Nicholas

Bio

Nicholas graduated from California Institute of Technology where he earned a B.S. in Mathematics. Nicholas grew up in Tampa, Florida where he graduated first in his high school class. During high school he completed the mathematics curriculum for a B.A. in Mathematics at the University of South Florida. As an undergraduate, Nicholas began research at the Francis Bitter Magnet Lab at MIT, which earned him the honors of Semifinalist in both the Intel STS and Siemens Competitions. At Caltech, Nicholas researched list colorings of graphs and magnetic topological insulators at the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter during the SURF program. He presented his research on topological insulators at the 2013 APS March Meeting.

An enthusiastic tutor for the past seven years, Nicholas hopes to help students understand the beauty and intricacies math and physics have to offer. He works with high school and college students to support their coursework in mathematics, computer science and physics, and with high school students to prepare for the mathematics and physics AP exams and SAT Subject tests.

In his free time Nicholas enjoys producing electronic music and making computer art.

Testimonials
  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "Nicholas explained abstract concepts in visual aspects and made them easier to understand. He was essentially able to teach me statistics and calculus entirely since I had no prior exposure."

  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "[What did your do well?] Went through math concepts with me very patiently until I fully understood it and was available very frequently to have sessions with me. I went from a 59% on the test before I started tutoring to 100% on the next test and an 80% on the final bringing me from failing to passing with a C."
