About this tutor

My name is Nikia Wingard originally from Houston, Texas. I have a passion for education. Currently I am an 8th Grade Level Administrator English Language Arts/ Reading TeachersFor International Leadership of Texas-Windmill Lakes. I was promoted to a higher grade level 9th Grade Level Administrator English I Teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. I have been teaching for 4 years and within my 3 years I was awarded Teacher of the Year for 2017-2018  and this year 2020-2021 school year at International Leadership of Texas-Windmill Lakes. 

Working with kids for so many years, I have come to understand that children come into the world with a blank slate. The experiences, environment, adults, as well as surroundings are what shape them into who they become. I feel our responsibility as parents and teachers is to provide children with the best possible education, knowledge, and choices so they are able to grow to their maximum potential. I believe that children should be given the ability to become independent individuals by setting limits with positive discipline, praise, and encouragement. I enjoy being surrounded by children because of their imagination, innocence, and creativity.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When working with a prospect, the most important aspect of the entire process is building a rapport. At this point in time, students have potentially struggled with various topics, so the importance of instilling confidence in them before any tutoring begins is essential to their success. Nevertheless, prior to scheduling sessions, I like to meet with the student and/or parent(s). I work hand in hand to build their specialized plan of action. Students create a detailed description of their current situation and their desired results. Next, I come up with a set of goals and how to implement the plan of action appropriately in order to accomplish said results. This plan depends on the immediate needs of the student, but many plans include some sort of accommodation to pre and post-session communication in order to track progress.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am currently a 9th grade English I Teacher. I have worked as a 6-7th ELA/Reading for years. I have helped student pass the State Texas Assessment Academic Readiness Test.
