Nikki is an amazing teacher. She is not only super knowledgeable about second language instruction but totally bilingual. Her many years of experience are evidenced by her adaptive style, patience and commitment to making sure that her student is getting the most out of each lesson. My teenage daughter is not a difficult student but a somewhat reluctant one at times. Nikki quickly won her over and she enjoys her lessons - miracle! My sister is a translater and an ESL teacher and got to eavesdrop on a lesson. She was super impressed with Nikki’s teaching. Nikki is also just a terrific person and I hope to have her help with my daughter for years to come.
