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.
