Nathan hails from the San Fernando Valley in California, a suburb outside of Los Angeles, though he likes to insist he’s from L.A. proper. As soon as he had the opportunity, Nathan migrated to the east coast to attend Princeton University, where he majored in physics with a minor in applied math. In college, his interests evolved from experimental plasmas and atomic physics to quantum fields and string theory. Nathan graduated Summa Cum Laude (highest honors) with a 3.9 GPA, becoming a member of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. With a newfound passion for theoretical physics and mathematics, he is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in physics at Harvard University, researching the mathematical rules that govern the most fundamental physics in our Universe.
Nathan has 6 years of extensive tutoring experience and enjoys working with students of all ages and experience levels. Due to his previous role as an official tutor for Princeton University, he specializes in undergraduate tutoring for introductory math and and physics courses, e.g. Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Calculus, and Linear algebra. He also has experience in tutoring high school students in a wide range of subjects, including AP Physics as well as Trigonometry & Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus, and AP Statistics. Nathan has privately tutored both SAT and ACT as well.
Outside of academics, Nathan spends the majority of his free time sharpening his skills in the kitchen, playing a variety of roleplaying games with friends, and obsessing over cute dog videos on the internet.
