Hi! My name is Madison Hicks. I have been a babysitter/nanny for almost seven years. I enjoy the presence of children. I am currently a Student at Wake Technical Community College. I intend to transfer to North Carolina Central University to become a nurse and also get my BSN. Then, I plan to become a Nurse Anesthetist. I have tons of ambitions. I am ready to make my dreams become reality. I plan to let nothing hold me back!
I grew up happy in a "broken" home. My parents both remarried and strengthened my raising with step-parents who shared with me the lessons of life they each had learned. The outcome of my childhood is that I am now a strong independent woman who generally puts others first. I have ambition to follow my dreams, knowledge to do so and both training and talents to accomplish my goals.

My name is Erica Battles and I am a junior music education major at Meredith College. My primary instrument at Meredith is the oboe, but I also play the flute, piano, and guitar! I have two younger brothers and two dogs. I have a passion for learning and teaching and I hope to one day teach middle school band. Aside from being a tutor, I also teach marching band at a high school in Raleigh, NC, and give private music lessons. I like to go on walks and spend time with my friends and family.
I have always been very successful in school, and I take pride in being an academic resource for my peers and for younger students. I was a freshman mentor my junior and senior year of high school, and I hope to continue to be a resource for high schoolers as they prepare for college. I tutor my colleagues in music theory at Meredith several times a week. I am very organized and I teach good study (or practice) habits to each of my students. I enjoy meeting new people and I love working with children!
