About Nicholas

I am a graduate from the University of Rhode Island. I received my B.S. in marine biology in the fall of 2013 and my B.S. in cell and molecular biology in spring of 2014.

I have a great deal of field and lab experience as well as course experience. I just finished a teaching assistant position at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences, where I taught marine invertebrate zoology.

I have experience tutoring high school students in the biological sciences, and I also have experience educating children ages 7-16, as I held a job teaching marine biology at a summer camp for the past two years.

When teaching, I like to start off small and be slow and deliberate, introducing information as premises. With each new premise accepted as it is understood, they can be put together and pave the way to larger concepts, which is not only beneficial content-wise, but will foster critical thinking, observation, and make the pupil a more powerful thinker overall.

My writing experience is excellent as well. I have won numerous writing contests and have received funding from many different sources for proposals I have written in the past year, all for scientific research. I scored in the 95% percentile on the writing portion of the GREs and am well versed in writing and conventions overall.
