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.

Nikia is wonderful, she really went the extra mile

Nikia is wonderful, she really went the extra mile to make sure my daughter understood the geometry concepts they worked on and gave us ideas for practice work.

Pamela, 4 lessons with Nikia

Encouragement

As always Ms. Nikia makes my son feel truly confident in his abilities to conquer this subject. She continuously encourage him to believe in himself and not to second guess his answers because most of the time he's on the right track.

Listens to the Student

My daughter is being tutored by Nikia in Algebra. After the first session my daughter felt more confident and seemed excited learning Algebra and that she now has someone to help her and answer her questions 1:1. My daughter is thrilled to meet with Nikia weekly to gain more self-confidence and more knowledge to help her in her Algebra/Math lessons. Nikia is a teacher who listens to the student and understands why and what they need help in, she understands that everyone learns differently and we cannot all learn the same as our neighbors.

Tricia, 3 lessons with Nikia

Great Pre-Calculus Tutor

She got me to feel confident in my algebra skills while also breaking down all of the problems so that I took it step by step and didn't get overwhelmed. Ended up getting a 95 on my final she did a great job!

Sofia, 7 lessons with Nikia

Great tutor!

My son seem to be able to follow her instructions with ease early on in the first session. Right away, it seems like her style of teaching makes for a great match with my son.
