About Nikki

I initially went to college to teach high school English, but I decided to pursue a Master's degree in English composition so I could teach at colleges. I've taught English and communications at Salisbury University, The College of Southern Maryland, and Prince George's Community College (where I currently work full time).

I regained an interest in tutoring through my college teaching. I see that most students are not prepared for college and have lacked the one-on-one teaching experience all students need to thrive. I believe the education system focuses too much on "fixing" student weaknesses, but I value building a relationship with students, identifying their existing strengths and building from there. My favorite moments in teaching and tutoring are when students realize that they have had the agency to learn; they simply needed help uncovering that agency.

I teach grammar, reading, and writing at a community colleges. I have an MA in English composition. I am trained in writing pedagogy (teaching methods). I continuously attend conferences and workshops on grammar and writing issues.

I highly encourage students to contact me before they sit for a placement test at a college or take the SAT, GRE, or ACT tests. A special note on placement tests: scoring high on a placement test can save you money and time in college! Most students score poorly because of the nature of testing, but have the skills and knowledge to score high with a little tutoring!
