Nicks Math Tutoring Service
My name is Nick and I have 12+ years of experience, tutoring, high school, and college level math and physics. I have worked for my local school districts high school tutoring program as well as my local community college. And after getting my degree in aplied mathematics I decided to do private tutoring whenever I can. I have experience tutoring every type of student, from those with learning disabilities, to "A" students who just want to keep up the good work. If you're local, I can do at home tutoring, or if you're not local, I can offer remote tutoring via zoom.

Being dyslexic and having learning disabilities myself I have taking everything I've learned about getting through school and try passing along lessons I have learned.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Mathematics is not hard to learn. Most students underestimate their capabilities. Unfortunately the rapid pace school must go in order to fulfill state testing makes things difficult. The job as a Tutor is to go back and refine your understanding. With years of experience I know how to explain things in greater detail that make more sense that a teacher or professor does not have time to do. The best part of mathematics is that there is so many different approaches to a problem. If one approach doesn't make sense I can show you another that will. As the student you still have to put in the work to study but I can be there to assist and make sure you are on the right path to success.
