About Nikeya

I am an alumnus of Johns Hopkins University, graduating in 2010 with a Bachelor's of Arts degree in Biology and a minor in Spanish. I recently graduated from Drexel University with a Master's of Science degree in Human Nutrition. My knowledge is extensive in the sciences, Spanish language, and Elementary English and Mathematics. For the biological sciences, I am able to tutor Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Nutrition. I am also ESL certified and have experience as an ESL instructor to Hispanic immigrants, making use of Spanish language when necessary for direct translations.

I am very eager to work with students who are motivated and ready to learn. I let the students' interests be my guide when creating a plan for the tutoring session because it is important that they are engaged. I like to use different activities and models that are practical to the subject and everyday life.

Having had prior teaching experience in a Montessori school, I understand the importance of guided learning, in which my students would engage in hands-on activities that enhance their social, cognitive, motor, and other developmental skills while I, along with the Head Teacher of the classroom “guided” them. The students were able to learn and progress at their own pace, but were also given individual attention if necessary. My other experience working with children involves being a tutor in Elementary English and Mathematics in New York and Philadelphia.

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.

Anatomy

I am currently a Masters of Science student in Human Nutrition at Drexel University and recently took and excelled in Anatomy and Physiology I and II this past year. My tutoring style will focus on your learning needs and strengths to best give you a successful outcome in the course.

Biology

I graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a Bachelor's degree in Biology and am very competent in the subject.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor Elementary (K-6th) subjects, particularly, Reading, Writing, and Math. Being a college graduate and currently a graduate student, my knowledge of elementary school subjects is efficient. I have experience tutoring third grade English, Reading, and Mathematics at Champion Learning Center. I worked one on one with my students and took into account their learning styles as being auditory, visual, or tactile when instructing.

Elementary Math

I have experience tutoring third grade Mathematics through the Champion Learning Center. I worked one on one with my students and took into account their learning styles as well as their personal interests and strengths when instructing.

Nutrition

I have a Master's of Science in Human Nutrition from Drexel University and have extensive knowledge about the subject. I have worked for Eat.Right.Now. on providing nutrition education in schools, and am currently educating my students as an Assistant teacher on healthy foods and developing healthy eating habits on a daily basis. I am knowledgeable about food composition, macro and micronutrients, and with a bachelor's in biology, the biological processes that take place with food breakdown.

Spanish

I would love to help your son improve his grades in Spanish! I have studied the Spanish language since the 4th grade and am literate in reading, writing, and speaking. I minored in Spanish while an undergraduate at Johns Hopkins and studied abroad in Spain for the summer while attending. I will make sure to take into account your son's learning style and needs to utilize the best approach in helping him learn the language. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
