My name is Nikunj (Nick). I have a BA in biology & general science, 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 eleven years now. During my time as an undergraduate and graduate student at NYU, I spent most of my time educating others. Additionally, I obtained teaching credentials and science education certification from Fordham University and City College.
Subjects I am apt to teach include biology, AP biology, physics, chemistry, 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.

Better late than never, been so busy that I didn't get a chance to write a review. Nikunj replied right away to our request and is very accommodating with our schedule. He was a big help to my daughter in Chemistry. His methodology was understandable to her and eventually she managed well with his help.
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.
I received a 100 on the Regents exam in high school, and I have previous experience teaching and tutoring the content matter.
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.
I have ample SAT math materials, including diagnostics practice tests, and content & topic specific materials, along with 100 of the most important concepts, and 20 tactics/strategies that can be consistently employed to answer each question.
