About Nikka

I am a certified teacher (EC-4). I have had experience in the classroom as well as working with students one-on-one. I am comfortable doing group or one-on-one tutoring. I also have experience working with special needs students.
I began my teaching experience working as a classroom teacher in a kindergarten classroom. We were required to provide the students with additional tutoring services every Tuesday if they wished to attend. Upon completion of my traditional experience I was brought on as a floater. I was required to break down the students into groups based on their academic levels. I was in charge of finding the best practices and creating my own ways to help them achieve success.
I was also an in-home therapist for special needs students. I worked with children from pre-school to fifth grade. I was in charge of targeting both mental, social, and physical skills. We would work on different techniques on how to master these skills and on to new ones.
I am currently a first grade teacher with Plano ISD.

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.

Autism

I have worked directly with clients with Autism in both home and clinic settings using ABA strategies.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently a first grade teacher. I have a teaching certificate (k-6) along with an ESL certification.

Study Skills

Not only do I teach study skills to my class everyday, I was also an AVID tutor before I began teaching. AVID focuses on organizational and study skills.
