About Nicholas


Bio

Hello. I am a math professor at a local university, and I am interested in tutoring most mathematical subjects. I enjoy the one-on-one interaction that you get when you tutor, and I want to help you be successful in your mathematical studies. I have won several teaching awards, and am very popular with my students. I became a professor because I have always loved helping people who are mathphobic to understand and even enjoy math, and doing so has been the focus of my work.

I am available weekday evenings (except Thursday) and weekends so if you are interested in meeting me, please get in touch. I look forward to working with you.

Statistics

Statistics

I have taught introduction to statistics a few times in graduate school.

English

SAT Reading

SAT Reading

I scored an 800 on the SAT Verbal when I was in high school, and I am familiar with both the content of the SAT and with tips and tricks which will improve success.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have been teaching College Algebra for the last three years, and have extensive experience helping my students correct common algebra problems that they have from high school.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have been teaching college algebra (an accelerated combination of algebra I and II) at Framingham State for the last three years. I am very popular with my students, and devote most of my time at work to perfecting my techniques in the class.
Calculus,

Calculus

Over the ten years I have been teaching math, I have usually taught Calculus I or Calculus II. I have taught it to students at community colleges, and students at top-ranked private universities, and have experience teaching to students of all levels of math ability.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have spent the last few years helping old students of mine with their geometry homework at FSU, and have taught the course once. I have tutored both high school and college geometry.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

As part of my college algebra classes, I regularly have to remind my non-traditional students about prealgebra facts which they have forgotten in the years since they were in school. I have extensive practice explaining these topics to math-anxious students.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have taught precalculus for 2 years, and have taught the concepts of precalculus as part of teaching calculus for over 5 years. I have a lot of experience explaining precalculus concepts in a clear way to students who are math-averse.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I got a 750 on the SAT Math way back in 1997, though when I took the GRE general test in 2002, I got an 800 on the math section.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I have studied ODEs, PDEs, and stochastic differential equations in undergraduate and graduate school, and I have TAed differential equations in the past.
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I have TAed and taught discrete math several times, and taken graph theory, logic, set theory, and other related courses in undergrad.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have spent the last few years helping old students of mine with their geometry homework at FSU, and have taught the course once. I have tutored both high school and college geometry.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I took linear algebra in college, I have graded a linear algebra class in graduate school, and my area of mathematical research (operator theory) is the infinite-dimensional generalization of matrix algebra. My thesis result was about matrix multiplication (more or less).
Logic,

Logic

When I was an undergraduate, I took graduate mathematical logic with a professor who had been a student of Alonzo Church. I spent the only all-nighter of my college career helping three friends finish the material of an online self-paced math logic class we had all signed up for. In graduate school I took and received an A in a seminar on logic and forcing arguments.

AMAZING

Great teacher, super knowledgeable and always goes above and beyond even though he is super busy. I appreciate him so much and is the only one I have to thank for saving my grade in my class and taking my failing grade to a B when I was aiming for a low C to just pass 😅👏🏻. Amazing teacher!

Allexsa, 10 lessons with Nicholas

Extremely Helpful with very high level statistics

Nicholas is a pro. He easily taught me many areas of graduate-level statistics, linear algebra, and calculus in a single lesson. Will absolutely work with him again

Tripp, 8 lessons with Nicholas

Excellent math tutor!

I was impressed with Nic's ability to understand and explain any type of discrete math problem that came up. If you do not understand one method, he can work through alternate ways of solving a problem until you 'get it'. By knowing the material as well as he does, he is not only able to come up with multiple approaches right on the spot but also does not waste precious time having to constantly refresh his memory on the material being covered. He teaches the material as his day job, so he is excellent at what he does. Also, I just want to say that I found Nic to be incredibly courteous and accommodating. My schedule was a bit unpredictable and he did a great job finding time for me, making the scheduling of regular tutoring sessions as painless as possible. Thanks again for all your help!
