About Nils


Bio

Hi, I'm Nils! I graduated from Lawrence University with cum laude in an independent study. As someone who has tutored through high school and college, I have many years of experience tutoring in subjects related to Math, ESL (English as a Second Language), Government, and History. I enjoy tutoring because seeing someone work hard and develop their knowledge or skills is incredibly rewarding.

Hi, I'm Nils! I graduated from Lawrence University with cum laude in an independent study. As someone who has tutored through high school and college, I have many years of experience tutoring in subjects related to Math, ESL (English as a Second Language), Government, and History. I enjoy tutoring because seeing someone work hard and develop their knowledge or skills is incredibly rewarding.

I found that the best teachers were the ones who were empathetic and would rearticulate an idea if someone had trouble understanding. Sometimes just explaining a concept a different way is all that's needed. I also found that teachers who communicated openly and with whom I had a good relationship with (friendly and respectful) were the ones I learned the best from. Based on these experiences, I try to emulate these qualities in my tutoring style so we can have a pleasant and productive session!

I have always had an affinity for math. I was a nerd who studied for math competitions since elementary school and have had a strong understanding of how to read and simplify math problems in a stressful setting. I competed in MathCounts, AMC 10 and 12, the AIME, and among other competitions. The skills needed for these competitions carry over to standardized tests (I have a 36 on the ACT Math). I have tutored a middle school student on Algebra I and for the ACT for a couple of years now and I'm excited to see his development in the next few years! I can tutor for math competitions, ACT prep, or courses up to Pre-Calc (my Calculus is a little rusty).

I'm Japanese American and have many friends from East Asia. The challenges of learning Japanese myself and my desire to help my friends learn English motivated me to act as a teacher's assistant and tutor for my college's ESL class. I have tutored 7-9 hours a week for most of 3 years and have helped my colleagues learn how to communicate to English speaking climbers when I have worked on Mt. Fuji in Japan for two summers. I can tutor for all levels.
