About Nick


Bio

I first started tutoring while I was in college. Initially it was simply help that I offered to friends, but I found that I enjoyed helping others understand ideas that they previously thought were out of reach for themselves. I have now earned a Bachelor's degree in Physics and intend to continue studying as I move on to pursue a Master's degree.

I am a tutor specialized in math and physics. My goal is to keep a student thinking in order to reach a correct conclusion by asking questions...

I first started tutoring while I was in college. Initially it was simply help that I offered to friends, but I found that I enjoyed helping others understand ideas that they previously thought were out of reach for themselves. I have now earned a Bachelor's degree in Physics and intend to continue studying as I move on to pursue a Master's degree.

I am a tutor specialized in math and physics. My goal is to keep a student thinking in order to reach a correct conclusion by asking questions meant to call attention to the subject, or by giving feedback and explanations on their work. I prefer to leave a student not just with an ability to recite formulas, but a familiarity of the concept and a knowledge of why and how an answer is the right answer.

While I am located in Thousand Oaks, CA, I am willing to travel if there is a more convenient location for the student. While I do attend school to obtain my master's degree, I am flexible when it comes to scheduling meeting times.

Thoughtful and patient math tutor

Nick is currently tutoring my 9th grader who has been struggling with Algebra. He is very calm and patient, and I would recommend him in particular for those kids who are anxious about math. He is also very punctual and responsive, and has been flexible and understanding of our busy schedule.

Algebra II tutor

Nick has a great understanding of the subject and was able to help my son better understand how to set up word problems for Algebra 2. They were able to cover a lot of material during the session.

Today, Nick helped me with my math homework which consisted mostly of scatter plots. He explained the material in a way that could be better understood and was very, very patient. I went home confident and prepared.
