About Niki

I am interested in teaching, connecting with, and helping students In elementary, middle, and high school. I have a Bachelors in Psychology and Communication from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, a Masters in Industrial Organizational Psychology from Virginia Tech, and I'm currently working on my PhD.

My goal is to help students in the areas of math, reading, and writing. I have been working with students from the time I've been in high-school. I've tutored elementary and middle-school in reading and math. I have taught classes in various disciplines of psychology and have worked with a couple hundred students during my time as a teacher over the last five years.

I believe my biggest strength is finding different ways of explaining concepts to students. After all, everyone has different methods of learning. During my time as a teacher, I've found that it is very important to learn what motivates a student to learn and use that drive to help them understand new material and concepts. In my experience, this method helps to form a good relationship with a student and ultimately leads to their success.

I am able to conduct lessons in person or via skype. I look forward to hearing from you!
