About Nicholas

Greetings! My name is Nick, and I have been blessed to be able to tutor math as my full time job since graduating with highest honors from the California State University. Over the past twenty years I have had successful results with over one thousand students in the Orange County area. In addition to tutoring I teach Algebra and Geometry part-time at a local school, and I am head coach of a travel baseball club!

I usually spend my first session getting to know your student's learning style, strengths, and weaknesses. I will probably spend some time assessing a few fundamentals, but I really need to know what makes your student comfortable and what will make learning enjoyable. This helps me to personalize a program, enhancing learning in a way that is most efficient and accelerates your student's success. I also like to make lessons fun, and I've been told on countless occasions that my patience is my greatest asset!

I pretty much have the math spectrum covered...subjects include the new Common Core curriculum for elementary school, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Finite Math, Discrete Math, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus, as well as honors courses at all levels. I have helped hundreds of students improve their scores on the math sections of the SAT and ACT and have had dozens of students achieve perfect scores. I have had great results with all age groups.

My home base in the Tustin-Santa Ana-Anaheim Hills-Orange area and yes, to help make things as convenient as possible, I will drive to your location.

Whether you are looking to improve test scores, boost grades, or even get ahead for next year, I will be totally invested in helping you and your student achieve your goals!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Teaching is a craft - Nick is a skilled teacher

Teaching is a skill and a craft. Just because an individual has mastered a subject does not necessarily make him a good teacher. Nick is a skilled teacher. He has tutored both of my boys - one in pre calc and one in summer geometry. Both boys have a good relationship with him and have done well in their respective classes. he is a gifted teacher and has a vested interest in seeing the kids succeed
