About Nicholas

As a lifelong learner, I just can't get enough of learning new things and I want you to also experience the joys of learning and the empowerment it can bring. As an accomplished student in many fields, I know what it takes to break down complex topics into bite-sized chunks that anyone can understand. I am currently a Biomedical Engineering major with a minor in Chemistry, Biology, and Nanotechnology at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. I have also been an active musician for many years singing (15 years) and playing piano (15 years) and bass guitar (7 years) for churches and for the Inspirational Singers (a Black Gospel group) at the University of Arkansas. I also play clarinet and was 1st chair for 4 years in a row. I have been in martial arts for almost 15 years and had the opportunity to teach students both young and old (ages 5-60) for 5 years as an assistant instructor and as the head instructor for 1 year. I also taught students with varying levels of autism and it was incredibly rewarding to see them build their confidence.

One of my goals is to not only help you improve in the subjects you need help in, but also to help broaden your love of inquiry and learning so you can propel yourself to heights far beyond where I could get you by myself. I will challenge you but at the same time make sure the goals we set for you are never out of reach. I am usually available any day from 8am to 8pm except for Sundays and am willing to travel to students or give online lessons. If you are taking a class with a syllabus and/or schedule, I require that you submit a copy (or copies if the class has both) to me as well as the reading material for the class so I can make sure I am prepared to teach you. The first session will always include time for me to ask you about your goals for our lessons as well as to get to know you a little better. For math courses, I am willing to personally grade some of your assignments depending on my workload each week. This will be on a case by case basis and I will not provide you the answers. I will only tell you which questions are incorrect and possibly provide some insight into why the answer you found is wrong.

Currently, my base rate is $50/hour for in person lessons and $40/hour for online lessons. I offer discounts for groups and extremely long sessions and even offer bonuses when you refer other students to me. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. I can't wait to help you reach your academic and personal goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

As with all of the ACT sections, time management is of utmost importance; however, without a firm grasp of the basic rules of the English language, no amount of time management will help anyone. I can help find the holes in your English skills and help you build a tailored approach to conquer the problems you have.

ACT Reading

I made a 33 on the ACT three times in a row. My highest scores for each section were 34 for English, 31 for Math, 36 for Reading, and 35 for Science. My tutoring will involve both general test taking tips as well as specific topics that are tested on the ACT. Most importantly, the student will be required to take several practice tests to assess where they currently are.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is a foundational class for all higher level math. Without it, trigonometry, calculus, and differential equations become impossible. By taking the time to understand the concepts within algebra 2, you will set yourself up for not only the classes I mentioned, but for wonderful practical applications in science, engineering, and business. We will go over things like radicals, functions, trigonometric functions, and conic sections.

Calculus

I got a 5 on the AP BC Calc test and I can help you achieve that as well. It may take a little extra time on your part, but think of it this way: invest a little time now and you won't have to invest an arm and leg in college.

Elementary Math

Teaching children is all about helping them find connections with things they already know. For math, this is relatively easy. Every child can tell when they're getting less of the cake than their brother or sister, or when their best friend gets more cookies than they do. However, they may not be able to describe exactly what the difference is, and that is where I come in. I can help give them a deeper understanding of what they already know and more importantly, we'll have fun doing it.

Martial Arts

I have been a Martial Artist for more than 15 years. I am a 3rd Degree Black Belt in Seidokaikan Karate and have cross-trained in Muay Thai, Brazilian Jujitsu, and Kickboxing. I taught as an Assistant Instructor for 5 years before being promoted to interim Head Instructor for a year before I moved to go to college. I love all martial arts and would love to share my passion to whomever would like to learn. During my time as a teacher, I taught students ranging in ages from 5-60. I am very comfortable with teaching large groups and am willing to give special group rates.

Piano

I am a classically trained pianist with more than a decade of experience. I also have a background in a jazz/blues and church music. From Bach to Jazz, whether you want to learn to read music for the first time or would like to polish your chops, I can help you get there. I'm not promising this will be easy, but I am promising that you will thank yourself for learning to speak the beautiful and timeless language of music.

Proofreading

Proofreading is an extremely rewarding process because once you learn how to do it, you can make not only your own writing better, but enhance the writing of those around you. Grammar and Content are the two main parts that need to be addressed to create a true representation of what you want to convey. With only a little effort here and there, your writing can and will make leaps and bounds towards maturity.

Reading

Whether you're just learning to read or need help increasing your reading proficiency, I can help. With my experience in Greek, Latin, and Phonics, I can get you to the level you're shooting for. It'll take some practice, but the time you put in will pay you back almost immediately with a newfound ability and enjoyment of reading.
