AP Biology & AP Chem Tutor
Nick grew up in Southern California and also spent several years living in the Bay Area. He graduated with a bachelor's degree from UC Berkeley in Molecular and Cell Biology, focusing his studies particularly on neurobiology and the science of learning. His tutoring work began in college when he realized his talent at explaining math and science concepts to fellow classmates, and transitioned into over a decade of helping students with AP subjects and test preparation. This experience coupled with his interest in the mechanics behind how people learn, eventually led him to pursue a career as a credentialed high school science teacher. He has spent time as a classroom biology and chemistry instructor, as well as developed, coordinated, and implemented curriculum at a district level. Outside of education, he enjoys exploring the outdoors, tending to his vegetable garden, and collecting gnomes.
