About Nathaniel

Over the past several years, I have had many great experiences tutoring. I worked at Cabrillo College’s Math Learning Center (MLC) for 4 years before transferring to UCSC and transitioning into private tutoring only.

At the MLC, my wide breadth of knowledge as well as willingness to work with challenging students lead me to become one of the most often requested tutors. I enjoyed the challenge of switching between different levels of math, as well as subjects. I was unique in that I could effectively teach not only math, but physics and chemistry as well. There are many connections between these subjects, and I feel that an understanding in one can help strengthen the others. My abilities in these other subjects helped me to become a private tutor in my own time for both College and High School students alike.

Currently, I am attending UCSC as a Chemistry Major and tutoring privately in my down time. I have several students that I meet with regularly to help with various subjects, as well as some more intermittent clients. While tutoring began as a way to utilize what I had learned and make a little money, it has actually become one of the most fulfilling experiences I've had. Each time I hear of a pupil doing well on a test, I feel overjoyed and proud that I could make a difference in their lives.
I take great pride in my work and enjoy the challenge of finding which approach makes the most sense to any given student. Everyone is different, and my diverse experience with various mathematic subjects as well as other sciences lets me find connections and new approaches that others might miss.

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.

Algebra 1

I have 4 years of experience tutoring for a community college's Math Learning Center.
I also have tutored general sciences privately for 3 years.

Calculus

As a special note, I worked for Cabrillo Community Colleges math learning center tutoring mostly calculus and up.

Chemistry

I was a Chemistry major at UCSC where I also did research for their chemistry department.
I worked in the Chemistry Stockroom at Cabrillo Community College helping to set up experiments.

Differential Equations

At Cabrillo Community College I passed differential equations with above average marks and tutored this subject for their math learning center when the need presented itself. I spent 2 years teaching this subject to others.

Organic Chemistry

During my time Cabrillo Community College, I completed the year long organic chemistry course at an above average standing. After which I helped a plethora of students to understands the concepts of resonance, aromaticity, and synthesis; Diels Alder, Michael's, and Heck reactions just to name a few. Recently I completed the advanced Organic Chemistry course at UCSC again with good marks which reinforced my prior knowledge.

Precalculus

I have 4 years of tutoring experience In all areas of mathematics via Cabrillo Community College's Math Learning Center.
