About Nicolas


Bio

I graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara. During my freshman year of high school, I started helping my peers understand math concepts. That is when I realized that not only did I have a knack for tutoring, but also, I enjoyed it. While at UCSB I worked as a math and physics tutor at the drop-in room for the Campus Learning Assistance Services.

I graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara. During my freshman year of high school, I started helping my peers understand math concepts. That is when I realized that not only did I have a knack for tutoring, but also, I enjoyed it. While at UCSB I worked as a math and physics tutor at the drop-in room for the Campus Learning Assistance Services. Since moving to Los Angeles over 3 years ago, I have been tutoring math, physics, English, SAT II math and physics, and ISEE for students of all ages and levels.

I earned my degree in English with a minor in physics. My diverse educational background allows me to tutor a range of subjects – from English and writing to math and physics.

I focus on helping our students arrive at the answer themselves, not just giving them the answer. I sharpen my students’ learning skills by helping them think through the problem on their own before I start guiding them toward the answer. This enhances the quality of the tutoring session. Additionally, I never rush through assignments with my students. My primary goal is to assure he or she comprehends the concepts.

No matter where a student is learning-wise, as long as he or she is willing to learn, improvement will follow.

Reading,

Reading

I have been helping students of all ages with reading for the past 6 years. Increasing confidence in reading comes from going slow, making sure your student gets the basics (phonics) down, and giving he or she a chance to use their imagination to have fun with reading (books with pictures work well for this depending on his or her level). Reading is critical to learning and life, and I very much enjoy helping students learn this crucial skill.

Very patient, knowledgeable and punctual.

Nicolas has been amazing helping my son. He has been coming for six lessons already and my son feels very confident after his lesson. He has been helping him with pre-calculus. I will definitely use his services again in the future. Nicolas is very knowledgeable and a very respectful person.

Fast to respond and able to simpify differential equations

Nicolas was very friendly and patient. She arrived on time, answered emails promptly, had a good command of the subject, and could teach in a way that was easy and simple enough for a struggling student like myself to understand. He helped me grasp the general equations of first and second order differentials and integration. His teaching pacing was good for me as a beginner calculus student. I would use him again.
