Bio

Hi there. Thank you for stopping by to see me. I want to let you know that, if you want to make all of your classes go easier, I am here to show you how. I have developed a way to teach you how to learn with more ease. So you spend less time worrying and fighting the assignments and more time enjoying what you’re learning and more free time to do other important things. My system has taken me 30 years of teaching to develop. I had to observe carefully what works with students as applied...

Hi there. Thank you for stopping by to see me. I want to let you know that, if you want to make all of your classes go easier, I am here to show you how. I have developed a way to teach you how to learn with more ease. So you spend less time worrying and fighting the assignments and more time enjoying what you’re learning and more free time to do other important things. My system has taken me 30 years of teaching to develop. I had to observe carefully what works with students as applied within the various subjects, I have successfully taught hundreds of students, both here and overseas. I am committed to giving my students the best tutoring. I believe there is more than one way to explain math concepts so that if a student doesn't grasp the way it is presented in class, I can find an alternate way of explaining it. Math can be fun!

I am also a student again myself as a senior math major at CSUN with references from five of my professors. So I know clearly what you experience on the "students side" of the classroom. I will add my math degree to my computer science degree, which I have also taught with great success both here and abroad. Even some of my fellow classmates come to me with many things they don’t understand, and I enjoy helping them too. I am a member of Math Club at CSUN. In 2013 I was one of the top 100 tutors at Wyzant nationwide.

I am available to teach Math all grades up to university sophomore, Statistics and physics up to university freshman. If we don’t make a good match, there will be no charge for the first session. Let’s meet!

I failed stats 2x. Passed with an A with Nick!

When I tell you that I failed, I don’t mean 60% I mean 13% and 23%. In six weeks for an hour, Nick taught me the whole subject, and my professor didn’t teach us. He is accommodating, understanding, knowledgeable and will work with you during technical difficulties. He is amazing. Thank you, Nick.

Helen , 6 lessons with Nick

knowledgeable algebra 2 tutor

Nick was great. He was on time and covered a lot of material in one hour. He was very familiar with material and was able to explain in a way my 15 yr old daughter could understand . Would definitely use again

Ray, 1 lesson with Nick

Nick helped me a lot

Nick was professional and his tutoring style was so understandable. I really understand the concepts better. He knew exactly what I was confused about and taught me a better way to approach these math problems.

Ella , 3 lessons with Nick

Patient and knowledgeable.

Nick is working with our twin boys on Algebra. In 4 sessions they have improved greatly in confidence, knowledge of the material and problem solving. The boys like working with him very much. He is very professional.

Kathryn, 84 lessons with Nick

Great Instruction!

From the first contact with Nick I had a good experience. He contacted me when he said he would. He reviewed my question when he said he would. I appreciate this. Another tutor didn't and that is why I chose Nick. Nick instructed me in graphing a linear equation. He was very precise and efficient. He answered all my questions. He was on time for the session. He also walked me through everything, as this is my first Wyzant session. Over all I am extremely pleased. He made sure I understood the material. I would definitely suggest him to others and will use again.

knowledgeable and patient

going over math problems one by one, lets me solve the problem, then join to help me and understand

Darius, 1 lesson with Nick

The best one

He taught me statistics, which always was a hard subject for me. I always had a problem with math but he explain it very well. Even if you don't understand, he will explain it to you many and many times.

Elnaz, 1 lesson with Nick

Nice tutor

Nick taught me Calculus. I learned a lot from Nick. He really knows a lot about Calculus. He taught me about limits, continuity, derivatives and whole bunch of other stuff.

Ricky, 5 lessons with Nick

Fabulous tutor

In one session Nick was able to help my son get an A on his Calculus test. Nick was able to clarify complicated concepts and give my son the confidence he needed. Thank you, Nick!
