About Nicholas


Bio

I am a recent graduate from Tulane University (Class of 2017) with a BS in Mathematics and a BFA in Jazz Studies. I have several years experience tutoring middle school, high school, and college students in math subjects like algebra, geometry, precalculus, and calculus, while I also informally helped my peers while in the math program at Tulane.

I am a recent graduate from Tulane University (Class of 2017) with a BS in Mathematics and a BFA in Jazz Studies. I have several years experience tutoring middle school, high school, and college students in math subjects like algebra, geometry, precalculus, and calculus, while I also informally helped my peers while in the math program at Tulane.

I have found that working one on one with a tutor or teacher is the fastest way for a student to reach understanding and mastery of a topic. I love to help others in the subjects I know well and am passionate about, it's a very rewarding experience to help someone understand something and have that "Aha!" moment.

In addition to my math training, I am also a performing musician in New Orleans and received a BFA in Jazz Studies from Tulane. I play the saxophone and clarinet and have been playing for over 15 years. I have given lessons before in saxophone and have taken many theory and ear training classes as a part of my Jazz Studies degree. I love music and love to help others realize their potential in it.

Feel free to contact me with any further questions about subject matter, availability, etc. I look forward to hearing from you!

Ear Training,

Ear Training

I have completed 2 years/4 classes of ear training as a part of my music degree. In addition, I continue to use these skills acquired and build on them as a musician. Through practices like transcription and learning songs by ear, I use many of the habits built by basic ear training.
Saxophone,

Saxophone

I have been playing the saxophone for over 15 years. My focus is on the tenor saxophone, but I have experience playing soprano, alto, and baritone sax as well and understand how each instrument plays differently. I focus on learning the jazz style, but am constantly keeping my fundamental techniques in practice and play in lots of other styles.

Great tutor

My son needed a Calculus tutor in a hurry and Nicholas came to the rescue. He worked with our schedule and my son is very comfortable with him and says “ yeah he really knows his stuff “ . My son is hard to please so this says a lot about Nicholas.

Great resource

Nicholas helped my niece feel more confident in the work she was doing. After a week of struggling, she found hat his 1-1 skills helped her tremendously. I would strongly recommend him.
