I have been tutoring for almost 5 years now including as a freelance tutor and as a professional tutor for my college's Upward Bound program. I am a trained teacher and tutor for high schoolers, and I have cultivated a conversational and individualized teaching style.

I also do research in quantum gravity/string theory and nuclear physics, feel free to ask me about it!

Knowledgeable and gifted teacher

Nicholas blows my mind every single lesson - I leave my lesson with a deeper understanding of physics and a valuable perspective. We go through all the questions I have thoroughly. Thank you so much!

Michelle, 4 lessons with Nicholas

Knows his stuff!

Nick is a great tutor!!! I am currently studying complex analysis as apart of an electrical engineering class which covers a handful of different high-level math concepts. While my teacher left me confused, Nick was awesome at breaking down the material and helping me with practice problems for my upcoming exam. Highly recommend!

Lauryn, 2 lessons with Nicholas

Physics/calc tutor

excellent!!! He explained very detailed and easy to understand Also friendly and professional. Def I will contact Nicholas again. Very lucky I was able to come accross him

Julie, 1 lesson with Nicholas

Patient, knowledgable and excellent communicator

I am the parent, not the person who took the lesson. Nicholas is a very good communicator and my son has told me that he is very easy to work with. My son feels a lit better about physics and now feels that the issues he was having will soon be a thing of the past. I am sure that nicholas had complete mastery of physic but he strong point is his ability to communicate in a relaxed, confident manner that puts people at ease.

Steve, 4 lessons with Nicholas

Excellent tutor

Nicholas was really helpful helping me with Calculus. Aside from general help, he gave me problem solving strategies and asked me conceptual questions about the problems to clarify that I fully understood the task at hand. I will certainly call upon him again for his help and insight.

Ed, 2 lessons with Nicholas

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Nicholas helped me review for a final exam in physics. His explanations were simple and clear. He knew the material well and was able to reach it to me through examples I could understand.

Mary, 1 lesson with Nicholas

Great teacher

My questions were all answered with thorough explanations and he made sure I understood the question before moving on. Very helpful!

Carolin, 1 lesson with Nicholas

Extremely Knowledgable

Did a great job helping me through studying for my Differential Equations Final exam. Very knowledgable and helped break down concepts that I was previously confused about.

Tee, 1 lesson with Nicholas

Excellent and passionate tutor!

Nicholas is helping me a lot for my Quantum physics class, he gives great insight to the material and is always available for a lesson. Doing problems with him truly helps me understand the course better.
