math, reading, and writing portions of the test. I absolutely loved it, and many of my students scored in the 1700-1900 range.

I have taught all levels from 7th to 12th grade, and my areas of responsibility have included: English, Spanish, art/theater arts, speech, Bible, keyboarding, and yearbook. I am also pretty skilled in math and took all honors math in high school.

With the right amount of patience, skill, humor, and a willingness to adapt to individual students' needs, I believe I can be a valuable resource to any student who is struggling academically.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have taught English for about 18 years at all levels from 7th to 12th grade. I am also a published author. Language is my strongest suit. I have even taught a couple of classes in SAT Prep. I graduated from Texas A&M with 36 hours of English for one of my minors.

Amazing tutor — Nikki was our son's tutor last year, and he would not have made it through Algebra without her help. She is his tutor again this year for Geometry. She is very patient, easy for him to talk to and ask questions. She explains the work in a way he can understand. Once again, he would not be passing without her help. Nikki is also very quick to reply to any questions or requests to change or add days ...
