I have a 4.0 and am a member of the Chi Sigma Iota honors society. I believe that there is a connection between academic achievement and confidence, and I am dedicated to helping youth improve both.

Hello! My name is Nikki and I am currently a graduate student at Portland State University obtaining a Master’s degree in School Counseling. I have a 4.0 and am a member of the Chi Sigma Iota honors society. I believe that there is a connection between academic achievement and confidence, and I am dedicated to helping youth improve both. I have over 1500 hours of experience tutoring high school math, both one-on-one and classroom-wide. These hours come from my service as an AmeriCorps member working in the Beaverton School District, teaching practicum in the Vancouver School District, and independent tutoring. Additionally, I spent two years doing literacy intervention in PPS and Northwest Reading Clinic. During my time there, I worked one-on-one with students ages 6-24 to improve literacy skills such as reading comprehension, spelling, writing, and editing.

In addition to direct tutoring, I enjoy proof reading and providing students with tips and tools for studying, taking notes, and advocating for themselves in the classroom. While students vary in their comfort levels speaking in the classroom or directly with teachers, I take their right to educational support seriously and am happy to advocate on their behalf.

I am committed to creatively engaging individual learning needs and have a reputation for being encouraging, dedicated, and highly reliable. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns. I look forward to working with you!

Excellent at Explaining Math

My teenager could finally understand geometry after Nicole explained it in a way that’s easy to understand. My daughter really appreciates the extra help. Gives her a boost to get her grade up in a subject that is very difficult for her.

Heart of a teacher

Nikki has definitely found her calling, she is meant to teach! Not only is she kind and patient she knew the material Algebra 1 my son needed to cover. She came to the lesson prepared did an interactive assessment, my son did not feel the typical pressure of test taking with her. Very pleased with her services overall!
