About Nikia

I am a secondary mathematics teacher with an advanced professional teaching certificate and six years of experience. I also have eleven years of tutoring experience. As an undergraduate student, I took on tutoring as a part time job and I have loved tutoring ever since. It brings me joy to share my knowledge with students and to experience the "ah ha!" moments with them as concepts begin to make sense.

My specialty is in tutoring various levels of mathematics. Whether we are working on basic math or differentiating functions, my goals are to ease each student into the content and challenge them all while minimizing any possible anxiety. My priority in each session is to ensure the student's success. Prior to meeting with each student, I like to gather information about strengths, weaknesses and goals for the purpose of maximizing time during each session. I am attentive, patient, and will work through each problem until the student feels comfortable and confident enough to work independently.

Tutoring is my passion and I look forward to helping you reach your goals.

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.

Finite Math

Finite mathematics covers linear models, systems of linear equations, linear programming, sets and counting, probability, descriptive statistics, and the mathematics of finance. I have a very strong algebra background. Both of my degrees contain courses in specifically in linear algebra, probability and statistics.

Logic

Logic is the basis of all pure math courses for which I have a bachelors degree in. I also have 18+ master's credits in pure mathematics courses.

Praxis

I am a certified MD mathematics teacher. I have passed the Praxis 1 math exam. I have also passed the Praxis II mathematics content exam.

Prealgebra

I have degrees in both mathematics and secondary mathematics education. I also hold an MD teaching certificate for secondary mathematics.
