    It was great experience to work with Nick for College Essays. He understands the needs and goes to very specific details about the subject. I will recommend him for anyone who wants to revisit their college essays or want to make it better or even proof read it he can be the go to person. I have my son who had sessions with him is extremely pleased with the outcome.

    My daughter always did well in school until the sats came along. This was the most challening time for her academically. Her guidance counselor recommended Nick to help her. He got right to work. He made the test relevant to her needs. His experience and knowledge of the test guided my daughter to a great score. Thank you, thank you!

    What a great advisor for college application help. He helped my daughter target colleges that were a good fit for her and write exceptional essays that captured her personality. He also helped her boost her reading sat score when he saw that was the weakest part of her app.

  • Jacob Onafort

    My son had a great experience with Nick. I wish we had met him sooner as it would have saved my son week's of difficulty trying to study for the SAT and ACts on his own. Thank you Nick for all you have done for him.

How did you get started teaching?

I started tutoring in college when I noticed students were struggling to ace their subject matter, standardized tests, and college applications. That's when I applied my knowledge to help them become the best candidates possible. For more information, see tutormenick.com or email nickmosca at post dot harvard dot edu

I have worked with students across the country to improve their standardized test scores, college application essays, and GPA. This is my passion and privilege. For more information, see tutormenick.com or email nickmosca at post dot harvard dot edu


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A recent project I am fond of was helping a client prepare for her SAT under a tight deadline. Within a span of two weeks, I helped identify her areas of weakness and provided strategies that quickly helped address her learning gaps. As a result of daily, intensive tutoring, her score improved by over 120 points!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

If customers are looking to hire a provider in the area of college and SAT/ACT preparation, they should ask what certificates and formal work experience they have. I am honored to be a certified Princeton Review standardized test instructor and have served as a Georgetown University Alumni Admissions Officer. I frequently draw upon this work experience throughout my sessions with clients.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1) How many years of formal work experience in this field do you have? 2) What are some common challenges you face and how do you address them? 3) What is your preferred method of communication? 4) What response time can I expect from you? 5) How do you address the fact that each student has different learning styles and interests? 6) Do you offer stress-reduction services?
