My name is Nikunj (Nick). I have a BA in biology and an MS in biology from New York University. I have been involved in the education field and have been teaching young adults for over ten years now. During my time as an undergraduate and graduate student at NYU, I spent most of my time educating others.

Subjects I am apt to teach include biology, AP biology, Earth science, physical science, pre-algebra, algebra I, geometry, trigonometry, and algebra II. Additionally, I am a certified yoga teacher, with ample experience in health, nutrition, and breath work.

I have always had an inclination for the education of others. As far back as I can remember, I never turn down the opportunity to explain something when people do not understand, especially when it comes to math and science. I have an intuitive ability to quickly recognize students’ disconnects, and provide support to make those connections for students. To me, teaching fulfills a higher purpose. Knowing that the future leaders of this world will face many coming challenges, teenagers and young adults must immediately be guided in such a way that will prepare them for the coming challenges that humanity faces.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Regents

I prepared students for the NYS Regents examinations in Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry, and in Earth Science, Living Environment, Chemistry, and Physics. Having been a NYS educator my whole life, and having attended public schools in NYS, I am very familiar with the NYS Regents format, content, and overall strategies in preparing students for the math and sciences.

SAT Math

Ample SAT math materials, including diagnostics and practice tests, along with a few very popular work books. I teach a SAT math prep. Class on Saturday mornings.
