About Nate


Bio

I have tutored for 5+ years and helped hundreds of students improved their ACT scores and general math skills.

What sets me apart is that I can explain very complex situations in a way that makes it easy for the student to understand and equip the student with the tools they need to solve a variety of problems, rather than teach them how to solve a single problem. All of my students know they can call me for help anytime and even send me pictures of homework questions they are stuck on so I...

I have tutored for 5+ years and helped hundreds of students improved their ACT scores and general math skills.

What sets me apart is that I can explain very complex situations in a way that makes it easy for the student to understand and equip the student with the tools they need to solve a variety of problems, rather than teach them how to solve a single problem. All of my students know they can call me for help anytime and even send me pictures of homework questions they are stuck on so I can walk them through it (without giving them the answer, of course).

My tutoring approach is to supplement instruction that goes along with the curriculum you're learning, as well as covering any specific questions or topics you want to go through. I provide examples of various problems that will be similar to what you see on the test, and work through them with you, providing lots of help and guidance at first, and then steadily giving less hints so that you gain the confidence to do them on your own. My goal is to get you to know the material well enough to feel comfortable and at ease when working with problems on homework or tests.

I got into tutoring because I got a 36 on my own ACT math section, and I needed a way to make some extra money and keep my math skills sharp. I quickly realized that I loved teaching students one-on-one and my students had an average improvement score of 9 points on the ACT. After that, I began helping students in a variety of subjects and had lots of success.

If you would like some guidance to understanding math and becoming more confident solving those problems you’re stuck on, please contact me. I would love to help!

My daughter said he was very knowledgeable and patient and helpful

"Nate was great at helping me review, I have a big test coming up and I would like to take a higher math."

Wish I Hired Him Sooner

My son, a junior in high school, didn't want a tutor for honors pre-calc, but he needed one. He got lost early in the semester and, as a result, stayed a half-step behind. We've only used Nate for five hours of tutoring so far (in one week) to help our son prepare for a test. He got a B on the test. Prior to tutoring with Nate, he had been getting Bs on quizzes but Ds on all three tests. Nate will continue tutoring him through finals next week and later this summer to help improve our son's ACT math score, currently a 24. Nate is punctual, amiable, and very smart. He may be college "kid," but he's as responsible as any adult. Truly impressive. He has been able to connect with our son, maybe because they're relatively close in age, who now feels comfortable asking questions and admitting when he "doesn't get it." I wish I'd hired Nate sooner.
