Hi, I'm Nikki! I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a minor in French. I then completed a Master's degree in Mathematics at UC Berkeley...all while being a mom to my boys.

Hi, I'm Nikki! I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a minor in French. I then completed a Master's degree in Mathematics at UC Berkeley...all while being a mom to my boys. In college, I realized I had a passion for teaching and tutoring and helping fellow students better understand the topics we were learning. I pursued this passion and completed a Master's degree in Teaching and further graduate studies in Curriculum, Instruction, and the Science of Learning focusing on trauma-informed education practices to support students with learning challenges and obstacles. I am also currently working on a certificate in Data Science, Analysis, and Visualization focusing on Python, Machine Learning, and other data analysis tools.

I have 12 years of community college teaching experience including tenure at two community colleges and intensive work in partnership with our local high schools to facilitate student readiness and preparation for successful transitions to community college, university, and beyond. I have 18 years of tutoring experience including working with students from middle school, high school, community college, ivy league universities, and adult learners. I have taught extensively in-person and online as well as during mandated remote instruction for COVID-19.

I have taught or tutored the following subjects and areas:
Pre-algebra, algebra (1 and 2), precalculus, college algebra, trigonometry, geometry, single and multi variable calculus, business calculus, statistics, probability, quantitative reasoning and literacy, career and technical math, math success skills, study strategies, and test prep for a variety of exams (SAT, ACT, math placement tests, math certifications for teachers). I also have experience helping students with excel, word, powerpoint, and google applications.

Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson! Hope to hear from you soon.

Knowledge and patient

Despite my daughter doesn’t know what her problems are, Nikki is proactive, well prepared and patient in explaining the concepts to my daughter. Strongly recommend her to anyone who is struggle with Maths problems.

Karen, 1 lesson with Nikki

Patient & Caring Tutor

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER! Out of all the tutors I've had, she has provided me with the best support and now I am finally able to understand Pre-Calculus! She is very patient and takes her time explaining each problem and asks me questions in between to check my understanding. If you are struggling, she will be your greatest resource. I wish I would have found her sooner. I am definitely going to keep having lessons with her!

Great tutor

Nikki taught me calculus and she was very patient and well knowledgeable. I appreciated how she explained how to get the answer and the different formulas and theorems used so that I can achieve the same result on my own. Overall she was very nice, helpful and I would definitely use her again for my calculus class she was great!

Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful tutor

Nikki was very knowledgable about data science. She helped me revise my explanations and analysis on data science related content. She was very patient and provided thoughtful insight throughout the whole process.

Patient, Knowledgeable and Experienced Tutor

You will not go wrong having Nikki as a Math tutor. She is currently tutoring my daughter in AP Calc AB. After the 1st session my daughter is feeling very confident about her Calc class going forward; she also feels she will be prepared for the AP exam. We have plans for more sessions with Nikki so my daughter will stay ahead of the class lecture during the school year. Nikki is very patient and approachable. She has the training to assess what is the student's weak area (in math). Given her strong math qualifications and teaching background, she quickly identifies what is needed. Having the subject knowledge is one thing but being able to teach it to the student is a tremendous gift.

༼;´༎ຶ ۝ ༎ຶ༽so grateful ! ! !

I am eternally grateful to Nikki as I have been struggling through precalc and desperately needed a tutor to help me understand the concepts. Nikki knows their stuff and has prior experience as to explaining how to solve and why we got that answer. Their communication is flawless and when I don't understand a certain topic, she finds a different method of teaching which I think is one of the most important things you need in a tutor. I definitely look forward to having more sessions with them

Amazing Tutor !!!

Currently, I am a student enrolled in Business Calc and am struggling with the course. After just one session with Nikki, I actually have the basic understanding that I needed! We went over a handful of integrals along with some additional problems on my study guide, and I can now say I have a firm understanding of what is being asked, and even how to do them on my own!
