About Nick


Bio

I'm a senior undergrad working toward a degree in biology. I love learning and teaching others. I've participated in a number of research opportunities and conferences and so I have a lot of practice in conveying complex ideas within a digestible framework. Through these experiences, I've come to learn that acquiring and spreading knowledge is one of the most fulfilling things I can do.

I'm a senior undergrad working toward a degree in biology. I love learning and teaching others. I've participated in a number of research opportunities and conferences and so I have a lot of practice in conveying complex ideas within a digestible framework. Through these experiences, I've come to learn that acquiring and spreading knowledge is one of the most fulfilling things I can do.

I hope to help other budding science students develop their sense of scientific thinking. My only experience with tutoring so far is when I helped tutor my peers in an organic chemistry course I was taking. I've had my fair share of obstacles along the road of education and many of these were overcome with the help of a tutor or classmate with a better grasp of the subject. It means a lot to me to be able to pay it forward to others now going through similar trouble.

I've gotten As in a number of 400 level bio courses such as Coastal Biology, Symbiosis, Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy, Animal Behavior, and the Uses of Plants. In addition to these, I've also received high marks in other undergraduate science course such as Organic Chemistry, Physics, Genetics, Ecology, and Cell Biology. I've also taken the American History and European History Advanced Placement tests in high school and received a grade of 4 on both. My current GPA in college is 3.7.

I've organized and conducted several research projects in college for which I've received awards and recognition at various research fairs and conferences. I've also applied for and received several grants including the Erickson Discovery Grant and the Student Engagement Grant, both from Penn State University, totaling several thousand dollars to conduct this research. Some of my research topics include effects of deer browse on forest regeneration and learning and memory in plants.

Give me a chance to help you! Send me an email and I will reply ASAP. I look forward to learning with you.

I earned straight A's in my high school's Russian honors course all four years I attended. Through that program, I also attended a Russian Olympiad competition in Philadelphia every year, earning silver and gold medals. My fascination for the language continues to this day and keep myself practiced when I can.

American History

I passed both AP US and European History with a score of 4. I also received As in my high school honors Comparative World Studies, a class looking at geopolitics and culture on a global level. I maintain an avid interest and love of history to this day. I really enjoy studying history as well as being able to teach it to others.

Algebra 1

I received high grades in algebra 1 and other math courses throughout high school, including trigonometry and precalculus. I'm now a senior in pursuit of a bio major, which has required me to pass courses like calculus and algebra based physics, so I'm well practiced.

I'll be graduating in May with a major in biology from Penn State so I have experience in a broad range of biological topics. I've received As in all of my bio classes in addition to taking part in multiple research projects, ranging from surveys for invasive tree pests to learning in plants. I have a deep passion for biology and would love to help you further your knowledge of this field.

Botany

As an undergrad student, I've designed and conducted several research projects based on plant science. Specifically, these include a survey measuring the effects of deer browse on forest regeneration, a survey of Ash trees for invasive parasites, and a study on learning and memory in sensitive plants (Mimosa pudica). Additionally, I have earned high grades in several courses dealing with plant biology and ecology.
