About Nathan


Bio

Hello, I'm Nathan. I am a recent high school graduate who graduated 2nd in a class of 540 with a 4.4 GPA, straight A's in 8 AP Courses, and 72 college credits. I have quite a bit of informal tutoring experience from helping fellow classmates at both the high school and college level in the areas of math, the sciences, and various others. I have even helped students with college courses I had not yet taken, and tutored college students while still in high school. I'm currently taking time off...

Hello, I'm Nathan. I am a recent high school graduate who graduated 2nd in a class of 540 with a 4.4 GPA, straight A's in 8 AP Courses, and 72 college credits. I have quite a bit of informal tutoring experience from helping fellow classmates at both the high school and college level in the areas of math, the sciences, and various others. I have even helped students with college courses I had not yet taken, and tutored college students while still in high school. I'm currently taking time off from school for personal reasons and am looking to help students who are struggling or looking to get ahead.

Oftentimes, coursework can be overwhelming and complex due to a lack of communication or explanation from the instructor, or inefficient techniques (such as rote-memorization) from the part of the student. I believe success in the classroom comes from an understanding of the foundation and principles that make up a courses content. You should be able to solve problems because you understand all the parts involved, NOT because you memorized a formula or equation.

Once you understand the principles, you will not have to worry about memorization. Cramming for tests and then forgetting all of that valuable information will be a thing of the past. These are the reasons I have been able to teach students courses I haven't taken in years, or courses I have never taken. Once you understand principles, every problem is just a slight variation of the same thing. This is much more efficient and much less overwhelming for the student struggling or trying to get ahead, and I would love the opportunity to help instill this idea and understanding of the principles of whatever course it is that someone needs help in.

In short, I would like to help students take some of the stress away from school and help them improve in the process. Any resources that the student or parent may want to provide, and open communication between myself and the student and/or parent is encouraged. I will always try to respond in a timely and helpful manner to any concerns or questions.

Straight A+'s through every math class in school up to AP Calculus BC, for which I received a 5 on the AP exam and 8 college credits.

Straight A+'s throughout all science classes including AP Chemistry, for which I was the only one of 20+ students in my class who received a 5 on the AP exam.

Please contact me to see if we would be a good fit for one another! I hope to be able to help you succeed, and look forward to scheduling some lessons together.
