Nicky J


Nicky is originally from Sugar Land, TX. He attended Rice University in Houston, graduating with a 4.0 GPA (Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude) and was named the Sallyport Award winner of his class, the highest honor given to a graduating student. Building on his passion for children’s health and development, he decided to pursue medicine and is currently an MD/MPP candidate at Harvard. He serves as president of his medical school class.

Nicky has tutored a variety of different students from many different backgrounds, ranging from five years of age to seniors in college, so he knows what it takes to tailor his teaching to many different levels. His strong suits include mathematics, chemistry, statistics, and test preparation for the PSAT and SAT, on which he scored a perfect 2400!

In his free time, he loves to play basketball (even though he’s not too great at it), admiring art, and coming up with clever jokes that no one laughs at. He absolutely loves babies, the Houston Rockets, and York Peppermint Patties.

  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "My son's experience with Nicky was truly outstanding. He worked with him for a year altogether, and was sad when it was time for their sessions to end. He did all of his homework regularly and diligently, and brought any questions he had into his sessions with Nicky. Nicky is a superb listener and really came to understand my son as a learner, which made his teaching and support all the more effective. Score went from 1150 to 1390."

    "Cambridge Coaching matched my son with Nicky and it was a great success. Not only did my son's SAT match score rise substantially after just six weeks of tutoring, he enjoyed his time with Nicky and really respected him. They met at the library or at our house. It was well worth the money and went absolutely smoothly."
