About Nicholas

I am currently a Biology student at the University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown. I am also a paid tutor for the university and have been in the position for two years. In my opinion, effective learning stems from teaching the student not only what they need to know, but also the mechanics behind the concept. I base my tutoring method around that very concept, dissecting the material to give the student a full conceptual understanding. This, combined with solid foundational knowledge, will allow the student to learn new concepts with relative ease, and master course content.

I find teaching skills and course content to students to be a quite fulfilling experience. Throughout most of my secondary educational career I struggled learning course content, and understanding material. Eventually, I figured out how to learn, and I think this is a place where most students struggle. Coming from this type of background I believe I am particularly competent teaching struggling students material. I understand where the place they are in, and I know how to give them the tools they need to advance in their academic career. In addition, I enjoy it when a struggling student comes to me for tutoring help, and is able to turn the class around, eventually becoming extremely competent. That is, in my opinion, the goal of any tutor, and I accomplish it quite often.

If you are struggling, and you feel like you just cannot understand the material, contact me. I can show you exactly how to learn the material, and take you from insufficient to the top of your class.
