About Nikki

Many students feel frustrated because they study and study, but can't seem to get the grades they want. If that's you, I can help you! I am teacher and I know what teachers are looking for (and how they write their exams). But don't let that intimidate you! My students always say I'm very approachable. In fact, my favorite part of teaching/tutoring has always been helping students who are struggling.

I have a Masters degree in Biology and I've been teaching courses (Anatomy, Anatomy/Physiology I&II) and labs (Anatomy, Physiology and General Bio) at the community college level for about 7 years. I started tutoring in high school, continued through college, and am now looking to get back into it while I take a break from teaching to stay at home with my babies. While in college, I also ran classes for undergraduates that were struggling in general biology. It was my experience doing these classes that made me realize I wanted to teach!

One of the benefits of using me as a tutor is that I have worked in many campuses around San Diego. As a result, I have PICTURES OF ANATOMICAL MODELS from several campuses to help you with your lab grades. In addition, I have HISTOLOGY IMAGES (slides) from most of the campuses as well. If microscope slides are killing you in Anatomy, I can help you.

I would love to help you out.

Please feel free to contact me with any further questions or if would like to schedule a tutoring session.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anatomy

I have an MS in Biology and I teach Anatomy as an adjunct instructor at a community college. I have also taught Anatomy I and II. In 2009 I received the "Outstanding Graduate TA" award which was selected by the Anatomy students.

Physiology

I have my MS in Biology from San Diego State University. My emphasis was in Molecular and Cellular Biology and my research focus was on an enzyme cascade triggered in the heart after ischemic damage (like a heart attack). As an undergraduate student I loved Anatomy and Physiology and tutored my fellow students. As a graduate student I worked as a TA and decided that teaching is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

After Graduating in 2009, I began teaching Anatomy and Physiology courses at the Community College and University level. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching these classes and look forward to continuing to do so for many years.

Enthusiasm Abounds!

At the risk of sounding trite, my only regret with Nikki is THAT I DIDN'T CALL HER SOONER! It's true! I'm just getting back into the Academic game and taking Anatomy while working, and raising a family was not easy. NIkki understood my situation and really helped me to organize my study sessions. She gave me study tips that I can keep using throughout all of my classes. She is super enthusiasti
