"Hello! I'm Nick. I am an occupational therapy graduate student at Florida Gulf Coast University. I've been tutoring here for over a year now and find that my passion lies with helping people who speak English as a second language and also middle / high schoolers who struggle from being forced to try to learn online as a result of the pandemic. I graduated cum laude from Broward College in 2018 with a BAS in Management & Supervision. I had some great professors and learned a great deal about how to reach people individually- to meet them where they are so to speak.

In my free time I read many books on philosophy and metaphysics and I am finding this helpful when explaining ideas and concepts to people. I am able to find out what piques the interest of individuals and then use appropriate analogies and experiences to make whatever material it is I am discussing more digestible and understandable. I have always had a deep respect for teachers and truly enjoy helping people learn and understand.

In high school I had two different English teachers who really hammered grammar into us. At the time, I did not appreciate them but now I do. I have always had a fascination with the mechanics of language. I also understand the limitations of language and can therefore empathize with someone who may have a hard time grasping English, especially as a second language.

I took 4 years of Spanish in high school, 2 in college, and lived with a family from Argentina for 3 years in Michigan. I have always been passionate about the Spanish language and with cultures of South America and Central America. I understand the need to sort of think in a different language and not simply attempt to directly translate. I can understand conceptions behind both English and Spanish and how they differ. I am proficient with written and conversational Spanish." less...
