    He kind of strung me a long for a bit. Put my son on a waitlist then never heard back. Fourtunately I was able to find someone else in a pinch!

  • Maurice S.

    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!

  • Diane Zheng

    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.

  • Jake O.

    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 on his own. Thank you, Nick, for all you have done for him.

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

The typical process is, as follows: Session 1: A Solid Foundation For Success Take a Proprietary Learning Styles & Interests Questionnaire. Relating subject matter to each student’s interests results in greater engagement throughout the learning process. "Nick’s Comprehensive Guide for Easy Points." Reviewing and memorizing these time-tested strategies empowers students to quickly and easily boost their scores. Homework Diagnostic. Before the first session concludes, students will be assigned an abbreviated diagnostic exam under time constraints, relaxation technique practice, and will need to obtain a silent watch and workbook. Subsequent Sessions: Growing A Stellar Score...and Chance of Admission Diagnostic Review. Students will review the results of the diagnostic exam with Nick. Together, they will then draft an individualized lesson plan with specific goals that address the areas in which improvement is needed. Ongoing Practice & Feedback. Homework in the form of practice exams and other assignments will be assigned regularly. These assignments are accompanied by progress reports and student feedback surveys.

I started tutoring in college when I noticed students were struggling to ace their subject matter, standardized tests, and college applications.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A recent event 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.
