About Nicole

Hi, my name is Nikki! I have a wealth of experience tutoring students of all ages and ability levels.

My professional life has focused in nonprofit management as I have always been driven to work to help others. I have a BA in liberal arts with minors in sociology and English and I have a master's in nonprofit management as well several credits toward a master's in special education degree, as well. I have several years of professional and volunteer work with youth at a risk of dropping out of school. I also have experience working with gifted students at a private school. I would be honored to speak with you about how I might be able to help you or a loved one, love to learn!

Best regards,
Nikki

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

Tests can be very nerve-racking; but there is no need to fear, even if English is not your strongest subject. If one approaches test preparation systematically by topic and the subject matters that exist within the topic, then the ACT need not be the least bit intimidating.

ACT Reading

I have a minor in English and years of experience working with students of all abilities levels in their reading and writing skills. When it comes to preparing for any test, especially big ones like the ACT, it can be daunting; but the key is to stay focused on the way the test is set up and prepare for the structure of it, then there is nothing to worry about! The language arts and reading are my favorite subjects to teach and I would be honored to be of assistance in any way I can.

ADD/ADHD

I have a vast amount of experience working with children and youth; working with those in somewhat out of the ordinary circumstances are my favorite to work with, and tend to be my most successful! I have teaching experience as a teacher's assistant in an elementary school for two years as well as a year and a half of graduate school for special education on top of a graduate degree in nonprofit management, a bachelor's degree in liberal arts with a minor in English.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have teaching experience as a teacher's assistance in an elementary school for two years as well as a year and a half of graduate school for special education on top of a graduate degree in nonprofit management, a bachelor's degree in liberal arts with a minor in English. I have a vast amount of experience working with children and youth; including mentoring an a young lady who was the first person in her family to graduate from high school, due to my tutelage, support, guidance and friendship.

English

Grammar

I have a minor in English and have assisted students of many different ages and range of levels, to strengthen and improve theirs.

Microsoft Word

I have extensive experience with Word; I have been using it since it first came out and I do a lot of writing, proofreading and editing. I am happy to help make it less cumbersome!

Phonics

The experience I had working in elementary special education was a true testament to phonic awareness; I had active experience with how helpful it is in learning to read and write.

Proofreading

Reading

I have a minor degree in English; I have done and continue to do a vast amount of writing and editing for personal, creative, research and professional reasons.
