Hi! I'm Anika V. and I am 38 year old female with a passion for helping others achieve their academic goals. I currently homeschool my two children ages 7 and 13. I have a Bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering with a minor in Mathematical Physics. I graduated with honors in May 1998 from North Carolina A & T State University in Greensboro, NC. I have also taught 8th grade science at a school in Winston Salem, NC and, I am currently pursuing a Health Science Master's Degree.

I have received various awards and scholarships throughout my academic career to include Engineering and Physics academic scholarship for academic excellence, Black Engineer of the Year Academic Scholarship - 1993, and Who's Who Among Student in Americas Universities and Colleges - 1996 - 1997 and 1997 - 1998.

I have been tutoring for over 11 years in group and individual settings. My tutoring experience includes North Carolina A & T State University tutoring within the Industrial, Mechanical and Physics Departments; "Introductory to Physics college level laboratory Course; mentoring and tutoring for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America; Volunteer tutoring for the Black Mentors Program; and North Carolina A & T sports students.

Personally, I have a wonderful husband, currently hold a fitness instructor certification and teach Spin, Boot-camp, and various other aerobic classes. I enjoy taking time to assess a students learning style which allows an individually crafted tutoring opportunity.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

As a prior elementary and middle school teacher in Clemmonsville, NC at Clemmonsville Middle School, I taught science and math. I helped at-risk kids complete the necessary criteria to achieve success in these subjects. In addition while in High School as well as college, I tutored elementary age students in math, science, social studies, and reading/writing.

All tutoring methods used are first identified by an initial meeting with the student and the parent and taking the time to understand the outcome of me tutoring the student. I then put together a plan of action and begin by doing a pre-assessment and then implementing the plan.

Fitness

I am a certified Group Fitness Instructor and Indoor Cycling Instructor through FiTour. I will provide certifications upon request.

Phonics

As a homeschooling Mom, I'm well versed in Phonics. I have used several phonics programs and techniques to help my child master phonics to include: Sing, spell, read, and write, hot dots, and Peterson's phonics.

Study Skills

As prior student I felt that to accurately perform study skills is through organization. First deciding what subject you are going to study and to have a 3-ring notebook for the subject with a divider indicating class notes, examples, labs, daily drills (if needed) and a homework tab. I am a very visual person to study so I would color code my notes so that I would understand which section was the background and which one was the actual application of the theory. My goal is the determine each person's study style and then use their strengths to have proper study habits.

Track & Field

As a prior track and field competitor. I have trained for sprints ans well as mid distances running. In addition, during college and after college I have been a volunteer and assistant coach to league and elementary/high school track teams. Should you need additional information, please feel free to contact me.
