Nikki is the owner and founder of Skillabration. She has experience teaching Spanish and English as a Second Language (ESL). She worked as a public school teacher from 2005-2016 teaching in a variety of subjects ranging from high school Spanish I, II, and III, and middle school dual language.


She decided to start teaching online in 2016 to establish more freedom and creativity in her classroom. She started as an online ESL teacher at VIPKID and iTutorGroup from 2016-2020, and shifted to teaching Spanish at Outschool in 2021. She offers both group classes of up to 10 students and 1-on-1 tutoring sessions. Students say she is patient and engaging, and she breaks down information in a comprehensible way.

She is able to keep my son engaged with fun and interactive activities and still learn the language at the same time. Highly recommend Ms. Nikki and her Spanish class!


Cherry Man Ching Yeung is from Hong Kong. She has a dual Bachelor’s degree in English Language and Education. She has a 120-hour TEFL certification. Teaching is her passion. She has been teaching Chinese, ESL and other subjects online, in schools, in her center, and at students’ homes for 20 years.

She offers children and teenagers group classes and 1-on-1 tutoring sessions. Her favorite and happiest times have been spent with students. They explore language with virtual “trips” to supermarkets, parks, museums and convenience stores.

What students love about her class is that it is fun and engaging, so she uses many props such as toys, photos, flashcards, artwork and puppets. Also, students say she is patient and caring. She loves creating stories, dancing, singing, doing simple science experiments, listening to students and having fun conversations with them. She will take you on the wondrous journey of learning. She is looking forward to seeing you in her class.
