About Nick


Bio

I am a retired math teacher with thirty-one years of experience with the New York City Department of Education. I hold a New York City Junior High School Mathematics Teacher License, a New York State Permanent Certification as a Mathematics Grades 7-12 Teacher & a New York State Permanent Certification as an Administrator/Supervisor.

I am a retired math teacher with thirty-one years of experience with the New York City Department of Education. I hold a New York City Junior High School Mathematics Teacher License, a New York State Permanent Certification as a Mathematics Grades 7-12 Teacher & a New York State Permanent Certification as an Administrator/Supervisor. When I taught at Passages Academy, I was perceived by my colleagues to be a Math Word Problem Specialist. I, with the help of my colleague, was able to reach and challenge students with special needs in the area of Mathematics A topics. I received positive feedback from supervisors who observed me teaching mean and median and algebra word problems to students with special needs. They were able to absorb and regurgitate the material. I care very deeply for my students and am anxious to see them succeed. The principal of the school told me that I teach from the heart. In 1999, I received a public service award from the City of New York. I got a glowing observation report from my supervisor who witnessed me teach the application of signed numbers to basic math students. I was invited to submit the lesson to the Auxiliary Services for High School Curriculum Handbook. I also taught GED Math two nights a week at Benjamin Cardozo High School for the 2004-2005 school year where a 95% passing rate was achieved. I also had the rewarding experience of teaching math and science to English as a Second Language students. I feel that I bring a lot of knowledge and experience to the table and I feel I have a lot to offer.

Nick has been very patient with my son and is genuinely concerned about how he does on the SAT. I can recommend him without reservations.
