About Niketa

I have a PhD in Mathematics from Colorado State University in 2013. I have 5+ years experience teaching and tutoring undergraduate level math courses. I am available to tutor in a variety of math courses for grades 6 and up and also college level courses including algebra, calculus, discrete math, math for social sciences, probability and statistics. I can also help with SAT test preparation for math levels 1 and 2.

I am passionate about teaching and have a never-give-up attitude. My experience is that students do not like math when they do not understand the underlying base concepts. Getting them to see and understand these concepts is my specialty. I persevere along with the student and aim to make math fun for everyone.

Students are encouraged to contact me for immediate scheduling and flexible hours.

Great Math tutor.

I hired Niketa to help my 16-year old daughter with Calculus AP class and I am very glad I did it. Niketa is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor. She created a strong student-tutor relationship. Niketa taught my daughter not only Math, but how to use her knowledge so she doesn't have to panic during the test when she thinks she doesn't know how to solve the problem. I observe the increased conf
