As a UC Irvine graduate with a B.Sc in Neurobiology, I understand from firsthand experience how difficult science classes can be without a proper understanding of the concepts. I also know that with that understanding, science can be easier than you imagined (and fun!). Each student is different, which is why I cater to each student's weaknesses while emphasizing their strengths. By emphasizing a greater understanding of the subject over rote memorization, the student and I work together to succeed in the class. Why spend the time and agony learning the hard way when you could be learning the right way?

Very patient and thorough, very knowledgeable on subject matter. — My daughter had fallen considerably behind in her HS Statistics class due to absences, and she was not receiving much help from the instructor to get back on track. In the course of one session, Nelson turned her around and restored her confidence in the material.
