About Nick


Bio

Hey!

I'm Nick.

For almost 10 years now, I've been a leading test prep guru and writing coach in sunny Southern California.

I've tutored on-set with some of America's brightest young on-screen talent and presented on application essays and test strategy to parents and students all over the Los Angeles area.

I'm the author of a curriculum and the tutor of choice for students who are committed to hitting 1500+ on SAT or 34+ on ACT.

My writing has been published in over a dozen publications,...

Hey!

I'm Nick.

For almost 10 years now, I've been a leading test prep guru and writing coach in sunny Southern California.

I've tutored on-set with some of America's brightest young on-screen talent and presented on application essays and test strategy to parents and students all over the Los Angeles area.

I'm the author of a curriculum and the tutor of choice for students who are committed to hitting 1500+ on SAT or 34+ on ACT.

My writing has been published in over a dozen publications, and I’ve helped hundreds of students perfect straightforward, practical techniques for improving their own writing. My strength is listening to and understanding what my students really want to say, then helping them shape it into an original, compelling essay.

Year in and year out, my students earn admission to every Ivy League school, Stanford, MIT, Georgetown (my alma mater), Duke, Northwestern, and other top-ranked institutions.

I want to get you there too.

Looking forward to getting started!

If you want to crack 34 on ACT, look no further. For the past six years, I've scored a perfect 36 on ACT English and helped my high-scoring students finally reach the 99th percentile to be competitive at top colleges. You will struggle to break 34 on ACT English by only trusting "what sounds right" or "what flows well". Many students have a solid "ear" for grammar rules, but on this test, what sounds right is not always right. Solid knowledge of just a few key grammar rules goes a long way towards consistency and is one of the most efficient ways to improve your overall score fast. We'll also work on strategies to crack the 'style' and 'organization' questions on ACT English. A common misconception about ACT is that multiple answers "could" work. This is not true. The wrong answers are simply wrong. In order to make the test "objective", the ACT plants small, but specific, technical errors in the wrong answers so that there's no room for debate. We'll learn to identify those small cues to simplify even the hardest questions on ACT English. ACT English is often overlooked as a way to improve your overall "composite" score since even high scorers can pick up a few extra points by sharpening grammar knowledge.

If you want to crack 34 on ACT, look no further. I've scored a perfect 36 on ACT Reading for the past four years and helped my high-scoring students finally reach the 99th percentile to be competitive at top colleges. You will struggle to score over 34 on ACT Reading until you learn how to stop trying to interpret and start scanning efficiently then applying process of elimination. ACT Reading is easy to overthink. Most of the questions simply ask you to efficiently locate details in the passage, not interpret or analyze. We'll work on a good method search passages quickly and accurately to be sure you get through all four passages in time. A common misconception about ACT Reading is that multiple answers "could" be right. This isn't true. The wrong answers are wrong. So, I encourage my students to approach ACT Reading using thorough Process of Elimination based on the 3 types of wrong answers every ACT Reading question falls into.

Write it as you would say it. Show don’t tell. Don’t end sentences with a preposition. Tie it all together in your conclusion. Don’t use adjectives or adverbs. Use nouns and verbs. Vary your sentence structure. Please. I don’t know if I can tell you what learning to write is, but it sure isn’t memorizing rules. Many students never get direct guidance on their writing in school. They end up with rushed, superficial, often contradictory guidance. Unfortunately, the name of the game in school writing is to impress the teacher, not learn to communicate effectively. That’s where I come in. Working one-on-one, you’ll develop the ability to write with purpose, to fuse what’s in your mind and what’s on the page. Whether it’s figuring out what you really want to say, structuring your essay, or just punching it up for extra kick, we can help turn your writing into a powerful asset.

If you want to crack 1500 on SAT, look no further. For the past six years, I've scored a perfect 800 on SAT verbal and helped my high-scoring students finally reach the 99th percentile to be competitive at top colleges. SAT Reading is challenging but consistent. You will struggle to break 750 verbal if you approach SAT Reading by only 'looking for the right answer'. We flip the script. A common misconception about SAT is that multiple answers "could" work, but this is not true. The wrong answers are wrong. In order to make the test "objective", the SAT plants small, but specific, technical errors in the wrong answers so that there's no room for debate. Every single wrong answer on SAT Reading is wrong for one of the same three reasons over and over again. Even those tricky 'Evidence' questions. We'll learn to break down questions and find the best answer using process of elimination driven by those three reasons.

College Counseling

College Counseling

Many students and parents have the college game backwards. They try to conform to what they think colleges want, but "what colleges want" is unique students with profiles of specific talents and interests. Colleges don't want a class full of all-around good students. They want a class of specialists and budding niche experts. With my comprehensive knowledge of special "backdoors" many accepted students use to get an edge at top schools, I can help you identify a specialty and tailor your profile through college essays/extracurriculars/majors to a niche that will maximize your chances of admission at top-ranked schools. Year after year, my college counseling students gain acceptance to every Ivy League school, MIT, Stanford, Georgetown (my alma mater), Duke, Carnegie Mellon, Northwestern, and more. A huge part of this success is that my students end up with top-notch application essays. My own writing has been published in over a dozen publications and my years of experience writing web copy have taught me how to apply that punchy style to college essays in order to grab a reader's attention. I don't just write or edit college application essays for my students; I teach them writing strategies that will be valuable far beyond their years in college.

You will struggle to score over 34 on Science until you learn how to hack the wording of answer choices. Many students start out finding ACT Science intimidating because they think of it as an actual science knowledge test rather than a reading comprehension test. Though the wording can be confusing and the content rather dense, the questions on ACT Science require only superficial understanding of the passages. I teach my students to break down answer choices in parts so they can apply process of elimination efficiently to avoid the traps and tricks ACT Science likes to use. We'll also work on timing. A common misconception is that the best way to handle the tough timing constraints of ACT Science is to rush. This is not true. You will get faster by getting more familiar and comfortable with the questions. Once you learn how to compare and work through answers, you'll find that you're getting through ACT Science in plenty of time.

Nick is very patient, considerate and knowledgeable. He has been absolutely fantastic to work with. He helped review and adjust my son's college essays and waitlist statements. I can't recommend him enough!!!!

elisa, 4 lessons with Nick

Effective, Focussed and to the point

Nick held a very effective meeting with my son helping him get results on 2 questions for an internship. He took the rough draft and in 1 session was able to get it to a stage very close to final. His breadth of knowledge on various topics and ability to draw out more information from my son in this very short time was impressive to say the least.

Deepa, 3 lessons with Nick

After one session, my son seemed to like him and the fact he knew his stuff and where to focus was great.

Nick was awesome. Knew his stuff! My son seemed to like his youthfulness and ability to focus on where he needs extra work. We are looking forward to the second session

Very knowledgeable and excellent tutor

We would like to put in few words for Nick. He has been a wonderful mentor in walking us through the English Essay writing. He is very creative and inspiring teacher. He explained everything so well and made it very easy to follow. He taught us how much we are capable of and what we could achieve by being descriptive writing skills. Thank You for helping us and making sure that we got that extra help when we needed it.

Nick was patient with my son Rayyan and helped him come up with ideas to improve his essays without affecting his voice. He gave some very valuable suggestions. He used entire one hour of his time. His feedback was to the point .
