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. From this, I have a great deal of field, lab and course experience. In 2014, I finished a teaching assistant position in Bermuda where I taught marine invertebrate zoology and aided in a scientific diving course.

I have experience tutoring high school students in the biological sciences, and I also have experience educating children ages 7-16, as I taught marine biology at a summer camp where I was the program director. Additionally, I have informally educated the general public about marine life and environmental stewardship through local outreach organizations.

My writing experience is notable as well. I have won several writing contests and have received funding from many different sources for proposals I have written over the span of the past few years, all for scientific research. Furthermore, I scored in the 95% percentile on the writing portion of the GREs and am well versed in writing and conventions overall, and I can teach some of these skills when it comes to college applications.

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.

Currently, I am a food safety microbiologist and have been in this field for the past three years. I look forward to the opportunity to teach you or your child!
