About Nick

I'm a college student, and I specialize in helping high school and college students get through Spanish classes they may not like. If you want to actually learn Spanish while acing your class, too, then that's great; we can do both! But I recognize not everyone loves (or even likes) Spanish; if you just need to know what the "subjunctive verb tense" is so you can keep your GPA up, I'm your guy!

My approach to tutoring is fairly laissez faire. I trust you to know what you want and need to work on-- I'm here to help you, not tell you what to do. Most of my students bring their homework or study guide to me, and I help them understand concepts and/or what their teacher is looking for.

I've been studying Spanish for 10 years, and it's my one of my chief passions in life (along with linguistics, which I tutor as well!). I'm a fluent speaker, AND I've taken enough Spanish classes to know how to get you the A you deserve. I have experience living in a Spanish-only household; tutoring Spanish to high school and college students; taking oral, written, and national Spanish exams, and researching using Spanish-language sources.

I come from a family of English graduates and published writers. I'm the best writer I know in my peer group, and I would describe myself as "adroit" at preparing for vocabulary testing, in English and Spanish. This, combined with my substantial knowledge of Greco-Latin, French, and Germanic etymological roots, permits me to help you find your writing voice in Spanish and/or English.

A little about me: I truly love tutoring, both because I enjoy helping people, and because I always learn something from my students. I am currently studying for a BA in Spanish Linguistics at ASU, at the Barrett Honors College. I also recently completed a semester abroad in Yucat√°n, Mexico for my degree.

I've taken this semester off, so I can tutor with you at ANY time of the week. Let's get you an A!

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.

Sketchup

I specialize in designing objects for 3D printing. I've been using Google Sketchup since high school, where I used it to create a chessboard. Since then I've created files that were 3D printed to make commercial prototypes. I have experience using the program on both PC and Mac.

Spanish

I have over 10 years experience as an A+ Spanish student and have received the Premio de Bronce (Bronze Prize) in the National Spanish Exam. I have personal experience using MySpanishLab and various School Districts' online platforms.
