About Nick

I have worked with youth programs in the NYC area for over 5 years and have focused primarily on my skill sets in math, science, chess, and basketball. Attending Ivy League schools for undergraduate and graduate school, as well as years of working with admissions departments for colleges and private schools in my coaching experiences, I excel at test prep and application building. However, despite my personal accolades in the realms of math, science, chess, and basketball, my main goal is relating to the student and being able to help them engage with their material. Much of this is by using as many examples as possible and asking the students questions that mix both simple logic building principles as well as complex free-response opportunities.
