About Nelson

Hello everyone! I've been tutoring on Wyzant for a couple years now, and thought I should update my profile. I am currently attending UC Irvine for my Master of Arts in Teaching, and am eager to apply what I'm learning to better help all of you succeed!

I understand from firsthand experience how difficult science classes can be without a proper understanding of the concepts. I also know that with that understanding, science can be easier than you imagined (and fun!). Each student is different, which is why I cater to each student's weaknesses while emphasizing their strengths. By emphasizing a greater understanding of the subject over rote memorization, the student and I work together to succeed in the class. Why spend the time and agony learning the hard way when you could be learning the right way?

Awesome Tutor, Extremely Knowledgeable. — I previously had Nelson as a tutor with calculus and a year later I needed help in statistics. He gladly helped me out. Nelson gets down to business and goes over everything you need to know. Very concise and to the point. Great communication, even answered multiple texts when I needed help the day before an exam. Thanks Nelson! ...
