About Nikole

Hello! I am Nikole D., a mother of 2 young children and a 4th grade teacher. I am an avid runner, and love the weather! I enjoy mentoring and helping others to better understand the subject matter which proves difficult to grasp. I can recall memories of tutoring fellow classmates in college on topics like meteorology, math, and physics. I discovered that I have personality traits which most people connected with: patience, caring, understanding, and intelligence. Most importantly, I make the learning experience meaningful. I truly enjoy helping others in any and all situations. My philosophy is to learn by doing. See it, Do it, and Remember it! I recently completed my Master's degree and have my multiple subjects teaching credential. In my free time, I have been tutoring students ranging from pre-kindergarten to 8th grade in reading, writing, and math.

I thoroughly enjoy the experiences I have while teaching and tutoring my students. That is why I am extending my services beyond my own classroom. I want to use my experience and skills that I have gained through teaching kindergarten and 4th grade, and tutoring various age-groups to help students reach their maximum learning potential.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my Multiple Subjects (K-8th) credential, and have taught kinder and 4th grade. I also have experience tutoring students in the elementary level, specifically in reading and writing skills, reading comprehension, including phonological awareness development (phonics), and teaching learning strategies. I use a balanced approach to my instruction/tutoring methods, which consists of explicit teaching and child-centered activities. I emphasis the need for my students to maintain motivation, positive self-esteem, and enjoyment in their own learning.

Elementary Math

I have my Multiple Subjects (K-8th) credential, and have taught kinder and 4th grade. I have completed a Math and Science course to help teach elementary-middle school students in these academic areas. I also have experience tutoring students in elementary level reading and writing skills, reading comprehension, including phonological awareness development (phonics), and study skills. I emphasize the need for my students/tutees to maintain motivation, positive self-esteem, and enjoyment in their own learning.

Phonics

I have my Multiple Subjects (K-8th) credential, and have taught kinder and 4th grade. My teaching credential coursework focused on learning about and implementing my knowledge of reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. I have conducted phonemic awareness assessments (DIBELS) to Kindergarten, 1st, and 4th grade students. I have seen the benefits of consistent exposure and practice of English phonics skills which aid emerging or struggling readers in the classroom.

Study Skills

I am great with organizing content for various subjects, which helps me to take succinct notes in order to study for tests, and to write well articulated papers. I can teach study skills, time management skills, and organization skills of academic work to help maximize learning potential. Additionally, I taught 4 students with specific learning disabilities that affected their ability to stay organized, memory retention, and attention spans. I worked very closely with the Special Education teacher to learn and utilize important strategies to aid students with difficulties in using study skills and staying on track with academic progress.
