"Writing and History Mentor"
I come from a family of teachers, especially English! I grew up in an environment committed to clarity in both oral and verbal communication. I also have to credit my eight brothers and sisters for teaching me the virtue of patience and learning how to deal with a wide assortment of personalities.
After earning a BA in English from Columbia University, I received my Masters in Education at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.
I have taught from the third grade up to senior level sub... ... More

Blair H is a dream tutor. In the past, our daughter often got lost in reading: focusing on minor points, losing the trajectory of arguments. Blair has an uncanny knack for picking perfect texts to analyze -- from The New Yorker, the Atlantic and so on. Our daughter has been improving like mad, and is relishing the process. Blair loves reading and writing (she's a published writer herself) and communicates this joy to her students. A Super Plus!

"Curriculum for Struggling Readers, Writers, ESL, and TOEFL test prep"
I became a tutor during my undergraduate studies. During this time, my children were in elementary, middle, and high schools. Over the years, I frequented their schools as a volunteer and realized that the number of students struggling with reading, writing, and English had continuously increased. Initially I went back to school to facilitate these student populations with English, but I began teaching adult English learners through a local tutoring program and expanded my knowledge of learni... ...

My wife and I have tried to learn a foreign language before but the various teachers/tutors we had lessened our desire instead of enhancing it! We decided to try and learn Italian and found Nicole through WyzAnt! In summary, Nikki was awesome!
Nikki gave three of us Italian lessons over the course of three months. There was my wife, our good friend Nicole and myself. We all work at the same facility and Nikki right away was willing to come and meet us during our lunch hour (once/week). Nikki was always on time and ready for our lesson. She made us want to learn. But it was more than that. You could tell she loved Italy and loved Italian. She is Italian, so I am sure that helped! She bonded right away with my wife and Nicole and they enjoyed Nikki's company very much.
Nikki had us get a college level book (introductory book to Italian) and went through sections of that book with us. She did give us some homework which we didn't do as much as we should of but Nikki was enthusiastic as ever each lesson. She made learning fun and didn't get on our case when we spoke English and was very encouraging to us even when we got answers wrong.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Nikki to anyone learning Italian. She is Italian, breathes Italian and is a wonderful person, mother and each lesson was like being with a good friend. If we decide to continue on our quest to become fluent in Italian we will certainly continue with her. For now we are heading to the Italian Island Sardinia and will be able to speak some Italian on our cycling tour because we had Italian lessons with Nikki! Thanks for all your help and patience Nikki!
