Hello, My name is Toke Nicole, I was born and raised in San Francisco
As a mother of four ranging in ages from 6 to 26, and with a degree in psychology focusing on the psychology of learning, I have a deep understanding of different styles of learning. I have continued my education both online and in a classroom and can teach struggling students using methods of contextual memorization, increased vocabulary and multimedia.
I also have experience supporting students studying for SATs, especially the English portion, by teaching test taking skills and breaking down difficult vocabulary into easy-to-remember common applications. My degree is in psychology but I have taken multiple classes in all types of history, anthropology, sociology and biology.
My background as a lover of history and literature gives me the background to take historical events and politics and relate them to students in a way that is easier to remember than addressing single subjects without context. I have learned to develop relationships with young people that allows me to determine what a non-reader would find interesting and instilling a love of reading that will increase their understanding of the world and the vocabulary used in it.
I also graduated high school after my freshman year and I realize that not all students benefit from a strictly academic education. My background in career counseling allows me to focus students on what they need to learn in order to pursue their individual goals for their future endeavors.
For students with learning issues such as ADD, and dyslexia where difficulties with book learning may be crushing their self-esteem, I take great joy in incorporating alternative learning environments using indoor and outdoor activities, multimedia such as historically accurate video games, computer activities and films that can incite a child or teenager's interest in whatever subject they are experiencing difficulty with.
