Tutor Information


I have a passion for learning that I have applied throughout my life and academic career. In high school I graduated towards English, History, Social Studies, and Debate. I took eight Advanced Placement Tests, including one I self-studied for, and achieved fours and fives on all of them. I am ready to help students learn the material for these high-level classes and share strategies that will help them succeed on their end of year exams. At the university level, I majored in Global Politics as part of the Global Studies program at Carleton University. There, I studied not only subjects like politics, government, and statistics, but took courses in a wide variety of areas from Ethnography and Anthropology to Global Literature.

Work Experience

Varsity Tutors

October 2023 - present
Independent Contractor
I tutor students mostly in the high school and college range. The most common subjects I tutor in are U.S Government, Language and Literature for Advanced Placement. I have also helped with technical and essay writing as well. I work as an independent contractor, so I am responsible for preparing my own materials and arranging sessions with students.

Nikita has a talent for teaching and the ability to take students "out of the box" if they struggle with the topic. A very patient and calm approach, trying to find an individual approach every time. And every time succeded! Highly recommended.

Thanks to you, I was able to get a 92 on my ISU, which is worth 15% of my grade!! I also just did a grade conference with my teacher about my grade book and my final mark going into the exam, I went from an 81 at midterm to an 88 going into the exam!!! I was so happy to hear the news and I wanted to thank the hell out of you because you and this program helped me so so much and I am forever grateful. My writing skills and essay structuring skills have surpassed what I thought they could ever be so thank you again for everything!!!
