Nick has been outstanding with my son! He is positive yet honest, very, very encouraging, does not seem to waste time with things my son already knows, and makes tutoring tolerable, since no kid wants to be tutored, especially in the summer. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

The one thing that separated the great tutors from the good ones was good communication. I'm a big fan of listening to a student's specific goals and then creating a plan that will fit their learning style. Because of this method, I like to ask new students a lot of questions regarding what their long-term and shor... ... More
