About Nikka

Hello!

My name is Nikka and I am a certified elementary school teacher. It is my goal to create a learning environment where students build their skills and enjoy learning at the same time. All children are different and I work hard to adapt my style for each student. In this way, I can make sure students are making the most progress quickly!

Communication with students and parents is also very important to me. I want to provide the service that you feel is most important. At the same time, I have extensive knowledge of the common core curriculum, so I can comfortably assess students to determine their strengths and weaknesses. I will work to devise a program that can include homework help and filling in skill gaps.

With more than 10 years experience working in education, I have tutored in all subjects to students Kindergarten through 5th grade. Most recently I served as 4th grade and then 2nd grade classroom teacher. My one on one tutoring and classroom experience have provided me the opportunity to build skills in teaching to all skill sets and all learning styles.

When I work with students, my goal is to help improve their academic skills and school performance in a fun exciting way!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and please let me know if you have any questions and how I can help your child love learning!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am New York and New Jersey Certified in Elementary K-5 for all subjects. Additionally, I taught 4th grade for two and a half years. My experience also includes a three month assignment as a full time 2nd grade teacher. Finally, I tutored students for seven years.

I have experience as a classroom teacher in second and fourth grades teaching all subjects. I also have many years experience tutoring pre-K through middle school math science and ELA.

Phonics

As a certified Elementary School teacher, I have significant experience teaching phonics.

I taught phonics and was part of a pilot program bringing the Headsprout Phonics program to pre-K students.

I worked closely with students and parents to make sure they understood such topics as, note taking, using flash cards, and outlining. Additionally, I helped to implement and execute and study skills in a previous tutoring program.
