About Nikki

Hello. My name is Nikki. I attended Prairie View A & M University where I received my Bachelor's degree in Biology, and a minor in Chemistry. After college, I went into the workforce working as a scientist in the food industry. After working a few years, I then decided to pursue my Master's in Biology at Chatham University.

My experience in tutoring has spanned from my high school years into my college years and into my personal life. I have tutored people in most subjects from SAT (math and verbal prep) to children just learning their alphabets and spatial recognition. I am also very knowledgeable on the subject of the human body, from years of studying the MCAT. I am a tutor who takes teaching seriously. I want to make the best out of the time spent with my students. I am interested in bringing out the best in the student, first by finding out how the student learns best, then by teaching the student in that manner (verbal, visual, etc.)

I have a natural ability to work through problems and love explaining how I derive the answer.

2016 Accomplishments:
It is only March and seven of my ASVAB students have passed the actual ASVAB test, so they could enlist in their desired branch of the military.

One student's score differed so much from his original score that he had to take the test twice to prove that he did not cheat the second time around!

2015 Accomplishments:

Tutoring ASVAB Students

2014 Accomplishments

ASVAB Students
One student's scores on practice ASVAB jumped from below passing (under 35) to
a 54 (above passing) after only 4 hours of tutoring in total.

Another student initially scored under a 20 on practice ASVAB, and their score after
two months of tutoring has jumped to an 85.

High School Students
Will update after I receive results.

Middle School Students (CRCT and classes in general)
Student passed all CRCT scores after tutoring.

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.

ASVAB

Took the actual test when I considered joining the military. Made a 92 or 93 on the actual test. I have test scores to prove it.

Biology

I have an undergraduate degree in this subject. I do still study the topics to keep the information fresh in my head.

By far the Best tutor I've had!!

Having a tutor that's very patient and flexible is something that I've always looked for especially in math which isn't my strongest subject. She finds your weak spots in your subjects and helps you adjust and finds topics to relate to. Sending me work every other day kept me on my toes knowing i can lose focus very quickly. Over this journey I've learned alot, even though I have yet to take my te
