About Nicki


Bio

Hi there! I'm Nicki, and I specialize in tutoring biology and chemistry. I've been a science tutor for many years, for students of all ages and levels, and I love what I do! I graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Physiology and Neuroscience with a minor in French Literature from UCSD. I began tutoring while I was in college, and I've helped many students ever since to consistently succeed in their courses and often improve their work by many letter grades. I know what it's...

Hi there! I'm Nicki, and I specialize in tutoring biology and chemistry. I've been a science tutor for many years, for students of all ages and levels, and I love what I do! I graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Physiology and Neuroscience with a minor in French Literature from UCSD. I began tutoring while I was in college, and I've helped many students ever since to consistently succeed in their courses and often improve their work by many letter grades. I know what it's like to feel like a topic or a course is difficult, and how frustrating that can be, so as a tutor I want to share the valuable skills that I have learned in college and in the research labs I have worked in to help students reach their goals!

I have been a tutor for AP Biology, AP Chemistry, college biology and college chemistry courses, as well as a science tutor for children since 2018. My students have all consistently shown significant improvement, with the last group of AP Biology students I taught all receiving an A in their second semester. I've received great feedback from my students, and many of them still keep in touch with me today. Our tutoring sessions always focus on the students' goals, and work towards breaking down difficult concepts and making science accessible and interesting!

If you would like to learn more, have any questions, or would like to schedule a lesson, please reach out! I always reply quickly so that you're never waiting for a response, and I have a flexible schedule – I will always work to make our sessions work for you! I aim to create tutoring sessions that help you achieve your goals in the ways that work best for you. If you would like to talk more, don't hesitate to shoot me a message. I look forward to hearing from you!

I have been a tutor for AP Biology and college biology courses since 2018. My students have all consistently shown significant improvement, with the last group of AP Biology students I taught all receiving an A in their second semester. As a graduate from UCSD with a degree in Physiology & Neuroscience, I have extensive knowledge of many topics in biology as well as experience tutoring different biology courses. I have also worked in biology labs, particularly focusing on neuroscience, so I'm able to bring real-life examples and background to help make lessons engaging and effective! My students have all consistently improved in their coursework and many have come to love biology even if they found it challenging initially. I aim to make tutoring accessible and easy to understand, and focus on clearly and patiently explaining topics in whatever way works best for you!

Chemistry

I have been a tutor for AP Chemistry and college chemistry courses since 2018, and I love what I do! As a tutor, I focus on explaining concepts clearly and patiently, and work to use whatever learning style works best for you. As a graduate from UCSD with a degree in Physiology & Neuroscience, I have taken many university chemistry courses that give me a strong background of the topic, and also an understanding of what it's like to be in a college level chemistry course. I have also worked as a researcher in an organic chemistry/biochemistry lab, so I have extensive knowledge and real-world experience of chemistry, which helps me make lessons informed and engaging! My students have all consistently shown significant improvement in their courses, with some improving multiple letter grades, and many have come to love chemistry even if they found it challenging initially!

Genetics,

Genetics

As a graduate from UCSD with a B.S. in Physiology and Neuroscience, I have a significant amount of knowledge on genetics from the multiple courses I have taken on it. I have taken courses on classical genetics, prokaryotic genetics, and eukaryotic genetics. I have been tutoring genetics for close to two years, and I've come up unique and effective ways to explain difficult genetics concepts, from mapping genes on chromosomes to understanding the molecular basis of crossing over. As a tutor, I aim to explain these concepts in ways that are not only easy to grasp, but that allow the student to truly understand them so that they can apply them on their own in their homework, on their exams, and even in their future careers.

Outstanding teacher!

Nicki is definitely one of if not the best chem tutors out there. She’s been very patient with me throughout the semester and the way she explains concepts is magnificent. I recommend her to anyone needing further help with this type of material.

Alex, 16 lessons with Nicki

Great

She explained everything so well and clearly. I feel like I understand the concepts a lot better than before !

Sofia, 2 lessons with Nicki

Excellent totur

Nicki is an excellent chemistry tutor! She is super nice, patient, smart, knowledgeable, experienced and to the point. She goes over everything you want to learn throughly and answers all questions you have in details. I appreciate her help and definitely recommend her.

Review for Nicki

I was really struggling with my college chemistry class at the beginning of the semester and I knew if I didn’t get help there was no way I was going to pass the class. I had a virtual lesson with Nicki usually once a week, twice if I needed more help and she was always available and made time to help me. Nicki was so patient, was able to break down and explain concepts so that I could understand them, and overall a phenomenal teacher. I ended up getting an A on every test I took after studying with her consistently and ended the class with a 98%. I highly recommend Nicki I could not have passed this class without her help.

Emily, 5 lessons with Nicki

Super knowledgeable and friendly

Nicki helped me with my chemistry homework and undertaking concepts that i had a hard time with and she was super helpful and patient with me! I would definitely recommend her if you need help understanding material better!!!

Hope, 2 lessons with Nicki
