About Nathan

I was certified in 2013 and 2016 with TEFL through SAFEA and the International TEFL Academy. During college, I focused on calculus and chemistry, while also being a TA for the computer science department. Between 2013-2014, I spent a year teaching English in China, as well. Most recently, I have been giving additional English lessons both in person and online to friends and colleagues.

I particularly enjoy tutoring because of the chance to get to know the students' learning styles more closely in the smaller classroom environment. It's important to get to know each student, their coursework, and their learning habits well, so that we can work together in the best way for them. My approach requires a complete review of the student's needs, before moving into content section, then focus on identifying trouble areas. In particular, if a topic is presenting additional challenge, my specialty is helping the student find another way to interpret the problem solving strategy in order to reframe it in a way they can better understand.

My sincere belief is that no student should be held up on any particular subject. If there's one you need help with, I'm happy to help out.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
