Test Prep, Math and Science Tutor
Teaching and tutoring have always been things that I enjoy. Even when I studied for my own classes, I would always study in groups and would help teach others concepts I had already cemented in my brain. My first official teaching position was as a Teacher's Assistant at Kalamazoo College in General Chemistry my senior year at Kalamazoo College. I was given a group of 10 students and ran a review/homework session once a week. This job was very fun and I was able to help students really...
Teaching and tutoring have always been things that I enjoy. Even when I studied for my own classes, I would always study in groups and would help teach others concepts I had already cemented in my brain. My first official teaching position was as a Teacher's Assistant at Kalamazoo College in General Chemistry my senior year at Kalamazoo College. I was given a group of 10 students and ran a review/homework session once a week. This job was very fun and I was able to help students really understand the basics of chemistry. I really enjoy taking difficult concepts and rewording or rephrasing them so that anyone can understand them. My goal in tutoring is always to find the language that best works for the student, and use that to bring them to full understanding.
Since March 2015, I have been tutoring exclusively. The lion's share of my work was as a tutor at Mally ACT in West Bloomfield, Michigan. They are a State renowned ACT/SAT/AP and subject tutoring company. At Mally ACT, I was able to fully master the Math and Science sections of the ACT, as well as getting a jump on the math section of the new SAT test. I am very comfortable with all high school math, chemistry and physics through AP. My master's degree is in Inorganic Chemistry, so I can help with any undergraduate chemistry course, Freshman and Sophomore level in college physics (Newtonian Mechanics, Electromagnetism and Modern (Einsteinian) physics) and Math through Calculus 4.
I was 1 class short of a Math Minor. I have taken Calculus 1, 2, 3 and 4 (linear algebra) as well as Differential Equations. I am an expert in the ACT math section and can cover everything in the new SAT math section.
I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy. This means if we have a lesson scheduled and you cancel it within 24 hours of the start time, I will still charge for 1 hour as a cancellation fee.
If you are interested in my services in any way, please feel free to contact me. I am flexible, friendly, easy to talk to and excited to help you with your tutoring needs.
Nick is a very polite and kind person. He was very easy to get in touch with and responded to all my questions in a timely manner. He arrived on time to the scheduled tutoring session. My daughter really likes Nick and is excited to see him the following week to continue learning Math. It is evident that Nick is passionate about teaching and helping young minds grow. I would definitely recommend Nick as a tutor.Susan, 4 lessons with Nicholas
