Hi! My name is Nikki and I am currently a junior high teacher looking to help you out! I currently teach Spanish in Elmhurst, Illinois. Last year, I taught at a high school, and am very comfortable tutoring students of all ages. I am certified to teach Spanish, language arts, math, and social studies, and can also help with ACT and college planning. I attended the University of Illinois, receiving degrees in Teaching of Spanish as well as Psychology.
I have been tutoring students for as long as I can remember. Being the oldest of six children, I have always taken on the responsibility with helping my younger siblings succeed in school. We have spent countless hours focusing on their homework completion, as well as study skills and goal setting. I privately tutor students regularly at both the middle school and high school levels who struggle with motivation to complete work. I believe it is important for the student to have a say in the way their tutor teaches, so I am always sure to ask the student at the start of each session their goal for the day and cater to that throughout the lesson. That way, we are working together, rather than the student being "forced" to be tutored.
I look forward to hearing from you and working with you! Thank you for your time.

Study Skills

As a current junior high (grades 6-8) teacher, we spend quite a bit of time in class focusing on study skills. This is particularly important in Spanish which is very unfamiliar to many students. We talk about the idea of memorizing vs. learning for retention. I have much experience tutoring students who struggle with studying and give them tips based on pedagogical studies as well as my own experiences.
