About Nicholas

I work as a science teacher and tutor for Odessa College. On a daily basis, I help college students and adult learners with their Biology, Chemistry, and English courses. In my time at Odessa College, I have learned a great deal about how to best help students understand complex subject material and succeed in their science and English classes. My approach is to focus on the student's specific, individual needs, and for that reason I prefer to know before the appointment what precise subject the student wants to concentrate on. For example, rather than simply asking for "Biology tutoring", a student might specify that they are focusing on photosynthesis or cellular respiration. Knowing any specific topics the student is focused on allows me to prepare and plan for the tutoring session in advance and generally leads to better results for the student. However, if a student feels they need help with a broad topic (such as studying chemistry in general in order to prep for a comprehensive exam), they may simply ask for "Chemistry tutoring", and that is fine.

In addition to my science background, I also have a bachelor's degree in history. As a result, I have learned what college instructors look for in a good essay and I have used this knowledge many times to help students write essays that achieve high grades. Therefore, I offer tutoring in English as well as in biology and chemistry.

I hope to meet some great students and help them along the path to academic success.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

American History

I earned a Bachelor's degree in History with honors.

Easygoing and polite.

Nicholas met with my 15 year old son for an hour of chemistry. My son was very happy and left feeling confident about the material they reviewed. Wish Nicholas was available during the week! We would probably use him at least once during the week.
