About Nick

If my high school English teachers knew that I was now one of them, I fear there would be a sudden glut of teaching vacancies in the Colorado Springs area. Ironic as it is, the kid who once proclaimed that "Catcher in the Rye" was "the worst book ever written" now rereads it once a year and has tutored or taught English and writing for almost a decade. While my academic path may not have been ideal, I understand the plight of the overwhelmed, unmotivated, or bored student who doesn't understand why he needs to know what a prepositional phrase is. I think it's that empathy -- and an infectious passion for writing -- that has made me a good teacher and a better tutor.

I have had the good fortune of tutoring writing professionally now for each of the major colleges in the Colorado Springs area: the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Colorado College, and Pikes Peak Community College. Each student population was dramatically different, so I have years of experience working with students at every level and on a wide range of assignments. I am also a freelance writer, editor, and graphic designer, and am perpetually working on a book idea or an art project.

Shoot me a note if you or a family member could use some help with English. I'd be happy to help; and you never know, you may just end up tutoring someone else one day.
