Nikki: Math

Math Tutor

Background
A Minnesota native, I grew up in Brainerd and have lived in the Twin Cities for the past seven years. I completed my undergrad at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul where I earned a BA in Mathematics with a focus on Education as well as my license to teach Math for grades 6-12. I spent a year completing my student teaching and long-call subbing in Minneapolis Public Schools, and have been teaching middle school math in Columbia Heights for the past two years.

Free Time
I have a new rescue dog named Blanco who is the love of my life! I love spending time with him outdoors going on hikes and playing at the lake. I am a huge fan of all water sports and soaking up rays during Minnesota summers!

Goals
I have always been very passionate about Math and I love to share my excitement with students. I know math can be very difficult and sometimes frustrating for many people, and I love to help students make more sense of what they are learning and how the concepts are all connected. My goal as a math teacher is to encourage students to practice their critical thinking and problem-solving skills to tackle math problems from a place that MAKES SENSE to them
