My name is Nia Malek Stevens, and I've been a tutor and music teacher for over 10 years. I graduated from high school at the age of 13 and completed Bachelor's degrees in Music and English from The College of Idaho by the age of 18. I continued on to Boise State University where I studied education in mathematics, biology, chemistry, and physics and am now obtaining a Masters in Education, Curriculum, and Instruction.
My team and I offer a groundbreaking college admissions test preparatory course that is fully customized and takes place in your home or public place of choice. We have helped high school students raise their ACT scores as much as 5 points in 6 weeks. We have a grasp of common core that is better than most Idaho teachers currently in the classroom. All tutors are either certified teachers with classroom experience or are in their final year of a college degree either in teaching or the subject they are tutoring. Our team includes experienced special education teachers, a certified counsellor, a College of Idaho Heritage Scholar--over three decades of combined experience in education.
We have extensive experience working with special needs such as Asperger's, dyslexia, ACC, brain trauma, AD(H)D and emotional and behavioral challenges, though plenty of our students are gifted as well. I assess all students personally and match them with a tutor best suited to their learning needs and personality, whether it is me or someone on my team. Mr. Warren Stevens, College of Idaho Heritage Scholar, is our primary instructor and coordinator for test prep.
Prodigy Private Instruction is 100% local and we are therefore able to offer professional help at a fraction of the cost of big tutoring franchises. We strive to provide ideal personal instruction by pairing every student with the teacher who suits their needs, learning style, and personality. Every test prep program is customized to the needs of the student, drawn from curriculum provided by both the student and ourselves. While we do not guarantee that students will reach their goal in the number of hours purchased, we will refund the cost of any unused lessons, and future lessons will be prorated to the package price.
We currently offer three packages:
20 hours: $700
32 hours: $1000
48 hours: $1450
All packages include: Tutor Travel, Curriculum, and a practice test every 10 hours of instruction.
For families who cannot pay for a package up front, and would prefer to pay on a lesson by lesson basis, we charge $35/hr + $15 for travel (if you wish the tutoring to take place in your home). Families who schedule for the month and pay by the 10th receive an automatic 10% discount. All prodigy private students are eligible for an ACT or SAT practice test every 10 hours of instruction.

Feel free to call, text, or email me with questions, or to discuss the unique needs of your student. If we don't fit your needs, I can help point you in the right direction. Helping students is what we do. :)
