Hello, my name is Nicholas. I have been a student at the University of St. Thomas pursuing degrees in philosophy and classical languages for the past couple of years. Additionally, I attended St. John Vianney Seminary for a total of 14 months. My method of learning and teaching is centered around common sense understanding. Unfortunately, most teaching programs used in schools today, especially in math, are based on quick memorization rather than actual understanding and fundamental reasoning... [more]


Algebra 1

I have passed courses in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-calculus, and Calculus all with an 'A'. I have a very strong understanding of the fundamental concepts of mathematics and reasoning. I also have a lot of experience helping my younger siblings with their math homework.

English

I have earned an 'A' in all of my English courses in high school and in my college English course. I have been an avid reader since elementary school which has developed within me a natural instinct for style and vocabulary. I also have the ability to write essays very professionally and many others have sought my advice/review concerning their writings. I am very knowledgeable on English grammar and root words due to my study of Latin (I am currently pursuing a degree in Classical Languages at the University of St. Thomas).


Proofreading


Physical Science

In High School I passed a physical science course with an 'A'. I have also passed college chemistry, algebra-based physics, and calculus-based physics all with an 'A'. Additionally, I was a TA (teacher's assistant) to my physics instructor.


ACT English

I have earned an 'A' in all of my English courses in high school and in my college English course. I have been an avid reader since elementary school which has developed within me a natural instinct for style and vocabulary. I am also very knowledgeable on English grammar and root words due to my study of Latin (I am currently pursuing a degree in Classical Languages at the University of St. Thomas). Additionally, I have taken the ACT multiple times and so have a good idea of how to prepare for it.


ACT Math

I have passed courses in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-calculus, and Calculus all with an 'A'. I have a very strong understanding of the fundamental concepts of mathematics and reasoning, and I have taken the ACT multiple times and so have a good idea on how to prepare for it. I also have a lot of experience helping my younger siblings with their math homework.

Logic

I am currently earning a Philosophy degree at the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul. I have taken a University course specifically on Logic with two additional philosophy courses incorporating Logic. I have studied Aristotelian logic, propositional logic, modal logic, and quantitative logic.


Fitness

I have always had a passion for athletics/physical fitness and have studied this field extensively. Through my childhood and high school I have participated in a number of sports, including swimming, track and field, hockey, basketball, soccer, wrestling, football, triathlons, and recreational down-hill and cross-country skiing. I have also been an NCAA collegiate athlete (swimmer) for two seasons. I have studied and done muscular weight training, body-weight training, core training, general conditioning, cardiovascular training, and specific sports training (especially running and swimming).
