Tutor profile: Nikki R.
IT professional with a background in math, computer science, and education
Hi, my name is Nikki! I'm a lifelong learner and enjoy sharing knowledge with those around me. In my free time, I enjoy taking ballet classes, cooking, and spending time with my dog. I believe tutoring should empower students and help them build confidence in the desired content area. With a background in math, computer science, and education, I can't wait to help students reach their educational goals.
In college, I completed some coursework in both early childhood and secondary education programs, including field work teaching individual classes. Throughout college, I tutored for various math classes, both privately, as well as through a student assistance program for first-generation college students.
