About Nicholas

My name is Nick, and I have always loved teaching. I started at a young age working with my parents who were outreach and museum educators. I have followed in their footsteps and now work as an educator at a museum in central Arkansas. I've been an educator for almost 4 years and love making learning fun, exciting and hands on. I've also taken college courses on teaching math and science to elementary school-aged children.
I enjoy teaching classes, and engaging students, but I take a lot more gratification out of the one-on-one interaction and really helping a student achieve and even surpass their goals. My teaching style would definitely be considered a more hands-on and engaging approach. If students aren't having fun, they aren't learning. I try to help them understand concepts and fundamentals rather than just have them memorize answers that they will forget in a weeks time.
I was a biology major in college with a studio art minor. I have always enjoyed these two subjects. I am trilingual, English, German, Latin. I am also fascinated by mathematics, especially geometry.

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.

Botany

I studied botany as a subset of my pre-ap and ap biology courses in high school. I have taken a full college level botany course, along with field ecology which had a heavy botany emphasis because plants were easier to directly observe in nature. I have also worked with state agencies to help organize herbarium specimens and monitor invasive plant species in natural areas.

Zoology

I have a BA in biology and was a Lab Tech for the Zoology lab for 2 years, and often held study sessions for the students taking the lab. I took many other courses in vertebrate anatomy, and ecology. I worked in a Zoo for 3 years.
