About Nikki

I graduated from UMBC with a Bachelors degree in Sociology. I have spent time teaching students in a classroom setting through my work with The Literacy Lab. I tutor a caseload of 18 students on a daily basis. I spend 20 minutes working with each student individually and my students range from grades K-3. We work on letter sounds, phoneme blending and segmenting, word blending, reading comprehension, and fluency skills. I use a number of different interventions that were designed by the Missouri Reading Corps. My favorite thing about tutoring my students at the Literacy Lab [and in my outdoor education job] is watching a student finally understand and grasp a concept they were struggling with before. The facial expression that comes with the feeling of success is extremely rewarding, and it also makes me feel excited too.

I studied Spanish for four years in high school. I began studying Spanish at the beginner level, and as a result of exceptional grades and skill was given special permission to skip from level 4 straight to the AP level for my senior year of high school. I also studied Spanish for four semesters during my time in college, non-consecutively.

I have taken numerous college writing courses, both covering creative writing and academic writing skills. I also took writing-intensive courses while at Swarthmore College and UMBC. In addition, I have been published on several occasions, both in a literary magazine and with my summer outdoor education program. I have provided writing and grammar support for many of my classmates, although no formal tutoring in college level English. My work with The Literacy Lab has given me a large skill set for tutoring younger students in literacy and fluency.

I am extremely passionate about learning and welcome any inquiries about English and Spanish tutoring. I can tutor at any level for English and can work with most levels for Spanish. I hope to hear from you soon!

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.

Sociology

I graduated from UMBC with a Bachelors degree in Sociology. I attended four different colleges and took a very wide range of both lower level and upper level Sociology courses. I focused on socioeconomics and health/medical sociology, but I have taken courses in almost all possible subject areas within sociology, including sociological research.
