Hello, I’m Nick. Thank you for your time reading my bio. I offer a 15 minutes online demo session for new students. I love learning and teaching. 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. I have been tutoring since elementary school helping my classmates. I had to observe carefully what works with students as applied within the various subjects, I have successfully taught thousands of students, both in USA 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 have studied Computer Science overseas and Applied Math at California State University Northridge (CSUN). In 2013, I was one of the top 100 tutors at Wyzant nationwide.
I am available to teach Math, Prealgebra, Algebra 1 & 2, College Algebra, Precalculus, AP calculus AB & BC, Calculus I, II, III, Geometry, Trigonometry, Probability, AP Statistics, Statistics, ACT, SAT, GRE math, physics, AP physics, College general Physics and Chess.

Great teacher

Nick explains everything in ways much easier to understand. He breaks down difficult topics into smaller, more simple parts to make sure you understand each step for every type of problem!

Nicole, 8 lessons with Nick

Pharmacy school Biostatistics

Nick was super helpful and knowledgable, he helped me to understand the material, and clarified everything in a simple language. I would absolutely recommend him to whoever that struggling with biostatistics

Rozh, 1 lesson with Nick

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Nick is very patient and knows his material. He helped me understand formulas I could not understand in class. I have two more sessions booked with him and will use him in the future!

Danielle, 1 lesson with Nick

Outstanding Math Tutor

Nick was an outstanding Math Tutor. He helped my son with AP statistics. He showed up on time for every lesson and made use of every minute. He is easy to work with and flexible with scheduling when we have special circumstances. His teaching style is very clear and straightforward. Nick has a calm demeanor, soft-spoken, and knows his material exceptionally well; I highly recommend him!

Amine, 26 lessons with Nick

Knowledge and informative

A very good tutor and mentor ! My son wants to continue with him in college too . My son was very comfortable in learning with him . He was able to explain concepts very clearly in a way that my son could understand.

Saeba, 27 lessons with Nick

knowledgeable and patient tutor

Nick is teaching my daughter pre-calculus and is doing a spectacular job! My daughter has renewed confidence in her abilities. Nick is a patient teacher who meets the students where they are and works at their pace to increase their understanding and bring them to where they need to be.

Lucrece , 11 lessons with Nick

Very Knowledgable

Nick is great! He made me feel more confident and explained how to study and taught me different ways to look at problems that actually make sense. He understands that not everyone learns the same way. Look forward to another session soon! :)

Karina, 2 lessons with Nick

Reliable and great at Trig Math

My daughter has really improved since starting her tutoring sessions with Nick. Nick was very patient and reliable each time and I would use him again. Thanks Nick.

Tanya, 3 lessons with Nick

A GREAT tutor

Nick is really smart and adaptive to many kinds of problems. Whatever question(s) you may have, he will give his best, which has always been enough to get the right answer. Nick is very approachable and understanding when you ask him to explain the problem to you. I would recommend Nick 10/10 . I have used many used many tutors from this site and Nick is one of the best.
