About Nikki

I have taught various Social Studies classes from 4th through 11th grades. I have my Special Ed. in mild interventions license pending. I have a hands-on philosophy in teaching and enjoy watching my students grow through fun and inventive projects. For three years I worked in a rehabilitation facility for emotionally disturbed children. My primary duties were teaching Social Studies, but I also taught 8th grade Science, Study Skills, 6th grade English, Child Development, and Health. I enjoy the challenge of helping students who "hate" school change their minds. I believe each student has a specific way of learning and strive to find that way and open their educational world to bring that student the best and most complete education possible.

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.
