Hello my name is Donika. I obtained a Master of Science from Columbia University in NYC; as research and evidence-based practice are my strengths. I have also completed my pre-requisites of Communication Disorders. I passed the Assessment of Teaching Skills-Written (ATS-W) and Liberal Arts and Science Test (LAST). I am currently working with school-aged children as a Teacher's Assistant. I am a mom of a teenager, whom I continuously obtain tutoring services for as well. I am a firm believer that many students further benefit from one-on-one learning. I also believe that many students may work better with others rather than family members. I am a member of the Parent Association Committee at my child's school. Therefore, I understand the common concerns that parents have and that education and feedback is important to them.
Since working with in the school system Common Core Standards including Reading, Math, Social Studies and Science. Reading skills consist of comprehension, parts of speech (grammar), vocabulary / spelling, writing and pronunciation. Math skills of multiplication / division, fractions, place values, decimals, solving equations and other basic concepts. Social Studies (American or World History), and Science basic concepts of biology and earth science. Having a basic and strong foundations allows a child to succeed and become further independent. Furthermore, I continuously monitor and modify my teaching methods as one method may not work for all. In addition to having great knowledge of the subjects taught, a tutor should also maintain great work ethics as well; including reliability and efficiency. I look forward to working with your children and helping them improve academically. All the best!! Hello my name is Donika.

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.
