About Nicholas

Hello! Boozhoo! Hola! Ola!

My name is Nicholas and I am a certified Secondary Social Studies teacher with significant knowledge in English and languages. I have taught for three years in the Duluth, Hermantown, and Catholic School districts in the Twin Ports region working at all ages from kindergarten through twelfth grade with further experiences working with college students. I look forward to helping you achieve your tutoring goals, whether they be to improve your grades, deepen your understanding of subjects or learn something new!

I have studied Ojibwe, Spanish and Portuguese as well as spent significant amounts of time in Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries. Furthermore I received a minor in Ojibwe language from UMD. I am confident I can help you to better understand basic to intermediate Ojibwe, Spanish and Portuguese.

Through my time teaching I helped many students interpret literature as well as write excellent essays. If you need help understanding a text or writing a paper I can provide a trained teacher's eye to details that will help you to succeed.

With professional experience and state certification in Secondary Social studies I can give direction and insight into history (World, American, Latin American and European), geography, international studies, global studies, American Indian Studies and current events.

Please feel free to contact me! I have worked professionally with students from elementary through college ages, and I am sure I can help you achieve your goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

European History

I am a licensed high school social studies teacher with professional experience teaching high school level history. Over the course of three years of teaching I have taught middle and high school European history students. Additionally I have extensive college coursework in European history.

Geography

I currently hold a high school teaching license in Social Studies. Through years of teaching at the secondary level I have had several professional experiences teaching geography. Furthermore I have extensive coursework, world experience, and further professional training in geography from many parts of the world including Europe, the Americas and Africa.

Lacrosse

I played lacrosse for seven years through middle and high school and served as varsity team captain my senior year of high school. I have taught lacrosse in an elementary school physical education setting and have a deep understanding of the game which I am happy to teach at any level. Additionally I have participated in a traditional lacrosse workshop presented by Native American coaches teaching the history and cultural significance of lacrosse to many native peoples.

Martial Arts

I have taught martial arts for 5 years and have ten years of martial arts experience. I specialize in Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian martial art (10 years experience), and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (3 years experience) with experience in historic European Fencing (3 years experience). I travel to and organize events for Capoeira year round and maintain a jiu-jitsu class as a coach at a local Duluth academy.

Portuguese

I am proficient in Brazilian Portuguese and have experience teaching multiple languages (Ojibwe, Portuguese and Spanish). Currently I am a licensed teacher and have traveled to and studied much of Brazilian language, history and culture. I maintain a strong connection to many Brazilian communities both with Brazil as well as abroad and work to consistently maintain my language skills so that I can best pass on this knowledge to others to better their understanding of modern Portuguese.

Social Studies

I am licensed through the state of Minnesota to teach grades 5-12 in social studies. I have taught social studies professionally in both middle and high school settings. Currently I hold a bachelor's degree in social studies secondary education.
