About Nick


Bio

Hello, my name is Nick! I graduated from Stanford University with a BS in Science, technology, and Society as well as an MS in Mechanical Engineering. As the son of two educators, I have always valued not only my own learning but also the chance to share my knowledge with others in ways that help them reach higher levels of understanding.

Hello, my name is Nick! I graduated from Stanford University with a BS in Science, technology, and Society as well as an MS in Mechanical Engineering. As the son of two educators, I have always valued not only my own learning but also the chance to share my knowledge with others in ways that help them reach higher levels of understanding.

I started mentoring other students in junior high, continuing through my year of college at SMU's Summer Youth day camps coaching and teaching classes that combined educational concepts with fun activities. While at Stanford, I was a Teaching Assistant for the graduate level Design sequence in the Mechanical Engineering Department, which is centered around product design and draws from multiple technical fields.

I'm an excellent communicator who knows how to change my approach when things aren't working. Having a good understanding of material lets me explain things from different angles to make sure to build understanding, not just knowledge. I have also always been an exceptional test-taker, scoring highly on the ACT, SAT, and GRE, and earning the titles of National Merit Finalist and AP Scholar with Distinction. My expertise spans multiple levels of Math, Physics, History, and standardized tests.

I am very flexible when it comes to times and/or locations. I am easy to reach and quick to respond. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have or to schedule a session!

Drums

Though I got my first snare drum at 4 years old, my real dedicated experience started in middle school. I've been drumming since then for the past 14 years, performing in multiple bands and musical ensembles on both drum set and marching snare. I was leader of my college drumline, a position that required weekly teaching of parts to section members.
