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 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 the chance to share my knowledge with others in ways that help them reach higher levels of understanding.

I started mentoring other students early in high school, both as a tutor and as a summer job at an educational enrichment camp run by SMU. 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 have experience working with all age groups from elementary school through adult learners prepping for the GRE.

I'm an observant communicator who knows how to change my approach when things aren't working. My goal is to help students reach understanding of material, not just knowledge, so I never let fake "OK's" go unaddressed.

My expertise spans multiple levels of Math, Physics, and History. I am also highly experienced with standardized tests, having helped dozens of students raise their scores on the ACT, SAT, and GRE, all of which I scored in the top 2% nationally myself.

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.

As the son of two molecular biology PhDs, science has always been a familiar and comfortable subject for me.

Excellent

Nick has worked with my daughter a few times now and he is the best tutor she has had. He is knowledgeable but also down to earth with working with a 16 year old. I HIGHLY recommend him!
