I am a High school English instructor who has eight years of experience teaching all levels of students, from Freshmen to Seniors, and co-taught Special Education classrooms to Honors courses. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in both English (Summa Cum Laude from Governors State University) and Creative Writing (High Honors from Columbia College Chicago). Finally, as a Senior writing class instructor, I have years of expierence teaching, reviewing, and editing College essays and prepping students for the ACT.

I am an energetic and positive educator who believes all students can learn with patience and presented with the right strategy. As a tutor, I have a positive attitude toward learning and to understanding the struggles a student faces in their learning. I believe in asking my students questions so they arrive at the conclusion and understand their mistakes in order to grow from them. My classroom motto is that my students should always be working harder than I am and I plan to bring that attitude into our sessions.

Reach out so we can start working together. I am available after school Monday through Friday. Weekends are negotiable.

Great person

Nick is a great tutor. He is knowledgeable and patient. He did a lot of preparation before each session and helped my son passed the test on the 8th-grade Subject and Predicate with 100% score just in one session. We are very happy with his tutoring and his effectiveness. We are looking forward to more lessons with him.
