About Nathan

Having come from MIT, I have an extensive background in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields. I graduated with a B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering with a minor in Management and a humanities concentration in Spanish. I've never considered myself a science or math person at all, but I eventually taught myself how to learn difficult abstract technical information. I'm very much a proponent of the Constructivist learning theory, where communicating ideas to others and practicing by doing are truly the best ways to learn and retain information, both of which I've had plenty of practice with. I'm able to break complicated concepts down to easy-to-follow ideas that flow and link together to enable understanding. My current job involves coordinating between business and engineering departments; being able to communicate technical information to a non-technical audience is a requirement. Through many lectures and one on one sessions, I have had experience in college teaching my peers different concepts, as well as tutoring middle and high school students. I received a 2250 on my SAT and excelled on my SAT II subject exams and AP's (I took the most amount of AP's that my private high school offered. Feel free to ask about my scores)

Additionally, I have a lot of experience helping high school students with the grueling college admissions process. I was a tour guide at MIT, coordinated with admissions a on a regular basis, and helped many students throughout the years with college essays, interviews, resumes, and applications for all kinds of schools. I also have many friends from a number colleges all over the country and have a pretty good idea of what many school are like and what they demand from their applicants.
