I recently graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a bachelor's degree in psychology: cognitive neuroscience. I am currently a First Year Medical Student pursuing an M.D. As someone who has endured his share of rigorous coursework, I have come to enjoy helping others in their respective academic journeys!

As far as academic tutoring subjects go, my specialties are psychology and writing/proofreading. My college major has prepared me to tutor a wide range of areas within psychology, from introductory/AP and IB level psych classes to other areas such as research methods, cognitive science, and developmental psychology. In addition, writing intensive coursework was a big part of my college career, and I specialize in helping students craft writing pieces for a variety of purposes (application essays, writing assignments, resume, email, etc.) As someone who just went through the medical school application process, I am actively seeking students who would like help with their personal statements, AMCAS activities, and secondary essays. I assist students in all aspects of the writing process including brainstorming, grammar checks, structural edits, word choice edits, etc.

In addition to academic tutoring, I teach private guitar lessons both online and in person. I started teaching guitar in 2014, and have continued studying and performing through my college years. I have experience in the classical, jazz, rock, and pop music settings. Throughout the years, I have studied with master guitar players in a variety of styles, and have won several awards for my playing. I teach students of all levels, and welcome students from all types of musical backgrounds/interests.

In general, I like to match my tutoring methods to the learning style of the student. I am always open to any suggestions that students or their parents may have about how to optimize our tutoring sessions. I value effective communication, and promise all of my students that I will respond to their questions/concerns in a timely manner.

Fantastic tutor!

Our 4th grader says, "I love that Nathan balances doing problems with fun activities. I really like my lessons a lot. Nathan is the best math teacher I've had. I learn a lot more from him than I learn in school. He is my favorite teacher." As the parents, we are so happy to see her want to do her math lessons. She loves her classes with Nathan and they have made so much progress. He is a fantastic teacher.

Great help provided!

I needed help with editing and perfecting my personal statement for the application to the medical schools. I was contacted by Nathan and upon reviewing his ratings on his profile I quickly contacted him and scheduled a lesson right away. Nathan is very enthusiastic and gives honest feedback. I particularly enjoyed how he helped me to change my writing and together we worked on the structure and content of my personal statement. It was a delight to work with him. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Helpful and knowledgeable tutor

Nathan has been helping me with my college level research methods class. I have never come across a better tutor than him! He’s patient and so helpful by making sure I understand exactly what we’re working on. I definitely wouldn’t be doing as well in the class if it wasn’t for Nathan’s help. Another amazing thing is that he’s extremely flexible with scheduling which allows me to get help when I need it.

Knowledgeable and proficient tutor!!

Nathan is the best tutor! From our first lesson he spent time explaining the material, using the white board to teach me, and very patient in going through the material. I got a 98% on my exam after working with him for 2 weeks! I recommend him 100% and will continue to use him as my tutor in brain biology!

A knowledgeable and patient tutor

Nathan is a skilled guitarist, but also an effective instructor. The material he prepares for my lesson implements everything we learn, and logically increases in difficult. He will give you just the right amount of challenge to keep you engaged. I feel very lucky to have found him. I recommend Nathan to anyone who wants to play more music, improve their skills on the guitar at any stage.
