Reading

Reading

I first started teaching reading when I taught middle school students who were learning English as a second language. I had the best mentor in the world who is a literacy coach and is an expert in the field. The first step I take in helping students become better readers is to connect with them as individuals and use materials that peak their interest. I have been working with my student Kelsey (see Tim's review) for two school years and she went from reluctant reader to "What are we reading next?". She not only has in interest in reading now, but also markedly improved her MAP scores.

Many students find themselves feeling frustrated when it comes time to read a novel. I will help students learn faster ways of reading and interpretation. We will also discuss and summarize readings in order to build analysis skills. Most importantly, we will have fun learning.

Great Start!

Appreciated that Nikki did a little homework finding out what my daughter liked and did not like to read. When we met for our first lesson, she had stuff ready to go and dive into reading. Not sure if my reluctant reading daughter liked it but I did.

Knowledgeable and responsive tutor

Nikki was really helpful with Spanish vocabulary and helped me with my Spanish speaking test. She also helped me with pronunciation of difficult Spanish words and enunciating the words clearly.

A pleasure to work with

Nikki is helping my son with reading comprehension and she makes it interesting for him and challenges him to think of things in a new way.

Tanya, 17 lessons with Nikki

Amazing tutor!

Nikki started working with my son about a month and a half ago. She's patient, knowledgeable, and keeps his tutoring sessions always interesting. She seems to really enjoy her job and is enthusiastic when working with my son. Definitely a keeper!!

Knowledgeable and wonderful with kids

Nikki came prepared for the lesson. She requested materials from my daughter ahead of time and it assisted greatly with the session. My daughter loved her first lesson with Nikki and is looking forward to the next. Extremely happy Mom!

Rosa, 7 lessons with Nikki

Great tutor made my daughter feel comfortable

Nikki was so patient with my daughter - I highly recommend her! We asked her to step in to help my daughter's grade on her final and she definitely came through. I'm sure her grade when up substantially as opposed to how it was looking without Nikki's help. Thank you so much Nikki for getting her on track!
