The student pilot stated she was performing the second landing of her first supervised solo flight. As she flared for landing she flared too much. The aircraft climbed, lost airspeed, descended, and landed hard. The aircraft bounced and landed on the nose gear several times until it collapsed. After the nose gear collapsed the aircraft slid off the runway and nosed over in the dirt. A small post crash fire occurred in the engine compartment.
