About Nick

Ever since my high school study groups at the local coffee shop back in Minnesota I've enjoyed helping others understand and enjoy mathematics. There is a joy that comes from understanding and that feeling is the most important aspect of any kind of learning.

I am most comfortable providing homework help, lesson supplements, and focused study plans tailored to the student's needs.


I am in my fifth year in the PhD program in Applied Mathematics. Each year of my program I've taught at least two semester long classes, ranging from trigonometry to calculus; last semester I also taught two sections at Pima Community College. I typically spend several hours a week as a walk-in tutor for all levels of calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and statistics.

I will usually be available every day AM and PM, and am happy to meet at a library, coffee shop, or in the student's home.

I look forward to helping you advance your mathematics learning.

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.

Differential Equations

I am a PhD student in applied mathematics and have taken multiple courses on differential equations at the undergraduate and graduate level. These courses have covered numerical and analytic solutions.

My research consists of studying systems of nonlinear equations so I work with and think about differential equations daily.

MATLAB

I've been using MATLAB for classes and research for the last eight years. I've used it mainly for modeling differential equations, but have also done a fair bit of linear algebra and graph algorithms. I am very comfortable with writing scripts, functions, and making the documentation work for me. I've taught at least two semester long classes, ranging from trigonometry to calculus.

Outstanding! — Nick has an unbelievably thorough and thoughtful teaching style which allows him to convey complicated subject matter in a patient, intuitive fashion. He has an outstanding command of the material and is willing to spend as much time as necessary to ensure you get it as well. I can't recommend him more highly! ...
