Featured Review:

## Great knowledge; committed to student's success!

Jessica, 1 lesson with NicholasNicholas assisted with AP Physics concepts and was available on short notice. It was evident early on that he is an effective teacher/tutor with extensive topic knowledge! He quickly assessed the need and provided suggestions on how to make the best use of the time. He followed up after the session with a message providing an additional resource on the topic. Highly recommend this friendly, knowledgeable resource!

Hi, my name is Nick, and I would love to be you or your child's next tutor!

I am a theoretical physics PhD student and instructor at UC Berkeley. I do research in string theory, and I am currently an instructor for introductory physics. I specialize in and develop pedagogy for students without strong physics backgrounds. I have tutored hundreds of students across almost all levels and seen first hand the success of my methods for cultivating problem-solving strategies and deeper...

Mathematica
#### Mathematica

I am an expert in using Mathematica for scientific and mathematical computation. I have been using the software extensively in my research for the last four years.

Spanish

Calculus,
#### Calculus

I have taught AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, college-level multivariable calculus, and complex analysis for over five years. In high school, I received a 5 on the BC exam, and in my research as a physicist I am constantly employing calculus as a tool for solving real world problems.

Physics,
#### Physics

I graduated from Harvey Mudd College, one of the most rigorous STEM colleges in the country, with high distinction and a bachelor's in physics, and I am now a theoretical physics PhD student at UC Berkeley where I do research in quantum gravity and nuclear physics.
My passion for physics and my passion for teaching go hand in hand. Over the last four years, I have tutored high school physics, AP Physics 1-2, AP Physics C (which I self-taught and received 5's in high school), and lower and upper level college courses.

Nicholas has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **2 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Great experience

Nick has helped me learn both Quantum mechanics and Statistical Mechanics. In my time working with Nick he has been very helpful in both learning how to solve the problems and gaining a conceptual understanding of the concepts. Nick has a great ability to break down problems and explain them in simple terms, a key indicator of great teaching and great understanding of the material. Cordial, patient, and thorough, Nick has been a pleasure to work with and I would recommend anyone seeking help with Physics to tutor with Nick.

Lisa, 27 lessons with Nicholas

## Excellent tutor

My daughter is in AP Physics 2. Nicholas has been an excellent tutor for our daughter enabling her to better understand certain concepts. Every tutoring session has led to "A's" on her subsequent tests. We would highly recommend Nicholas.

Barbara, 4 lessons with Nicholas

## Knowledgable, has great ways of explaining complicated ideas

I worked with Nicholas in between a couple of my tests for physics 2 and each time my test grades improved. An incredible option for those who want to not just learn physics, but understand the big ideas that come with it.

Ben, 3 lessons with Nicholas

## 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!

## 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

Nikolas, 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.
