About this tutor

InkWell Academy is a premier tutoring service catering to students who desire to take their writing skills to the next level. I graduated from Princeton University in 2017 with a degree in History, and completed a 110-page senior thesis alongside dozens of other top-tier writing assignments. If you want a personal writing coach who knows academic writing inside-out at the highest levels, look no further than InkWell Academy.

My writing philosophy centers on two skills that I seek to impart to every student: passion and discipline. Without true passion for the subject at hand, writing is just another chore. Without the discipline to set aside time and space for writing, your results and progress will be lackluster. I coach each student through setting a personal writing plan that commits them to their goals, and we begin each assignment by connecting the subject matter to an area of your interest. Writing can be fun, productive, and effective when you set yourself up to succeed!

    Nick helped me dramatically improve my communication and professional writing skills. I'm writing with more confidence after using InkWell Academy. He's an incredibly clear thinker and compassionate tutor who really takes the time to get to know each of the people he works with and make them the best writers and thinkers they can be.

    Nick is an amazing teacher and working with him has helped me take my English writing and speaking skills to the next level! I am so happy to have found him. Not only is he really patient and effective, he is also very knowledgeable which makes our sessions so interesting and stimulating. I truly love learning with him and I would recommend InkWell to anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of the English language whether they are beginners or more advanced.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

There is no typical process at InkWell Academy, because I've found that there is no typical student. That's why our first consultation is free: to assess your skill level and needs so that we can create a personalized training plan just for you. However, no matter whether you are looking for SAT tutoring, college essay support, or even public speaking coaching, we will always be focusing on how to express yourself beautifully in the English language and have fun while doing so.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

In 2017, I graduated from Princeton University with a degree in Global History. As the nation's #1-ranked college, Princeton has a notorious reputation for its intensive writing standards. To complete my degree, I authored a 110-page thesis and received an A grade. This meant working hand-in-hand with a professor for over a year to produce an original contribution to global history. By completing this and other challenges at Princeton, I became well-acquainted with each step of the writing process. I look forward to teaching you, your son, or your daughter all that I have learned about writing with passion, flair, and excellence.

How did you get started teaching?

After graduating from college I worked for a tutoring service for elite students in NYC/NJ prep schools. What I quickly realized was that tutoring companies are severely over-charging families, and then paying their tutors less than 50% per lesson. I founded InkWell Academy to bring you the same services offered by elite tutoring services for a fraction of the price. Our business is committed to delivering excellent learning outcomes for excellent prices.


What types of students have you worked with?

InkWell Academy is focused on improving your writing skills wherever they are needed. These types of students have found success with us in the past:

- Elite high school students looking for a leg up in the college admissions process through SAT prep and essay support

- High school students who need an extra boost in their English, History, Public Speaking, or Creative Writing classes

- New immigrants seeking to improve their everyday communication skills: reading, writing, and conversation

- Learners of all ages who want to become persuasive and successful public speakers

- Creative writers seeking to improve their craft and/or finish their first novel, short story, or contest submission


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently, I expanded the scope of my business again when a new customer asked if I could teach English as a second language to his family members from another country. It turns out that offering one-on-one tutoring services to new English learners is both rewarding and fun, and allows new English speakers to progress much faster than group classes.
