About Nicholas

Hello! My name is Nick and I am an Emory University graduate with a degree in environmental science. Frankly, I love learning, and I spend most of my free time reading books. I believe the pursuit of knowledge to be the greatest pursuit in life and I hope to instill this mindset into each and every student that I mentor. My success is derived not only from teaching the material to students but from also sparking a genuine interest in the material. My greatest strength lies in my ability to garner enthusiasm in students while providing them with tangible real-world applications.

It is my goal to provide the most personalized tutoring experience for each of my students. Each student learns in unique ways. It is my responsibility to discern the learning qualities of each individual and to leverage these qualities to help students realize their full potential.

I am a tutor by profession with many years of experience under my belt. I specialize in SAT and ACT subjects, Common Core math, science, and political science and government.

I am available for tutoring every day from 9 am to 10 pm and can travel to students or meet them in a public place. I offer lesson packages at a discount so contact me for more details!

I look forward to helping you!

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.

I currently tutor elementary school kids at a tutoring center in private and group sessions. I am thus familiar with the math, reading, and writing curricula. My ability to simplify subject material into fun, relatable lessons is the secret to my success.
