As a veteran of the corporate world with 20 years of sales and management experience, Susan chose College Nannies, Sitters + Tutors as a way to "leave it better." Matching families with the proper role model leading to a stronger family fulfills her desire. Susan is also actively involved in Make-A-Wish Foundation and has been since 1999. With Make-A-Wish she has chaired fund raising events, spoken on behalf of the organization, but her true love is meeting wish kids and their families and helping make that wish come true. Susan has participated in over 50 wishes and feels honored to be part of such a magical organization. She is also a board member of The Breathing Association and The Columbus Dance Academy. Susan is a native of Ohio, having lived in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and now enjoys traveling to the various College Nannies, Sitters + Tutors offices in Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
I’m married to a wonderful man and we are very proud of our 2 boys (young men). Our eldest, Shaun, just recently moved to San Diego, CA to begin his Photography career and our youngest, Erik, is a Sophomore who is a Honors student and very involved with football and wrestling. We also have a Westie (Riley) and a Green-cheeked conure (Patron)….both males.
I have been in the staffing and recruiting industry for “too many” years to count. It’s always been a welcome challenge along with a rewarding experience. I began my career with Kelly Services (when they were better known as “Kelly Girls”). Throughout my career, it’s been a pleasure to have the opportunity to make a positive impact in someone’s life.
Nikki started teaching SAT test prep in 2006 in Pittsburgh, PA. In 2007, she moved to Florida where she continued her work as a tutor and instructor with several different schools and companies in the Pensacola area. During this time, she continued to work in SAT test prep, and she also started assisting students in grades 1-12 in basic math, algebra, geometry, grammar, writing, reading, history, social studies, study skills, and ACT, ASVAB, and GED test prep. In 2010, Nikki returned to the Pittsburgh area to be near her family, and she continued working in education as a part-time tutor and instructor. Over the past 9 years, she's worked with students in both one-on-one and classroom settings. Nikki's very excited to now be an learning center coordinator and tutor for the South Hills College Nannies and Tutors office in Pittsburgh.
Hello! My name is Jessica Walpole. I am a second year medical student at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and a recent graduate (2015) from Miami University. I graduated with bachelors of science in biochemistry and zoology, and a minor in neuroscience. Needless to say, I love math and science! Through my experience tutoring at the high school and collegiate levels, I have learned how to explain difficult concepts in a variety of ways to suit any student's level of understanding of the material.
Brandon is a graduate of Marion Pleasant High School and has attended Ohio Wesleyan University and Ohio State University. Brandon has received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry from OSU, because he's very skilled in Chemistry and for him, it's fun.
For recreation, Brandon enjoys video gaming, bowling and window shopping, and always the company of his friends. He's still an active reader and enjoys all types of books, psychology in particular, as well as a few good fiction series.
Brandon loves to tutor, because growing up, he never had access to one, and wants to provide the service to students that want and need the support.
