About Nicholas


Bio

After more than twenty years as an educator at the high school and college level, I still have a great love of teaching. I have taught in both traditional and alternative settings and have had the privilege of instructing students from diverse backgrounds. One-to-one, individualized tutoring is one of the best ways of meeting students' needs and helping them to exceed expectations.

After more than twenty years as an educator at the high school and college level, I still have a great love of teaching. I have taught in both traditional and alternative settings and have had the privilege of instructing students from diverse backgrounds. One-to-one, individualized tutoring is one of the best ways of meeting students' needs and helping them to exceed expectations.

I have taught, tutored, worked with, and continued to study Russian and other foreign languages for over twenty years. In addition to graduate work, I have extensive classroom and real-world experience. Every bit as important, I have never lost my love of the subject.

I have studied the grammar, not only of English, but of several foreign languages. As has been said, nothing teaches you your own language's grammar like studying that of another. I have also studied linguistics at the University of Arizona and the University of Chicago.

When it comes to tutoring for the Armed Services Vocation and Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) Exam, I am an honorably discharged veteran (Army) and former Non-commissioned Officer, who has been through the process. My own test-taking strategies allowed me to score a 97 on the ASVAB and a 130 on the Defense Language Aptitude Battery (DLAB). I would like to help you succeed on the ASVAB and/or DLAB exam as that is vital to getting the MOS and military career you feel would allow you to serve at the highest level.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

Professional! Speaks many languages.

Professional teacher. High availability. Deep knowledge in more than two languages. He knows by his own experience how hard is learning a new language. It is an important advantage when compared with regular English teachers.
